Knowledge

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.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

11.
Only a fool knows everything. A wise man knows how little he knows.

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.

17.
To know yourself you have only to set down a true statement of those that ever loved or hated you.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

18.
He knows so little and knows it so fluently.

Cronenberg, David

22.
Some people drink deeply from the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
Bright, Grant M.

23.
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.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

All men by nature desire knowledge.
Aristotle

Know-how will surpass guess-how.

31.
Be curious always! For knowledge will not acquire you: you must acquire it.
Back, Sudie

32.
The greater the knowledge, the greater the doubt.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
The trouble with most folks ain't so much their ignorance as knowing so many things that ain't so.
Billings, Josh

34.
Say oh wise man how you have come to such knowledge? Because I was never ashamed to confess my ignorance and ask others.
Herder, Johann Gottfried Von

35.
Knowledge is power, if you know it about the right person
Mumford, Ethel Watts

36.
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.
Bhagavad Gita

47.
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.
Eliot, George

48.
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.
Zedong, Mao

49.
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

50.
The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one's own mind.
Bradley, Francis H.
