Knowledge Quotes:- Knowledge is what is known; the confident understanding of a subject, potentially with the ability to use it for a specific purpose. Knowledge becomes evil if the aim is not virtuous. It is a familiarity with someone or something, which can include facts, information, descriptions, or skills acquired through experience or education. The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing. Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.
