Best Quotes about 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.
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
Knowledge like timber shouldn't be mush use till they are seasoned.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Nothing is too small to know, and nothing too big to attempt.
Van Horne, William
We have no organ at all for knowledge, for truth: we know (or believe or imagine) precisely as much as may be useful in the interest of the human herd, the species: and even what is here called usefulness is in the end only a belief, something imagined and perhaps precisely that most fatal piece of stupidity by which we shall one day perish.
It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.
Knowledge is ancient error reflecting on its youth.
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.
You can't know too much, but you can say too much.
Know thyself. A maxim as pernicious as it is ugly. Whoever studies himself arrest his own development. A caterpillar who seeks to know himself would never become a butterfly.
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.
Each department of knowledge passes through three stages. The theoretic stage; the theological stage and the metaphysical or abstract stage.
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.
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
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.
The knowledge of God is far from the love of Him.
We don't know one-millionth of one percent about anything.
Edison, Thomas A.
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.
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.
Oh how fine it is to know a thing or two!
It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge.
Knowledge fills a large brain; it merely inflates a small one.
Those who think they know it all are very annoying to those of us who do.
Mueller, Robert K.
It not knowing what to do, it's doing what you know.
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.
Boys, I may not know much, but I know chicken shit from chicken salad.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
Knowledge is the only elegance.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
I honestly believe it is better to know nothing than to know what ain't so.
Many people think of knowledge as money, They would like knowledge, but do not want to face the perseverance and self-denial that goes into the acquisition of it.
He who knows little quickly tells it.
And all your future lies beneath your hat.
To know oneself, one should assert oneself. Psychology is action, not thinking about oneself. We continue to shape our personality all our life. If we knew ourselves perfectly, we should die.
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.
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
How do you know so much about everything? was asked of a very wise and intelligent man; and the answer was By never being afraid or ashamed to ask questions as to anything of which I was ignorant.
If we value the pursuit of knowledge, we must be free to follow wherever that search may lead us. The free mind is not a barking dog, to be tethered on a ten-foot chain.
Adlai E. Stevenson Jr.
Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Knowledge is the treasure, but judgment is the treasurer of the one who is wise.
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!
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
He knows so little and knows it so fluently.
An age is called Dark not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it.
Michener, James A.
It is not good to know more unless we do more with what we already know.
Bergethon, R. K.
A knowledge of men is the prime secret of business success.
Mills, Darius Ogden
Knowledge always demands increase; it is like fire, which must first be kindled by some external agent, but will afterwards always propagate itself.
Without knowledge, life is not more than the shadow of death.
Knowledge of ourselves teaches us whence we come, where we are and whither we are going. We come from God and we are in exile; and it is because our potency of affection lends towards God that we are aware of this state of exile.
Ruysbroeck, Jan Van
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
Knowledge conquered by labor becomes a possession -- a property entirely our own.
