Doubt, Knowledge: Uncertainty vs. Certainty

Sir Francis Bacon said,
"If we begin with certainties, we shall end in doubts; but if we begin with doubts, and are patient with them, we shall end with certainties"

I think even we begin with doubt, and are patient, we will end with uncertainty. However, this time we are aware of this fact that we do not know many things. I believe that knowing about our ignorance is an important part of our knowledge and the most ignorant one is a person who does not know that she/ he is does not know many things!
