Knowledge

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

Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
Traherne, Thomas

2.
Try to put well in practice what you already know. In so doing, you will, in good time, discover the hidden things you now inquire about.
Rembrandt (Harmenszoon van Rijn)

3.
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
Bierce, Ambrose

Knowledge of the world in only to be acquired in the world, and not in a closet.
Chesterfield, Lord

5.
Be curious always! For knowledge will not acquire you: you must acquire it.
Back, Sudie

Many a man who has known himself at ten forgets himself utterly between ten and thirty.
Bowen, Catherine Drinker

Knowledge is only potential power.
Hill, Napoleon

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

10.
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
Gibran, Kahlil

He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.
Mill, John Stuart

14.
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.
Eric Schmidt

15.
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.
Carter, Angela

16.
Knowledge is the best eraser in the world for disharmony, distrust, despair, and the endless physical deficiencies of man.
Battista, Orlando A.

17.
Boys, I may not know much, but I know chicken shit from chicken salad.
Johnson, Lyndon B.

18.
Knowledge fills a large brain; it merely inflates a small one.

19.
Knowledge becomes evil if the aim be not virtuous.
Plato

20.
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.
Hobbes, Thomas

21.
Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.

22.
Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.
Fuller, Thomas

23.
Man knows more than he understands.
Adler, Alfred

24.
Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou knowest, all thou hast, nor all thou cans't.
Franklin, Benjamin

25.
Never by reflection, but only by doing is self-knowledge possible to one.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

26.
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
Wiesel, Elie

27.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
Szasz, Thomas

28.
Knowledge without education is but armed injustice.
Horace

29.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. [John 8:32]
Bible

30.
He knows the universe and does not know himself.
La Fontaine, Jean De

31.
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.
Eliot, George

32.
Without wisdom, knowledge is either useless or destructive.

33.
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.
Confucius

34.
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.

35.
He that knows himself, knows others; and he that is ignorant of himself, could not write a very profound lecture on other men's heads.
Colton, Charles Caleb

36.
Knowledge is the treasure, but judgment is the treasurer of the one who is wise.
Penn, William

37.
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.

38.
True scholarship consists in knowing not what things exist, but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment.
Lowell, James Russell

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

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

45.
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.
Gurdjieff, George

46.
There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.
Socrates

47.
We forge gradually our greatest instrument for understanding the world -- introspection. We discover that humanity may resemble us very considerably -- that the best way of knowing the inwardness of our neighbors is to know ourselves.
Lippmann, Walter

48.
I know myself, but that is all.
Fitzgerald, F. Scott

49.
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.
Holt, John

50.
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.
Cronenberg, David
