- Addison, Joseph
Knowledge Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
Knowledge and timber shouldn't be much used till they are seasoned.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

2.
Knowledge always demands increase; it is like fire, which must first be kindled by some external agent, but will afterwards always propagate itself.
Johnson, Samuel

3.
Try to put well in practice what you already know. In so doing, you will, in good time, discover the hidden things you now inquire about.
Rembrandt (Harmenszoon van Rijn)

4.
You can always draw as well as you know how to. I flatter myself that I feel more than I express on canvas; but I know that is not so.
Hunt, William Morris

5.
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
Ball, Lucille

6.
We own almost all our knowledge not to those who have agreed but to those who have differed.
Colton, Charles Caleb

7.
The long unmeasured pulse of time moves everything. There is nothing hidden that it cannot bring to light, nothing once known that may not become unknown.
Sophocles

8.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
Addison, Joseph

9.
We are drowning in information and starving for knowledge.
Roger, Rutherford D.

10.
True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
Gracian, Baltasar

11.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
Bible

12.
There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
Morrison, Jim

13.
I would have the studies elective. Scholarship is to be created not by compulsion, but by awakening a pure interest in knowledge. The wise instructor accomplishes this by opening to his pupils precisely the attractions the study has for himself. The marking is a system for schools, not for the college; for boys, not for men; and it is an ungracious work to put on a professor.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

14.
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
Bertrand Russell

15.
Sin, guilt, neurosis --they are one and the same, the fruit of the tree of knowledge.
Miller, Henry

16.
And all your future lies beneath your hat.
Oldham, John

17.
The next best thing to knowing something is knowing where to find it.
Johnson, Samuel

18.
The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that ain't so.
Twain, Mark

19.
Own more than thou showest, speak less than thou knowest.
Shakespeare, William

20.
A wise man, when asked how he had learned so much about everything, replied: By never being ashamed or afraid to ask questions about anything of which I was ignorant.

21.
You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
Traherne, Thomas

22.
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self.
Franklin, Benjamin

23.
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

24.
To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge.
Benjamin Disraeli

25.
Knowledge is power. Rather, knowledge is happiness, because to have knowledge -- broad, deep knowledge -- is to know true ends from false, and lofty things from low. To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man's progress is to feel the great heartthrobs of humanity through the centuries; and if one does not feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life.
Keller, Helen

26.
The knower and the known are one. Simple people imagine that they should see God as if he stood there and they here. This is not so. God and I, we are one in knowledge.
Eckhart, Meister

27.
It is nothing for one to know something unless another knows you know it.
Proverb, Persian

28.
Many of us don't have to turn out the lights to be in the dark.

29.
A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don't know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox's or bear's, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there.
Eckhart, Meister

30.
You can't know too much, but you can say too much.
Coolidge, Calvin

31.
Far better is it to know everything of a little than a little of everything.
Pickering

32.
The tree of knowledge is not the tree of life! And yet can we cast out of our spirits all the good or evil poured into them by so many learned generations? Ignorance cannot be learned.
Nerval, Gerard De

33.
Knowledge is power.
Sir Francis Bacon

34.
An age is called Dark not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it.
Michener, James A.

35.
Never by reflection, but only by doing is self-knowledge possible to one.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

36.
Some students drink at the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.

37.
Convinced myself, I seek not to convince.
Edgar Allan Poe

38.
A man can only attain knowledge with the help of those who possess it. This must be understood from the very beginning. One must learn from him who knows.
Gurdjieff, George

39.
We have an opportunity for everyone in the world to have access to all the world's information. This has never before been possible. Why is ubiquitous information so profound? It's a tremendous equalizer. Information is power.
Eric Schmidt

40.
Man is not weak; knowledge is more than equivalent to force.
Johnson, Samuel

41.
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

42.
I was born not knowing and have had only a little time to change that here and there.
Richard Feynman

43.
Today knowledge has power. It controls access to opportunity and advancement.
Drucker, Peter F.

44.
Many a man who has known himself at ten forgets himself utterly between ten and thirty.
Bowen, Catherine Drinker

45.
People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge.
Lao-tzu

46.
The less you know, the more you think you know, because you don't know you don't know.
Stevens, Ray

47.
We forge gradually our greatest instrument for understanding the world -- introspection. We discover that humanity may resemble us very considerably -- that the best way of knowing the inwardness of our neighbors is to know ourselves.
Lippmann, Walter

48.
It is what we think we know already that often prevents us from learning.
Bernard, Claude

49.
Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
Samuel Johnson

50.
The desire of knowledge, like the thirst for riches, increases ever with the acquisition of it.
Sterne, Laurence
