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

Knowledge is knowing that we cannot know.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

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

Robert Quillen

How honorable is knowledge, that the one who does not have it, says he does. How dishonorable is ignorance, that the one who has it says he does not.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

Knowledge and science are the coffers and caches to the treasures of Perfection; and the only access to them is to ask and question.

Ali al-Rida

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

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

al-Hadi, Ali

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
