The saying that knowledge is power is not quite true. Used knowledge is power, and more than power. It is money, and service, and better living for our fellow men, and a hundred other good things. But mere knowledge, left unused, has no power in it.
Edward E. Free
All men see the same objects, but do not equally understand them. Intelligence is the tongue that discerns and tastes them.
Real intelligence is a creative use of knowledge, not merely an accumulation of facts.
D. Kenneth Winebrenner
Getting an idea should be like sitting down on a pin; it should make you jump up and do something.
E. L. Simpson
A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.
Wisdom denotes the pursuing of the best ends by the best means.
Nine-tenths of wisdom consists in being wise in time.
If you make people think they're thinking, they'll love you. If you really make them think, they'll hate you.
A room hung with pictures is a room hung with thoughts.
A moment's in sight is sometimes worth a life's experience.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
