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
Knowledge is knowing that we cannot know.

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.
And all your future lies beneath your hat.
It is nothing for one to know something unless another knows you know it.
He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.
Mill, John Stuart
There is no knowledge, no light, no wisdom that you are in possession of, but what you have received it from some source.
It is not the quantity but the quality of knowledge which determines the mind's dignity.
Channing, William Ellery
Knowledge, humbles a great person, astonishes the common, and puffs up the small.

Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
Knowledge becomes evil if the aim be not virtuous.
Once thoroughly our own knowledge ceases to give us pleasure.
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.
