Smart Quotes

Zeal without knowledge is fire without light.
Thomas Fuller
His priority did not seem to be to teach them what he knew, but rather to impress upon them that nothing, not even... knowledge, was foolproof.
J. K. Rowling
You do ill if you praise, but worse if you censure, what you do not understand.
Leonardo DaVinci
Knowledge is essential to conquest only according to our ignorance are we helpless. Thought creates character. Character can dominate conditions. Will creates circumstances and environment.
Anne Besant
If you wish your merit to be known, acknowledge that of other people.
Oriental Proverb
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 35 Bible
The price one pays for pursuing any profession or calling is an intimate knowledge of its ugly side.
James Baldwin
The great end of life is not knowledge but action.
Thomas Huxley
Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficial. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well meaning but without understanding.
Louis D. Brandeis
Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.
Jalal ud-Din Rumi
Happy the man who, like Ulysses, has made a fine voyage, or has won the Golden Fleece, and then returns, experienced and knowledgeable, to spend the rest of his life among his family
Joachim du Bellay
Knowledge cultivates your seeds and does not sow in you seeds.
Kahlil Gibran
If the human mind was simple enough to understand, we'd be too simple to understand it.
Emerson Pugh
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
Albert Einstein
The Argument from Intimidation is a confession of intellectual impotence.
Ayn Rand
What I want to fix your attention on is the vast overall movement towards the discrediting, and finally the elimination, of every kind of human excellence -- moral, cultural, social or intellectual. And is it not pretty to notice how 'democracy' (in the incantatory sense) is now doing for us the work that was once done by the most ancient dictatorships, and by the same methods The basic proposal of the new education is to be that dunces and idlers must not be made to feel inferior to intelligent and industrious pupils. That would be 'undemocratic.' Children who are fit to proceed may be artificially kept back, because the others would get a trauma by being left behind. The bright pupil thus remains democratically fettered to his own age group throughout his school career, and a boy who would be capable of tackling Aeschylus or Dante sits listening to his coeval's attempts to spell out A CAT SAT ON A MAT. We may reasonably hope for the virtual abolition of education when 'I'm as good as you' has fully had its way. All incentives to learn and all penalties for not learning will vanish. The few who might want to learn will be prevented who are they to overtop their fellows And anyway, the teachers -- or should I say nurses -- will be far too busy reassuring the dunces and patting them on the back to waste any time on real teaching. We shall no longer have to plan and toil to spread imperturbable conceit and incurable ignorance among men.
Clive Staples Lewis
