Knowledge Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
Bible

2.
Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.
Drucker, Peter F.

3.
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
Bertrand Russell

4.
The long unmeasured pulse of time moves everything. There is nothing hidden that it cannot bring to light, nothing once known that may not become unknown.
Sophocles

5.
Knowledge is the only elegance.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

6.
Convinced myself, I seek not to convince.
Edgar Allan Poe

7.
Today knowledge has power. It controls access to opportunity and advancement.
Drucker, Peter F.

8.
Sin, guilt, neurosis --they are one and the same, the fruit of the tree of knowledge.
Miller, Henry

9.
Knowledge, like religion, must be experienced in order to be known.
Whipple, Edwin P.

10.
It is nothing for one to know something unless another knows you know it.
Proverb, Persian

11.
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn't.
Brown, Francis Yeats

12.
Once thoroughly our own knowledge ceases to give us pleasure.
Ruskin, John

13.
Knowledge is power. Rather, knowledge is happiness, because to have knowledge -- broad, deep knowledge -- is to know true ends from false, and lofty things from low. To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man's progress is to feel the great heartthrobs of humanity through the centuries; and if one does not feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life.
Keller, Helen

14.
The tree of knowledge is not the tree of life! And yet can we cast out of our spirits all the good or evil poured into them by so many learned generations? Ignorance cannot be learned.
Nerval, Gerard De

15.
Knowledge without practice is like a glass eye, all for show, and nothing for use.
Swinnock

16.
Knowledge is power, if you know it about the right person
Mumford, Ethel Watts

17.
Knowledge is what we get when an observer, preferably a scientifically trained observer, provides us with a copy of reality that we can all recognize.
Lasch, Christopher

18.
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.

19.
It is better of course to know useless things than to know nothing.
Stoppard, Tom

20.
The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.
Kennedy, John F.

21.
Knowledge is ancient error reflecting on its youth.
Picabia, Francis

22.
One secures the gold of the spirit when he finds himself.
Bristol, Claude M.

23.
Our treasure lies in the beehive of our knowledge. We are perpetually on the way thither, being by nature winged insects and honey gatherers of the mind.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

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

25.
One-tenth of the folks run the world. One-tenth watch them run it, and the other eighty percent don't know what the hell's going on.
Simmons, Jake

26.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
Szasz, Thomas

27.
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

28.
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

29.
To know yourself, see how others do, to know others look into your own heart.
Smiles, Sydney

30.
To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge.
Benjamin Disraeli

31.
A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don't know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox's or bear's, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there.
Eckhart, Meister

32.
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

33.
Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

34.
How do you know so much about everything? was asked of a very wise and intelligent man; and the answer was By never being afraid or ashamed to ask questions as to anything of which I was ignorant.
Abbott, John

35.
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
Markham, Beryl

36.
When you know a thing, to hold that you know it; and when you do not know a thing, to allow that you do not know it - this is knowledge.
Confucius

37.
Man is not weak; knowledge is more than equivalent to force.
Johnson, Samuel

38.
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.

39.
None of us is as smart as all of us.
Eric Schmidt

40.
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

41.
Know thyself? If I knew myself I would run away.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
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

43.
When you see the abyss, and we have looked into it, then what? There isn't much room at the edge -- one person, another, not many. If you are there, others cannot be there. If you are there, you become a protective wall. What happens? You become part of t
Wiesel, Elie

44.
Who knows most believes least.
Proverb

45.
Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.
Fuller, Thomas

46.
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

47.
It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.
Epictetus

48.
To know the right means of getting something done is virtually to have done it.
Caine, Mark

49.
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

50.
Many of us don't have to turn out the lights to be in the dark.
