Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
We own almost all our knowledge not to those who have agreed but to those who have differed.
Colton, Charles Caleb

2.
Knowledge must come through action; you can have no test which is not fanciful, save by trial.
Sophocles

3.
One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.
Socrates

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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.
Catton, Bruce

7.
Many of us don't have to turn out the lights to be in the dark.

8.
They are so knowing, that they know nothing.
Terence

9.
It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.
Epictetus

10.
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

11.
Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.
Fuller, Thomas

12.
To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge.
Benjamin Disraeli

13.
Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.
Einstein, Albert

14.
The trouble with most folks ain't so much their ignorance as knowing so many things that ain't so.
Billings, Josh

15.
Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch.
Ball, Ivern

16.
Without knowledge, life is not more than the shadow of death.
Moliere

17.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
Addison, Joseph

18.
Knowledge of the world in only to be acquired in the world, and not in a closet.
Chesterfield, Lord

19.
The desire of knowledge, like the thirst for riches, increases ever with the acquisition of it.
Sterne, Laurence

20.
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

21.
Know, first, who you are, and then adorn yourself accordingly.
Epictetus

22.
Know thyself? If I knew myself I would run away.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

23.
Knowledge is only potential power.
Hill, Napoleon

24.
Know yourself, master yourself, conquest of self is most gratifying.

25.
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.

26.
Far better is it to know everything of a little than a little of everything.
Pickering

27.
Sin, guilt, neurosis --they are one and the same, the fruit of the tree of knowledge.
Miller, Henry

28.
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.

29.
There is a period of life when we swallow knowledge of ourselves and it becomes either good or sour inside.
Bailey, Pearl

30.
The long unmeasured pulse of time moves everything. There is nothing hidden that it cannot bring to light, nothing once known that may not become unknown.
Sophocles

31.
He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.
Mill, John Stuart

32.
Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.

33.
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

34.
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
Gibran, Kahlil

35.
A superficial knowledge is not enough. It must be a knowledge capable of analyzing a situation quickly and making an immediate decision.
Robert, Cavett

36.
Knowledge fills a large brain; it merely inflates a small one.

37.
Once thoroughly our own knowledge ceases to give us pleasure.
Ruskin, John

38.
It is better of course to know useless things than to know nothing.
Stoppard, Tom

39.
Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.
Drucker, Peter F.

40.
The knowledge of God is far from the love of Him.
Miller, Keith

41.
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
Billings, Josh

42.
Knowledge is the most democratic source of power.
Toffler, Alvin

43.
Oh how fine it is to know a thing or two!
Moliere

44.
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.

45.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. [John 8:32]
Bible

46.
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)

47.
It is, I fear, but a vain show of fulfilling the heathen precept, Know thyself, and too often leads to a self-estimate which will subsist in the absence of that fruit by which alone the quality of the tree is made evident.
Eliot, George

48.
Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

49.
Knowledge becomes wisdom only after it has been put to practical use.

50.
Knowledge is power, if you know it about the right person
Mumford, Ethel Watts
