Motivational Quotes

Knowledge

Become aware of internal, subjective, sub-verbal experiences, so that these experiences can be brought into the world of abstraction, of conversation, of naming, etc. with the consequence that it immediately becomes possible for a certain amount of control to be exerted over these hitherto unconscious and uncontrollable processes.
- Maslow, Abraham H.

Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

2.
He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.
Mill, John Stuart

3.
I have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things, and I have succeeded fairly well.
Benchley, Robert

4.
The degree of one's emotions varies inversely with one's knowledge of the facts- the less you know the hotter you get.
Russell, Bertrand

5.
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.

6.
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self.
Franklin, Benjamin

7.
All men by nature desire knowledge.
Aristotle

8.
You have to know what's important and what's unimportant, for you.
Fink, David Harold

9.
Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

10.
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

11.
Knowledge and timber shouldn't be much used till they are seasoned.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

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

13.
Those who think they know it all are very annoying to those of us who do.
Mueller, Robert K.

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

16.
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.

17.
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

18.
It is part of our pedagogy to teach the operations of thinking, feeling, and willing so that they may be made conscious. For if we do not know the difference between an emotion and a thought, we will know very little. We need to understand the components (of emotions) at work... in order to free their hold.
Richards, Mary Caroline

19.
He who knows little quickly tells it.
Proverb, Italian

20.
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

21.
A knowledge of men is the prime secret of business success.
Mills, Darius Ogden

22.
Knowledge does not come to us in details, but in flashes of light from heaven.
Thoreau, Henry David

23.
Be curious always! For knowledge will not acquire you: you must acquire it.
Back, Sudie

24.
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

25.
Today knowledge has power. It controls access to opportunity and advancement.
Drucker, Peter F.

26.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles at it.
Margaret Fuller

27.
You have to believe in God before you can say there are things that man was not meant to know. I don't think there's anything man wasn't meant to know. There are just some stupid things that people shouldn't do.
Cronenberg, David

28.
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

29.
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.
Locke, John

30.
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

31.
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.

32.
It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.
Epictetus

33.
Seldom if ever was knowledge given to keep, but always to impart. The grace of this rich jewel is lost in concealment.
Hall, Bishop

34.
Knowledge without practice is like a glass eye, all for show, and nothing for use.
Swinnock

35.
He knows so little and knows it so fluently.
Glasgow, Ellen

36.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
Addison, Joseph

37.
Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification.
Fischer, Martin H.

38.
We own almost all our knowledge not to those who have agreed but to those who have differed.
Colton, Charles Caleb

39.
Knowledge and human power are synonymous.
Bacon, Francis

40.
Know-how will surpass guess-how.

41.
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.
Eric Schmidt

42.
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.
Carter, Angela

43.
Knowledge is power.
Sir Francis Bacon

44.
Knowledge is only potential power.
Hill, Napoleon

45.
Once thoroughly our own knowledge ceases to give us pleasure.
Ruskin, John

46.
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
Ball, Lucille

47.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles with it.
Churchill, Winston

48.
The hunger and thirst for knowledge, the keen delight in the chase, the good humored willingness to admit that the scent was false, the eager desire to get on with the work, the cheerful resolution to go back and begin again, the broad good sense, the unaffected modesty, the imperturbable temper, the gratitude for any little help that was given -- all these will remain in my memory though I cannot paint them for others.
Maitland, Frederic William

49.
Without knowledge, life is not more than the shadow of death.
Moliere

50.
Man is not weak; knowledge is more than equivalent to force.
Johnson, Samuel
