Best Quotes about Knowledge
Knowledge fills a large brain; it merely inflates a small one.
The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.
Kennedy, John F.
None of us is as smart as all of us.
Knowledge without practice is like a glass eye, all for show, and nothing for use.
A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.
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.
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.
It is not good to know more unless we do more with what we already know.
Bergethon, R. K.
I know myself, but that is all.
Fitzgerald, F. Scott
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
You have to know what's important and what's unimportant, for you.
Fink, David Harold
Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.
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
To learn to get along without, to realize that what the world is going to demand of us may be a good deal more important than what we are entitled to demand of it -- this is a hard lesson.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. [John 8:32]
To know yourself, see how others do, to know others look into your own heart.
Knowledge conquered by labor becomes a possession -- a property entirely our own.
No man can reveal to you nothing but that which already lies half-asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
To grow wiser means to learn to know better and better the faults to which this instrument with which we feel and judge can be subject.
Lichtenberg, Georg C.
Know yourself, master yourself, conquest of self is most gratifying.
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.
Some students drink at the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
Our treasure lies in the beehive of our knowledge. We are perpetually on the way thither, being by nature winged insects and honey gatherers of the mind.
He who does not know one thing knows another
Knowledge is power.
Sir Francis Bacon
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
Knowledge becomes evil if the aim be not virtuous.
Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch.
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.
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
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.
One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.
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.
Seldom if ever was knowledge given to keep, but always to impart. The grace of this rich jewel is lost in concealment.
I see men ordinarily more eager to discover a reason for things than to find out whether the things are so.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Charles V. said that a man who knew four languages was worth four men; and Alexander the Great so valued learning, that he used to say he was more indebted to Aristotle for giving him knowledge that, than his father Philip for giving him life.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
To succeed in business, to reach the top, an individual must know all it is possible to know about that business.
Getty, J. Paul
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.
Self knowers always dwell in El Dorado; they drink from the fountain of youth, and at all times owners of all they wish to enjoy.
Bristol, Claude M.
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.
Oh how fine it is to know a thing or two!
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.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that ain't so.
Once thoroughly our own knowledge ceases to give us pleasure.
The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one's own mind.
Bradley, Francis H.
Knowledge of the world in only to be acquired in the world, and not in a closet.
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 like timber shouldn't be mush use till they are seasoned.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Only a fool knows everything. A wise man knows how little he knows.
