Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
We are drowning in information and starving for knowledge.
Roger, Rutherford D.

2.
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
Bertrand Russell

3.
Seldom if ever was knowledge given to keep, but always to impart. The grace of this rich jewel is lost in concealment.
Hall, Bishop

4.
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.

5.
Knowledge is proud that it knows so much; Wisdom is humble that it knows no more.
Cowper, William

6.
To know yourself, see how others do, to know others look into your own heart.
Smiles, Sydney

7.
He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.
Mill, John Stuart

8.
Many of us don't have to turn out the lights to be in the dark.

9.
To know is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.
Confucius

10.
Be curious always! For knowledge will not acquire you: you must acquire it.
Back, Sudie

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
Bible

There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
Morrison, Jim

13.
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
Degas, Edgar

14.
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.
Camus, Albert

15.
The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.
Kennedy, John F.

16.
The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one's own mind.
Bradley, Francis H.

17.
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
Gibran, Kahlil

18.
Knowledge is the only elegance.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

19.
All men by nature desire knowledge.
Aristotle

20.
Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification.
Fischer, Martin H.

21.
Knowledge is power, if you know it about the right person
Mumford, Ethel Watts

22.
Men can acquire knowledge, but not wisdom. Some of the greatest fools ever known were learned men.
Proverb, Spanish

23.
Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

24.
Boys, I may not know much, but I know chicken shit from chicken salad.
Johnson, Lyndon B.

25.
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

26.
Knowledge is power.
Sir Francis Bacon

27.
Knowledge is only potential power.
Hill, Napoleon

28.
The long unmeasured pulse of time moves everything. There is nothing hidden that it cannot bring to light, nothing once known that may not become unknown.
Sophocles

29.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
Addison, Joseph

30.
Knowledge is the most democratic source of power.
Toffler, Alvin

31.
Many a man who has known himself at ten forgets himself utterly between ten and thirty.
Bowen, Catherine Drinker

32.
I find that a great part of the information I have, was acquired by looking up something and finding something else on the way.
Adams, Franklin P.

33.
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.
Jung, Carl

34.
A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.
Castaneda, Carlos

35.
True scholarship consists in knowing not what things exist, but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment.
Lowell, James Russell

36.
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.
Keller, Helen

37.
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
Billings, Josh

38.
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

39.
Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

40.
No man can reveal to you nothing but that which already lies half-asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
Gibran, Kahlil

41.
We live on an island surrounded by a sea of ignorance. As our island of knowledge grows, so does the shore of our ignorance.
Wheeler, John Archibald

42.
Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.

43.
The degree of one's emotions varies inversely with one's knowledge of the facts- the less you know the hotter you get.
Russell, Bertrand

44.
Know yourself, master yourself, conquest of self is most gratifying.

45.
He who knows others is clever; He who knows himself has discernment.
Lao-Tzu

46.
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
Ball, Lucille

47.
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
Bierce, Ambrose

48.
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

49.
When you cease to strive to understand, then you will know without understanding.
Proverb, Chinese

50.
The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that ain't so.
Twain, Mark
