knowledge Quotes

Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.

Carl Sagan

Science is the knowledge of consequences, and dependence of one fact upon another.

Thomas Hobbes

You can acquire a lot of knowledge without ever going to school.

William Glasser

Scholarship has yielded to the irresistible pull that science exerts on our minds by its self-confidence and the promise of certified knowledge. But, to repeat, the objects of culture are not analyzable, not graspable by the geometric mind. Great works of art are great by virtue of being syntheses of the world; they qualify as art by fusing form and contents into an indivisible whole; what they offer is not "discourse about," nor a cipher to be decoded, but a prolonged incitement to finesse. So it is paradoxical that our way of introducing young minds to such works should be the way of scholarship.

Jacques Barzun

The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance.

Diogenes Laertius

It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.

Albert Einstein

In a battle all you need to make you fight is a little hot blood and the knowledge that it's more dangerous to lose than to win

George Bernard Shaw

The value and rank of a learned man is more than his knowledge.

al-Hadi, Ali

Discussion is an exchange of knowledge; argument is an exchange of ignorance.

Unknown

He that hath knowledge spareth his words.

Francis Bacon, Sr.

Where all is but dream, reasoning and arguments are of no use, truth and knowledge nothing

John Locke

A lawyer without history or literature is a mechanic, a mere working mason; if he possesses some knowledge of these, he may venture to call himself an architect.

Sir Walter Scott

Consciously or unconsciously, directly or indirectly, each and every creature, each and every human being in one form or the other strives to assert individuality. But when eventually man consciously experiences that he is Infinite, Eternal and Indivisible, then he is fully conscious of his individuality as God, and as such experiences Infinite Knowledge, Infinite Power and Infinite Bliss.

Meher Baba

Each of us in our own way can try to spread compassion into peopleís hearts. Western civilizations these days place great importance on filling the human 'brain' with knowledge, but no one seems to care about filling the human 'heart' with compassion. This is what the real role of religion is.

Dalai Lama

knowledge is hidden by selfish desire - hidden by this unquenchable fire for self-satisfaction.

Bhagavad-Gita

It is the province of knowledge to speak, and it is the privilege of wisdom to listen.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Illness is the doctor to whom we pay most heed; to kindness, to knowledge, we make promise only; pain we obey.

Marcel Proust

Widely dispersed knowledge concerning the important role of basic cooperative processes among living beings may lead to the acceptance of cooperation as a guiding principle both in social theory and as a basis for human behavior. Such a development when it occurs will alter the course of human history.

Warder Clyde Allee

It is in moments of illness that we are compelled to recognize that we live not alone but chained to a creature of a different kingdom, whole worlds apart, who has no knowledge of us and by whom it is impossible to make ourselves understood: our body.

Marcel Proust

Necessity is the mother of invention, it is true, but its father is creativity, and knowledge is the midwife

Jonathan Schattke

A belief in hell and the knowledge that every ambition is doomed to frustration at the hands of a skeleton have never prevented the majority of human beings from behaving as though death were no more than an unfounded rumour.

Aldous Huxley

The torment of human frustration, whatever its immediate cause, is the knowledge that the self is in prison, its vital force and "mangled mind" leaking away in lonely, wasteful self-conflict.

Elizabeth Drew

To generalize is to be an idiot. To particularize is the alone distinction of merit. General knowledge are those knowledge that idiots possess.

William Blake

Men should take their knowledge from the Sun, the Moon and the Stars.
