Knowledge

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.
- Bhagavad Gita
Knowledge Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
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.

2.
You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
Traherne, Thomas

3.
The greater the knowledge, the greater the doubt.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

4.
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

5.
He who knows little quickly tells it.
Proverb, Italian

6.
The knowledge of God is far from the love of Him.
Miller, Keith

7.
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

8.
Nothing is too small to know, and nothing too big to attempt.
Van Horne, William

9.
Man is not weak; knowledge is more than equivalent to force.
Johnson, Samuel

10.
Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou knowest, all thou hast, nor all thou cans't.
Franklin, Benjamin

11.
There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
Morrison, Jim

12.
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.
Bhagavad Gita

13.
It is better of course to know useless things than to know nothing.
Stoppard, Tom

14.
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.
Charron, Pierre

15.
The desire of knowledge, like the thirst for riches, increases ever with the acquisition of it.
Sterne, Laurence

16.
To know yourself you have only to set down a true statement of those that ever loved or hated you.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

17.
'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.
Pound, Ezra

18.
Some people drink deeply from the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
Bright, Grant M.

19.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles with it.
Churchill, Winston

20.
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

21.
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
Degas, Edgar

22.
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

23.
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.
Benjamin, Walter

24.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
Manutius

25.
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
Bierce, Ambrose

26.
There is a period of life when we swallow knowledge of ourselves and it becomes either good or sour inside.
Bailey, Pearl

27.
Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.

28.
A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.
Castaneda, Carlos

29.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
Bible

30.
They are so knowing, that they know nothing.
Terence

31.
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
Bertrand Russell

32.
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

33.
We don't know one-millionth of one percent about anything.
Edison, Thomas A.

34.
To know is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.
Confucius

35.
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

36.
The trouble with most folks ain't so much their ignorance as knowing so many things that ain't so.
Billings, Josh

37.
Many a man who has known himself at ten forgets himself utterly between ten and thirty.
Bowen, Catherine Drinker

38.
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''

39.
The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.
Kennedy, John F.

40.
Know thyself. Nothing in excess. The Self is required to balance the Self.
Ralph, Blum

41.
An age is called Dark not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it.
Michener, James A.

42.
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn't.
Brown, Francis Yeats

43.
A superficial knowledge is not enough. It must be a knowledge capable of analyzing a situation quickly and making an immediate decision.
Robert, Cavett

44.
I honestly believe it is better to know nothing than to know what ain't so.
Billings, Josh

45.
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.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

46.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
Kempis, Thomas

47.
Knowledge like timber shouldn't be mush use till they are seasoned.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

48.
All knowledge is ambiguous.
Habgood, J. S.

49.
Knowledge is the most democratic source of power.
Toffler, Alvin

50.
Knowledge is ancient error reflecting on its youth.
Picabia, Francis
