Best Quotes about Knowledge
Seldom if ever was knowledge given to keep, but always to impart. The grace of this rich jewel is lost in concealment.
An age is called Dark not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it.
Michener, James A.
Knowledge is the treasure, but judgment is the treasurer of the one who is wise.
A superficial knowledge is not enough. It must be a knowledge capable of analyzing a situation quickly and making an immediate decision.
There's a theory, one I find persuasive, that the quest for knowledge is, at bottom, the search for the answer to the question: Where was I before I was born. In the beginning was what? Perhaps, in the beginning, there was a curious room, a room like this one, crammed with wonders; and now the room and all it contains are forbidden you, although it was made just for you, had been prepared for you since time began, and you will spend all your life trying to remember it.
Knowledge, humbles a great person, astonishes the common, and puffs up the small.
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
I know myself as a human entity; the scene, so to speak, or thoughts are affection; and am sensible of certain doubleness by which I can stand as remote from myself as from another. However intense my experience, I am conscious of the presence and criticism of a part of me, which, as it were, is no part of me, but spectator, sharing no experience, but taking note of it, and that is no more I than it is you.
Thoreau, Henry David
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.
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.
Man knows more than he understands.
Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou knowest, all thou hast, nor all thou cans't.
I want, by understanding myself, to understand others. I want to be all that I am capable of becoming.
Without knowledge, life is not more than the shadow of death.
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn't.
Brown, Francis Yeats
To know the right means of getting something done is virtually to have done it.
True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
Knowledge must come through action; you can have no test which is not fanciful, save by trial.
We are in fact convinced that if we are ever to have pure knowledge of anything, we must get rid of the body and contemplate things by themselves with the soul by itself. It seems, to judge from the argument, that the wisdom which we desire and upon which we profess to have set our hearts will be attainable only when we are dead and not in our lifetime.
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.
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.
A knowledge of men is the prime secret of business success.
Mills, Darius Ogden
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
Man is not weak; knowledge is more than equivalent to force.
There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.
One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.
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.
The greater the knowledge, the greater the doubt.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
There is no knowledge, no light, no wisdom that you are in possession of, but what you have received it from some source.
Search not to find things too deeply hid; Nor try to know things whose knowledge is forbid.
Denham, Sir John
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.
He knows the universe and does not know himself.
La Fontaine, Jean De
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.
Know-how will surpass guess-how.
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
Knowledge does not come to us in details, but in flashes of light from heaven.
Thoreau, Henry David
It is not the quantity but the quality of knowledge which determines the mind's dignity.
Channing, William Ellery
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.
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.
I honestly believe it is better to know nothing than to know what ain't so.
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.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. [John 8:32]
We don't know one-millionth of one percent about anything.
Edison, Thomas A.
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.
To despise our own species is the price we must often pay for knowledge of it.
Colton, Charles Caleb
Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.
Drucker, Peter F.
Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification.
Fischer, Martin H.
The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one's own mind.
Bradley, Francis H.
