Best Quotes about Knowledge
Knowledge and timber shouldn't be much used till they are seasoned.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
He that knows himself, knows others; and he that is ignorant of himself, could not write a very profound lecture on other men's heads.
Colton, Charles Caleb
We own almost all our knowledge not to those who have agreed but to those who have differed.
Colton, Charles Caleb
The next best thing to knowing something is knowing where to find it.
There is, so I believe, in the essence of everything, something that we cannot call learning. There is, my friend, only a knowledge -- that is everywhere.
Knowledge does not come to us in details, but in flashes of light from heaven.
Thoreau, Henry David
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
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.
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.
None of us is as smart as all of us.
Knowledge is the most democratic source of power.
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
Without knowledge, life is not more than the shadow of death.
He who knows others is clever; He who knows himself has discernment.
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.
Only divine love bestows the keys of knowledge.
No man can reveal to you nothing but that which already lies half-asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
Knowledge is not a passion from without the mind, but an active exertion of the inward strength, vigor and power of the mind, displaying itself from within.
Cudworth, Ralph J.
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.
Sin, guilt, neurosis --they are one and the same, the fruit of the tree of knowledge.
It's a dangerous thing to think we know everything.
True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
Some students drink at the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
The less you know, the more you think you know, because you don't know you don't know.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
We don't know one-millionth of one percent about anything.
Edison, Thomas A.
It is not the quantity but the quality of knowledge which determines the mind's dignity.
Channing, William Ellery
A man can only attain knowledge with the help of those who possess it. This must be understood from the very beginning. One must learn from him who knows.
Knowledge is knowing that we cannot know.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
He who does not know one thing knows another
You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
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 which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.
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
No matter what happens, there's always somebody who knew it would.
We have no organ at all for knowledge, for truth: we know (or believe or imagine) precisely as much as may be useful in the interest of the human herd, the species: and even what is here called usefulness is in the end only a belief, something imagined and perhaps precisely that most fatal piece of stupidity by which we shall one day perish.
He who knows little quickly tells it.
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge.
To know yourself, see how others do, to know others look into your own heart.
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.
Far better is it to know everything of a little than a little of everything.
I honestly believe it is better to know nothing than to know what ain't so.
If you want to know the taste of a pear, you must change the pear by eating it yourself. If you want to know the theory and methods of revolution, you must take part in revolution. All genuine knowledge originates in direct experience.
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.
Who knows most believes least.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
