Best Quotes about Knowledge
Many of us don't have to turn out the lights to be in the dark.
Everything has been said yet few have taken advantage of it. Since all our knowledge is essentially banal, it can only be of value to minds that are not.
Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Cicero, Marcus T.
There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.
To know the right means of getting something done is virtually to have done it.
I was born not knowing and have had only a little time to change that here and there.
I know myself as a human entity; the scene, so to speak, or thoughts are affection; and am sensible of certain doubleness by which I can stand as remote from myself as from another. However intense my experience, I am conscious of the presence and criticism of a part of me, which, as it were, is no part of me, but spectator, sharing no experience, but taking note of it, and that is no more I than it is you.
Thoreau, Henry David
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
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.
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.
Knowledge conquered by labor becomes a possession -- a property entirely our own.
Become aware of internal, subjective, sub-verbal experiences, so that these experiences can be brought into the world of abstraction, of conversation, of naming, etc. with the consequence that it immediately becomes possible for a certain amount of control to be exerted over these hitherto unconscious and uncontrollable processes.
Maslow, Abraham H.
Knowledge is of two kinds: We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information about it.
To grow wiser means to learn to know better and better the faults to which this instrument with which we feel and judge can be subject.
Lichtenberg, Georg C.
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.
He who knows little quickly tells it.
Men can acquire knowledge, but not wisdom. Some of the greatest fools ever known were learned men.
The man who is too old to learn was probably always too old to learn.
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
Every animal knows more than you do.
Proverb, Native American
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.
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.
Oh how fine it is to know a thing or two!
An age is called Dark not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it.
Michener, James A.
It is part of our pedagogy to teach the operations of thinking, feeling, and willing so that they may be made conscious. For if we do not know the difference between an emotion and a thought, we will know very little. We need to understand the components (of emotions) at work... in order to free their hold.
Richards, Mary Caroline
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.
Knowledge without practice is like a glass eye, all for show, and nothing for use.
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''
Knowledge, humbles a great person, astonishes the common, and puffs up the small.
True scholarship consists in knowing not what things exist, but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment.
Lowell, James Russell
Knowledge is power.
Sir Francis Bacon
Today knowledge has power. It controls access to opportunity and advancement.
Drucker, Peter F.
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
All men by nature desire knowledge.
The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one's own mind.
Bradley, Francis H.
Convinced myself, I seek not to convince.
Edgar Allan Poe
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
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.
He knows so little and knows it so fluently.
Knowledge is in the end based on acknowledgement.
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.
The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. [John 8:32]
Own more than thou showest, speak less than thou knowest.
To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge.
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 desire of knowledge, like the thirst for riches, increases ever with the acquisition of it.
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
The mark of a well educated person is not necessarily in knowing all the answers, but in knowing where to find them.
Without knowledge, life is not more than the shadow of death.
