Where is wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
T.S. Eliot quotes
The small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify we give the name of knowledge.
Ambrose Bierce quotes
To wisdom belongs the intellectual apprehension of things eternal; to knowledge, the rational apprehension of things temporal.
Saint Augustine quotes
There are three principal means of acquiring knowledge. . . observation of nature, reflection, and experimentation. Observation collects facts; reflection combines them; experimentation verifies the result of that combination.
Denis Diderot quotes
True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing.
Management means, in the last analysis, the substitution of thought for brawn and muscle, of knowledge for folklore and superstition, and of cooperation for force. . .
Peter F. Drucker quotes
Every extension of knowledge arises from making the conscious the unconscious.
Friedrich Nietzsche quotes
No man's knowledge here can go beyond his experience.
John Locke quotes
The essence of knowledge is, having it, to apply it; not having it, to confess your ignorance.
I have observed that the world has suffered far less from ignorance than from pretensions to knowledge. It is not skeptics or explorers but fanatics and ideologues who menace decency and progress. No agnostic ever burned anyone at the stake or tortured a pagan, a heretic, or an unbeliever.
Daniel Boorstin quotes
