Knowledge Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Knowledge

1.
Once thoroughly our own knowledge ceases to give us pleasure.
Ruskin, John

2.
There is a period of life when we swallow knowledge of ourselves and it becomes either good or sour inside.
Bailey, Pearl

3.
Men can acquire knowledge, but not wisdom. Some of the greatest fools ever known were learned men.
Proverb, Spanish

4.
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.
Holt, John

5.
All men by nature desire knowledge.
Aristotle

6.
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.

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.
Never by reflection, but only by doing is self-knowledge possible to one.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

9.
Many a man who has known himself at ten forgets himself utterly between ten and thirty.
Bowen, Catherine Drinker

10.
Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.
Drucker, Peter F.

11.
Knowledge of ourselves teaches us whence we come, where we are and whither we are going. We come from God and we are in exile; and it is because our potency of affection lends towards God that we are aware of this state of exile.
Ruysbroeck, Jan Van

12.
Be curious always! For knowledge will not acquire you: you must acquire it.
Back, Sudie

13.
We are drowning in information and starving for knowledge.
Roger, Rutherford D.

14.
Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou knowest, all thou hast, nor all thou cans't.
Franklin, Benjamin

15.
Knowledge becomes wisdom only after it has been put to practical use.

16.
Search not to find things too deeply hid; Nor try to know things whose knowledge is forbid.
Denham, Sir John

17.
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
Bertrand Russell

18.
Knowledge is power.
Sir Francis Bacon

19.
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

20.
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

21.
Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
Samuel Johnson

22.
There's a theory, one I find persuasive, that the quest for knowledge is, at bottom, the search for the answer to the question: Where was I before I was born. In the beginning was what? Perhaps, in the beginning, there was a curious room, a room like this one, crammed with wonders; and now the room and all it contains are forbidden you, although it was made just for you, had been prepared for you since time began, and you will spend all your life trying to remember it.
Carter, Angela

23.
People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge.
Lao-tzu

24.
True scholarship consists in knowing not what things exist, but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment.
Lowell, James Russell

25.
Knowledge is power. Rather, knowledge is happiness, because to have knowledge -- broad, deep knowledge -- is to know true ends from false, and lofty things from low. To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man's progress is to feel the great heartthrobs of humanity through the centuries; and if one does not feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life.
Keller, Helen

26.
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

27.
Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

28.
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

29.
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

30.
We have an opportunity for everyone in the world to have access to all the world's information. This has never before been possible. Why is ubiquitous information so profound? It's a tremendous equalizer. Information is power.
Eric Schmidt

31.
Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification.
Fischer, Martin H.

32.
Knowledge conquered by labor becomes a possession -- a property entirely our own.
Smiles, Samuel

33.
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

34.
It is nothing for one to know something unless another knows you know it.
Proverb, Persian

35.
We forge gradually our greatest instrument for understanding the world -- introspection. We discover that humanity may resemble us very considerably -- that the best way of knowing the inwardness of our neighbors is to know ourselves.
Lippmann, Walter

36.
Knowledge of the world in only to be acquired in the world, and not in a closet.
Chesterfield, Lord

37.
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

38.
Some students drink at the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.

39.
When you cease to strive to understand, then you will know without understanding.
Proverb, Chinese

40.
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)

41.
To know is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.
Confucius

42.
Knowledge without education is but armed injustice.
Horace

43.
All knowledge is ambiguous.
Habgood, J. S.

44.
How do you know so much about everything? was asked of a very wise and intelligent man; and the answer was By never being afraid or ashamed to ask questions as to anything of which I was ignorant.
Abbott, John

45.
To know the right means of getting something done is virtually to have done it.
Caine, Mark

46.
The self-explorer, whether he wants to or not, becomes the explorer of everything else. He learns to see himself, but suddenly, provided he was honest, all the rest appears, and it is as rich as he was, and, as a final crowning, richer.
Canetti, Elias

47.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. [John 8:32]
Bible

48.
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.
Confucius

49.
Knowledge is the treasure, but judgment is the treasurer of the one who is wise.
Penn, William

50.
He knows so little and knows it so fluently.
Glasgow, Ellen
