Best Quotes about Knowledge
Some people drink deeply from the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
Bright, Grant M.
It is nothing for one to know something unless another knows you know it.
It is part of our pedagogy to teach the operations of thinking, feeling, and willing so that they may be made conscious. For if we do not know the difference between an emotion and a thought, we will know very little. We need to understand the components (of emotions) at work... in order to free their hold.
Richards, Mary Caroline
He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.
Mill, John Stuart
Search not to find things too deeply hid; Nor try to know things whose knowledge is forbid.
Denham, Sir John
It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
We don't know one-millionth of one percent about anything.
Edison, Thomas A.
Own more than thou showest, speak less than thou knowest.
The trouble with most folks ain't so much their ignorance as knowing so many things that ain't so.
The mark of a well educated person is not necessarily in knowing all the answers, but in knowing where to find them.
You have to believe in God before you can say there are things that man was not meant to know. I don't think there's anything man wasn't meant to know. There are just some stupid things that people shouldn't do.
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.
Knowledge may give weight, but accomplishments give luster, and many more people see than weigh.
All knowledge is ambiguous.
Habgood, J. S.
Knowledge without practice is like a glass eye, all for show, and nothing for use.
No man knows less than the man who knows it all
Knowledge becomes wisdom only after it has been put to practical use.
Knowledge is proud that it knows so much; Wisdom is humble that it knows no more.
Charles V. said that a man who knew four languages was worth four men; and Alexander the Great so valued learning, that he used to say he was more indebted to Aristotle for giving him knowledge that, than his father Philip for giving him life.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
When one is a stranger to oneself then one is estranged from others too.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
Knowledge is only potential power.
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
Self knowers always dwell in El Dorado; they drink from the fountain of youth, and at all times owners of all they wish to enjoy.
Bristol, Claude M.
I know myself, but that is all.
Fitzgerald, F. Scott
Seldom if ever was knowledge given to keep, but always to impart. The grace of this rich jewel is lost in concealment.
Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.
You can't know too much, but you can say too much.
Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou knowest, all thou hast, nor all thou cans't.
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 have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things, and I have succeeded fairly well.
To know yourself you have only to set down a true statement of those that ever loved or hated you.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that ain't so.
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.
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.
True scholarship consists in knowing not what things exist, but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment.
Lowell, James Russell
To know yet to think that one does not know is best; Not to know yet to think that one knows will lead to difficulty.
As the biggest library if it is in disorder is not as useful as a small but well-arranged one, so you may accumulate a vast amount of knowledge but it will be of far less value to you than a much smaller amount if you have not thought it over for yourself.
Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Some students drink at the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
Know yourself, master yourself, conquest of self is most gratifying.
We are in fact convinced that if we are ever to have pure knowledge of anything, we must get rid of the body and contemplate things by themselves with the soul by itself. It seems, to judge from the argument, that the wisdom which we desire and upon which we profess to have set our hearts will be attainable only when we are dead and not in our lifetime.
I want, by understanding myself, to understand others. I want to be all that I am capable of becoming.
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.
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
Only divine love bestows the keys of knowledge.
Knowledge without education is but armed injustice.
Many a man who has known himself at ten forgets himself utterly between ten and thirty.
Bowen, Catherine Drinker
Oh how fine it is to know a thing or two!
One secures the gold of the spirit when he finds himself.
Bristol, Claude M.
