knowledge

A Quote by Ayn Rand on direction, dissent, integrity, judgment, knowledge, mind, modesty, reality, thinking, and truth

No matter how vast your knowledge or how modest, it is your own mind that has to acquire it. It is only with your own knowledge that you can deal. It is only your own knowledge that you can claim to possess or ask others to consider. Your mind is your only judge of truth - and if others dissent from your verdict, reality is the court of final appeal. Nothing but a man's mind can perform that complex, delicate, crucial process of identification which is thinking. Nothing can direct the process but his own judgment. Nothing can direct his judgment but his moral integrity.

A Quote by Ayn Rand on future and knowledge

Don't rely on our knowledge of what's best for your future. We do know, but it can't be best until you know it.

A Quote by Austin Farrar on charity, common sense, death, fanaticism, kindness, knowledge, life, peace, power, religion, virtue, and wisdom

'Knowledge, without common sense,' says Lee, is 'folly; without method, it is waste; without kindness, it is fanaticism; without religion, it is death.' But with common sense, it is wisdom with method, it is power; with charity, it is beneficence; with religion, it is virtue, and life, and peace.

A Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer on disorder, knowledge, libraries, thought, and value

As the biggest library if it is in disorder is not as useful as a small but well-arranged one, so you may accumulate a vast amount of knowledge but it will be of far less value than a much smaller amount if you have not thought it over for yourself.

A Quote by Aristotle on action, good, kindness, knowledge, order, problems, purpose, reason, study, present, and virtue

The purpose of the present study is not as it is in other inquiries, the attainment of knowledge, we are not conducting this inquiry in order to know what virtue is, but in order to become good, else there would be no advantage in studying it. For that reason, it becomes necessary to examine the problem of our actions and to ask how they are to be performed. For as we have said, the actions determine what kind of characteristics are developed.

A Quote by Aristotle on aim, influence, knowledge, life, end, archer, sciences, capactity, and object

If there is some end of the things we do . . . will not the knowledge of it, then, have a great influence on life? Shall we not, like archers who have a mark to aim at, be more likely to hit upon what we should? If so, we must try, in outline at least, to determine what it is, and of which of the sciences or capacities it is the object.
