Quotations
Quote of the Day

Knowledge is not simply another commodity. On the contrary. Knowledge is never used up. It increases by diffusion and grows by dispersion.
View quotes by Daniel Boorstin

Knowledge of the self is the mother of all knowledge. So it is incumbent on me to know my self, to know it completely, to know its minutiae, its characteristics, its subtleties, and its very atoms.
View quotes by Kahlil Gibran

Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.
View quotes by James Madison

If knowledge is power, clandestine knowledge is power squared; it can be withheld, exchanged, and leveraged.
View quotes by Letty Cottin

From the level of pragmatic, everyday knowledge to modern natural science, the knowledge of nature derives from man's primary coming to grips with nature; at the same time it reacts back upon the system of social labour and stimulates its development.
View quotes by Jurgen Habermas

Sorrow is knowledge, those that know the most must mourn the deepest, the tree of knowledge is not the tree of life.

View quotes by Lord Byron

The senses collect the surface facts of matter... It was sensation; when memory came, it was experience; when mind acted, it was knowledge; when mind acted on it as knowledge, it was thought.

View quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson

I ask you to look both ways. For the road to a knowledge of the stars leads through the atom; and important knowledge of the atom has been reached through the stars.
View quotes by Sir Arthur Eddington

It is now several months since I promised to give you my reasons for preferring the Bible as a schoolbook to all other compositions. Before I state my arguments, I shall assume the five following propositions:

1 . That Christianity is the only true and perfect religion; and that in proportion as mankind adopts its principles and obeys its precepts they will be wise and happy.

2. That a better knowledge of this religion is to be acquired by reading the Bible than in any other way.

3. That the Bible contains more knowledge necessary to man in his present state than any other book in the world.

4. That knowledge is most durable, and religious instruction most useful, when imparted in early life.

5. That the Bible, when not read in schools, is seldom read in any subsequent period of life.
- Benjamin Rush, Essays, pp. 93-113, 'A Defence of the Use of the Bible as a School Book'.

Courage is a special kind of knowledge: the knowledge of how to fear what ought to be feared and how not to fear what ought no to be feared.
View quotes by David Ben-Gurion

Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.
View quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Zeal will do more than knowledge.
View quotes by William Hazlitt

I have taken all knowledge to be my province.
View quotes by Francis Bacon

In much knowledge there is also much grief.
View quotes by Queen Marie Of Romania

Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
View quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

To know what you know and what you do not know, that is true knowledge.
View quotes by Kong Fu Zi

Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice.
View quotes by Anton Chekhov

Is knowledge knowable? If not, how do we know this?
View quotes by Woody Allen

To know that we know what we know, and to know that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge.
View quotes by Nicolas Copernicus

Those who have knowledge, don't predict. Those who predict, don't have knowledge.
View quotes by Lao Tzu
