Best Quotes about Knowledge
The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one's own mind.
Bradley, Francis H.
I know myself, but that is all.
Fitzgerald, F. Scott
Knowledge, humbles a great person, astonishes the common, and puffs up the small.
Without knowledge, life is not more than the shadow of death.
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.
Know-how will surpass guess-how.
He who knows little quickly tells it.
Own more than thou showest, speak less than thou knowest.
Today knowledge has power. It controls access to opportunity and advancement.
Drucker, Peter F.
In the advance of civilization, it is new knowledge which paves the way, and the pavement is eternal.
Whitney, W. R.
You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird... So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing -- that's what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.
One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.
Knowledge without education is but armed injustice.
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.
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
Be curious always! For knowledge will not acquire you: you must acquire it.
Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.
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.
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou knowest, all thou hast, nor all thou cans't.
Many of us don't have to turn out the lights to be in the dark.
None of us is as smart as all of us.
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
You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
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.
All knowledge is ambiguous.
Habgood, J. S.
If you want to know the taste of a pear, you must change the pear by eating it yourself. If you want to know the theory and methods of revolution, you must take part in revolution. All genuine knowledge originates in direct experience.
To know is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.
I wish I knew what I know now before.
You have to know what's important and what's unimportant, for you.
Fink, David Harold
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.
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
Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
It's a dangerous thing to think we know everything.
Knowledge becomes evil if the aim be not virtuous.
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.
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.
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
Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.
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
The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.
Kennedy, John F.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. [John 8:32]
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 desire of knowledge, like the thirst for riches, increases ever with the acquisition of it.
Only a fool knows everything. A wise man knows how little he knows.
We are drowning in information and starving for knowledge.
Roger, Rutherford D.
A knowledge of men is the prime secret of business success.
Mills, Darius Ogden
To despise our own species is the price we must often pay for knowledge of it.
Colton, Charles Caleb
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn't.
Brown, Francis Yeats
