Best Quotes about Knowledge
Our treasure lies in the beehive of our knowledge. We are perpetually on the way thither, being by nature winged insects and honey gatherers of the mind.
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
Each department of knowledge passes through three stages. The theoretic stage; the theological stage and the metaphysical or abstract stage.
Seldom if ever was knowledge given to keep, but always to impart. The grace of this rich jewel is lost in concealment.
It is not good to know more unless we do more with what we already know.
Bergethon, R. K.
There is, so I believe, in the essence of everything, something that we cannot call learning. There is, my friend, only a knowledge -- that is everywhere.
Oh how fine it is to know a thing or two!
A superficial knowledge is not enough. It must be a knowledge capable of analyzing a situation quickly and making an immediate decision.
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.
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.
To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge.
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.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
In the advance of civilization, it is new knowledge which paves the way, and the pavement is eternal.
Whitney, W. R.
His priority did not seem to be to teach them what he knew, but rather to impress upon them that nothing, not even... knowledge, was foolproof.
J. K. Rowling
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
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
It is better of course to know useless things than to know nothing.
Man knows more than he understands.
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
Men can acquire knowledge, but not wisdom. Some of the greatest fools ever known were learned men.
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
It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.
Knowledge must come through action; you can have no test which is not fanciful, save by trial.
Know, first, who you are, and then adorn yourself accordingly.
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
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
No matter what happens, there's always somebody who knew it would.
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
Only a fool knows everything. A wise man knows how little he knows.
It's a dangerous thing to think we know everything.
Knowledge is proud that it knows so much; Wisdom is humble that it knows no more.
I have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things, and I have succeeded fairly well.
It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge.
No man can reveal to you nothing but that which already lies half-asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information on it.
Knowledge is not a passion from without the mind, but an active exertion of the inward strength, vigor and power of the mind, displaying itself from within.
Cudworth, Ralph J.
Knowledge is in the end based on acknowledgement.
The next best thing to knowing something is knowing where to find it.
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.
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''
One secures the gold of the spirit when he finds himself.
Bristol, Claude M.
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.
Convinced myself, I seek not to convince.
Edgar Allan Poe
There is no knowledge, no light, no wisdom that you are in possession of, but what you have received it from some source.
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.
Who knows most believes least.
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.
I wish I knew what I know now before.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles at it.
