I know how to set an irrigation tube, and I helped with the harvest. I learned the law of the harvest without even knowing I was learning it. On the farm, you learn early that you reap what you sow.
True power arises in knowing what you want, knowing what you don't want, expressing it clearly and lovingly without attachment to the outcome.
I went to Q-school knowing that I could play well and get through.
Paul Thomas Anderson
You write who you are. But you also cheat, and youwrite what you want to be. It's embarrasing to be the guy who madethe movie, knowing you're not exactly who you want to be.
Even when I think I'm wrong I'm right. I am all-knowing.
Barack Obama is telling the banking industry what it can and can't charge and what profit he will accept and what level of profit he won't accept. Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter came up with this scheme that resulted in the subprime mortgage crisis. They said it was unfair that poor and minority people didn't have houses, so we're basically gonna give 'em houses. How are we gonna do that? We're going to make the banks loan them money, knowing full well they can't pay it back.
The reward that outdoes all others is the peace of knowing that you did right.
There is no greater impotence in all the world like knowing you are right and that the wave of the world is wrong, yet the wave crashes upon you.
Paul R. Ehrlich
Stanford may be the best university in the world, but you can get all the way through here without knowing where your food came from, without being able to say where we came from, without being able to give a coherent description of why the climate is changing and why we should be concerned about it. So I started teaching a course in human evolution and the environment that's open to all Stanford students, no prerequisites.
But that we shall be better and braver and less helpless if we think that we ought to enquire, than we should have been if we indulged in the idle fancy that there was no knowing and no use in seeking to know what we do not know; - that is a theme upon which I am ready to fight, in word and deed, to the utmost of my power.
And isn't it a bad thing to be deceived about the truth, and a good thing to know what the truth is? For I assume that by knowing the truth you mean knowing things as they really are.
No man's nature is able to know what is best for the social state of man; or, knowing, always able to do what is best.
Courage is knowing what to fear.
The fear of death is indeed the pretence of wisdom, and not real wisdom, being the appearance of knowing the unknown.
A good education consists in knowing how to sing and dance well.
Anything worth knowing is already known and must be remembered and reclaimed by the soul.
The necessity of knowing a little about a great many things is the most grievous burden of our day. It deprives us of leisure on the one hand, and of scholarship on the other.
I don't think the police, even if we train them, can be, you know, as good as psychologists and psychiatrists and others knowing what is happening to somebody. So we've got to have a more coherent, comprehensive approach.
Knowing what to expect next gives children a sense of security.
There's nothing wrong with knowing what you want and going after it.
There is a primal reassurance in being touched, in knowing that someone else, someone close to you, wants to be touching you. There is a bone-deep security that goes with the brush of a human hand, a silent, reflex-level affirmation that someone is near, that someone cares.
Knowing where things are, and why, is essential to rational decision making
That we need only to recognize GOD intimately present with us, to address ourselves to Him every moment, that we may beg His assistance for knowing His will in things doubtful, and for rightly performing those which we plainly see He requires of us, offering them to Him before we do them, and giving Him thanks when we have done.
So many times we come to Jesus in worship and ask Him for things that He already IS and has already done... What a concept to come into worship knowing who we are approaching...the absolute fullness of God, pleased to dwell in this Jesus whom we worship. He's already broken the chains...already seated us with Him...already invited us 'into the glorious'.
An actor shouldn't undergo psychoanalysis, because there are a lot of things you're better off not knowing.
A man who marries without knowing Bunbury has a very tedious time of it.
Education is very admirable but let us not forget that anything worth knowing cannot be taught.
I am but too conscious of the fact that we are born in an age when only the dull are treated seriously, and I live in terror of not being misunderstood. Don't degrade me into the position of giving you useful information. Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.
Nothing worth knowing can be taught.
The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything, except what is worth knowing.
