Knowledge quotes

Sorrow is knowledge, those that know the most must mourn the deepest, the tree of knowledge is not the tree of life.

- Byron, Lord

Is there something in trade that desiccates and flattens out, that turns men into dried leaves at the age of forty? Certainly there is. It is not due to trade but to intensity of self-seeking, combined with narrowness of occupation. Business has destroyed the very knowledge in us of all other natural forces except business.

- Chapman, John Jay

Security... it's simply the recognition that changes will take place and the knowledge that you're willing to deal with whatever happens.

- Browne, Harry

All the knowledge I possess everyone else can acquire, but my heart is all my own.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Knowledge fills a large brain; it merely inflates a small one.


Knowledge rests not upon truth alone, but upon error also.

- Carl Jung

He who seeks to approach his own buried past must conduct himself like a man digging. He must not be afraid to return again and again to the same matter; to scatter it as one scatters earth, to turn it over as one turns over soil. For the matter itself is only a deposit, a stratum, which yields only to the most meticulous examination what constitutes the real treasure hidden within the earth: the images, severed from all earlier associations, that stand --like precious fragments or torsos in a collector's gallery --in the prosaic rooms of our later understanding.

- Benjamin, Walter

The acquiring of culture is the development of an avid hunger for knowledge and beauty.

- Bennett, Jesse

To know yourself you have only to set down a true statement of those that ever loved or hated you.

- Lavater, Johann Kaspar

In the world of knowledge, the essential Form of Good is the limit of our inquiries, and can barely be perceived; but, when perceived, we cannot help concluding that it is in every case the source of all that is bright and beautiful --in the visible world giving birth to light and its master, and in the intellectual world dispensing, immediately and with full authority, truth and reason --and that whosoever would act wisely, either in private or in public, must set this Form of Good before his eyes.

- Plato

Good to sell knowledge for labor, honor for risk.

- Proverb, Arabian

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]

- Bible

Faith, noun. Belief without evidence in what is told by one who speaks without knowledge, of things without parallel

- Ambrose Bierce

If youth but had the knowledge and old age the strength.

- Proverb, French

To know oneself, one should assert oneself. Psychology is action, not thinking about oneself. We continue to shape our personality all our life. If we knew ourselves perfectly, we should die.

- Camus, Albert

Bodily exercise, when compulsory, does no harm to the body; but knowledge which is acquired under compulsion obtains no hold on the mind.

- Plato

Only divine love bestows the keys of knowledge.

- Rimbaud, Arthur

O fret not after knowledge -- I have none, and yet my song comes native with the warmth. O fret not after knowledge -- I have none, and yet the Evening listens.

- Keats, John

They are so knowing, that they know nothing.

- Terence

The torment of human frustration, whatever its immediate cause, is the knowledge that the self is in prison, its vital force and mangled mind leaking away in lonely, wasteful self-conflict.

- Drew, Elizabeth
