“Knowledge rests not upon truth alone, but upon error also.”― Carl Gustav Jung

“Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.”― Ronald E. Osborn

“The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them.”― Sir William Bragg

“To know that you do not know is best. To think you know when you do not is a disease. Recognizing this disease as a disease is to be free of it.” – Lao Tzu

“I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think.”― Socrates

“The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.”― Herbert Spencer

“The universe is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.” –  Eden Phillpotts

“Great knowledge is universal. Small knowledge is limited. Great words are inspiring. Small words are chatter.” –  Zhuangzi

“Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.” –  Albert Einstein 

“To attain knowledge, add things every day. To attain wisdom, remove things every day.” – Lao Tzu

“Any fool can know. The point is to understand.” –  Albert Einstein

“Knowing what you don’t know is more useful than being brilliant.” – Charlie Munger

“The best thing a human being can do is to help another human being know more.” – Charlie Munger

“The best investment you can make, is an investment in yourself… The more you learn, the more you’ll earn.” – Warren Buffett

“All great men are gifted with intuition. They know without reasoning or analysis, what they need to know.” – Alexis Carrel

“Don’t try to comprehend with your mind. Your minds are very limited. Use your intuition.” – Madeleine L’Engle

“Reading maketh a full man.” – Francis Bacon

“In my whole life, I have known no wise people who didn’t read all the time – none, zero.” – Charlie Munger

“A great book can transmit years of wisdom in a few afternoons. Each sentence conveys meaning with precision and economy. A great book is a patient teacher and a deathless companion. A man with a good library has a thousand good mentors.” – @TheStoicEmperor

“No thief, however skillful, can rob one of knowledge, and that is why knowledge is the best and safest treasure to acquire.” – L. Frank Baum

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create.” – Albert Einstein

“The larger the island of knowledge, the longer the shoreline of wonder.” – Ralph W. Sockman

“Understanding is far more important than knowledge. Knowledge is quantitative. It is information. It remains peripheral. Understanding is qualitative. It penetrates your heart and permeates your being. Knowledge boosts the ego but only understanding brings transformation.” – @TheAncientSage

“The education system works to load memory rather than increase understanding. Being able to reproduce information isn’t the same as understanding what it means. The system produces parrots who don’t know what they’re talking about with heads too stuffed to allow new perspectives.” – @TheAncientSage

“Knowledge is neutral; it is just information. It is the alchemical quality of mind – the receptacle in which the knowledge is put – that transforms it into something worthwhile. Knowledge without understanding is little more than a burden on the storage capacity of mind.” – @TheAncientSage
