Knowledge and Wisdom

Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living; the other helps you make a life. (Sandra Carey)
Ignorance is the curse of God; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven. (William Shakespeare)
Imagination is more important than knowledge; for knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. (Albert Einstein)
Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength, mastering yourself is true power. (Lao-Tzu)
If most of us remain ignorant of ourselves, it is because self-knowledge is painful and we prefer the pleasures of illusion. (Aldous Huxley)
I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and non-violence are as old as the hills. All I have done is to try experiments in both on as vast a scale as I could. (Gandhi)
Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them. (Albert Einstein)
He who knows not, and knows not that He knows not, is a fool—shun him
He who knows not, and he knows that He knows not, can be taught—teach him
He who knows and knows not that he knows, Is asleep—wake him
He who knows and knows that he knows,
Is a Prophet—follow him (A Persian proverb)
