Knowledge Quotes A-Z by Author - Page 2
Economic development over the past two centuries
has taken most of humanity from lives that
were brutal, ignorant and short, to personal
health and security, material comfort and
knowledge that were unknown to the elites
of the wealthiest and most powerful societies
in earlier times.
Garnaut - World
Every climate scientist has his or her own
views on some issues that differ from the
mainstream in detail. But the broad findings
of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change) have general support amongst
scientists with relevant specialist expertise.
The broad wisdom of the IPCC is strongly
contested by a small number, and a small
minority, of reputed climate scientists.
It is not contested by the large majority
of specialists, and by the leaders of the
relevant learned academies in the countries
of great scientific accomplishment.
Garnaut - Climate
Change - Ignorance
It has been my experience that competency
in mathematics, both in numerical manipulations
and in understanding its conceptual foundations,
enhances a person's ability to handle the
more ambiguous and qualitative relationships
that dominate our day-to-day financial decision-making
Any informed borrower is simply less vulnerable
to fraud and abuse
you will soon learn, as I did, the importance of a solid foundation in the basics
of education--literacy, both verbal and numerical, and communication skills.
Greenspan - Success
I was a good amateur but only an average professional. I soon realized
that there was a limit to how far I could rise in the music business, so I left
the band and enrolled at New York University.
I feel I'm able to serve my customer by
knowing what she or he wants. One of the
ways I'm able to do this is through my website,
and email: people give me great ideas, tell
me what they want, what they don't want.
It's really instrumental, and helps me stay
in touch with people.
Ireland - Customers
The mission statement of my company, Kathy
Ireland Worldwide, is to find solutions
for families, especially busy moms. I'm
reaching out to busy moms because that's
what I am. That's what I know, and I know
this woman has been underserved.
Ireland - Customers
What a relief it was to discover that I
wasnt realy an idiot! I simply had a learning
H. Johnson - Learning
It is in applied psychology, if anywhere,
that today we should be modest and grant
validity to a number of apparently contradictory
opinions; for we are still far from having
anything like a thorough knowledge of the
human psyche, that most challenging field
of scientific enquiry. For the present we
have merely more or less plausible opinions
that defy reconciliation. (1933)
Jung - Psychology
It was my teacher's genius, her quick sympathy,
her loving tact which made the first years
of my education so beautiful. It was because
she seized the right moment to impart knowledge
that made it so pleasant and acceptable
Keller - Encouragement
Have you ever been at sea in a dense fog, when it seemed as if a tangible
white darkness shut you in, and the great ship, tense and anxious, groped her
way toward the shore with plummet and sounding-line, and you waited with beating
heart for something to happen? I was like that ship before my education began,
only I was without compass or sounding-line, and had no way of knowing how near
the harbour was.
Keller - Challenges
Men often hate each other because they fear
each other; they fear each other because
they don't know each other; they don't know
each other because they can not communicate;
they can not communicate because they are
Luther King Jr - Hate
Academic qualifications are important and
so is financial education. They're both
important and schools are forgetting one
Kiyosaki - Knowledge
Money is kind of a base subject. Like water,
food, air and housing, it affects everything
yet for some reason the world of academics
thinks it's a subject below their social
Kiyosaki - Money
We go to school to learn to work hard for
money. I write books and create products
that teach people how to have money work
hard for them.
Kiyosaki - Money
We have to make education a priority, but
all this debate about education and testing
is almost beside the point. We only spend
a fraction of the money on education that
we spend on arms buildups. Under a Kucinich
administration, education becomes one of
the top domestic priorities. We put money
into it. We cause the government to be vitally
involved in it. And we make sure our children
have the love of knowledge.
Kucinich - Government
A good head and a good heart are always
a formidable combination.
Mandela - Good
Take the attitude of a student, never be
too big to ask questions, never know too
much to learn something new.
Mandino - Attitude
The technology at the leading edge changes
so rapidly that you have to keep current
after you get out of school. I think probably
the most important thing is having good
Moore - Learning

from an industrial into a knowledge-based
society, and into a society that wants to
live in harmony with nature.
Mori - Real
Estate - Society
If you have competence, you pretty much
know its boundaries already. To ask the
question (of whether you are past the boundary)
is to answer it.
Munger - Knowledge
I agree completely with my son James when
he says 'Internet is like electricity. The
latter lights up everything, while the former
lights up knowledge'.
Packer - Internet
Basically, our goal is to organize the world's
information and to make it universally accessible
Page - Internet

to do, but few people actually do what they
know. Knowing is not enough! You must take
Robbins - Life
Simply making consistent investments in
our self-education and knowledge banks pays
major dividends throughout our lives.
Rohn - Investing
The highest knowledge is to know that we
are surrounded by mystery. Neither knowledge
nor hope for the future can be the pivot
of our life or determine its direction.
It is intended to be solely determined by
our allowing ourselves to be gripped by
the ethical God, who reveals Himself in
us, and by our yielding our will to His.
Schweitzer - Spiritual
We are approaching a new age of synthesis.
Knowledge cannot be merely a degree or a
skill.. it demands a broader vision, capabilities
in critical thinking and logical deduction
without which we cannot have constructive
Ka Shing - Knowledge
If you know your strength it never becomes
a weakness. If the market knows your strength
then it becomes a weakness.
Singh - Strength
If we become increasingly humble about how
little we know, we may be more eager to
Humility about how little I know has encouraged
me to listen more carefully and more wisely.
The present moment has always been available
to spiritual seekers, but as long as you
are seeking you are not available to the
present moment. "Seeking" implies
that you are looking to the future for some
answer, or for some achievement, spiritual
or otherwise. Everybody is in the seeking
mode, seeking to add something to who they
are, whether it be money, relationships,
possessions, knowledge, status.. or spiritual

work and to their lives will be the movers
and shakers in our society for the indefinite

a way that you contribute value for which
customers are going to pay.
Tracy - Earning
You can't know it all. No matter how smart you are, no matter how comprehensive
your education, no matter how wide ranging your experience, there is simply no
way to acquire all the wisdom you need to make your business thrive.
Trump - Learning
Know the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred
battles you will never peril.
Tzu - Knowledge
Awareness - Enemy
It is said that if you know your enemies
and know yourself, you will not be imperiled
in a hundred battles; if you do not know
your enemies but do know yourself, you will
win one and lose one; if you do not know
your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled
in every single battle.
Tzu - Winning
