Knowing - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

Knowing you goes down as easily the best thing that`s ever happened to me. Easily. If I were a restaurant, you`d be my special but nobody could order you because I`d just want you to be mine, just all mine.

Comet (movie)

Knowing how to think empowers you far beyond those who know only what to think.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

It is better to live in ignorance than with knowledge. Solving the problem is the exciting part, not knowing the answer. Once a conjuring trick is explained it loses its magic. The excitement of a game of football is in not knowing who is going to be the winner. Some people have success and rest on their laurels. The lucky ones continue to live in ignorance.

Paul Arden

The worst part is not the dying, it`s not knowing when or how.

George R. R. Martin

One of the most important gifts we can give our children is the confidence to say "I don`t know." It`s the foundation from which we begin our investigation of the world: asking questions, taking the necessary time to understand the answers, and searching for new answers when the ones we have in hand don`t seem to work. The feeling of not knowing is also the source of wonder and awe.

Annaka Harris

We live in a society where people are uncomfortable with not knowing. Children aren`t taught to say "I don`t know," and honesty in this form is rarely modeled for them. They too often see adults avoiding questions and fabricating answers, out of either embarrassment or fear, and this comes at a price. When children are embarrassed by or afraid of the feeling of not knowing, they are preoccupied with escaping their discomfort, rather than being motivated to learn. This robs them of the joy of curiosity. Let`s celebrate the feelings of awe and wonder in our children, as the foundation for all learning. Let`s teach children to say "I don`t know" and help them understand the power behind it. Let`s talk to them about how it feels to not know something. And, finally, let`s be honest with children about the limits of our own knowledge.

Annaka Harris

In a small town or an apartment building with paper-thin walls, what I know about you is roughly the same as what you know about me. That's a basis for a social contract, in which we'll deliberately ignore some of what we know. The new privacyless world does away with that contract. I can know a lot about you without your knowing I know.

Eli Pariser

The next best thing to knowing something is knowing where to find it.

Samuel Johnson

The most difficult aspect of any task is knowing where to start.

Francine Jay

It`s thinking you know that stops you from knowing.

Steve Maraboli

Myths, whether in written or visual form, serve a vital role of asking unanswerable questions and providing unquestionable answers. Most of us, most of the time, have a low tolerance for ambiguity and uncertainty. We want to reduce the cognitive dissonance of not knowing by filling the gaps with answers. Traditionally, religious myths have served that role, but today - the age of science - science fiction is our mythology.

Michael Shermer

Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts inevitably bring about right results.

James Allen

The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.

Albert Einstein

Science is the only way of knowing - everything else is superstition.

Robert Park

I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.

Richard Feynman
