Best Quotes about Knowledge
He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.
Mill, John Stuart
Never by reflection, but only by doing is self-knowledge possible to one.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
He who knows others is clever; He who knows himself has discernment.
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
Every animal knows more than you do.
Proverb, Native American
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.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
It is nothing for one to know something unless another knows you know it.
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.
Knowledge is the best eraser in the world for disharmony, distrust, despair, and the endless physical deficiencies of man.
Battista, Orlando A.
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.
It seems to me that man is made to act rather than to know: the principles of things escape our most persevering researches.
Frederick The Great, (Frederick II)
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.
The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance.
The knowledge of God is far from the love of Him.
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.
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
Knowledge and timber shouldn't be much used till they are seasoned.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
There is a period of life when we swallow knowledge of ourselves and it becomes either good or sour inside.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles with it.
People are difficult to govern because they have too much 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
There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
Become aware of internal, subjective, sub-verbal experiences, so that these experiences can be brought into the world of abstraction, of conversation, of naming, etc. with the consequence that it immediately becomes possible for a certain amount of control to be exerted over these hitherto unconscious and uncontrollable processes.
Maslow, Abraham H.
The mark of a well educated person is not necessarily in knowing all the answers, but in knowing where to find them.
Men can acquire knowledge, but not wisdom. Some of the greatest fools ever known were learned men.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
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.
No man can reveal to you nothing but that which already lies half-asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
When you cease to strive to understand, then you will know without understanding.
Knowledge is the most democratic source of power.
One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.
You have to believe in God before you can say there are things that man was not meant to know. I don't think there's anything man wasn't meant to know. There are just some stupid things that people shouldn't do.
The man who is too old to learn was probably always too old to learn.
A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don't know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox's or bear's, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there.
All men by nature desire knowledge.
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
Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.
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 is only potential power.
When one is a stranger to oneself then one is estranged from others too.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
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
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.
There is no knowledge, no light, no wisdom that you are in possession of, but what you have received it from some source.
There's a theory, one I find persuasive, that the quest for knowledge is, at bottom, the search for the answer to the question: Where was I before I was born. In the beginning was what? Perhaps, in the beginning, there was a curious room, a room like this one, crammed with wonders; and now the room and all it contains are forbidden you, although it was made just for you, had been prepared for you since time began, and you will spend all your life trying to remember it.
Knowledge does not come to us in details, but in flashes of light from heaven.
Thoreau, Henry David
A superficial knowledge is not enough. It must be a knowledge capable of analyzing a situation quickly and making an immediate decision.
