Best Quotes about Knowledge
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.
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
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.
Men can acquire knowledge, but not wisdom. Some of the greatest fools ever known were learned men.
We don't know one-millionth of one percent about anything.
Edison, Thomas A.
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
Knowledge becomes wisdom only after it has been put to practical use.
There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.
Knowledge is the best eraser in the world for disharmony, distrust, despair, and the endless physical deficiencies of man.
Battista, Orlando A.
'Tis not need we know our every thought or see the work shop where each mask is wrought wherefrom we view the world of box and pit, careless of wear, just so the mask shall fit and serve our jape's turn for a night or two.
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 fills a large brain; it merely inflates a small one.
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 own almost all our knowledge not to those who have agreed but to those who have differed.
Colton, Charles Caleb
You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
Who knows most believes least.
Knowledge conquered by labor becomes a possession -- a property entirely our own.
Today knowledge has power. It controls access to opportunity and advancement.
Drucker, Peter F.
Of a truth, Knowledge is power, but it is a power reined by scruple, having a conscience of what must be and what may be; whereas Ignorance is a blind giant who, let him but wax unbound, would make it a sport to seize the pillars that hold up the long-wrought fabric of human good, and turn all the places of joy as dark as a buried Babylon.
I wish I knew what I know now before.
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
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.
Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.
Drucker, Peter F.
The greater the knowledge, the greater the doubt.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.
Nothing is too small to know, and nothing too big to attempt.
Van Horne, William
If people can be educated to see the lowly side of their own natures, it may be hoped that they will also learn to understand and to love their fellow men better. A little less hypocrisy and a little more tolerance towards oneself can only have good results in respect for our neighbor; for we are all too prone to transfer to our fellows the injustice and violence we inflict upon our own natures.
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. 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.
The degree of one's emotions varies inversely with one's knowledge of the facts- the less you know the hotter you get.
We are drowning in information and starving for knowledge.
Roger, Rutherford D.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
Many of us don't have to turn out the lights to be in the dark.
To know yourself, see how others do, to know others look into your own heart.
There is a period of life when we swallow knowledge of ourselves and it becomes either good or sour inside.
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
Some people drink deeply from the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
Bright, Grant M.
The knower and the known are one. Simple people imagine that they should see God as if he stood there and they here. This is not so. God and I, we are one in knowledge.
When you cease to strive to understand, then you will know without understanding.
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.
The man who is too old to learn was probably always too old to learn.
I want, by understanding myself, to understand others. I want to be all that I am capable of becoming.
Man is distinguished, not only by his reason; but also by this singular passion from other animals... which is a lust of the mind, that by a perseverance of delight in the continual and indefatigable generation of knowledge, exceeds the short vehemence of any carnal pleasure.
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.
You have to know what's important and what's unimportant, for you.
Fink, David Harold
To succeed in business, to reach the top, an individual must know all it is possible to know about that business.
Getty, J. Paul
Knowledge like timber shouldn't be mush use till they are seasoned.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
Each department of knowledge passes through three stages. The theoretic stage; the theological stage and the metaphysical or abstract stage.
Knowledge, like religion, must be experienced in order to be known.
Whipple, Edwin P.
