Skill to do comes of doing
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Some kind of philosophy is a necessity to all but the most thoughtless, and in the absence of knowledge it is almost sure to be a silly philosophy.
Bertrand Russell
Someday, in the distant future, our grandchildren's grandchildren will develop a new equivalent of our classrooms. They will spend many hours in front of boxes with fires glowing within. May they have the wisdom to know the difference between light and knowledge.
Plato
Suppose that we are wise enough to learn and know - and yet not wise enough to control our learning and knowledge, so that we use it to destroy ourselves? Even if that is so, knowledge remains better than ignorance.
Isaac Asimov

Abraham Maslow

Aldous Huxley
The knowledge of God is very far from the love of Him.
Blaise Pascal

Blaise Pascal
The learning and knowledge that we have, is, at the most, but little compared with that of which we are ignorant.
Plato
The little I know I owe to my ignorance.
Sacha Guitry
The more extensive a man's knowledge of what has been done, the greater will be his power of knowing what to do.
Benjamin Disraeli
The more the fruits of knowledge become accessible to men, the more widespread is the decline of religious belief
Sigmund Freud
The one exclusive sign of thorough knowledge is the power of teaching.
Aristotle
The only progress that knowledge allows is in enabling us to describe more and more in detail the world we see and its evolution. What matters in a world-view is to grasp the meaning and purpose of everything, and that we cannot do.
Albert Schweitzer
The only source of knowledge is experience
Albert Einstein
