If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great person you might have been.

Robert Harold Schuller

Not knowing the answer to a question is not a valid excuse for making up a fairytale to explain it.

Armin Navabi

A shark? No. I like to think I`m more like a panther. A shark attacks without you knowing, with panther you know it`s coming but he still gets you.

Lewis Hamilton

One of the most terrible feelings in the world is knowing that someone else doesn`t like you. Especially when you don`t know what you`ve done to deserve it.

Ariana Grande

The most compelling lies are comprised almost entirely of the truth. But that`s what it does. Cloaks itself in whatever it must to move you to action. And the more you deny its presence, the more powerful it gets, and the more likely it is to consume you entirely without you ever even knowing it was there.

Black Sails (movie)

There is no shame in not knowing. The problem arises when irrational thought [...] fill the vacuum left by ignorance.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

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.

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
