Best Quotes about Knowledge
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification.
Fischer, Martin H.
True scholarship consists in knowing not what things exist, but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment.
Lowell, James Russell
I was born not knowing and have had only a little time to change that here and there.
The end of learning is to know God, and out of that knowledge to love Him and imitate Him.

To know yourself, see how others do, to know others look into your own heart.
I see men ordinarily more eager to discover a reason for things than to find out whether the things are so.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
I have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things, and I have succeeded fairly well.
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.
Only a fool knows everything. A wise man knows how little he knows.
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.
When you know a thing, to hold that you know it; and when you do not know a thing, to allow that you do not know it - this is knowledge.
Boys, I may not know much, but I know chicken shit from chicken salad.
Johnson, Lyndon B.

Lavater, Johann Kaspar
He knows so little and knows it so fluently.
You have to know what's important and what's unimportant, for you.
Fink, David Harold
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.
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.
Some people drink deeply from the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
Bright, Grant M.
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.
All men by nature desire knowledge.
We own almost all our knowledge not to those who have agreed but to those who have differed.
Colton, Charles Caleb
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.

Edison, Thomas A.

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The trouble with most folks ain't so much their ignorance as knowing so many things that ain't so.

Herder, Johann Gottfried Von
Knowledge is power, if you know it about the right person
Mumford, Ethel Watts
Better indeed is knowledge than mechanical practice. Better than knowledge is meditation. But better still is surrender of attachment to results, because there follows immediate peace.
In the advance of civilization, it is new knowledge which paves the way, and the pavement is eternal.
Whitney, W. R.
A knowledge of men is the prime secret of business success.
Mills, Darius Ogden
Far better is it to know everything of a little than a little of everything.

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.
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.
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
The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one's own mind.
Bradley, Francis H.
