Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Far better is it to know everything of a little than a little of everything.
When one is a stranger to oneself then one is estranged from others too.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn't.
Brown, Francis Yeats

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

Thoreau, Henry David

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.

There is no knowledge, no light, no wisdom that you are in possession of, but what you have received it from some source.
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.
Know yourself, master yourself, conquest of self is most gratifying.
Say oh wise man how you have come to such knowledge? Because I was never ashamed to confess my ignorance and ask others.

La Fontaine, Jean De
Without knowledge, life is not more than the shadow of death.
Who knows most believes least.
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.
The knower and the known are one. Simple people imagine that they should see God as if he stood there and they here. This is not so. God and I, we are one in knowledge.

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Doyle, Sir Arthur Conan
