Best Quotes about Knowledge
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
Know-how will surpass guess-how.
The greater the knowledge, the greater the doubt.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Knowledge is the best eraser in the world for disharmony, distrust, despair, and the endless physical deficiencies of man.
Battista, Orlando A.
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.
Knowledge is of two kinds: We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information about it.
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
Sin, guilt, neurosis --they are one and the same, the fruit of the tree of knowledge.
'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.
The self-explorer, whether he wants to or not, becomes the explorer of everything else. He learns to see himself, but suddenly, provided he was honest, all the rest appears, and it is as rich as he was, and, as a final crowning, richer.
It is not the quantity but the quality of knowledge which determines the mind's dignity.
Channing, William Ellery
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.
One secures the gold of the spirit when he finds himself.
Bristol, Claude M.
The mark of a well educated person is not necessarily in knowing all the answers, but in knowing where to find them.
Charles V. said that a man who knew four languages was worth four men; and Alexander the Great so valued learning, that he used to say he was more indebted to Aristotle for giving him knowledge that, than his father Philip for giving him life.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
The degree of one's emotions varies inversely with one's knowledge of the facts- the less you know the hotter you get.
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Better indeed is knowledge than mechanical practice. Better than knowledge is meditation. But better still is surrender of attachment to results, because there follows immediate peace.
The man who is too old to learn was probably always too old to learn.
Knowledge becomes wisdom only after it has been put to practical use.
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.
In the advance of civilization, it is new knowledge which paves the way, and the pavement is eternal.
Whitney, W. R.
A superficial knowledge is not enough. It must be a knowledge capable of analyzing a situation quickly and making an immediate decision.
Knowledge, humbles a great person, astonishes the common, and puffs up the small.
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.
To know yourself, see how others do, to know others look into your own heart.
Knowledge conquered by labor becomes a possession -- a property entirely our own.
I have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things, and I have succeeded fairly well.
A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.
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
True scholarship consists in knowing not what things exist, but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment.
Lowell, James Russell
It is not good to know more unless we do more with what we already know.
Bergethon, R. K.
You can always draw as well as you know how to. I flatter myself that I feel more than I express on canvas; but I know that is not so.
Hunt, William Morris
There is a period of life when we swallow knowledge of ourselves and it becomes either good or sour inside.
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.
Know thyself. Nothing in excess. The Self is required to balance the Self.
Know, first, who you are, and then adorn yourself accordingly.
I honestly believe it is better to know nothing than to know what ain't so.
It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.
There are three principal means of acquiring knowledge available to us: observation of nature, reflection, and experimentation. Observation collects facts; reflection combines them; experimentation verifies the result of that combination. Our observation of nature must be diligent, our reflection profound, and our experiments exact. We rarely see these three means combined; and for this reason, creative geniuses are not common.
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.
I wish I knew what I know now before.
To know oneself, one should assert oneself. Psychology is action, not thinking about oneself. We continue to shape our personality all our life. If we knew ourselves perfectly, we should die.
One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.
Knowledge always demands increase; it is like fire, which must first be kindled by some external agent, but will afterwards always propagate itself.
Without knowledge, life is not more than the shadow of death.
If people can be educated to see the lowly side of their own natures, it may be hoped that they will also learn to understand and to love their fellow men better. A little less hypocrisy and a little more tolerance towards oneself can only have good results in respect for our neighbor; for we are all too prone to transfer to our fellows the injustice and violence we inflict upon our own natures.
To know yet to think that one does not know is best; Not to know yet to think that one knows will lead to difficulty.
We live on an island surrounded by a sea of ignorance. As our island of knowledge grows, so does the shore of our ignorance.
Wheeler, John Archibald
