Knowledge

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.
- Vaneigem, Raoul
Knowledge Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
Knowledge fills a large brain; it merely inflates a small one.

2.
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
Markham, Beryl

3.
Knowledge like timber shouldn't be mush use till they are seasoned.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

4.
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.

5.
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.
Simmons, Jake

6.
No man knows less than the man who knows it all

7.
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.

8.
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.
Hobbes, Thomas

9.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. [King Solomon]
Bible

10.
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

11.
To know the right means of getting something done is virtually to have done it.
Caine, Mark

12.
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

13.
'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.
Pound, Ezra

14.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles at it.
Margaret Fuller

15.
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

16.
The man who is too old to learn was probably always too old to learn.
Haskins, Caryl

17.
Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.
Fuller, Thomas

18.
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
Billings, Josh

19.
I wish I knew what I know now before.
Stewart, Rod

20.
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.
Sophocles

21.
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one's country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
Manutius

22.
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.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

23.
When one is a stranger to oneself then one is estranged from others too.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow

24.
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

25.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
Kempis, Thomas

26.
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)

27.
I was born not knowing and have had only a little time to change that here and there.
Richard Feynman

28.
Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; love by love.
Szasz, Thomas

29.
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.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

30.
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.
Eliot, George

31.
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.

32.
Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
Know-how will surpass guess-how.

34.
I have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things, and I have succeeded fairly well.
Benchley, Robert

35.
Know thyself. Nothing in excess. The Self is required to balance the Self.
Ralph, Blum

36.
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
Wiesel, Elie

37.
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.

38.
Nothing is too small to know, and nothing too big to attempt.
Van Horne, William

39.
Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch.
Ball, Ivern

40.
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.

41.
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.

42.
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self.
Franklin, Benjamin

43.
Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information on it.
Samuel Johnson

44.
Those who think they know it all are very annoying to those of us who do.
Mueller, Robert K.

45.
Man knows more than he understands.
Adler, Alfred

46.
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.
Lorenz, Konrad

47.
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.
Camus, Albert

48.
During the last century, and part of the one before, it was widely held that there was an unreconcilable conflict between knowledge and belief.
Einstein, Albert

49.
Oh how fine it is to know a thing or two!
Moliere

50.
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.
Benjamin, Walter
