I am my own biggest critic. Before anyone else has criticized me, I have already criticized myself. But for the rest of my life, I am going to be with me and I don't want to spend my life with someone who is always critical. So I am going to stop being my own critic. It's high time that I accept all the great things about me.

Knowledge is power. Power to do evil...or power to do good. Power itself is not evil. So knowledge itself is not evil.

It is the absence of facts that frightens people: the gap you open, into which they pour their fears, fantasies, desires.
The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.
I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.
Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours.
No thief, however skillful, can rob one of knowledge, and that is why knowledge is the best and safest treasure to acquire.
I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
