Knowledge quotes
Knowledge
All meaningful and lasting change starts first in your imagination and then works its way out. Imagination is more important than knowledge.

- Einstein, Albert
Every man gets a narrower and narrower field of knowledge in which he must be an expert in order to compete with other people. The specialist knows more and more about less and less and finally knows everything about nothing.

- Lorenz, Konrad
When a person acts without knowledge of what he thinks, feels, needs or wants, he does not yet have the option of choosing to act differently.

- Moustakas, Clark
Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.

- Reagan, Ronald
All science requires mathematics. The knowledge of mathematical things is almost innate in us. This is the easiest of sciences, a fact which is obvious in that no one's brain rejects it; for laymen and people who are utterly illiterate know how to count and reckon.

- Bacon, Roger
Suppose that we are wise enough to learn and know -- and yet not wise enough to control our learning and knowledge, so that we use it to destroy ourselves? Even if that is so, knowledge remains better than ignorance. It is better to know -- even if the knowledge endures only for the moment that comes before destruction -- than to gain eternal life at the price of a dull and swinish lack of comprehension of a universe that swirls unseen before us in all its wonder. That was the choice of Achilles, and it is mine, too.

- Asimov, Isaac
It is an infantile superstition of the human spirit that virginity would be thought a virtue and not the barrier that separates ignorance from knowledge

- Voltaire
I see men ordinarily more eager to discover a reason for things than to find out whether the things are so.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
If you would inform, a positive and dogmatic manner in advancing your sentiments may provoke contradiction and prevent a candid attention. If you wish information and improvement from the knowledge of others, and yet at the same time express yourself as firmly fixed in your present opinions, modest, sensible men, who do not love disputation, will probably leave you undisturbed in the possession of your error.

- Crane, Frank
Better indeed is knowledge than mechanical practice. Better than knowledge is meditation. But better still is surrender of attachment to results, because there follows immediate peace.

- Bhagavad Gita
A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.

- Castaneda, Carlos
He knows the universe and does not know himself.

- La Fontaine, Jean De
The doorstep to the temple of wisdom is the knowledge of our own ignorance.

- Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
The knowledge of an unlearned man is living and luxuriant like a forest, but covered with mosses and lichens and for the most part inaccessible and going to waste; the knowledge of the man of science is like timber collected in yards for public works, which still supports a green sprout here and there, but even this is liable to dry rot.

- Thoreau, Henry David
True science investigates and brings to human perception such truths and such knowledge as the people of a given time and society consider most important. Art transmits these truths from the region of perception to the region of emotion.

- Tolstoy, Count Leo
Knowledge is love and light and vision.

- Helen Keller
It is better to sit alone than in company with the bad; and it is, better still to sit with the good than alone. It is better to speak to a seeker of knowledge than to remain silent; but silence is better than idle words.

- Prophet Mohammed
One thing at least I have learnt, he said, "in all my experiments on poor humanity--never to see a man do a wrong thing without feeling I could do the same in his place. I used to pride myself on that once, fool that I was, and call it comprehensiveness. I used to make it an excuse for sitting by and seeing the devil have it all his own way, and call that toleration. I will see now whether I cannot turn the said knowledge to a better account, as common sense, patience, and charity, and yet do work of which neither I nor my country need be ashamed."

- Two Years Ago, chap. xxiii. 1856.
The shortest and surest way of arriving at real knowledge is to unlearn the lessons we have been taught, to mount the first principles, and take nobody's word about them.

- Henry Bolingbroke
Science may set limits to knowledge, but should not set limits to imagination.

- Bertrand Russell
