I prefer tongue-tied knowledge to ignorant loquacity.
Marcus Tullius Cicero quotes
God grant that not only the love of liberty but a thorough knowledge of the rights of man may pervade all the nations of the earth, so that a philosopher may set his foot anywhere on its surface and say: "This is my country."
Benjamin Franklin quotes
Every great advance in natural knowledge has involved the absolute rejection of authority.
Thomas Henry Huxley quotes
Every mind was made for growth, for knowledge, and its nature is sinned against when it is doomed to ignorance.
William Ellery Channing quotes
If knowledge can create problems, it is not through ignorance that we can solve them.
Isaac Asimov quotes
I was bold in the pursuit of knowledge, never fearing to follow truth and reason to whatever results they led, and bearding every authority which stood in their way.
Thomas Jefferson quotes
It is impossible to make people understand their ignorance, for it requires knowledge to perceive it; and, therefore, he that can perceive it hath it not.
Jeremy Taylor quotes
True science investigates and brings to human perception such truths and such knowledge as the people of a given time and society consider most important. Art transmits these truths from the region of perception.
Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy quotes
Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful.
Samuel Johnson quotes
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Roger Babson quotes
