Knowledge

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



Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.
Socrates

2.
Man is not weak; knowledge is more than equivalent to force.
Johnson, Samuel

3.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
Addison, Joseph

4.
Depend upon it there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.
Doyle, Sir Arthur Conan

5.
Once thoroughly our own knowledge ceases to give us pleasure.
Ruskin, John

6.
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

7.
Vague and mysterious forms of speech, and abuse of language, have so long passed for mysteries of science; and hard or misapplied words with little or no meaning have, by prescription, such a right to be mistaken for deep learning and height of speculation, that it will not be easy to persuade either those who speak or those who hear them, that they are but the covers of ignorance and hindrance of true knowledge.
Locke, John

8.
I was born not knowing and have had only a little time to change that here and there.
Richard Feynman

9.
Knowledge like timber shouldn't be mush use till they are seasoned.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

10.
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.

11.
Knowledge of ourselves teaches us whence we come, where we are and whither we are going. We come from God and we are in exile; and it is because our potency of affection lends towards God that we are aware of this state of exile.
Ruysbroeck, Jan Van

12.
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

13.
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

14.
Knowledge without education is but armed injustice.
Horace

15.
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn't.
Brown, Francis Yeats

16.
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.
Cronenberg, David

17.
Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

18.
What's scary in life is not what people know (or don't know), but what they know that ain't so.
Paige, Leroy ''Satchel''

19.
I wish I knew what I know now before.
Stewart, Rod

20.
You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
Traherne, Thomas

21.
There is no knowledge, no light, no wisdom that you are in possession of, but what you have received it from some source.
Young, Brigham

22.
Knowledge is power.
Sir Francis Bacon

23.
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.
Confucius

24.
It's a dangerous thing to think we know everything.
Kuehler, Jack

25.
Knowledge is the only elegance.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

26.
Far better is it to know everything of a little than a little of everything.
Pickering

27.
Know yourself, master yourself, conquest of self is most gratifying.

28.
Man is distinguished, not only by his reason; but also by this singular passion from other animals... which is a lust of the mind, that by a perseverance of delight in the continual and indefatigable generation of knowledge, exceeds the short vehemence of any carnal pleasure.
Hobbes, Thomas

29.
The next best thing to knowing something is knowing where to find it.
Johnson, Samuel

30.
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.
Lao-Tzu

31.
Sin, guilt, neurosis --they are one and the same, the fruit of the tree of knowledge.
Miller, Henry

32.
He knows the universe and does not know himself.
La Fontaine, Jean De

33.
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.

34.
The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.
Kennedy, John F.

35.
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

36.
A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.
Castaneda, Carlos

37.
I have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things, and I have succeeded fairly well.
Benchley, Robert

38.
The greater the knowledge, the greater the doubt.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

39.
There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
Morrison, Jim

40.
During the last century, and part of the one before, it was widely held that there was an unreconcilable conflict between knowledge and belief.
Einstein, Albert

41.
The hunger and thirst for knowledge, the keen delight in the chase, the good humored willingness to admit that the scent was false, the eager desire to get on with the work, the cheerful resolution to go back and begin again, the broad good sense, the unaffected modesty, the imperturbable temper, the gratitude for any little help that was given -- all these will remain in my memory though I cannot paint them for others.
Maitland, Frederic William

42.
Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

43.
There is, so I believe, in the essence of everything, something that we cannot call learning. There is, my friend, only a knowledge -- that is everywhere.
Hesse, Hermann

44.
Oh how fine it is to know a thing or two!
Moliere

45.
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

46.
No man knows less than the man who knows it all

47.
Knowledge is and will be produced in order to be sold, it is and will be consumed in order to be valorized in a new production: in both cases, the goal is exchange. Knowledge ceases to be an end in itself, it loses its use-value.
Lyotard, Jean Francois

48.
Knowledge without practice is like a glass eye, all for show, and nothing for use.
Swinnock

49.
Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.
Einstein, Albert

50.
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
