Smart Quotes

He who is in love is wise and is becoming wiser, sees newly every time he looks at the object beloved, drawing from it with his eyes and his mind those virtues which it possesses.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge.
Enrico Fermi
Americans who had traveled in Europe knew the 'free' European peasants suffered considerably greater oppression and misery than did American bondsman. Modern scholarship has shown that the exploitation rate -- the percentage of the worker's production that was taken from him by his owners -- was lower among the slaves than among European peasants, that work loads were light, and that slaves actually experienced a considerable measure of personal freedom.
Forest McDonald
The Queen Mother, with a lifetime's popularity, seemed incapable of a bad performance as national grandmother-warm, smiling, human, understanding, she embodied everything the public could want of its grandmother.
John Pearson
Most people live, whether physically, intellectually or morally, in a very restricted circle of their potential being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul's resources in general, much like a man who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into a habit of using and moving only his lttle finger. Great emergencies and crises show us how much greater our vital resources are than we had supposed.
William James
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
The only difference between a problem and a solution is that people understand the solution.
Charles Franklin Kettering
People don't understand the virtue of time, until their clock stops ticking.
Steve Goodman
Knowledge must be gained by ourselves. Mankind may supply us with the facts but the results, even if they agree with previous ones, must be the work of our mind.
Benjamin Disraeli
Ricky Let's drop it. Let's ecks-nay on the becks-nay. Ig-pay atlin-lay.

Made
He said that there was one only good, namely, knowledge and one only evil, namely, ignorance.
Laertius Diogenes
If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.
Henry Ford
Nobody understands anyone 18, including those who are 18.
Jim
We understand death for the first time when he puts his hand upon one whom we love.
Baronne Anne Louise Germaine Necker de Stal Stal
It is the province of knowledge to speak, It is the privledge of wisdom to listen.
Christine Lane
Knowledge without know-how is sterile. We use the word 'academic' in a pejorative sense to identify this limitation.
Myron Tribus
