Knowledge

Depend upon it there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.
- Doyle, Sir Arthur Conan
Knowledge Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
Szasz, Thomas

2.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
Manutius

3.
They are so knowing, that they know nothing.
Terence

4.
The mark of a well educated person is not necessarily in knowing all the answers, but in knowing where to find them.
Everett, Douglas

5.
Some students drink at the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.

6.
You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
Traherne, Thomas

7.
The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one's own mind.
Bradley, Francis H.

8.
Knowledge, like religion, must be experienced in order to be known.
Whipple, Edwin P.

9.
Know thyself. A maxim as pernicious as it is ugly. Whoever studies himself arrest his own development. A caterpillar who seeks to know himself would never become a butterfly.
Gide, Andre

10.
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self.
Franklin, Benjamin

11.
Of a truth, Knowledge is power, but it is a power reined by scruple, having a conscience of what must be and what may be; whereas Ignorance is a blind giant who, let him but wax unbound, would make it a sport to seize the pillars that hold up the long-wrought fabric of human good, and turn all the places of joy as dark as a buried Babylon.
Eliot, George

12.
He knows so little and knows it so fluently.
Glasgow, Ellen

13.
Every animal knows more than you do.
Proverb, Native American

14.
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''

15.
A knowledge of men is the prime secret of business success.
Mills, Darius Ogden

16.
The man who is too old to learn was probably always too old to learn.
Haskins, Caryl

17.
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.

18.
It is what we think we know already that often prevents us from learning.
Bernard, Claude

19.
Knowledge is the treasure, but judgment is the treasurer of the one who is wise.
Penn, William

20.
To succeed in business, to reach the top, an individual must know all it is possible to know about that business.
Getty, J. Paul

21.
Knowledge fills a large brain; it merely inflates a small one.

22.
Knowledge is knowing that we cannot know.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

23.
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

24.
A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.
Castaneda, Carlos

25.
I was born not knowing and have had only a little time to change that here and there.
Richard Feynman

26.
One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.
Socrates

27.
Knowledge and human power are synonymous.
Bacon, Francis

28.
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.
Vaneigem, Raoul

29.
Knowledge without education is but armed injustice.
Horace

30.
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
Markham, Beryl

31.
We have no organ at all for knowledge, for truth: we know (or believe or imagine) precisely as much as may be useful in the interest of the human herd, the species: and even what is here called usefulness is in the end only a belief, something imagined and perhaps precisely that most fatal piece of stupidity by which we shall one day perish.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

32.
Knowledge is power. Rather, knowledge is happiness, because to have knowledge -- broad, deep knowledge -- is to know true ends from false, and lofty things from low. To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man's progress is to feel the great heartthrobs of humanity through the centuries; and if one does not feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life.
Keller, Helen

33.
It is part of our pedagogy to teach the operations of thinking, feeling, and willing so that they may be made conscious. For if we do not know the difference between an emotion and a thought, we will know very little. We need to understand the components (of emotions) at work... in order to free their hold.
Richards, Mary Caroline

34.
The most excellent and divine counsel, the best and most profitable advertisement of all others, but the least practiced, is to study and learn how to know ourselves. This is the foundation of wisdom and the highway to whatever is good. God, Nature, the wise, the world, preach man, exhort him both by word and deed to the study of himself.
Charron, Pierre

35.
Try to put well in practice what you already know. In so doing, you will, in good time, discover the hidden things you now inquire about.
Rembrandt (Harmenszoon van Rijn)

36.
If you want to know the taste of a pear, you must change the pear by eating it yourself. If you want to know the theory and methods of revolution, you must take part in revolution. All genuine knowledge originates in direct experience.
Zedong, Mao

37.
Knowledge conquered by labor becomes a possession -- a property entirely our own.
Smiles, Samuel

38.
No matter what happens, there's always somebody who knew it would.
Starr, Lonny

39.
I want, by understanding myself, to understand others. I want to be all that I am capable of becoming.
Mansfield, Katherine

40.
Knowledge, humbles a great person, astonishes the common, and puffs up the small.
Saying

41.
Know thyself? If I knew myself I would run away.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.
Drucker, Peter F.

43.
Knowledge does not come to us in details, but in flashes of light from heaven.
Thoreau, Henry David

44.
Knowledge becomes wisdom only after it has been put to practical use.

45.
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

46.
Inside myself is a place where I live all alone and that is where I renew my springs that never dry up.
Buck, Pearl S.

47.
Knowledge is ancient error reflecting on its youth.
Picabia, Francis

48.
Knowledge is the most democratic source of power.
Toffler, Alvin

49.
He who seeks to approach his own buried past must conduct himself like a man digging. He must not be afraid to return again and again to the same matter; to scatter it as one scatters earth, to turn it over as one turns over soil. For the matter itself is only a deposit, a stratum, which yields only to the most meticulous examination what constitutes the real treasure hidden within the earth: the images, severed from all earlier associations, that stand --like precious fragments or torsos in a collector's gallery --in the prosaic rooms of our later understanding.
Benjamin, Walter

50.
The trouble with most folks ain't so much their ignorance as knowing so many things that ain't so.
Billings, Josh
