Best Quotes about Knowledge
Knowledge is knowing that we cannot know.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
It's a dangerous thing to think we know everything.
Without wisdom, knowledge is either useless or destructive.
The degree of one's emotions varies inversely with one's knowledge of the facts- the less you know the hotter you get.
To succeed in business, to reach the top, an individual must know all it is possible to know about that business.
Getty, J. Paul
No man knows less than the man who knows it all
He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.
Mill, John Stuart
A superficial knowledge is not enough. It must be a knowledge capable of analyzing a situation quickly and making an immediate decision.
All knowledge is ambiguous.
Habgood, J. S.
As the biggest library if it is in disorder is not as useful as a small but well-arranged one, so you may accumulate a vast amount of knowledge but it will be of far less value to you than a much smaller amount if you have not thought it over for yourself.
True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
I wish I knew what I know now before.
Many a man who has known himself at ten forgets himself utterly between ten and thirty.
Bowen, Catherine Drinker
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.
Every man gets a narrower and narrower field of knowledge in which he must be an expert in order to compete with other people. The specialist knows more and more about less and less and finally knows everything about nothing.
Knowledge and human power are synonymous.
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
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
When you see the abyss, and we have looked into it, then what? There isn't much room at the edge -- one person, another, not many. If you are there, others cannot be there. If you are there, you become a protective wall. What happens? You become part of t
Knowledge, humbles a great person, astonishes the common, and puffs up the small.
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.
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
We don't know one-millionth of one percent about anything.
Edison, Thomas A.
There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.
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.
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.
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.
No matter what happens, there's always somebody who knew it would.
Search not to find things too deeply hid; Nor try to know things whose knowledge is forbid.
Denham, Sir John
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.
Oh how fine it is to know a thing or two!
Some people drink deeply from the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
Bright, Grant M.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
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.
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.
Knowledge, like religion, must be experienced in order to be known.
Whipple, Edwin P.
It is nothing for one to know something unless another knows you know it.
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
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.
One-tenth of the folks run the world. One-tenth watch them run it, and the other eighty percent don't know what the hell's going on.
Many of us don't have to turn out the lights to be in the dark.
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
Knowledge is power, if you know it about the right person
Mumford, Ethel Watts
Be curious always! For knowledge will not acquire you: you must acquire it.
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
Knowledge of the world in only to be acquired in the world, and not in a closet.
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.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. [John 8:32]
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.
