knowledge quotes

#93 Albert Einstein

When I examine myself and my methods of thought I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about knowledge
#312 Albert Einstein

This is the reason why all attempts to obtain a deeper knowledge of the foundations of physics seem doomed to me unless the basic concepts are in accordance with general relativity from the beginning. This situation makes it difficult to use our empirical knowledge, however comprehensive, in looking for the fundamental concepts and relations of physics, and it forces us to apply free speculation to a much greater extent than is presently assumed by most physicists. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about knowledge
#316 Albert Einstein

This freedom of communication is indispensable for the development and extension of scientific knowledge, a consideration of much practical import. In the first instance it must be guaranteed by law. But laws alone cannot secure freedom of expression; in order that every man may present his views without penalty there must be a spirit of tolerance in the entire population. Such an ideal of external liberty can never be fully attained but must be sought unremittingly if scientific thought, and philosophical and creative thinking in general, are to be advanced as far as possible. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about knowledge
#380 Albert Einstein

Science is never finished because the human mind only uses a small portion of its capacity, and man's exploration of his world is also limited. If we look at this tree outside whose roots search beneath the pavement for water, or a flower which sends its sweet smell to the pollinating bees, or even our own selves and the inner forces that drive us to act, we can see that we all dance to a mysterious tune, and the piper who plays this melody from an inscrutable distance—whatever name we give him—Creative Force, or God—escapes all book knowledge. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about knowledge
#433 Albert Einstein

Scientific research is based on the assumption that all events, including the actions of mankind, are determined by the laws of nature. Therefore, a research scientist will hardly be inclined to believe that events could be influenced by a prayer, that is, by a wish addressed to a supernatural Being. However, we have to admit that our actual knowledge of these laws is only an incomplete piece of work (unvollkommenes St .

Albert Einstein Quotes about knowledge
#438 Albert Einstein

It seems to me that the idea of a personal God is an anthropomorphic concept which I cannot take seriously. I feel also not able to imagine some will or goal outside the human sphere. My views are near to those of Spinoza: admiration for the beauty of and belief in the logical simplicity of the order and harmony which we can grasp humbly and only imperfectly. I believe that we have to content ourselves with our imperfect knowledge and understanding and treat values and moral obligations as a purely human problem—the most important of all human problems. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about knowledge
#1204 Bertrand Russell

The degree of one's emotion varies inversely with one's knowledge of the facts – the less you know the hotter you get. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about knowledge
#1241 Bertrand Russell

Is there any knowledge in the world which is so certain that no reasonable man could doubt it? .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about knowledge
#1371 Bertrand Russell

There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about knowledge
#1402 Bertrand Russell

Science may set limits to knowledge, but should not set limits to imagination. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about knowledge
#1445 Bertrand Russell

It is not by prayer and humility that you cause things to go as you wish, but by acquiring a knowledge of natural laws. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about knowledge
#1617 Oscar Wilde

Relations are simply a tedious pack of people, who haven’t got the remotest knowledge of how to live, nor the smallest instinct about when to die. .

Oscar Wilde Quotes about knowledge
#1771 Jean Paul Sartre

Absurd, irreducible; nothing — not even a profound and secret delirium of nature — could explain it. Obviously I did not know everything, I had not seen the seeds sprout, or the tree grow. But faced with this great wrinkled paw, neither ignorance nor knowledge was important: the world of explanations and reasons is not the world of existence. A circle is not absurd, it is clearly explained by the rotation of a straight segment around one of its extremities. But neither does a circle exist. This root, on the other hand, existed in such a way that I could not explain it. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about knowledge
#1967 Ambrose Bierce

Faith, n. Belief without evidence in what is told by one who speaks without knowledge, of things without parallel. .

Ambrose Bierce Quotes about knowledge
#2001 Ambrose Bierce

Past, n. That part of Eternity with some small fraction of which we have a slight and regrettable acquaintance. A moving line called the Present parts it from an imaginary period known as the Future. These two grand divisions of Eternity, of which the one is continually effacing the other, are entirely unlike. The one is dark with sorrow and disappointment, the other bright with prosperity and joy. The Past is the region of sobs, the Future is the realm of song. In the one crouches Memory, clad in sackcloth and ashes, mumbling penitential prayer; in the sunshine of the other Hope flies with a free wing, beckoning to temples of success and bowers of ease. Yet the Past is the Future of yesterday, the Future is the Past of to-morrow. They are one--the knowledge and the dream. .

Ambrose Bierce Quotes about knowledge
#2901 Napoleon I of France

In civil war it is not given to every man to know how to conduct himself. There is something more than military prudence necessary; there is need of sagacity and the knowledge of men. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about knowledge
#2916 Napoleon I of France

The general of the sea has need of only one science, that of navigation. The one on land has need of all, or of a talent which is the equivalent of all, that will enable him to profit by all experience, and all knowledge. A general of the sea has nothing to divine. He knows where his enemy is, he knows his strength. A general on land never knows anything with certainty, never sees his enemy well, and never knows positively where he is. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about knowledge
#2940 Henrik Ibsen

There are three Empires. First there is the Empire which was founded on the tree of knowledge. Then there is the Empire founded on the tree of the Cross. The third is still a secret Empire which will be founded on the tree of knowledge and the tree of the Cross — brought together. .

Henrik Ibsen Quotes about knowledge
#3540 Douglas Adams

You made us what you would not dare to be yourselves. Yet you will not acknowledge us. .

Douglas Adams Quotes about knowledge
#3843 Francis Bacon

Alland wonder (which is the seed of knowledge) is an impression of pleasure in itself. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about knowledge
#3847 Francis Bacon

For alland wonder (which is the seed of knowledge) is an impression of pleasure in itself. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about knowledge
#3852 Francis Bacon

It is manifest that there is no danger at all in the proportion or quantity of knowledge, how large soever, lest it should make it swell or out-compass itself; no, but it is merely the quality of knowledge, which, be it in quantity more or less, if it be taken without the true corrective thereof, hath in it some nature of venom or malignity, and some effects of that venom, which is ventosity or swelling. This corrective spice, the mixture whereof maketh knowledge so sovereign, is charity, which the Apostle immediately addeth to the former clause; for so he saith, “Knowledge bloweth up, but charity buildeth up”. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about knowledge
#3876 Francis Bacon

Human knowledge and human power meet in one; for where the cause is not known the effect cannot be produced. Nature to be commanded must be obeyed... .

Francis Bacon Quotes about knowledge
#3885 Francis Bacon

Human knowledge and human power meet in one; for where the cause is not known the effect cannot be produced. Nature to be commanded must be obeyed; and that which in contemplation is as the cause is in operation as the rule. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about knowledge
#3910 Francis Bacon

No one has yet been found so firm of mind and purpose as resolutely to compel himself to sweep away all theories and common notions, and to apply the understanding, thus made fair and even, to a fresh examination of particulars. Thus it happens that human knowledge, as we have it, is a mere medley and ill-digested mass, made up of much credulity and much accident, and also of the childish notions which we at first imbibed. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about knowledge
#3919 Francis Bacon

To God, truly, the Giver and Architect of Forms, and it may be to the angels and higher intelligences, it belongs to have an affirmative knowledge of forms immediately, and from the first contemplation. But this assuredly is more than man can do, to whom it is granted only to proceed at first by negatives, and at last to end in affirmatives, after exclusion has been exhausted. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about knowledge
#3982 Francis Bacon

The desire of power in excess caused the angels to fall; the desire of knowledge in excess caused man to fall. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about knowledge
#4358 Confucius

The way which the superior man pursues, reaches wide and far, and yet is secret. Common men and women, however ignorant, may intermeddle with the knowledge of it; yet in its utmost reaches, there is that which even the sage does not know. .

Confucius Quotes about knowledge
#4373 Confucius

The way which the superior man pursues, reaches wide and far, and yet is secret. Common men and women, however ignorant, may intermeddle with the knowledge of it; yet in its utmost reaches, there is that which even the sage does not know. Common men and women, however much below the ordinary standard of character, can carry it into practice; yet in its utmost reaches, there is that which even the sage is not able to carry into practice. Great as heaven and earth are, men still find some things in them with which to be dissatisfied. Thus it is that, were the superior man to speak of his way in all its greatness, nothing in the world would be found able to embrace it, and were he to speak of it in its minuteness, nothing in the world would be found able to split it. .

Confucius Quotes about knowledge
#4386 Confucius

To be fond of learning is to be near to knowledge. To practice with vigor is to be near to magnanimity. To possess the feeling of shame is to be near to energy. .

Confucius Quotes about knowledge
#4400 Confucius

The superior man honors his virtuous nature, and maintains constant inquiry and study, seeking to carry it out to its breadth and greatness, so as to omit none of the more exquisite and minute points which it embraces, and to raise it to its greatest height and brilliancy, so as to pursue the course of the Mean. He cherishes his old knowledge, and is continually acquiring new. He exerts an honest, generous earnestness, in the esteem and practice of all propriety. Thus, when occupying a high situation he is not proud, and in a low situation he is not insubordinate. When the kingdom is well governed, he is sure by his words to rise; and when it is ill governed, he is sure by his silence to command forbearance to himself. .

Confucius Quotes about knowledge
#4404 Confucius

It is only he, possessed of all sagely qualities that can exist under heaven, who shows himself quick in apprehension, clear in discernment, of far-reaching intelligence, and all-embracing knowledge, fitted to exercise rule; magnanimous, generous, benign, and mild, fitted to exercise forbearance; impulsive, energetic, firm, and enduring, fitted to maintain a firm hold; self-adjusted, grave, never swerving from the Mean, and correct, fitted to command reverence; accomplished, distinctive, concentrative, and searching, fitted to exercise discrimination. All-embracing is he and vast, deep and active as a fountain, sending forth in their due season his virtues. All-embracing and vast, he is like Heaven. Deep and active as a fountain, he is like the abyss. He is seen, and the people all reverence him; he speaks, and the people all believe him; he acts, and the people all are pleased with him. .

Confucius Quotes about knowledge
#4405 Confucius

It is only the individual possessed of the most entire sincerity that can exist under Heaven, who can adjust the great invariable relations of mankind, establish the great fundamental virtues of humanity, and know the transforming and nurturing operations of Heaven and Earth; — shall this individual have any being or anything beyond himself on which he depends? Call him man in his ideal, how earnest is he! Call him an abyss, how deep is he! Call him Heaven, how vast is he! Who can know him, but he who is indeed quick in apprehension, clear in discernment, of far-reaching intelligence, and all-embracing knowledge, possessing all Heavenly virtue? .

Confucius Quotes about knowledge
#4610 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Those who are esteemed umpires of taste are often persons who have acquired some knowledge of admired pictures or sculptures, and have an inclination for whatever is elegant; but if you inquire whether they are beautiful souls, and whether their own acts are like fair pictures, you learn that they are selfish and sensual. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about knowledge
#4751 Ralph Waldo Emerson

There is no knowledge that is not power. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about knowledge
#4945 Dwight D. Eisenhower

The work of Dr.is in the highest tradition of selfless and dedicated medical research. He has provided a means for the control of a dread disease. By helping scientists in other countries with technical information; by offering to them the strains of seed virus and professional aid so that the production of vaccine can be started by them everywhere; by welcoming them to his laboratory that they may gain a fuller knowledge, Dr. Salk is a benefactor of mankind. His achievement, a credit to our entire scientific community, does honor to all the people of the United States. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about knowledge
#4997 Dwight D. Eisenhower

I am convinced that the French could not win the war because the internal political situation in Vietnam, weak and confused, badly weakened their military position. I have never talked or corresponded with a person knowledgeable in Indochinese affairs who did not agree that had elections been held as of the time of the fighting, possibly 80 per cent of the population would have voted for the Communistas their leader rather than Chief of State . Indeed, the lack of leadership and drive on the part of Bao Dai was a factor in the feeling prevalent among Vietnamese that they had nothing to fight for. As one Frenchman said to me, "What Vietnam needs is another , regardless of all the difficulties the presence of such a personality would entail. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about knowledge
#5004 Dwight D. Eisenhower

It is my personal conviction that almost any one of the newborn states of the world would far rather embrace Communism or any other form of dictatorship than acknowledge the political domination of another government, even though that brought to each citizen a far higher standard of living. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about knowledge
#5107 Mark Twain

He is a stranger to me, but he is a most remarkable man — and I am the other one. Between us, we cover all knowledge; he knows all that can be known, and I know the rest. .

Mark Twain Quotes about knowledge
#5123 Mark Twain

Always acknowledge a fault frankly. This will throw those in authority off their guard and give you opportunity to commit more. .

Mark Twain Quotes about knowledge
#5994 Robert H. Jackson

As to ethics, the parties seem to me as much on a parity as the pot and the kettle. But want of knowledge or innocent intent is not ordinarily available to diminish patent protection. .

Robert H. Jackson Quotes about knowledge
#6026 Robert H. Jackson

The duty to disclose knowledge of crime rests upon all citizens. .

Robert H. Jackson Quotes about knowledge
#6084 Pierre Trudeau

The past is to be respected and acknowledged, but not to be worshipped. It is our future in which we will find our greatness. .

Pierre Trudeau Quotes about knowledge
#6111 Pierre Trudeau

What is wonderful about a university likeis that you not only receive teaching of very high quality, you also learn where to find the knowledge you are seeking. And you make unexpected discoveries;it was a Marxist professor who introduced me to the work of , a great master of English prose as well as theology. .

Pierre Trudeau Quotes about knowledge
#6151 Clarence Darrow

Had the modern professors of eugenics had power in France in 1694, they probably would not have permitted such a child to have been born. Their scientific knowledge would have shown conclusively that no person of value could have come from the union of his father and mother. In those days, nature had not been instructed by the professors of eugenics and so Voltaire was born. .

Clarence Darrow Quotes about knowledge
#6277 Henry David Thoreau

We are as much as we see. Faith is sight and knowledge. The hands only serve the eyes. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about knowledge
#6624 William Ellery Channing

We need not war to awaken human energy. There is at least equal scope for courage and magnanimity in blessing, as in destroying mankind. The condition of the human race offers inexhaustible objects for enterprise, and fortitude, and magnanimity. In relieving the countless wants and sorrows of the world, in exploring unknown regions, in carrying the arts and virtues of civilization to unimproved communities, in extending the bounds of knowledge, in diffusing the spirit of freedom, and especially in spreading the light and influence of Christianity, how much may be dared, how much endured! .

William Ellery Channing Quotes about knowledge
#6693 Maurice Wilkes

A source of strength in the early days was that groups in various parts of the world were prepared to construct experimental computers without necessarily intending them to be the prototype for serial production. As a result, there became available a body of knowledge about what would work and what would not work. .

Maurice Wilkes Quotes about knowledge
#6824 Adlai Stevenson

If we value the pursuit of knowledge, we must be free to follow wherever that search may lead us. The free mind is not a barking dog, to be tethered on a ten-foot chain. .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about knowledge
#6886 Adlai Stevenson

Our prayer is that men everywhere will learn, finally, to live as brothers, to respect each other's differences, to heal each other's wounds, to promote each other's progress, and to benefit from each other's knowledge. .
