Knowledge Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
Knowledge and timber shouldn't be much used till they are seasoned.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

2.
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

3.
We own almost all our knowledge not to those who have agreed but to those who have differed.
Colton, Charles Caleb

4.
The next best thing to knowing something is knowing where to find it.
Johnson, Samuel

5.
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.
Hesse, Hermann

6.
Knowledge does not come to us in details, but in flashes of light from heaven.
Thoreau, Henry David

7.
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

8.
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.
Samuel Johnson

9.
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.
Confucius

10.
None of us is as smart as all of us.
Eric Schmidt

11.
Knowledge is the most democratic source of power.
Toffler, Alvin

12.
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
Gibran, Kahlil

13.
Without knowledge, life is not more than the shadow of death.
Moliere

14.
He who knows others is clever; He who knows himself has discernment.
Lao-Tzu

15.
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.
Lorenz, Konrad

16.
Only divine love bestows the keys of knowledge.
Rimbaud, Arthur

17.
No man can reveal to you nothing but that which already lies half-asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
Gibran, Kahlil

18.
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
Ball, Lucille

19.
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.

20.
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.
Camus, Albert

21.
Sin, guilt, neurosis --they are one and the same, the fruit of the tree of knowledge.
Miller, Henry

22.
It's a dangerous thing to think we know everything.
Kuehler, Jack

23.
True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
Gracian, Baltasar

24.
Some students drink at the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.

25.
The less you know, the more you think you know, because you don't know you don't know.
Stevens, Ray

26.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
Addison, Joseph

27.
We don't know one-millionth of one percent about anything.
Edison, Thomas A.

28.
It is not the quantity but the quality of knowledge which determines the mind's dignity.
Channing, William Ellery

29.
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.
Gurdjieff, George

30.
Knowledge is knowing that we cannot know.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

31.
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.
Socrates

32.
He who does not know one thing knows another
Proverb, Kenyan

33.
You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
Traherne, Thomas

34.
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.
Locke, John

35.
Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.

36.
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

37.
No matter what happens, there's always somebody who knew it would.
Starr, Lonny

38.
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.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

39.
He who knows little quickly tells it.
Proverb, Italian

40.
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
Billings, Josh

41.
It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge.
Enrico Fermi

42.
To know yourself, see how others do, to know others look into your own heart.
Smiles, Sydney

43.
Some people drink deeply from the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
Bright, Grant M.

44.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
Manutius

45.
Far better is it to know everything of a little than a little of everything.
Pickering

46.
I honestly believe it is better to know nothing than to know what ain't so.
Billings, Josh

47.
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.
Zedong, Mao

48.
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

49.
Who knows most believes least.
Proverb

50.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
Kempis, Thomas
