Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
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.

2.
Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou knowest, all thou hast, nor all thou cans't.
Franklin, Benjamin

3.
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn't.
Brown, Francis Yeats

4.
You can't know too much, but you can say too much.
Coolidge, Calvin

5.
All knowledge is ambiguous.
Habgood, J. S.

6.
The degree of one's emotions varies inversely with one's knowledge of the facts- the less you know the hotter you get.
Russell, Bertrand

7.
If we value the pursuit of knowledge, we must be free to follow wherever that search may lead us. The free mind is not a barking dog, to be tethered on a ten-foot chain.
Adlai E. Stevenson Jr.

8.
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
Ball, Lucille

9.
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

10.
Become aware of internal, subjective, sub-verbal experiences, so that these experiences can be brought into the world of abstraction, of conversation, of naming, etc. with the consequence that it immediately becomes possible for a certain amount of control to be exerted over these hitherto unconscious and uncontrollable processes.
Maslow, Abraham H.

11.
Knowledge is the treasure, but judgment is the treasurer of the one who is wise.
Penn, William

12.
When you cease to strive to understand, then you will know without understanding.
Proverb, Chinese

13.
When a person acts without knowledge of what he thinks, feels, needs or wants, he does not yet have the option of choosing to act differently.
Moustakas, Clark

14.
Knowledge conquered by labor becomes a possession -- a property entirely our own.
Smiles, Samuel

15.
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

16.
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.
Jung, Carl

17.
Knowledge is ancient error reflecting on its youth.
Picabia, Francis

18.
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

19.
The desire of knowledge, like the thirst for riches, increases ever with the acquisition of it.
Sterne, Laurence

20.
A superficial knowledge is not enough. It must be a knowledge capable of analyzing a situation quickly and making an immediate decision.
Robert, Cavett

21.
Search not to find things too deeply hid; Nor try to know things whose knowledge is forbid.
Denham, Sir John

22.
Knowledge is the most democratic source of power.
Toffler, Alvin

23.
Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.
Fuller, Thomas

24.
Knowledge is the best eraser in the world for disharmony, distrust, despair, and the endless physical deficiencies of man.
Battista, Orlando A.

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

26.
Never by reflection, but only by doing is self-knowledge possible to one.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

27.
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.
Confucius

28.
Only divine love bestows the keys of knowledge.
Rimbaud, Arthur

29.
We don't know one-millionth of one percent about anything.
Edison, Thomas A.

30.
Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

31.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
Addison, Joseph

32.
Convinced myself, I seek not to convince.
Edgar Allan Poe

33.
To despise our own species is the price we must often pay for knowledge of it.
Colton, Charles Caleb

34.
Own more than thou showest, speak less than thou knowest.
Shakespeare, William

35.
Without wisdom, knowledge is either useless or destructive.

36.
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

37.
I would have the studies elective. Scholarship is to be created not by compulsion, but by awakening a pure interest in knowledge. The wise instructor accomplishes this by opening to his pupils precisely the attractions the study has for himself. The marking is a system for schools, not for the college; for boys, not for men; and it is an ungracious work to put on a professor.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

38.
When one is a stranger to oneself then one is estranged from others too.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow

39.
Knowledge is of two kinds: We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information about it.
Johnson, Samuel

40.
True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
Gracian, Baltasar

41.
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.
Canetti, Elias

42.
To succeed in business, to reach the top, an individual must know all it is possible to know about that business.
Getty, J. Paul

43.
I have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things, and I have succeeded fairly well.
Benchley, Robert

44.
They are so knowing, that they know nothing.
Terence

45.
I want, by understanding myself, to understand others. I want to be all that I am capable of becoming.
Mansfield, Katherine

46.
Men can acquire knowledge, but not wisdom. Some of the greatest fools ever known were learned men.
Proverb, Spanish

47.
Every animal knows more than you do.
Proverb, Native American

48.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
Manutius

49.
Far better is it to know everything of a little than a little of everything.
Pickering

50.
He who does not know one thing knows another
Proverb, Kenyan
