Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.
Mill, John Stuart

2.
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.

3.
Knowledge, without common sense, says Lee, is folly; without method, it is waste; without kindness, it is fanaticism; without religion, it is death. But with common sense, it is wisdom with method, it is power; with clarity, it is beneficence; with religion, it is virtue, and life, and peace.
Farrar, Austin

4.
Without knowledge, life is not more than the shadow of death.
Moliere

5.
It's a dangerous thing to think we know everything.
Kuehler, Jack

6.
It is not the quantity but the quality of knowledge which determines the mind's dignity.
Channing, William Ellery

7.
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.

8.
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

9.
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
Ball, Lucille

10.
One secures the gold of the spirit when he finds himself.
Bristol, Claude M.

11.
True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
Gracian, Baltasar

12.
Man knows more than he understands.
Adler, Alfred

13.
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
Bierce, Ambrose

14.
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

15.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
Szasz, Thomas

16.
As the biggest library if it is in disorder is not as useful as a small but well-arranged one, so you may accumulate a vast amount of knowledge but it will be of far less value to you than a much smaller amount if you have not thought it over for yourself.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

17.
The hunger and thirst for knowledge, the keen delight in the chase, the good humored willingness to admit that the scent was false, the eager desire to get on with the work, the cheerful resolution to go back and begin again, the broad good sense, the unaffected modesty, the imperturbable temper, the gratitude for any little help that was given -- all these will remain in my memory though I cannot paint them for others.
Maitland, Frederic William

18.
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
Degas, Edgar

19.
Only as you do know yourself can your brain serve you as a sharp and efficient tool. Know your failings, passions, and prejudices so you can separate them from what you see. Know also when you actually have thought through to the nature of the thing with which you are dealing and when you are not thinking at all.
Baruch, Bernard M.

20.
Some people drink deeply from the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
Bright, Grant M.

21.
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

22.
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.

23.
To know oneself, one should assert oneself. Psychology is action, not thinking about oneself. We continue to shape our personality all our life. If we knew ourselves perfectly, we should die.
Camus, Albert

24.
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.

25.
Each department of knowledge passes through three stages. The theoretic stage; the theological stage and the metaphysical or abstract stage.
Comte, Auguste

26.
The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one's own mind.
Bradley, Francis H.

27.
There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.
Socrates

28.
Oh how fine it is to know a thing or two!
Moliere

29.
Knowledge is ancient error reflecting on its youth.
Picabia, Francis

30.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles at it.
Margaret Fuller

31.
All men by nature desire knowledge.
Aristotle

32.
The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that ain't so.
Twain, Mark

33.
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.

34.
The next best thing to knowing something is knowing where to find it.
Johnson, Samuel

35.
Many of us don't have to turn out the lights to be in the dark.

36.
The greater the knowledge, the greater the doubt.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

37.
We have an opportunity for everyone in the world to have access to all the world's information. This has never before been possible. Why is ubiquitous information so profound? It's a tremendous equalizer. Information is power.
Eric Schmidt

38.
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

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

40.
Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.
Drucker, Peter F.

41.
I have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things, and I have succeeded fairly well.
Benchley, Robert

42.
Knowledge is the only elegance.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

43.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles with it.
Churchill, Winston

44.
There is, so I believe, in the essence of everything, something that we cannot call learning. There is, my friend, only a knowledge -- that is everywhere.
Hesse, Hermann

45.
It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.
Epictetus

46.
Far better is it to know everything of a little than a little of everything.
Pickering

47.
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

48.
The desire of knowledge, like the thirst for riches, increases ever with the acquisition of it.
Sterne, Laurence

49.
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

50.
Vague and mysterious forms of speech, and abuse of language, have so long passed for mysteries of science; and hard or misapplied words with little or no meaning have, by prescription, such a right to be mistaken for deep learning and height of speculation, that it will not be easy to persuade either those who speak or those who hear them, that they are but the covers of ignorance and hindrance of true knowledge.
Locke, John
