Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
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

2.
Every animal knows more than you do.
Proverb, Native American

3.
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
Bierce, Ambrose

4.
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

5.
The end of learning is to know God, and out of that knowledge to love Him and imitate Him.
Milton, John

6.
None of us is as smart as all of us.
Eric Schmidt

7.
It is better of course to know useless things than to know nothing.
Stoppard, Tom

8.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles at it.
Margaret Fuller

9.
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.
Eckhart, Meister

10.
The greater the knowledge, the greater the doubt.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

11.
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn't.
Brown, Francis Yeats

12.
To know yourself you have only to set down a true statement of those that ever loved or hated you.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

13.
The knowledge of an unlearned man is living and luxuriant like a forest, but covered with mosses and lichens and for the most part inaccessible and going to waste; the knowledge of the man of science is like timber collected in yards for public works, which still supports a green sprout here and there, but even this is liable to dry rot.
Thoreau, Henry David

14.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
Manutius

15.
Knowledge without education is but armed injustice.
Horace

16.
'Tis not need we know our every thought or see the work shop where each mask is wrought wherefrom we view the world of box and pit, careless of wear, just so the mask shall fit and serve our jape's turn for a night or two.
Pound, Ezra

17.
I want, by understanding myself, to understand others. I want to be all that I am capable of becoming.
Mansfield, Katherine

18.
Man knows more than he understands.
Adler, Alfred

19.
Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou knowest, all thou hast, nor all thou cans't.
Franklin, Benjamin

20.
To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge.
Benjamin Disraeli

21.
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

22.
To know yourself, see how others do, to know others look into your own heart.
Smiles, Sydney

23.
Some students drink at the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.

24.
Nothing is too small to know, and nothing too big to attempt.
Van Horne, William

25.
Seldom if ever was knowledge given to keep, but always to impart. The grace of this rich jewel is lost in concealment.
Hall, Bishop

26.
It is, I fear, but a vain show of fulfilling the heathen precept, Know thyself, and too often leads to a self-estimate which will subsist in the absence of that fruit by which alone the quality of the tree is made evident.
Eliot, George

27.
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

28.
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
Bertrand Russell

29.
Knowledge fills a large brain; it merely inflates a small one.

30.
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

31.
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
Degas, Edgar

32.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
Szasz, Thomas

33.
Knowledge of the world in only to be acquired in the world, and not in a closet.
Chesterfield, Lord

34.
The trouble with most folks ain't so much their ignorance as knowing so many things that ain't so.
Billings, Josh

35.
Sin, guilt, neurosis --they are one and the same, the fruit of the tree of knowledge.
Miller, Henry

36.
Knowledge is the best eraser in the world for disharmony, distrust, despair, and the endless physical deficiencies of man.
Battista, Orlando A.

37.
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
Billings, Josh

38.
People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge.
Lao-tzu

39.
Oh how fine it is to know a thing or two!
Moliere

40.
When you cease to strive to understand, then you will know without understanding.
Proverb, Chinese

41.
If we value the pursuit of knowledge, we must be free to follow wherever that search may lead us. The free mind is not a barking dog, to be tethered on a ten-foot chain.
Adlai E. Stevenson Jr.

42.
Each department of knowledge passes through three stages. The theoretic stage; the theological stage and the metaphysical or abstract stage.
Comte, Auguste

43.
One-tenth of the folks run the world. One-tenth watch them run it, and the other eighty percent don't know what the hell's going on.
Simmons, Jake

44.
I know myself, but that is all.
Fitzgerald, F. Scott

45.
I wish I knew what I know now before.
Stewart, Rod

46.
When you see the abyss, and we have looked into it, then what? There isn't much room at the edge -- one person, another, not many. If you are there, others cannot be there. If you are there, you become a protective wall. What happens? You become part of t
Wiesel, Elie

47.
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

48.
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.
Confucius

49.
Knowledge is only potential power.
Hill, Napoleon

50.
Knowledge is power.
Sir Francis Bacon
