A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on authenticity, love, truth, knowledge, ambition, wisdom, change, fear, desire success, and seriousness

You haven't changed. You may say: 'I'm full of love, I'm full of truth, I'm full of knowledge, I'm full of wisdom.' I say: 'That's all nonsense. Do you behave? Are you free of fear? Are you free of ambition, greed, envy and the desire to achieve success in every field? If not, you are just playing a game. You are not serious.'

J. Krishnamurti (1895 - 1986)

A Quote by David Berman on principle, words, knowledge, and consequence

Unless we take care to clear the first principles of knowledge from the incumbrance and delusion of words, we may make infinite reasonings upon them to no purpose. We may deduce consequences, and never be the wiser.

A Quote by David Berman on sight, knowledge, perception, and sense

Suppose one who had always continued blind be told by his guide that after he has advanced so many steps he shall come to the brink of a precipice, or be stopped by a wall; must not this to him seem very admirable and surprising? He cannot conceive how it is possible for mortals to frame such predictions as these, which to him would seem as strange and unaccountable as prophesy doth to others. Even they who are blessed with the visive faculty may (though familiarity make it less observed) find therein sufficient cause of admiration.

A Quote by Scott Raymond Adams on ignorance and knowledge

One of the great things about being ignorant is that I often think my ideas are original. It’s a wonderful feeling. That’s why I try to avoid any knowledge that would spoil the sensation. Sometimes it isn’t easy. People keep hurling knowledge at me, and I can’t always duck.

The more things I learn the worse it gets. Knowledge might be power, but knowledge can quickly become a brain gone crazy.
