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.
Best Quotes about Knowledge
You have to know what's important and what's unimportant, for you.
Fink, David Harold
Of a truth, Knowledge is power, but it is a power reined by scruple, having a conscience of what must be and what may be; whereas Ignorance is a blind giant who, let him but wax unbound, would make it a sport to seize the pillars that hold up the long-wrought fabric of human good, and turn all the places of joy as dark as a buried Babylon.
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn't.
Brown, Francis Yeats
Say oh wise man how you have come to such knowledge? Because I was never ashamed to confess my ignorance and ask others.
Herder, Johann Gottfried Von
I find that a great part of the information I have, was acquired by looking up something and finding something else on the way.
Adams, Franklin P.
He knows so little and knows it so fluently.
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.
Knowledge is the best eraser in the world for disharmony, distrust, despair, and the endless physical deficiencies of man.
Battista, Orlando A.
A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don't know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox's or bear's, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there.
Only divine love bestows the keys of knowledge.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. [John 8:32]
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.
We have an opportunity for everyone in the world to have access to all the world's information. This has never before been possible. Why is ubiquitous information so profound? It's a tremendous equalizer. Information is power.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
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)
Knowledge is power. Rather, knowledge is happiness, because to have knowledge -- broad, deep knowledge -- is to know true ends from false, and lofty things from low. To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man's progress is to feel the great heartthrobs of humanity through the centuries; and if one does not feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life.
Man is not weak; knowledge is more than equivalent to force.
Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.
Drucker, Peter F.
To know yourself, see how others do, to know others look into your own heart.
Know thyself. Nothing in excess. The Self is required to balance the Self.
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.
To know is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.
Know-how will surpass guess-how.
Many of us don't have to turn out the lights to be in the dark.
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
All knowledge is ambiguous.
Habgood, J. S.
What's scary in life is not what people know (or don't know), but what they know that ain't so.
Paige, Leroy ''Satchel''
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
He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.
Mill, John Stuart
Those who think they know it all are very annoying to those of us who do.
Mueller, Robert K.
Sin, guilt, neurosis --they are one and the same, the fruit of the tree of knowledge.
Many a man who has known himself at ten forgets himself utterly between ten and thirty.
Bowen, Catherine Drinker
The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that ain't so.
The trouble with most folks ain't so much their ignorance as knowing so many things that ain't so.
Every animal knows more than you do.
Proverb, Native American
Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou knowest, all thou hast, nor all thou cans't.
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.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
You can always draw as well as you know how to. I flatter myself that I feel more than I express on canvas; but I know that is not so.
Hunt, William Morris
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
Knowledge of the world in only to be acquired in the world, and not in a closet.
Man knows more than he understands.
There are three principal means of acquiring knowledge available to us: observation of nature, reflection, and experimentation. Observation collects facts; reflection combines them; experimentation verifies the result of that combination. Our observation of nature must be diligent, our reflection profound, and our experiments exact. We rarely see these three means combined; and for this reason, creative geniuses are not common.
Knowledge, humbles a great person, astonishes the common, and puffs up the small.
Search not to find things too deeply hid; Nor try to know things whose knowledge is forbid.
Denham, Sir John
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.
The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one's own mind.
Bradley, Francis H.
The man who is too old to learn was probably always too old to learn.
No man can reveal to you nothing but that which already lies half-asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
The end of learning is to know God, and out of that knowledge to love Him and imitate Him.
