Knowledge quotes
Knowledge
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.

- Confucius
How dreadful knowledge of the truth can be When there's no help in truth!

- Sophocles
Our knowledge is the amassed thought and experience of innumerable minds.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
What wisdom can there be to choose, what continence to forbear without the knowledge of evil? He that can apprehend and consider vice with all her baits and seeming pleasures, and yet abstain, and yet distinguish, and yet prefer that which is truly better, he is the true wayfaring Christian.

- Milton, John
Knowledge can be communicated, but wisdom cannot. A man can find it, he can live it, he can be filled and sustained by it, but he cannot utter or teach it.

- Hermann Hesse
In conversation, humor is worth more than wit and easiness more than knowledge.

- Herbert, George
We are now in the third stage of the industrial revolution. The first involved machines which extended human muscle; the second used machines to extend the human nervous system (radio, television, telephones); the third is now utilizing machines which extend the human mind-computers. About half of all service workers (43 percent of the labor force by 2000) will be involved in collecting, analyzing, synthesizing, structuring, storing, or retrieving information... By 1995, 80 percent of all management will be knowledge workers.

- Davies, Owen
A man can know nothing of mankind without knowing something of himself. Self-knowledge is the property of that man whose passions have their full play, but who ponders over their results.

- Benjamin Disraeli
Love comes from blindness, friendship from knowledge.

- Bussy-Rabutin, Comte De
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles at it.

- Margaret Fuller
Perplexity is the beginning of knowledge.

- Gibran, Kahlil
For the truth of the conclusions of physical science, observation is the supreme Court of Appeal. It does not follow that every item which we confidently accept as physical knowledge has actually been certified by the Court; our confidence is that it would be certified by the Court if it were submitted. But it does follow that every item of physical knowledge is of a form which might be submitted to the Court. It must be such that we can specify (although it may be impracticable to carry out) an observational procedure which would decide whether it is true or not. Clearly a statement cannot be tested by observation unless it is an assertion about the results of observation. Every item of physical knowledge must therefore be an assertion of what has been or would be the result of carrying out a specified observational procedure.

- Sir Arthur Eddington
Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world.

- Louis Pasteur
Discussion is an exchange of knowledge; argument an exchange of ignorance.

- Robert Quillen
Getting along with men isn't what's truly important. The vital knowledge is how to get along with one man.

- Phyllis McGinley
If knowledge can create problems, it is not through ignorance that we can solve them.

- Isaac Asimov
A novel that does not uncover a hitherto unknown segment of existence is immoral. Knowledge is the novel's only morality.

- Kundera, Milan
An eclectic, if it mean anything, means this--one who in any branch of art or science refuses to acknowledge Bacon's great law, that "Nature is only conquered by obeying her;" who will not take a full and reverent view of the whole mass of facts with which he has to deal, and from them deducing the fundamental laws of his subject, obey them whithersoever they may lead; but who picks and chooses out of them just so many as may be pleasant to his private taste, and then constructs a partial system which differs from the essential ideas of Nature in proportion to the number of facts which he has determined to discard.

- Miscellanies. 1849.
Wisdom is knowledge which has become a part of one's being.

- Orison Swett Marden
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife. However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered as the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters.

- Jane Austen
