Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Donato Carrisi
#1. Yet he knew things he would have preferred not to know. Things about men and the evil they do. Things so terrible as to make anyone's confidence waver, and contaminate anyone's heart forever. He looked at the people around him, people who lived without that burden of knowledge, and envied them. #Quote by Donato Carrisi
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Ogwo David Emenike
#2. The burden of knowledge is lighter than the joy of ignorance. #Quote by Ogwo David Emenike
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Catherine Lacey
#3. She wished Felix and Jay were babies again, though they were never babies at the same time, and she wished she could have been a baby with them, too, that they could all lie in a thoughtless baby lump, void of all responsibilities and knowledge, without history, just soft skin and fat, piled on each other like puppies, mother and children, impossibly all infants at the same time. She #Quote by Catherine Lacey
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Kenneth E. Boulding
#4. The troubles of the 20th century are not unlike those of adolescence
rapid growth beyond the ability of organizations to manage, uncontrollable emotion, and a desperate search for identity. Out of adolescence, however, comes maturity in which physical growth with all its attendant difficulties comes to an end, but in which growth continues in knowledge, in spirit, in community, and in love; it is to this that we look forward as a human race. This goal, once seen with our eyes, will draw our faltering feet toward it. #Quote by Kenneth E. Boulding
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Wayne Mack
#5. Knowledge of facts is important. Knowledge of truth is essential. Yet our Lord's concern goes beyond mere head knowledge. He wants us not only to know the truth but also to obey the truth. He wants us to live the truth, practice the truth, and be conformed to and transformed by that truth. #Quote by Wayne Mack
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Elias Canetti
#6. The self-explorer, whether he wants to or not, becomes the explorer of everything else. #Quote by Elias Canetti
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by L.J.M. Owen
#7. Librarians...put their hearts and minds into preserving knowledge and making it available to all. They help to keep the wheels of truth, discovery and imagination turning." - L.J.M. Owen #Quote by L.J.M. Owen
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Michael Crichton
#8. Although knowledge of how things work is sufficient to allow manipulation of nature, what humans really want to know is why things work. Children don't ask how the sky is blue. They ask why the sky is blue. #Quote by Michael Crichton
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Robert Penn Warren
#9. For life is a fire burning along a piece of string
or is it a fuse to a powder keg which we call God?
and the string is what we don't know, our Ignorance, and the trail of ash, which, if a gust of wind does not come, keeps the structure of the string, is History, man's Knowledge, but it is dead, and when the fire has burned up all the string, then man's Knowledge will be equal to God's Knowledge and there won't be any fire, which is Life. Or if the string leads to a powder keg, then there will be a terrific blast of fire, and even the trail of ash will be blown completely away. #Quote by Robert Penn Warren
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Fleur Jaeggy
#10. Inside, a mother superior, ethereal, delicate, who took me under her wing. She caressed me with her slender, soft hands, she sat next to me as if I were a friend. One day she disappeared. In her place arrived a buxom Swiss from Canton Uri. It's common knowledge that a new leader will hate the predecessors' favourites. A boarding school is like a harem. #Quote by Fleur Jaeggy
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Arianna Huffington
#11. The quest for knowledge may be pursued at higher speeds with smarter tools today, but wisdom is found no more readily than it was three thousand years ago in the court of King Solomon. #Quote by Arianna Huffington
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by George Porter
#12. To solve a problem is to create new problems, new knowledge immediately reveals new areas of ignorance, and the need for new experiments. At least, in the field of fast reactions, the experiments do not take very long to perform. #Quote by George Porter
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Lloyd Alexander
#13. As a boy, he had dreamed of taking a man's place among men; and, as a boy, had deemed himself well fit to do so. Now, amid the grizzled, battle-wise warriors, his strength seemed feeble, his knowledge clouded. #Quote by Lloyd Alexander
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Nelson Goodman
#14. My title "The Fabrication of Facts," has the virtue not only of indicating pretty clearly what I am going to discuss but also of irritating those fundamentalists who know very well that facts are found not madder, that facts constitute the one and only real world, and that knowledge consists of believing the facts. These articles of faith so firmly possess most of us, they so bind and blind us, that "fabrication of fact" has a paradoxical sound. "Fabrication" has become a synonym for "falsehood" or "fiction" as contrasted with "truth" or "fact." Of course, we must distinguish falsehood and fiction from truth and fact; but we cannot, I am sure, do it on ground that fiction is fabricated and fact found. - 91 #Quote by Nelson Goodman
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#15. MAGNETISM, n. Something acting upon a magnet. The two definitions immediately foregoing are condensed from the works of one thousand eminent scientists, who have illuminated the subject with a great white light, to the inexpressible advancement of human knowledge. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Ted Kerasote
#16. For us hunting wasn't a sport. It was a way to be intimate with nature, that intimacy providing us with wild unprocessed food free from pesticides and hormones and with the bonus of having been produced without the addition of great quantities of fossil fuel. In addition, hunting provided us with an ever scarcer relationship in a world of cities, factory farms, and agribusiness, direct responsibility for taking the lives that sustained us. Lives that even vegans indirectly take as the growing and harvesting of organic produce kills deer, birds, snakes, rodents, and insects. We lived close to the animals we ate. We knew their habits and that knowledge deepened our thanks to them and the land that made them. #Quote by Ted Kerasote
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Kailash Satyarthi
#17. Learning from the experiences of our ancestors, let us together create knowledge for all that benefits all. #Quote by Kailash Satyarthi
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Debasish Mridha
#18. You are a dancer in this great stage we call life. Your imagination is the writer and thoughts are the director of the dance drama. So unleash your thoughts to dramatize your dance. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Plato
#19. Ideas are the source of all things #Quote by Plato
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Debasish Mridha
#20. Success is a way of life that has meaning and purpose. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#21. It must be good to die in the knowledge that one has done some truthful work ... and to know that, as a result, one will live on in the memory of at least a few and leave a good example for those who come after. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Howard Thurman
#22. I will light candles this Christmas, Candles of joy, despite all sadness, Candles of hope where despair keeps watch. Candles of courage where fear is ever present, Candles of peace for tempest-tossed days, Candles of grace to ease heavy burdens. Candles of love to inspire all my living, Candles that will burn all the year long. #Quote by Howard Thurman
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Mark T. Barnes
#23. The chance for names to be words, without the burden of emotion. Or hurt. She #Quote by Mark T. Barnes
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Debasish Mridha
#24. When you feel weak, energize yourself with the power of love, love everyone and everything, this world will be yours. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Hudson Taylor
#25. A few nights after his conversion he asked how long this Gospel had been known in England. He was told that we had known it for some hundreds of years.
"What!" said he, amazed; "is it possible that for hundreds of years you have had the knowledge of those glad tidings in your possession, and yet have only now come to preach it to us? My father sought after the Truth for more than twenty years, and died without finding it. Oh, why did you not come sooner? #Quote by Hudson Taylor
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Eugene Thacker
#26. We have to entertain the possibility that there is no reason for something existing; or that the split between subject and object is only our name for something equally accidental we call knowledge; or, an even more difficult thought, that while there may be some order to the self and the cosmos, to the microcosm and macrocosm, it is an order that is absolutely indifferent to our existence, and of which we can have only a negative awareness. #Quote by Eugene Thacker
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Michael Gove
#27. The accumulation of cultural capital - the acquisition of knowledge - is the key to social mobility. #Quote by Michael Gove
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Terry Tempest Williams
#28. I've been thinking about what it means to bear witness. The past ten years I've been bearing witness to death, bearing witness to women I love, and bearing witness to the [nuclear] testing going on in the Nevada desert. I've been bearing witness to bombing runs on the edge of the Cabeza Prieta Wildlife Refuge, bearing witness to the burning of yew trees and their healing secrets in slash piles in the Pacific Northwest and thinking this is not so unlike the burning of witches, who also held knowledge of heading within their bones. I've been bearing witness to traplines of coyotes being poisoned by the Animal Damage Control. And I've been bearing witness to beauty, beauty that strikes a chord so deep you can't stop the tears from flowing. At places as astonishing as Mono Lake, where I've stood knee-deep in salt-water to watch the fresh water of Lee Vining Creek flow over the top like water on vinegar....It's the space of angels. I've been bearing witness to dancing grouse on their leks up at Malheur in Oregon.

Bearing witness to both the beauty and pain of our world is a task that I want to be part of. As a writer, this is my work. By bearing witness, the story that is told can provide a healing ground. Through the art of language, the art of story, alchemy can occur. And if we choose to turn our backs, we've walked away from what it means to be human. #Quote by Terry Tempest Williams
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee
#29. In an age of increasingly mechanized production, the genesis of scientific knowledge remains an unyieldingly, obstreperously hand-hewn process. It is among the most human of our activities. Far from being subsumed by the dehumanizing effects of technology, science remains our last stand against it. #Quote by Siddhartha Mukherjee
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by John Campbell Shairp
#30. The main condition is that the spiritual ear should be open to overhear and patiently take in, and the will ready to obey that testimony which, I believe, God bears in every human heart, however dull, to those great truths which the Bible reveals. This, and not logic, is the way to grow in religious knowledge, to know that the truths of religion are not shadows, but deep realities. #Quote by John Campbell Shairp
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#31. The Soul's doership has arisen due to ignorance. Because of this, the inner working components of antaskaran [mind, intellect, chitta and ego] have arisen, and so has the relative-self [prakruti]. #Quote by Dada Bhagwan
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Cullen Thomas
#32. Every day the same things came up; the work was never done, and the tedium of it began to weigh on me. Part of what made English a difficult subject for Korean students was the lack of a more active principle in their learning. They were accustomed to receiving, recording, and memorizing. That's the Confucian mode. As a student, you're not supposed to question a teacher; you should avoid asking for explanations because that might reveal a lack of knowledge, which can be seen as an insult to the teacher's efforts. You don't have an open, free exchange with teachers as we often have here in the West. And further, under this design, a student doesn't do much in the way of improvisation or interpretation.

This approach might work well for some pursuits, may even be preferred--indeed, I was often amazed by the way Koreans learned crafts and skills, everything from basketball to calligraphy, for example, by methodically studying and reproducing a defined set of steps (a BBC report explained how the North Korean leader Kim Jong Il had his minions rigorously study the pizza-making techniques used by Italian chefs so that he could get a good pie at home, even as thousands of his subjects starved)--but foreign-language learning, the actual speaking component most of all, has to be more spontaneous and less rigid.

We all saw this played out before our eyes and quickly discerned the problem. A student cannot hope to sit in a class and have a language handed over to #Quote by Cullen Thomas
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Narendra Modi
#33. Bodh Gaya is a land of enlightenment. Years ago, what Bodh Gaya got was Siddhartha but what Bodh Gaya gave to the world was Lord Buddha, the epitome of knowledge, peace and compassion. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#34. The person whose attention is in the 'pure Soul' is known as a renowned person. No one in the past had been celebrated as a famous person; they were called renowned persons. To be famous is the result of an 'above normal' state. #Quote by Dada Bhagwan
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Debasish Mridha
#35. All progress of humanity happened because humans wanted to be loved and appreciated. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Clarence Darrow
#36. We know life is futile. A man who considers that his life is of very wonderful importance is awfully close to a padded cell. #Quote by Clarence Darrow
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Alberto Manguel
#37. This morning I looked at the books on my shelves and thought that they have no knowledge of my existence. They come to life because I open them and turn their pages, and yet they don't know that I am their reader. #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Marcus Buckingham
#38. The power of skills and knowledge is that they are transferable from one person to another. Their limitation is that they are often situation-specific - faced with an unanticipated scenario, they lose much of their power. In contrast, the power of talent is that it is transferable from situation to situation. #Quote by Marcus Buckingham
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Raymond D. Longoria Jr.
#39. I am so Thankful in the knowledge… If I want to learn something I can study it. However, If I want to have something etched in my Soul, I must Teach it. Always remembering that each of us teaches best that which we, the teacher, most need to learn #Quote by Raymond D. Longoria Jr.
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Janet Frame
#40. The human race is an elsewhere race and I am an imposter in a street of imposters. I am nothing and no-one: I was never born. I am a graduate imposter, having applied myself from my earliest years to the study of the development of imposture as practiced in myself and in others around me in street, town, city, country, and on earth. The imposture begins with the first germ of disbelief in being, in self, and this allied to the conviction of the 'unalterable certainty of truth", produces the truth of disbelief, of deception of being, of self, of times, places, peoples, of all time and space. The existence of anything, of anywhere and anytime produces an instant denial only in graduates of imposture; in most others who remain unaware of such a state, particularly in themselves, there may be little or no knowledge of their reality, their nonentity…Complete imposture, I repeat, leads to nothingness in which one inhabits all worlds except the world of oneself. #Quote by Janet Frame
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#41. If it is only one thing in life that you have or allowed to discover, then it must be your significance. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Elizabeth George
#42. She'd liked things better when everything had been controlled simply by on and off switches and when push-button telephone and telly remotes were as far as technology had gone. Make a few calls and put the burden of information searching on someone else. That was the ticket. Now, however, things were different. It was the investigator's mental shoe leather that got worn down, not the real thing. #Quote by Elizabeth George
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Ramakrishna
#43. The way of love is as true as the way of knowledge. All paths ultimately lead to the same Truth. But as long as God keeps the feeling of ego in us, it is easier to follow the path of love. #Quote by Ramakrishna
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Frederick Lenz
#44. If I can have an effect on influential women and men, if they seek me out because they are interested in self-knowledge and the fun of meditating, then I'm glad to help. That's why I'm here. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Stefan Molyneux
#45. Empathy is the sunlight to the vampire of culture. #Quote by Stefan Molyneux
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Frei Otto
#46. To build means to make architecture real on the borders of knowledge. #Quote by Frei Otto
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Dean Koontz
#47. Her eyes were celadon saucers but bottomless, of such great depth that she could take in the knowledge of whole worlds and have room in that gaze for still more. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by David A. Bednar
#48. Please note that Moroni formulated both defensive and offensive strategies based upon his knowledge about the intent of the enemy, and his design was established upon a righteous cause. #Quote by David A. Bednar
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#49. I ... must continue to strive for more knowledge and more power, though the new knowledge always contradicts the old and the new power is the destruction of the fools who misuse it. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Otto Weininger
#50. No one suffers so much as he [the genius] with the people, and, therefore, for the people, with whom he lives. For, in a certain sense, it is certainly only "by suffering" that a man knows. If compassion is not itself clear, abstractly conceivable or visibly symbolic knowledge, it is, at any rate, the strongest impulse for the acquisition of knowledge. It is only by suffering that the genius understands men. And the genius suffers most because he suffers with and in each and all; but he suffers most through his understanding ... #Quote by Otto Weininger
Burden Of Knowledge quotes by Laura Lane
#51. Love is an expression of tenderness. Practice it in all ways. Of course you will be tender and loving to your child. Express that same love to the rest of the family, your spouse, and, most importantly,
yourself. There is so much love around you. Let it in. Let it ease the burden. Let it envelope you and hold you ever so tenderly as you journey through these days. #Quote by Laura Lane
