Best Quotes about Knowledge
Knowledge is what we get when an observer, preferably a scientifically trained observer, provides us with a copy of reality that we can all recognize.
Knowledge, humbles a great person, astonishes the common, and puffs up the small.
Knowledge always demands increase; it is like fire, which must first be kindled by some external agent, but will afterwards always propagate itself.
Knowledge, without common sense, says Lee, is folly; without method, it is waste; without kindness, it is fanaticism; without religion, it is death. But with common sense, it is wisdom with method, it is power; with clarity, it is beneficence; with religion, it is virtue, and life, and peace.
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
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.
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.
You can't know too much, but you can say too much.
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
Knowledge does not come to us in details, but in flashes of light from heaven.
Thoreau, Henry David
He who knows others is clever; He who knows himself has discernment.
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.
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.
All knowledge is ambiguous.
Habgood, J. S.
In the advance of civilization, it is new knowledge which paves the way, and the pavement is eternal.
Whitney, W. R.
Nothing is too small to know, and nothing too big to attempt.
Van Horne, William
Vague and mysterious forms of speech, and abuse of language, have so long passed for mysteries of science; and hard or misapplied words with little or no meaning have, by prescription, such a right to be mistaken for deep learning and height of speculation, that it will not be easy to persuade either those who speak or those who hear them, that they are but the covers of ignorance and hindrance of true knowledge.
I was born not knowing and have had only a little time to change that here and there.
You have to believe in God before you can say there are things that man was not meant to know. I don't think there's anything man wasn't meant to know. There are just some stupid things that people shouldn't do.
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.
Charles V. said that a man who knew four languages was worth four men; and Alexander the Great so valued learning, that he used to say he was more indebted to Aristotle for giving him knowledge that, than his father Philip for giving him life.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.
Drucker, Peter F.
Knowledge like timber shouldn't be mush use till they are seasoned.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Once thoroughly our own knowledge ceases to give us pleasure.
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.
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 is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
To despise our own species is the price we must often pay for knowledge of it.
Colton, Charles Caleb
'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.
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
He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.
Mill, John Stuart
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.
You can live a lifetime and at the end, know more about other people than you know about yourself.
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.
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''
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.

Far better is it to know everything of a little than a little of everything.
Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.
Knowledge is power, if you know it about the right person
Mumford, Ethel Watts
