Knowledge Quotes

Knowledge without Spirit is like finding yourself on a cold night with all the wood in the world and having no flame with which to ignite it.

Guy Finley

There are three signs of a knowledgeable person: knowledge, forbearance and silence.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

All men by nature desire knowledge...

Aristotle

Inspiration is a slender river of brightness leaping from a vast and eternal knowledge, it exceeds reason more perfectly than reason exceeds the knowledge of the senses.

Sri Aurobindo

Knowledge is that possession that no misfortune can destroy, no authority can revoke, and no enemy can control. This makes knowledge the greatest of all freedoms.

Bryant McGill

We do need knowledge. And perhaps in a thousand years we might pick smaller cliffs to jump off. The books are to remind us what asses and fools we are.

Ray Douglas Bradbury

The actual state of our knowledge is always provisional and ... there must be, beyond what is actually known, immense new regions to discover.

Louis de Broglie

In art, never try to find out anything, or try to learn anything until the not knowing it has come to be a nuisance to you for some time. Then you will remember it, but not otherwise. Let knowledge importune you before you will hear it. Our schools and universities go on the precisely opposite system.

Samuel Butler

People get a lot of confusion, because they keep trying to think of quantum mechanics as classical mechanics

Sidney Coleman

During the act of knowledge itself, the objective and subjective are so instantly united, that we cannot determine to which of the two the priority belongs.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Because psychologists have been able to discover, exactly as in a slow-motion picture, the way the human creature acquires knowledge and habits, the normal child has been vastly helped by what the retarded have taught us.

Pearl Sydenstricker Buck

You see only the productions of second-rate folk who are in a hurry to get wealth and fame. The true knowledge, the deadly knowledge, is still kept secret. But, believe me, my friend, it is there.

John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir

There is nothing less powerful than knowledge unattached, and incapable of application. That is why what little knowledge I have has done myself personally so much harm. I do not know much, but if I knew a good deal less than that little I should be far more powerful.

Samuel Butler

That the threat is now intense is not a reason to abandon our quest for knowledge. It is a reason to hold it more tightly, in spite of the need for action to preserve our freedom, in spite of the distractions of living in turmoil, that it may not be lost or brushed aside by the demands of the hour. We would not neglect our duty to our country and our fellows to strive mightily to preserve our ways and our lives. There is an added duty, not inconsistent, not less. It is the duty to so live that there may be a reason for living, beyond the mere mechanisms of life. It is the duty to carry on, under stress, the search for understanding.

Vannevar Bush

Grace is given of God, but knowledge is bought in the market; Knowledge needful for all, yet cannot be had for the asking.

Arthur Hugh Clough
