Knowledge

Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned.
- Holt, John

Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
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.
Charron, Pierre

2.
You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird... So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing -- that's what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.
Richard Feynman

3.
Knowledge, without common sense, says Lee, is folly; without method, it is waste; without kindness, it is fanaticism; without religion, it is death. But with common sense, it is wisdom with method, it is power; with clarity, it is beneficence; with religion, it is virtue, and life, and peace.
Farrar, Austin

4.
No matter what happens, there's always somebody who knew it would.
Starr, Lonny

5.
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
Billings, Josh

6.
We are drowning in information and starving for knowledge.
Roger, Rutherford D.

7.
One secures the gold of the spirit when he finds himself.
Bristol, Claude M.

8.
You have to know what's important and what's unimportant, for you.
Fink, David Harold

9.
As the biggest library if it is in disorder is not as useful as a small but well-arranged one, so you may accumulate a vast amount of knowledge but it will be of far less value to you than a much smaller amount if you have not thought it over for yourself.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

10.
When you know a thing, to hold that you know it; and when you do not know a thing, to allow that you do not know it - this is knowledge.
Confucius

11.
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.

12.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
Szasz, Thomas

13.
The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.
Kennedy, John F.

14.
During the last century, and part of the one before, it was widely held that there was an unreconcilable conflict between knowledge and belief.
Einstein, Albert

15.
Each department of knowledge passes through three stages. The theoretic stage; the theological stage and the metaphysical or abstract stage.
Comte, Auguste

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Knowledge fills a large brain; it merely inflates a small one.

19.
The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance.
Socrates

20.
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

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

22.
Never by reflection, but only by doing is self-knowledge possible to one.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

23.
Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification.
Fischer, Martin H.

24.
The hunger and thirst for knowledge, the keen delight in the chase, the good humored willingness to admit that the scent was false, the eager desire to get on with the work, the cheerful resolution to go back and begin again, the broad good sense, the unaffected modesty, the imperturbable temper, the gratitude for any little help that was given -- all these will remain in my memory though I cannot paint them for others.
Maitland, Frederic William

25.
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

26.
Everything has been said yet few have taken advantage of it. Since all our knowledge is essentially banal, it can only be of value to minds that are not.
Vaneigem, Raoul

27.
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.

28.
He who knows little quickly tells it.
Proverb, Italian

29.
Knowledge is what we get when an observer, preferably a scientifically trained observer, provides us with a copy of reality that we can all recognize.
Lasch, Christopher

30.
True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
Gracian, Baltasar

31.
He who seeks to approach his own buried past must conduct himself like a man digging. He must not be afraid to return again and again to the same matter; to scatter it as one scatters earth, to turn it over as one turns over soil. For the matter itself is only a deposit, a stratum, which yields only to the most meticulous examination what constitutes the real treasure hidden within the earth: the images, severed from all earlier associations, that stand --like precious fragments or torsos in a collector's gallery --in the prosaic rooms of our later understanding.
Benjamin, Walter

32.
Knowledge does not come to us in details, but in flashes of light from heaven.
Thoreau, Henry David

33.
To despise our own species is the price we must often pay for knowledge of it.
Colton, Charles Caleb

34.
The conqueror and king in each one of us is the knower of truth. Let the knower awaken in us and drive the horses of the mind, emotions, and physical body on the pathway which that king has chosen.
Arundale, George S.

35.
Knowledge like timber shouldn't be mush use till they are seasoned.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

36.
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
Markham, Beryl

37.
Knowledge is of two kinds: We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information about it.
Johnson, Samuel

38.
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.

39.
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

40.
We don't know one-millionth of one percent about anything.
Edison, Thomas A.

41.
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.
Bhagavad Gita

42.
Only a fool knows everything. A wise man knows how little he knows.

43.
Knowledge without practice is like a glass eye, all for show, and nothing for use.
Swinnock

44.
Knowledge without education is but armed injustice.
Horace

45.
The knowledge of God is far from the love of Him.
Miller, Keith

46.
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn't.
Brown, Francis Yeats

47.
I would have the studies elective. Scholarship is to be created not by compulsion, but by awakening a pure interest in knowledge. The wise instructor accomplishes this by opening to his pupils precisely the attractions the study has for himself. The marking is a system for schools, not for the college; for boys, not for men; and it is an ungracious work to put on a professor.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

48.
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

49.
Knowledge is and will be produced in order to be sold, it is and will be consumed in order to be valorized in a new production: in both cases, the goal is exchange. Knowledge ceases to be an end in itself, it loses its use-value.
Lyotard, Jean Francois

50.
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
