Best Quotes about Knowledge
Knowledge does not come to us in details, but in flashes of light from heaven.
Thoreau, Henry David
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.
I wish I knew what I know now before.
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
During the last century, and part of the one before, it was widely held that there was an unreconcilable conflict between knowledge and belief.
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self.
Knowledge must come through action; you can have no test which is not fanciful, save by trial.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
Only divine love bestows the keys of knowledge.

True scholarship consists in knowing not what things exist, but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment.
Lowell, James Russell
Knowledge is ancient error reflecting on its youth.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.

The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that ain't so.
Knowledge is the small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.
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)
Without knowledge, life is not more than the shadow of death.
Knowledge is power.
Sir Francis Bacon
He who does not know one thing knows another
He knows the universe and does not know himself.
La Fontaine, Jean De
You can't know too much, but you can say too much.
Knowledge, like religion, must be experienced in order to be known.
Whipple, Edwin P.
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.
All men by nature desire knowledge.
The man who is too old to learn was probably always too old to learn.
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.
Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.
I know myself, but that is all.
Fitzgerald, F. Scott
One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.
One secures the gold of the spirit when he finds himself.
Bristol, Claude M.
I have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things, and I have succeeded fairly well.
There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors.
A wise man, when asked how he had learned so much about everything, replied: By never being ashamed or afraid to ask questions about anything of which I was ignorant.
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.
Know-how will surpass guess-how.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.
Kennedy, John F.

Hunt, William Morris
True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
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.
Boys, I may not know much, but I know chicken shit from chicken salad.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
The end of learning is to know God, and out of that knowledge to love Him and imitate Him.
Search not to find things too deeply hid; Nor try to know things whose knowledge is forbid.
Denham, Sir John
