These facts strongly indicate the value of knowledge of properties of materials and indicate a way for research." - Willis R. Whitney

Nothing exists unless I maintain it (by my interest, or my potential interest). This is an ultimate, mostly subliminal anxiety. Hence, I must remain always, both in principle + actively, interested in everything. Taking all of knowledge as my province." - Susan Sontag

Even when we pursue self-knowledge, we all too often reduce it to a hedonistic search for personal peace and prosperity. How poor we are! Even the pagan philosophers were wiser than this generation. They knew that an unexamined life was not worth living." - Richard J. Foster

"The most important thing is practice in daily life; then you can know gradually the true value of religion. Doctrine is not meant for mere knowledge, but for the improvement of our minds.

That they all have a power beyond his own, a power beyond the reach of any magic, is a truth he has never grasped..." - J K Rowling

"Like most things of great worth, knowledge which is of eternal value comes only through personal prayer and pondering.
