Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
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

2.
We own almost all our knowledge not to those who have agreed but to those who have differed.
Colton, Charles Caleb

3.
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.

4.
Knowledge does not come to us in details, but in flashes of light from heaven.
Thoreau, Henry David

Many people think of knowledge as money, They would like knowledge, but do not want to face the perseverance and self-denial that goes into the acquisition of it.
Morely, John

6.
I want, by understanding myself, to understand others. I want to be all that I am capable of becoming.
Mansfield, Katherine

7.
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

8.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
Addison, Joseph

Bertrand Russell

Those who think they know it all are very annoying to those of us who do.
Mueller, Robert K.

Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification.
Fischer, Martin H.

People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge.
Lao-tzu

14.
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

15.
I wish I knew what I know now before.
Stewart, Rod

16.
I find that a great part of the information I have, was acquired by looking up something and finding something else on the way.
Adams, Franklin P.

17.
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
Gibran, Kahlil

18.
Knowledge is the best eraser in the world for disharmony, distrust, despair, and the endless physical deficiencies of man.
Battista, Orlando A.

19.
Knowledge is proud that it knows so much; Wisdom is humble that it knows no more.
Cowper, William

20.
When you cease to strive to understand, then you will know without understanding.
Proverb, Chinese

21.
Once thoroughly our own knowledge ceases to give us pleasure.
Ruskin, John

22.
Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.

Lippmann, Walter

No matter what happens, there's always somebody who knew it would.
Starr, Lonny

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

26.
Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

27.
Far better is it to know everything of a little than a little of everything.
Pickering

Knowledge is the only elegance.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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''

34.
He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.
Mill, John Stuart
