Best Quotes about 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
Man is not weak; knowledge is more than equivalent to force.
There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.
It's a dangerous thing to think we know everything.
Knowledge is proud that it knows so much; Wisdom is humble that it knows no more.
Today knowledge has power. It controls access to opportunity and advancement.
Drucker, Peter F.
None of us is as smart as all of us.
Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.
Knowledge does not come to us in details, but in flashes of light from heaven.
Thoreau, Henry David
The tree of knowledge is not the tree of life! And yet can we cast out of our spirits all the good or evil poured into them by so many learned generations? Ignorance cannot be learned.
Nerval, Gerard De
To grow wiser means to learn to know better and better the faults to which this instrument with which we feel and judge can be subject.
Lichtenberg, Georg C.
The trouble with most folks ain't so much their ignorance as knowing so many things that ain't so.
The long unmeasured pulse of time moves everything. There is nothing hidden that it cannot bring to light, nothing once known that may not become unknown.
Know, first, who you are, and then adorn yourself accordingly.
Every animal knows more than you do.
Proverb, Native American
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.
Some people drink deeply from the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
Bright, Grant M.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
We forge gradually our greatest instrument for understanding the world -- introspection. We discover that humanity may resemble us very considerably -- that the best way of knowing the inwardness of our neighbors is to know ourselves.
True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
Know-how will surpass guess-how.
Knowledge is knowing that we cannot know.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Vague and mysterious forms of speech, and abuse of language, have so long passed for mysteries of science; and hard or misapplied words with little or no meaning have, by prescription, such a right to be mistaken for deep learning and height of speculation, that it will not be easy to persuade either those who speak or those who hear them, that they are but the covers of ignorance and hindrance of true knowledge.
Knowledge is only potential power.
Knowledge is and will be produced in order to be sold, it is and will be consumed in order to be valorized in a new production: in both cases, the goal is exchange. Knowledge ceases to be an end in itself, it loses its use-value.
Lyotard, Jean Francois
The next best thing to knowing something is knowing where to find it.
The knowledge of God is far from the love of Him.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
Boys, I may not know much, but I know chicken shit from chicken salad.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
His priority did not seem to be to teach them what he knew, but rather to impress upon them that nothing, not even... knowledge, was foolproof.
J. K. Rowling
Knowledge must come through action; you can have no test which is not fanciful, save by trial.
Convinced myself, I seek not to convince.
Edgar Allan Poe
A superficial knowledge is not enough. It must be a knowledge capable of analyzing a situation quickly and making an immediate decision.
Knowledge is ancient error reflecting on its youth.
To know the right means of getting something done is virtually to have done it.
To know yourself, see how others do, to know others look into your own heart.
It not knowing what to do, it's doing what you know.
The desire of knowledge, like the thirst for riches, increases ever with the acquisition of it.
The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.
Kennedy, John F.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.
Drucker, Peter F.
Oh how fine it is to know a thing or two!
Man is distinguished, not only by his reason; but also by this singular passion from other animals... which is a lust of the mind, that by a perseverance of delight in the continual and indefatigable generation of knowledge, exceeds the short vehemence of any carnal pleasure.
How do you know so much about everything? was asked of a very wise and intelligent man; and the answer was By never being afraid or ashamed to ask questions as to anything of which I was ignorant.
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.
Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned.
I would have the studies elective. Scholarship is to be created not by compulsion, but by awakening a pure interest in knowledge. The wise instructor accomplishes this by opening to his pupils precisely the attractions the study has for himself. The marking is a system for schools, not for the college; for boys, not for men; and it is an ungracious work to put on a professor.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Without knowledge, life is not more than the shadow of death.
He who knows little quickly tells it.
You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
