Best Quotes about Knowledge
Knowledge and timber shouldn't be much used till they are seasoned.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
Knowledge always demands increase; it is like fire, which must first be kindled by some external agent, but will afterwards always propagate itself.
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)
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
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
We own almost all our knowledge not to those who have agreed but to those who have differed.
Colton, Charles Caleb
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.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
We are drowning in information and starving for knowledge.
Roger, Rutherford D.
True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
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
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
Sin, guilt, neurosis --they are one and the same, the fruit of the tree of knowledge.
And all your future lies beneath your hat.
The next best thing to knowing something is knowing where to find it.
The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that ain't so.
Own more than thou showest, speak less than thou knowest.
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.
You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self.
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.
To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge.
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.
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.
It is nothing for one to know something unless another knows you know it.
Many of us don't have to turn out the lights to be in the dark.
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.
You can't know too much, but you can say too much.
Far better is it to know everything of a little than a little of everything.
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
Knowledge is power.
Sir Francis Bacon
An age is called Dark not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it.
Michener, James A.
Never by reflection, but only by doing is self-knowledge possible to one.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Some students drink at the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
Convinced myself, I seek not to convince.
Edgar Allan Poe
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.
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.
Man is not weak; knowledge is more than equivalent to force.
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.
I was born not knowing and have had only a little time to change that here and there.
Today knowledge has power. It controls access to opportunity and advancement.
Drucker, Peter F.
Many a man who has known himself at ten forgets himself utterly between ten and thirty.
Bowen, Catherine Drinker
People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge.
The less you know, the more you think you know, because you don't know you don't know.
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.
It is what we think we know already that often prevents us from learning.
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.
The desire of knowledge, like the thirst for riches, increases ever with the acquisition of it.
