Minds are like parachutes -
they only function when open.
Learn to live, and live to learn,
Ignorance like a fire doth burn,
Little tasks make large return.
I can tell you, honest friend, what to believe:
believe life; it teaches better than book or orator.
And in knowing that you know nothing,
that makes you the smartest of all.
Somehow you'd manage
when you get to college,
and college is the foundation
of the building of knowledge.
The more extensive a man's knowledge of what has been done, the greater will be his power of knowing what to do.
It is impossible to defeat an ignorant man in argument.
William G. McAdoo
The great end of life is not knowledge but action.
Even a fool knows you can't touch the stars,
but it doesn't stop a wise man from trying.
Harry Anderson, "Night Court"
I find that a great part of the information I have was acquired
by looking up something and finding something else on the way.
Franklin P. Adams
True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing.
The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
