That jewel knowledge is great riches, which is not plundered by kinsmen, nor carried off by thieves, nor decreased by giving.
      - Bhavabhuti (f/k/a Srikantha Nilakantha)

But thou, O daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
      - Bible, Daniel (ch. XII, v. 4)

For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.
      - Bible, Ecclesiastes (ch. I, v. 18)

He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.
      - Bible, Proverbs (ch. XVII, v. 27)

I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
      - Bible, Psalms (ch. XXII, v. 17)

There is no knowledge for which so great a price is paid as a knowledge of the world; and no one ever became an adept in it except at the expense of a hardened or a wounded heart.
      - Lady Marguerite Blessington, Countess of Blessington

Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it.
      - James Boswell

I know too much to be conservative or liberal.
      - David Brinkley

Pursuit of knowledge under difficulties.
      - Lord Henry Peter Brougham (Brougham and vaux),
        title he gave to a book published under superintendence of the Society of Useful Knowledge

Real knowledge never promoted either turbulence or unbelief; but its progress is the forerunner of liberality and enlightened toleration.
      - Lord Henry Peter Brougham (Brougham and vaux)

I envy no man that knows more than myself, but pity them that know less.
      - Sir Thomas Browne

Every man of sound brain whom you meet known something worth knowing better than yourself. A man, on the whole, is a better preceptor than a book. But what scholar does not allow that the dullest book can suggest to him a new and a sound idea?
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Knowledge cannot be stolen from us. It cannot be bought or sold. We may be poor, and the sheriff may come and sell our furniture, or drive away our cow, or take our pet lamb, and leave us homeless and penniless; but he cannot lay the law's hand upon the jewelry of our minds.
      - Elihu Burritt

Men are four:
  He who knows not and knows not he knows not, he is a fool--shun him;
    He who knows not and knows he knows not, he is simple--teach him;
      He who knows and knows not he knows, he is asleep--wake him;
        He who knows and knows he knows, hi is wise--follow him!
      - Lady Burton, given as an Arabian proverb

He knew what's what, and that's as high
  As metaphysic wit can fly.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Hudibras
         (pt. I, canto I, l. 149)

Deep sighted in intelligence,
  Ideas, atoms, influences.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Hudibras
         (pt. I, canto I, l. 533)

Nor do I know what is become
  Of him, more than the Pope of Rome.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Hudibras
         (pt. I, canto III, l. 263)

He knew whats'ever 's to be known,
  But much more than he knew would own.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Hudibras
         (pt. II, canto III, l. 297)

In reading authors, when you find
  Bright passages, that strike your mind,
    And which, perhaps, you may have reason
      To think on, at another season,
        Be not contented with the sight,
          But take them down in black and white;
            Such a respect is wisely shown,
              As makes another's sense one's own.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

The tree of knowledge is not that of life.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Manfred (act I, sc. 1)

Knowledge is not happiness, and science
  But an exchange of ignorance for that
    Which is another kind of ignorance.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Manfred (act II, sc. 4)

There's lots of people--this town wouldn't hold them;
  Who don't know much excepting what's told them.
      - Will Carleton, City Ballads (p. 143)

Just in ratio as knowledge increases, faith diminishes.
      - Thomas Carlyle

What is all Knowledge too but recorded Experience, and a product of History; of which, therefore, Reasoning and Belief, no less than Action and Passion, are essential materials?
      - Thomas Carlyle, Essays (On History)

For love is ever the beginning of Knowledge, as fire is of light.
      - Thomas Carlyle, Essays--Death of Goethe
