“Where ignorance is bliss, ’tis folly to be wise” – an idiom that tells us it is better to remain unaware of things that may cause stress and upset. It comes from the Thomas Gray poem, “Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College”
And here we have a bit more folly:
The Bath House folly, Wrest Park, Bedfordshire, August 2018
This folly, ‘The Bath House’ at Wrest Park, was built in 1770 by Edward Stevens. It shows that folly can be fun, not just foolish.
