Knowledge

If we value the pursuit of knowledge, we must be free to follow wherever that search may lead us. The free mind is not a barking dog, to be tethered on a ten-foot chain.
- Adlai E. Stevenson Jr.
Knowledge Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
Knowledge is in the end based on acknowledgement.
Wittgenstein, Ludwig

2.
Knowledge without education is but armed injustice.
Horace

3.
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
Bierce, Ambrose

4.
The conqueror and king in each one of us is the knower of truth. Let the knower awaken in us and drive the horses of the mind, emotions, and physical body on the pathway which that king has chosen.
Arundale, George S.

5.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
Manutius

6.
Know thyself. A maxim as pernicious as it is ugly. Whoever studies himself arrest his own development. A caterpillar who seeks to know himself would never become a butterfly.
Gide, Andre

7.
It is what we think we know already that often prevents us from learning.
Bernard, Claude

8.
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

9.
Know yourself, master yourself, conquest of self is most gratifying.

10.
We can only learn to know ourselves and do what we can -- namely, surrender our will and fulfill God's will in us.
Teresa of Avila, St.

11.
The knowledge of God is far from the love of Him.
Miller, Keith

12.
He knows so little and knows it so fluently.
Glasgow, Ellen

13.
One secures the gold of the spirit when he finds himself.
Bristol, Claude M.

14.
Become aware of internal, subjective, sub-verbal experiences, so that these experiences can be brought into the world of abstraction, of conversation, of naming, etc. with the consequence that it immediately becomes possible for a certain amount of control to be exerted over these hitherto unconscious and uncontrollable processes.
Maslow, Abraham H.

15.
Only a fool knows everything. A wise man knows how little he knows.

16.
Knowledge is what we get when an observer, preferably a scientifically trained observer, provides us with a copy of reality that we can all recognize.
Lasch, Christopher

17.
There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.
Socrates

18.
Knowledge is power, if you know it about the right person
Mumford, Ethel Watts

19.
Knowledge and timber shouldn't be much used till they are seasoned.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

20.
Knowledge is power.
Sir Francis Bacon

21.
A knowledge of men is the prime secret of business success.
Mills, Darius Ogden

22.
God grant that not only the love of liberty but a thorough knowledge of the rights of man may pervade all the nations of the earth, so that a philosopher may set his foot anywhere on its surface and say: This is my country!
Franklin, Benjamin

23.
The desire of knowledge, like the thirst for riches, increases ever with the acquisition of it.
Sterne, Laurence

24.
Inside myself is a place where I live all alone and that is where I renew my springs that never dry up.
Buck, Pearl S.

25.
The degree of one's emotions varies inversely with one's knowledge of the facts- the less you know the hotter you get.
Russell, Bertrand

26.
Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.

27.
Know thyself? If I knew myself I would run away.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

28.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
Addison, Joseph

29.
Knowledge may give weight, but accomplishments give luster, and many more people see than weigh.
Chesterfield, Lord

30.
If people can be educated to see the lowly side of their own natures, it may be hoped that they will also learn to understand and to love their fellow men better. A little less hypocrisy and a little more tolerance towards oneself can only have good results in respect for our neighbor; for we are all too prone to transfer to our fellows the injustice and violence we inflict upon our own natures.
Jung, Carl

31.
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
Bertrand Russell

32.
The self-explorer, whether he wants to or not, becomes the explorer of everything else. He learns to see himself, but suddenly, provided he was honest, all the rest appears, and it is as rich as he was, and, as a final crowning, richer.
Canetti, Elias

33.
Convinced myself, I seek not to convince.
Edgar Allan Poe

34.
When you cease to strive to understand, then you will know without understanding.
Proverb, Chinese

35.
To know yourself you have only to set down a true statement of those that ever loved or hated you.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

36.
True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
Gracian, Baltasar

37.
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
Markham, Beryl

38.
Each department of knowledge passes through three stages. The theoretic stage; the theological stage and the metaphysical or abstract stage.
Comte, Auguste

39.
Man is not weak; knowledge is more than equivalent to force.
Johnson, Samuel

40.
Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch.
Ball, Ivern

41.
Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
In the advance of civilization, it is new knowledge which paves the way, and the pavement is eternal.
Whitney, W. R.

43.
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
Degas, Edgar

44.
People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge.
Lao-tzu

45.
Many people think of knowledge as money, They would like knowledge, but do not want to face the perseverance and self-denial that goes into the acquisition of it.
Morely, John

46.
There is a period of life when we swallow knowledge of ourselves and it becomes either good or sour inside.
Bailey, Pearl

47.
There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
Morrison, Jim

48.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
Kempis, Thomas

49.
Knowledge is the only elegance.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

50.
Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
