This quote comes from “Chapter X: Zero-One-Two” in Miss Missy’s School Book I: A Pack of Farm Dogs Starts a School. This is a funny chapter! I don’t want to give it away, but the premise is that Bebe thinks she knows how to do something, and Jordan tells her she’s doing it wrong. But she won’t believe him. Even as he tries to explain it to her, she insists she’s doing it correctly. Finally, in frustration, Bebe says,

After Bebe and Tommy head down to the lake, the Big Dogs have a discussion about the episode and there’s this exchange.

Right on. As someone once said, ‘It isn’t what we don’t know that gives us trouble, it’s what we know that ain’t so’,” quoted Gilbert raising his brow.
