Knowledge

Self knowers always dwell in El Dorado; they drink from the fountain of youth, and at all times owners of all they wish to enjoy.
- Bristol, Claude M.
Knowledge Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
To know yourself you have only to set down a true statement of those that ever loved or hated you.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

2.
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.

3.
Knowledge and timber shouldn't be much used till they are seasoned.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

4.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles at it.
Margaret Fuller

5.
The mark of a well educated person is not necessarily in knowing all the answers, but in knowing where to find them.
Everett, Douglas

6.
All knowledge is ambiguous.
Habgood, J. S.

7.
Search not to find things too deeply hid; Nor try to know things whose knowledge is forbid.
Denham, Sir John

8.
To know yourself, see how others do, to know others look into your own heart.
Smiles, Sydney

9.
It is nothing for one to know something unless another knows you know it.
Proverb, Persian

10.
Man is not weak; knowledge is more than equivalent to force.
Johnson, Samuel

11.
He knows so little and knows it so fluently.
Glasgow, Ellen

12.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
Manutius

13.
To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge.
Benjamin Disraeli

14.
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

15.
He that knows himself, knows others; and he that is ignorant of himself, could not write a very profound lecture on other men's heads.
Colton, Charles Caleb

16.
Knowledge is only potential power.
Hill, Napoleon

17.
To succeed in business, to reach the top, an individual must know all it is possible to know about that business.
Getty, J. Paul

18.
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

19.
No man can reveal to you nothing but that which already lies half-asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
Gibran, Kahlil

20.
Know-how will surpass guess-how.

21.
They are so knowing, that they know nothing.
Terence

22.
Every animal knows more than you do.
Proverb, Native American

23.
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

24.
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

25.
Knowledge is power, if you know it about the right person
Mumford, Ethel Watts

26.
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

27.
You can always draw as well as you know how to. I flatter myself that I feel more than I express on canvas; but I know that is not so.
Hunt, William Morris

28.
You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
Traherne, Thomas

29.
The man who is too old to learn was probably always too old to learn.
Haskins, Caryl

30.
We are in fact convinced that if we are ever to have pure knowledge of anything, we must get rid of the body and contemplate things by themselves with the soul by itself. It seems, to judge from the argument, that the wisdom which we desire and upon which we profess to have set our hearts will be attainable only when we are dead and not in our lifetime.
Socrates

31.
Say oh wise man how you have come to such knowledge? Because I was never ashamed to confess my ignorance and ask others.
Herder, Johann Gottfried Von

32.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. [John 8:32]
Bible

33.
The next best thing to knowing something is knowing where to find it.
Johnson, Samuel

34.
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

35.
When one is a stranger to oneself then one is estranged from others too.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow

36.
'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

37.
Far better is it to know everything of a little than a little of everything.
Pickering

38.
We live on an island surrounded by a sea of ignorance. As our island of knowledge grows, so does the shore of our ignorance.
Wheeler, John Archibald

39.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
Addison, Joseph

40.
Who knows most believes least.
Proverb

41.
Knowledge like timber shouldn't be mush use till they are seasoned.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

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

47.
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

48.
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self.
Franklin, Benjamin

49.
Everything has been said yet few have taken advantage of it. Since all our knowledge is essentially banal, it can only be of value to minds that are not.
Vaneigem, Raoul

50.
We own almost all our knowledge not to those who have agreed but to those who have differed.
Colton, Charles Caleb
