Knowing Quotes

We are very far from always knowing our own wishes.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Half of being smart is knowing what you're dumb at.

Half of being smart is knowing what you are dumb about.

The country and the Congress were misled into war. I regret that we were not given the truth; as I said more than a year ago, knowing what we know now, I would not have gone to war in Iraq. And knowing now the full measure of the Bush AdministrationĂ­s duplicity and incompetence, I doubt there are many members of Congress who would give them the authority they abused so badly. I know I would not.

Senator John Kerry

No man should escape our universities without knowing how little he knows.

J. Robert Oppenheimer

Wilderness is an anchor to windward. Knowing it is there, we can also know that we are still a rich nation, tending our resources as we should--not a people in despair searching every last nook and cranny of our land for a board of lumber, a barrel of oil, a blade of grass, or a tank of water.

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.

Gilda Radner

Finance is a gun. Politics is knowing when to pull the trigger.

Mario Puzo

The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along
