Best Quotes about Knowledge
To grow wiser means to learn to know better and better the faults to which this instrument with which we feel and judge can be subject.
Lichtenberg, Georg C.
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.
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
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.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles at it.
'Tis not need we know our every thought or see the work shop where each mask is wrought wherefrom we view the world of box and pit, careless of wear, just so the mask shall fit and serve our jape's turn for a night or two.
Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou knowest, all thou hast, nor all thou cans't.
Knowledge and timber shouldn't be much used till they are seasoned.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
The knowledge of God is far from the love of Him.
The trouble with most folks ain't so much their ignorance as knowing so many things that ain't so.
Own more than thou showest, speak less than thou knowest.
Know, first, who you are, and then adorn yourself accordingly.
Each department of knowledge passes through three stages. The theoretic stage; the theological stage and the metaphysical or abstract stage.
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 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
We own almost all our knowledge not to those who have agreed but to those who have differed.
Colton, Charles Caleb
A man can only attain knowledge with the help of those who possess it. This must be understood from the very beginning. One must learn from him who knows.
In the advance of civilization, it is new knowledge which paves the way, and the pavement is eternal.
Whitney, W. R.
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn't.
Brown, Francis Yeats
Knowledge always demands increase; it is like fire, which must first be kindled by some external agent, but will afterwards always propagate itself.
Knowledge is ancient error reflecting on its youth.
There is no knowledge, no light, no wisdom that you are in possession of, but what you have received it from some source.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
If you want to know the taste of a pear, you must change the pear by eating it yourself. If you want to know the theory and methods of revolution, you must take part in revolution. All genuine knowledge originates in direct experience.
Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Sin, guilt, neurosis --they are one and the same, the fruit of the tree of knowledge.
To succeed in business, to reach the top, an individual must know all it is possible to know about that business.
Getty, J. Paul
A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.
The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.
Kennedy, John F.
Knowledge is in the end based on acknowledgement.
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
It is not good to know more unless we do more with what we already know.
Bergethon, R. K.
Knowledge without education is but armed injustice.
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.
I see men ordinarily more eager to discover a reason for things than to find out whether the things are so.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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.
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
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
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.
The most excellent and divine counsel, the best and most profitable advertisement of all others, but the least practiced, is to study and learn how to know ourselves. This is the foundation of wisdom and the highway to whatever is good. God, Nature, the wise, the world, preach man, exhort him both by word and deed to the study of himself.
And all your future lies beneath your hat.
Knowledge is the treasure, but judgment is the treasurer of the one who is wise.
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.
It seems to me that man is made to act rather than to know: the principles of things escape our most persevering researches.
Frederick The Great, (Frederick II)
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
It is what we think we know already that often prevents us from learning.
It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.
To know the right means of getting something done is virtually to have done it.
The greater the knowledge, the greater the doubt.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Knowledge is power, if you know it about the right person
Mumford, Ethel Watts
