Knowledge

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
Knowledge Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.
Mill, John Stuart

2.
Never by reflection, but only by doing is self-knowledge possible to one.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

3.
He who knows others is clever; He who knows himself has discernment.
Lao-Tzu

4.
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
Markham, Beryl

5.
Every animal knows more than you do.
Proverb, Native American

6.
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

7.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
Szasz, Thomas

8.
It is nothing for one to know something unless another knows you know it.
Proverb, Persian

9.
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.
Abbott, John

10.
Knowledge is the best eraser in the world for disharmony, distrust, despair, and the endless physical deficiencies of man.
Battista, Orlando A.

11.
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.
Lippmann, Walter

12.
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)

13.
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

14.
The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance.
Socrates

15.
The knowledge of God is far from the love of Him.
Miller, Keith

16.
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

17.
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
Billings, Josh

18.
Knowledge and timber shouldn't be much used till they are seasoned.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

19.
There is a period of life when we swallow knowledge of ourselves and it becomes either good or sour inside.
Bailey, Pearl

20.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles with it.
Churchill, Winston

21.
People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge.
Lao-tzu

22.
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

23.
There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
Morrison, Jim

24.
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.

25.
The mark of a well educated person is not necessarily in knowing all the answers, but in knowing where to find them.
Everett, Douglas

26.
Men can acquire knowledge, but not wisdom. Some of the greatest fools ever known were learned men.
Proverb, Spanish

27.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
Bible

28.
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.

29.
No man can reveal to you nothing but that which already lies half-asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
Gibran, Kahlil

30.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
Kempis, Thomas

31.
When you cease to strive to understand, then you will know without understanding.
Proverb, Chinese

32.
Knowledge is the most democratic source of power.
Toffler, Alvin

33.
One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.
Socrates

34.
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.
Cronenberg, David

35.
The man who is too old to learn was probably always too old to learn.
Haskins, Caryl

36.
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.
Eckhart, Meister

37.
All men by nature desire knowledge.
Aristotle

38.
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

39.
Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.
Einstein, Albert

40.
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.
Hill, Napoleon

I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
Ball, Lucille

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.
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.
Canetti, Elias

47.
There is no knowledge, no light, no wisdom that you are in possession of, but what you have received it from some source.
Young, Brigham

48.
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.
Carter, Angela

49.
Knowledge does not come to us in details, but in flashes of light from heaven.
Thoreau, Henry David

50.
A superficial knowledge is not enough. It must be a knowledge capable of analyzing a situation quickly and making an immediate decision.
Robert, Cavett
