Best Quotes about Knowledge
Knowledge, like religion, must be experienced in order to be known.
Whipple, Edwin P.
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.
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
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)
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
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.
All men by nature desire knowledge.
They are so knowing, that they know nothing.
I honestly believe it is better to know nothing than to know what ain't so.
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.
Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification.
Fischer, Martin H.
Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
The knowledge of an unlearned man is living and luxuriant like a forest, but covered with mosses and lichens and for the most part inaccessible and going to waste; the knowledge of the man of science is like timber collected in yards for public works, which still supports a green sprout here and there, but even this is liable to dry rot.
Thoreau, Henry David
No man knows less than the man who knows it all
Knowledge is proud that it knows so much; Wisdom is humble that it knows no more.
An age is called Dark not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it.
Michener, James A.
Knowledge without education is but armed injustice.
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.
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.
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
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.
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.
You have to know what's important and what's unimportant, for you.
Fink, David Harold
Knowledge and timber shouldn't be much used till they are seasoned.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
To know yourself, see how others do, to know others look into your own heart.
Knowledge, humbles a great person, astonishes the common, and puffs up the small.
I have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things, and I have succeeded fairly well.
Our treasure lies in the beehive of our knowledge. We are perpetually on the way thither, being by nature winged insects and honey gatherers of the mind.
Knowledge is and will be produced in order to be sold, it is and will be consumed in order to be valorized in a new production: in both cases, the goal is exchange. Knowledge ceases to be an end in itself, it loses its use-value.
Lyotard, Jean Francois
To know is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.
Knowledge, without common sense, says Lee, is folly; without method, it is waste; without kindness, it is fanaticism; without religion, it is death. But with common sense, it is wisdom with method, it is power; with clarity, it is beneficence; with religion, it is virtue, and life, and peace.
Knowledge is not a passion from without the mind, but an active exertion of the inward strength, vigor and power of the mind, displaying itself from within.
Cudworth, Ralph J.
True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that ain't so.
People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge.
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.
Who knows most believes least.
Some students drink at the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
A wise man, when asked how he had learned so much about everything, replied: By never being ashamed or afraid to ask questions about anything of which I was ignorant.
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.
There is no knowledge, no light, no wisdom that you are in possession of, but what you have received it from some source.
Knowledge is the only elegance.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles at it.
There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.
True scholarship consists in knowing not what things exist, but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment.
Lowell, James Russell
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.
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.
The greater the knowledge, the greater the doubt.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
It is what we think we know already that often prevents us from learning.
