Best Quotes about Knowledge
It is not the quantity but the quality of knowledge which determines the mind's dignity.
Channing, William Ellery
Who knows most believes least.
The next best thing to knowing something is knowing where to find it.
Many of us don't have to turn out the lights to be in the dark.
Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
And all your future lies beneath your hat.
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
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.
Knowledge is in the end based on acknowledgement.
The end of learning is to know God, and out of that knowledge to love Him and imitate Him.
Know-how will surpass guess-how.
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
Knowledge, humbles a great person, astonishes the common, and puffs up the small.
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.
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
Knowledge is only potential power.
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.
Search not to find things too deeply hid; Nor try to know things whose knowledge is forbid.
Denham, Sir John
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.
Knowledge is knowing that we cannot know.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
I have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things, and I have succeeded fairly well.
Only a fool knows everything. A wise man knows how little he knows.
Try to put well in practice what you already know. In so doing, you will, in good time, discover the hidden things you now inquire about.
Rembrandt (Harmenszoon van Rijn)
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.
No man can reveal to you nothing but that which already lies half-asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
Knowledge is power.
Sir Francis Bacon
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
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.
The mark of a well educated person is not necessarily in knowing all the answers, but in knowing where to find them.
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.
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.
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
A superficial knowledge is not enough. It must be a knowledge capable of analyzing a situation quickly and making an immediate decision.
Once thoroughly our own knowledge ceases to give us pleasure.
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.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles at it.
There is, so I believe, in the essence of everything, something that we cannot call learning. There is, my friend, only a knowledge -- that is everywhere.
Only as you do know yourself can your brain serve you as a sharp and efficient tool. Know your failings, passions, and prejudices so you can separate them from what you see. Know also when you actually have thought through to the nature of the thing with which you are dealing and when you are not thinking at all.
Baruch, Bernard M.
Convinced myself, I seek not to convince.
Edgar Allan Poe
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
We don't know one-millionth of one percent about anything.
Edison, Thomas A.
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information on it.
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.
Knowledge is ancient error reflecting on its youth.
Every animal knows more than you do.
Proverb, Native American
It seems to me that man is made to act rather than to know: the principles of things escape our most persevering researches.
Frederick The Great, (Frederick II)
He knows so little and knows it so fluently.
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.
We can only learn to know ourselves and do what we can -- namely, surrender our will and fulfill God's will in us.
Teresa of Avila, St.
