- Confucius

Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
A wise man, when asked how he had learned so much about everything, replied: By never being ashamed or afraid to ask questions about anything of which I was ignorant.

2.
Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.

3.
Far better is it to know everything of a little than a little of everything.
Pickering

4.
When one is a stranger to oneself then one is estranged from others too.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow

5.
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn't.
Brown, Francis Yeats

6.
To learn to get along without, to realize that what the world is going to demand of us may be a good deal more important than what we are entitled to demand of it -- this is a hard lesson.
Catton, Bruce

7.
Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
Samuel Johnson

8.
They are so knowing, that they know nothing.
Terence

9.
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

10.
You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
Traherne, Thomas

11.
Knowledge is the only elegance.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

12.
Know thyself? If I knew myself I would run away.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

13.
There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.
Socrates

Kempis, Thomas

15.
Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.
Fuller, Thomas

16.
There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
Morrison, Jim

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

19.
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.

20.
People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge.
Lao-tzu

21.
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

22.
Knowledge is only potential power.
Hill, Napoleon

23.
Every man gets a narrower and narrower field of knowledge in which he must be an expert in order to compete with other people. The specialist knows more and more about less and less and finally knows everything about nothing.
Lorenz, Konrad

24.
To despise our own species is the price we must often pay for knowledge of it.
Colton, Charles Caleb

25.
Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch.
Ball, Ivern

26.
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

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

28.
None of us is as smart as all of us.
Eric Schmidt

29.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
Bible

30.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
Manutius

31.
No matter what happens, there's always somebody who knew it would.
Starr, Lonny

32.
Knowledge conquered by labor becomes a possession -- a property entirely our own.
Smiles, Samuel

33.
It is not the quantity but the quality of knowledge which determines the mind's dignity.
Channing, William Ellery

34.
There is no knowledge, no light, no wisdom that you are in possession of, but what you have received it from some source.
Young, Brigham

35.
Knowledge is what we get when an observer, preferably a scientifically trained observer, provides us with a copy of reality that we can all recognize.
Lasch, Christopher

36.
Know yourself, master yourself, conquest of self is most gratifying.

37.
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

38.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles with it.
Churchill, Winston

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