Knowledge

True scholarship consists in knowing not what things exist, but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment.
- Lowell, James Russell

Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch.
Ball, Ivern

2.
Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

3.
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

4.
God grant that not only the love of liberty but a thorough knowledge of the rights of man may pervade all the nations of the earth, so that a philosopher may set his foot anywhere on its surface and say: This is my country!
Franklin, Benjamin

5.
Nothing is too small to know, and nothing too big to attempt.
Van Horne, William

6.
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.
Eckhart, Meister

7.
He who knows others is clever; He who knows himself has discernment.
Lao-Tzu

8.
Seldom if ever was knowledge given to keep, but always to impart. The grace of this rich jewel is lost in concealment.
Hall, Bishop

9.
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self.
Franklin, Benjamin

10.
If people can be educated to see the lowly side of their own natures, it may be hoped that they will also learn to understand and to love their fellow men better. A little less hypocrisy and a little more tolerance towards oneself can only have good results in respect for our neighbor; for we are all too prone to transfer to our fellows the injustice and violence we inflict upon our own natures.
Jung, Carl

11.
Knowledge is of two kinds: We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information about it.
Johnson, Samuel

12.
Know yourself, master yourself, conquest of self is most gratifying.

13.
'Tis not need we know our every thought or see the work shop where each mask is wrought wherefrom we view the world of box and pit, careless of wear, just so the mask shall fit and serve our jape's turn for a night or two.
Pound, Ezra

14.
To succeed in business, to reach the top, an individual must know all it is possible to know about that business.
Getty, J. Paul

15.
Knowledge is ancient error reflecting on its youth.
Picabia, Francis

16.
When you cease to strive to understand, then you will know without understanding.
Proverb, Chinese

17.
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

18.
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.
Confucius

19.
I know myself, but that is all.
Fitzgerald, F. Scott

20.
He knows the universe and does not know himself.
La Fontaine, Jean De

21.
Many a man who has known himself at ten forgets himself utterly between ten and thirty.
Bowen, Catherine Drinker

22.
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

23.
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

24.
When a person acts without knowledge of what he thinks, feels, needs or wants, he does not yet have the option of choosing to act differently.
Moustakas, Clark

25.
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.

26.
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.
Diderot, Denis

27.
Only a fool knows everything. A wise man knows how little he knows.

28.
Some people drink deeply from the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
Bright, Grant M.

29.
Know, first, who you are, and then adorn yourself accordingly.
Epictetus

30.
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.
Lippmann, Walter

31.
It's a dangerous thing to think we know everything.
Kuehler, Jack

32.
None of us is as smart as all of us.
Eric Schmidt

33.
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

34.
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.

35.
It is better of course to know useless things than to know nothing.
Stoppard, Tom

36.
It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.
Epictetus

37.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
Kempis, Thomas

38.
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
Bertrand Russell

39.
Without wisdom, knowledge is either useless or destructive.

40.
A knowledge of men is the prime secret of business success.
Mills, Darius Ogden

41.
One secures the gold of the spirit when he finds himself.
Bristol, Claude M.

42.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
Szasz, Thomas

43.
We are drowning in information and starving for knowledge.
Roger, Rutherford D.

44.
Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.
Einstein, Albert

45.
Convinced myself, I seek not to convince.
Edgar Allan Poe

46.
Knowledge of the world in only to be acquired in the world, and not in a closet.
Chesterfield, Lord

47.
And all your future lies beneath your hat.
Oldham, John

48.
The tree of knowledge is not the tree of life! And yet can we cast out of our spirits all the good or evil poured into them by so many learned generations? Ignorance cannot be learned.
Nerval, Gerard De

49.
It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge.
Enrico Fermi

50.
To know yet to think that one does not know is best; Not to know yet to think that one knows will lead to difficulty.
Lao-Tzu
