Knowledge Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
The trouble with most folks ain't so much their ignorance as knowing so many things that ain't so.
Billings, Josh

2.
There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.
Socrates

3.
You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird... So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing -- that's what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.
Richard Feynman

4.
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

5.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
Szasz, Thomas

6.
Knowledge becomes evil if the aim be not virtuous.
Plato

7.
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

8.
There is a period of life when we swallow knowledge of ourselves and it becomes either good or sour inside.
Bailey, Pearl

9.
No man knows less than the man who knows it all

10.
Know yourself, master yourself, conquest of self is most gratifying.

11.
The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one's own mind.
Bradley, Francis H.

12.
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)

13.
The conqueror and king in each one of us is the knower of truth. Let the knower awaken in us and drive the horses of the mind, emotions, and physical body on the pathway which that king has chosen.
Arundale, George S.

14.
You have to know what's important and what's unimportant, for you.
Fink, David Harold

15.
It is better of course to know useless things than to know nothing.
Stoppard, Tom

16.
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

17.
I would have the studies elective. Scholarship is to be created not by compulsion, but by awakening a pure interest in knowledge. The wise instructor accomplishes this by opening to his pupils precisely the attractions the study has for himself. The marking is a system for schools, not for the college; for boys, not for men; and it is an ungracious work to put on a professor.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

18.
Be curious always! For knowledge will not acquire you: you must acquire it.
Back, Sudie

19.
Knowledge, like religion, must be experienced in order to be known.
Whipple, Edwin P.

20.
Today knowledge has power. It controls access to opportunity and advancement.
Drucker, Peter F.

21.
It seems to me that man is made to act rather than to know: the principles of things escape our most persevering researches.
Frederick The Great, (Frederick II)

22.
To know is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.
Confucius

23.
The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance.
Socrates

24.
Knowledge is the most democratic source of power.
Toffler, Alvin

25.
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
Degas, Edgar

26.
If we value the pursuit of knowledge, we must be free to follow wherever that search may lead us. The free mind is not a barking dog, to be tethered on a ten-foot chain.
Adlai E. Stevenson Jr.

27.
When you cease to strive to understand, then you will know without understanding.
Proverb, Chinese

28.
Knowledge is of two kinds: We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information about it.
Johnson, Samuel

29.
It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge.
Enrico Fermi

30.
The mark of a well educated person is not necessarily in knowing all the answers, but in knowing where to find them.
Everett, Douglas

31.
They are so knowing, that they know nothing.
Terence

32.
Seldom if ever was knowledge given to keep, but always to impart. The grace of this rich jewel is lost in concealment.
Hall, Bishop

33.
Know thyself. A maxim as pernicious as it is ugly. Whoever studies himself arrest his own development. A caterpillar who seeks to know himself would never become a butterfly.
Gide, Andre

34.
It's a dangerous thing to think we know everything.
Kuehler, Jack

35.
Only a fool knows everything. A wise man knows how little he knows.

36.
Knowledge is only potential power.
Hill, Napoleon

37.
When a person acts without knowledge of what he thinks, feels, needs or wants, he does not yet have the option of choosing to act differently.
Moustakas, Clark

38.
The most excellent and divine counsel, the best and most profitable advertisement of all others, but the least practiced, is to study and learn how to know ourselves. This is the foundation of wisdom and the highway to whatever is good. God, Nature, the wise, the world, preach man, exhort him both by word and deed to the study of himself.
Charron, Pierre

39.
He who knows others is clever; He who knows himself has discernment.
Lao-Tzu

40.
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

41.
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

42.
You can't know too much, but you can say too much.
Coolidge, Calvin

43.
He who knows little quickly tells it.
Proverb, Italian

44.
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

45.
To despise our own species is the price we must often pay for knowledge of it.
Colton, Charles Caleb

46.
Many a man who has known himself at ten forgets himself utterly between ten and thirty.
Bowen, Catherine Drinker

47.
Knowledge becomes wisdom only after it has been put to practical use.

48.
Man knows more than he understands.
Adler, Alfred

49.
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

50.
The knower and the known are one. Simple people imagine that they should see God as if he stood there and they here. This is not so. God and I, we are one in knowledge.
Eckhart, Meister
