Best Quotes about Knowledge
Knowledge fills a large brain; it merely inflates a small one.
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
Knowledge like timber shouldn't be mush use till they are seasoned.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Inside myself is a place where I live all alone and that is where I renew my springs that never dry up.
Buck, Pearl S.
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.
No man knows less than the man who knows it all
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.
Man is distinguished, not only by his reason; but also by this singular passion from other animals... which is a lust of the mind, that by a perseverance of delight in the continual and indefatigable generation of knowledge, exceeds the short vehemence of any carnal pleasure.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
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.
To know the right means of getting something done is virtually to have done it.
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
'Tis not need we know our every thought or see the work shop where each mask is wrought wherefrom we view the world of box and pit, careless of wear, just so the mask shall fit and serve our jape's turn for a night or two.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles at it.
Knowledge is and will be produced in order to be sold, it is and will be consumed in order to be valorized in a new production: in both cases, the goal is exchange. Knowledge ceases to be an end in itself, it loses its use-value.
Lyotard, Jean Francois
The man who is too old to learn was probably always too old to learn.
Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
I wish I knew what I know now before.
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.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
We have no organ at all for knowledge, for truth: we know (or believe or imagine) precisely as much as may be useful in the interest of the human herd, the species: and even what is here called usefulness is in the end only a belief, something imagined and perhaps precisely that most fatal piece of stupidity by which we shall one day perish.
When one is a stranger to oneself then one is estranged from others too.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
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.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
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)
I was born not knowing and have had only a little time to change that here and there.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
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.
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.
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.
Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Know-how will surpass guess-how.
I have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things, and I have succeeded fairly well.
Know thyself. Nothing in excess. The Self is required to balance the Self.
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
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.
Nothing is too small to know, and nothing too big to attempt.
Van Horne, William
Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch.
Self knowers always dwell in El Dorado; they drink from the fountain of youth, and at all times owners of all they wish to enjoy.
Bristol, Claude M.
We can only learn to know ourselves and do what we can -- namely, surrender our will and fulfill God's will in us.
Teresa of Avila, St.
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self.
Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information on it.
Those who think they know it all are very annoying to those of us who do.
Mueller, Robert K.
Man knows more than he understands.
Every man gets a narrower and narrower field of knowledge in which he must be an expert in order to compete with other people. The specialist knows more and more about less and less and finally knows everything about nothing.
To know oneself, one should assert oneself. Psychology is action, not thinking about oneself. We continue to shape our personality all our life. If we knew ourselves perfectly, we should die.
During the last century, and part of the one before, it was widely held that there was an unreconcilable conflict between knowledge and belief.
Oh how fine it is to know a thing or two!
He who seeks to approach his own buried past must conduct himself like a man digging. He must not be afraid to return again and again to the same matter; to scatter it as one scatters earth, to turn it over as one turns over soil. For the matter itself is only a deposit, a stratum, which yields only to the most meticulous examination what constitutes the real treasure hidden within the earth: the images, severed from all earlier associations, that stand --like precious fragments or torsos in a collector's gallery --in the prosaic rooms of our later understanding.
