Knowledge

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

Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
He who knows little quickly tells it.
Proverb, Italian

2.
Knowledge is the only elegance.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

3.
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.
Samuel Johnson

4.
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
Ball, Lucille

5.
God grant that not only the love of liberty but a thorough knowledge of the rights of man may pervade all the nations of the earth, so that a philosopher may set his foot anywhere on its surface and say: This is my country!
Franklin, Benjamin

6.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. [John 8:32]

Camus, Albert

8.
Knowledge is the most democratic source of power.
Toffler, Alvin

9.
You have to know what's important and what's unimportant, for you.
Fink, David Harold

Knowledge always demands increase; it is like fire, which must first be kindled by some external agent, but will afterwards always propagate itself.
Johnson, Samuel

11.
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self.
Franklin, Benjamin

12.
When one is a stranger to oneself then one is estranged from others too.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow

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.

14.
Knowledge becomes evil if the aim be not virtuous.
Plato

15.
Knowledge may give weight, but accomplishments give luster, and many more people see than weigh.
Chesterfield, Lord

16.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
Szasz, Thomas

17.
We are drowning in information and starving for knowledge.
Roger, Rutherford D.

18.
The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one's own mind.
Bradley, Francis H.

19.
To learn to get along without, to realize that what the world is going to demand of us may be a good deal more important than what we are entitled to demand of it -- this is a hard lesson.
Catton, Bruce

20.
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

21.
It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge.
Enrico Fermi

22.
Those who think they know it all are very annoying to those of us who do.
Mueller, Robert K.

23.
Boys, I may not know much, but I know chicken shit from chicken salad.
Johnson, Lyndon B.

24.
What's scary in life is not what people know (or don't know), but what they know that ain't so.
Paige, Leroy ''Satchel''

25.
Knowledge and timber shouldn't be much used till they are seasoned.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

26.
Know-how will surpass guess-how.

27.
One-tenth of the folks run the world. One-tenth watch them run it, and the other eighty percent don't know what the hell's going on.
Simmons, Jake

28.
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.

29.
There is no knowledge, no light, no wisdom that you are in possession of, but what you have received it from some source.
Young, Brigham

30.
Knowledge like timber shouldn't be mush use till they are seasoned.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

31.
A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.
Castaneda, Carlos

32.
Own more than thou showest, speak less than thou knowest.
Shakespeare, William

33.
Convinced myself, I seek not to convince.
Edgar Allan Poe

34.
The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance.
Socrates

35.
No man can reveal to you nothing but that which already lies half-asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
Gibran, Kahlil

36.
It is nothing for one to know something unless another knows you know it.
Proverb, Persian

37.
A superficial knowledge is not enough. It must be a knowledge capable of analyzing a situation quickly and making an immediate decision.
Robert, Cavett

38.
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

39.
Only a fool knows everything. A wise man knows how little he knows.

40.
When you cease to strive to understand, then you will know without understanding.
Proverb, Chinese

41.
All knowledge is ambiguous.
Habgood, J. S.

42.
To know is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.
Confucius

43.
He knows the universe and does not know himself.
La Fontaine, Jean De

44.
There are three principal means of acquiring knowledge available to us: observation of nature, reflection, and experimentation. Observation collects facts; reflection combines them; experimentation verifies the result of that combination. Our observation of nature must be diligent, our reflection profound, and our experiments exact. We rarely see these three means combined; and for this reason, creative geniuses are not common.
Diderot, Denis

45.
The hunger and thirst for knowledge, the keen delight in the chase, the good humored willingness to admit that the scent was false, the eager desire to get on with the work, the cheerful resolution to go back and begin again, the broad good sense, the unaffected modesty, the imperturbable temper, the gratitude for any little help that was given -- all these will remain in my memory though I cannot paint them for others.
Maitland, Frederic William

46.
Knowledge is the treasure, but judgment is the treasurer of the one who is wise.
Penn, William

47.
Knowledge is power.
Sir Francis Bacon

48.
The trouble with most folks ain't so much their ignorance as knowing so many things that ain't so.
Billings, Josh

49.
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

50.
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
