Best Quotes about Knowledge
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.
You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
The greater the knowledge, the greater the doubt.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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
He who knows little quickly tells it.
The knowledge of God is far from the love of Him.
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.
Nothing is too small to know, and nothing too big to attempt.
Van Horne, William
Man is not weak; knowledge is more than equivalent to force.
Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou knowest, all thou hast, nor all thou cans't.
There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
Better indeed is knowledge than mechanical practice. Better than knowledge is meditation. But better still is surrender of attachment to results, because there follows immediate peace.
It is better of course to know useless things than to know nothing.
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.
The desire of knowledge, like the thirst for riches, increases ever with the acquisition of it.
To know yourself you have only to set down a true statement of those that ever loved or hated you.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
'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.
Some people drink deeply from the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
Bright, Grant M.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles with it.
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.
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
His priority did not seem to be to teach them what he knew, but rather to impress upon them that nothing, not even... knowledge, was foolproof.
J. K. Rowling
He who seeks to approach his own buried past must conduct himself like a man digging. He must not be afraid to return again and again to the same matter; to scatter it as one scatters earth, to turn it over as one turns over soil. For the matter itself is only a deposit, a stratum, which yields only to the most meticulous examination what constitutes the real treasure hidden within the earth: the images, severed from all earlier associations, that stand --like precious fragments or torsos in a collector's gallery --in the prosaic rooms of our later understanding.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
There is a period of life when we swallow knowledge of ourselves and it becomes either good or sour inside.
Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.
A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
They are so knowing, that they know nothing.
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
During the last century, and part of the one before, it was widely held that there was an unreconcilable conflict between knowledge and belief.
We don't know one-millionth of one percent about anything.
Edison, Thomas A.
To know is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.
There is no knowledge, no light, no wisdom that you are in possession of, but what you have received it from some source.
The trouble with most folks ain't so much their ignorance as knowing so many things that ain't so.
Many a man who has known himself at ten forgets himself utterly between ten and thirty.
Bowen, Catherine Drinker
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''
The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.
Kennedy, John F.
Know thyself. Nothing in excess. The Self is required to balance the Self.
An age is called Dark not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it.
Michener, James A.
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn't.
Brown, Francis Yeats
A superficial knowledge is not enough. It must be a knowledge capable of analyzing a situation quickly and making an immediate decision.
I honestly believe it is better to know nothing than to know what ain't so.
We have no organ at all for knowledge, for truth: we know (or believe or imagine) precisely as much as may be useful in the interest of the human herd, the species: and even what is here called usefulness is in the end only a belief, something imagined and perhaps precisely that most fatal piece of stupidity by which we shall one day perish.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
Knowledge like timber shouldn't be mush use till they are seasoned.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
All knowledge is ambiguous.
Habgood, J. S.
