Knowledge is pain.
TED CRAWFORD, Fracture (2007)
An idea is a greater monument than a cathedral. And the advance of man's knowledge is a greater miracle than all the sticks turned to snakes or the parting of the waters.
HENRY DRUMMOND, Inherit the Wind (1960)
Knowledge isn't truth. It's just mindless agreement. You agree with me, I agree with someone else - we all have knowledge. We haven't come any closer to the truth. You can never understand anything by agreeing, by making definitions. Only by turning over the possibilities. That's called thinking. If I say I know, I stop thinking. As long as I keep thinking, I come to understand. That way, I might approach some truth.
THE PROFESSOR, Insignificance (1985)
To know that one does not know, is the gift of a superior spirit. Not to know and to think that one does know, is a mistake. To know that this is a mistake, keeps one from making it.
JERRY PROKOSCH, Le mépris (1963)
Knowledge is a terrible and marvelous thing.
BARB, Little Black Book (2004)
Knowledge comes slowly, and when it comes, it is often at great personal expense.
ASIA, Local Habitation (2000)
A teacher has two jobs; fill young minds with knowledge, yes, but more important, give those minds a compass so that that knowledge doesn't go to waste.
PRINCIPAL JACOBS, Mr. Holland's Opus (1995)
Living is the key to all knowledge.
CLINT, Road-Kill U.S.A. (1993)
Wars come and go. Humanity suffers. But knowledge and science survive.
ANTHONY FOKKER, The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones: Attack of the Hawkmen (1995)
