Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
The greater the knowledge, the greater the doubt.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

2.
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
Markham, Beryl

3.
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

4.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
Bible

5.
The knowledge of God is far from the love of Him.
Miller, Keith

6.
I know myself as a human entity; the scene, so to speak, or thoughts are affection; and am sensible of certain doubleness by which I can stand as remote from myself as from another. However intense my experience, I am conscious of the presence and criticism of a part of me, which, as it were, is no part of me, but spectator, sharing no experience, but taking note of it, and that is no more I than it is you.
Thoreau, Henry David

7.
Knowledge is of two kinds: We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information about it.
Johnson, Samuel

8.
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn't.
Brown, Francis Yeats

9.
No man can reveal to you nothing but that which already lies half-asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
Gibran, Kahlil

10.
And all your future lies beneath your hat.
Oldham, John

11.
Only as you do know yourself can your brain serve you as a sharp and efficient tool. Know your failings, passions, and prejudices so you can separate them from what you see. Know also when you actually have thought through to the nature of the thing with which you are dealing and when you are not thinking at all.
Baruch, Bernard M.

12.
Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information on it.
Samuel Johnson

13.
All knowledge is ambiguous.
Habgood, J. S.

14.
Some students drink at the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.

15.
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.
Eckhart, Meister

16.
It is not the quantity but the quality of knowledge which determines the mind's dignity.
Channing, William Ellery

17.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
Szasz, Thomas

18.
Be curious always! For knowledge will not acquire you: you must acquire it.
Back, Sudie

19.
One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.
Socrates

20.
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
Gibran, Kahlil

21.
There's a theory, one I find persuasive, that the quest for knowledge is, at bottom, the search for the answer to the question: Where was I before I was born. In the beginning was what? Perhaps, in the beginning, there was a curious room, a room like this one, crammed with wonders; and now the room and all it contains are forbidden you, although it was made just for you, had been prepared for you since time began, and you will spend all your life trying to remember it.
Carter, Angela

22.
There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
Morrison, Jim

23.
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
Ball, Lucille

24.
I wish I knew what I know now before.
Stewart, Rod

25.
It is, I fear, but a vain show of fulfilling the heathen precept, Know thyself, and too often leads to a self-estimate which will subsist in the absence of that fruit by which alone the quality of the tree is made evident.
Eliot, George

26.
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

27.
Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou knowest, all thou hast, nor all thou cans't.
Franklin, Benjamin

28.
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

29.
Only divine love bestows the keys of knowledge.
Rimbaud, Arthur

30.
To succeed in business, to reach the top, an individual must know all it is possible to know about that business.
Getty, J. Paul

31.
The desire of knowledge, like the thirst for riches, increases ever with the acquisition of it.
Sterne, Laurence

32.
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.
Confucius

33.
Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch.
Ball, Ivern

34.
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

35.
Never by reflection, but only by doing is self-knowledge possible to one.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

36.
The next best thing to knowing something is knowing where to find it.
Johnson, Samuel

37.
Knowledge and human power are synonymous.
Bacon, Francis

38.
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

39.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
Kempis, Thomas

40.
Every man gets a narrower and narrower field of knowledge in which he must be an expert in order to compete with other people. The specialist knows more and more about less and less and finally knows everything about nothing.
Lorenz, Konrad

41.
Today knowledge has power. It controls access to opportunity and advancement.
Drucker, Peter F.

42.
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

43.
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

44.
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
Bierce, Ambrose

45.
You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird... So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing -- that's what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.
Richard Feynman

46.
I was born not knowing and have had only a little time to change that here and there.
Richard Feynman

47.
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

48.
Knowledge is the treasure, but judgment is the treasurer of the one who is wise.
Penn, William

49.
Knowledge of the world in only to be acquired in the world, and not in a closet.
Chesterfield, Lord

50.
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self.
Franklin, Benjamin
