Deep in each man is the knowledge
that something knows of his
existence. Something knows, and
cannot be fled nor hid from.

The size and age of the Cosmos are
beyond ordinary human
understanding. Lost somewhere
between immensity and eternity is
our tiny planetary home. In a
cosmic perspective, most human
concerns seem insignificant, even
petty. And yet our species is young
and curious and brave and shows
much promise. In the last few
millennia we have made the most
astonishing and unexpected
discoveries about the Cosmos and
our place within it, explorations
that are exhilarating to consider.
They remind us that humans have
evolved to wonder, that
understanding is a joy, that
knowledge is prerequisite to
survival. I believe our future
depends on how well we know this
Cosmos in which we float like a
mote of dust in the morning sky.

Wisdom cannot be imparted. Wisdom
that a wise man attempts to impart
always sounds like foolishness to
someone else. Knowledge can be
communicated, but not wisdom. One
can find it, live it, do wonders
through it, but one cannot
communicate and teach it.

Because we’ve been lied to
and lied to, and it hurts to be
lied to. It’s ultimately just
about that complicated: it hurts.
It denies you respect for yourself,
for the liar, for the world.
Especially if the lies are chronic,
systemic, if hard experience seems
to teach that everything
you’re supposed to believe
in’s really a game based on
lies. Young Voters have been taught
well and thoroughly. You may not
personally remember Vietnam or
Watergate, but it’s a good
bet you remember ‘No new
taxes’ and ‘Out of the
loop’ and ‘No direct
knowledge of any impropriety at
this time’ and Did not
inhale’ and ‘Did not
have sex with that woman’...
It’s depressing and painful
to believe that the would-be
‘public servants’
you’re forced to choose
between are all phonies whose only
real concern is their own care and
feeding and who will lie so
outrageously with such a straight
face that you just know they have
to believe you’re an idiot.
So who wouldn’t fall all over
themselves for a top politician who
actually seemed to talk to you like
you were a person, an intelligent
adult worthy of respect?

If knowledge leaks, i absorb it
like a sponge. Knowledge is power.

Of course there's a lot of
knowledge in universities: the
freshmen bring a little in; the
seniors don't take much away, so
knowledge sort of accumulates.

A. Lawrence Lowell

There's a period of life when we
swallow a knowledge of ourselves
and it becomes either good or sour
inside.

Pearl Bailey

Category: Death

The really frightening thing about
middle age is the knowledge that
you'll grow out of it.

Doris Day
