Best Quotes about Knowledge
Knowledge is in the end based on acknowledgement.
Knowledge without education is but armed injustice.
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
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.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
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.
It is what we think we know already that often prevents us from learning.
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
Know yourself, master yourself, conquest of self is most gratifying.
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.
The knowledge of God is far from the love of Him.
He knows so little and knows it so fluently.
One secures the gold of the spirit when he finds himself.
Bristol, Claude M.
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.
Only a fool knows everything. A wise man knows how little he knows.
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.
There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.
Knowledge is power, if you know it about the right person
Mumford, Ethel Watts
Knowledge and timber shouldn't be much used till they are seasoned.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
Knowledge is power.
Sir Francis Bacon
A knowledge of men is the prime secret of business success.
Mills, Darius Ogden
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!
The desire of knowledge, like the thirst for riches, increases ever with the acquisition of it.
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.
The degree of one's emotions varies inversely with one's knowledge of the facts- the less you know the hotter you get.
Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Know thyself? If I knew myself I would run away.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
Knowledge may give weight, but accomplishments give luster, and many more people see than weigh.
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.
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
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.
Convinced myself, I seek not to convince.
Edgar Allan Poe
When you cease to strive to understand, then you will know without understanding.
To know yourself you have only to set down a true statement of those that ever loved or hated you.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
Each department of knowledge passes through three stages. The theoretic stage; the theological stage and the metaphysical or abstract stage.
Man is not weak; knowledge is more than equivalent to force.
Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch.
Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
In the advance of civilization, it is new knowledge which paves the way, and the pavement is eternal.
Whitney, W. R.
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge.
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.
There is a period of life when we swallow knowledge of ourselves and it becomes either good or sour inside.
There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
Knowledge is the only elegance.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
