    KNOWLEDGE

    Burghardt DuBois, the great black educator, sociologist, and historian, upon completion of studies at Fisk, Harvard and the University of Berlin, was convinced that change in the condition of the American black could be effected by careful scientific investigations into the truth about the black in America. So he proceeded. His research was flawless and his graphs and charts impeccable. After waiting several years and hearing not the slightest stir of reform, Dr. DuBois had to accept the truth about Truth: Its being available does not mean it will be appropriated.

    Fred B. Craddock, Overhearing the Gospel.


    A black preacher introduced a guest speaker with the following: "The man we has speaking to us is a man who knows the unknowable, can solve the unsolvable and can screw the inscrutable."

    S.L. Johnson.


    The sum total of man's knowledge could be represented graphically:

    Up to 1845 = 1 inch
    1845 to 1945 = 3 inches
    1945 to 1976 = the height of the Washington Monument

    John McArthur, tape on Ephesians 5:15-17.


    He not only overflowed with learning, but stood in the slop.

    Rev. Sidney Smith quoted in:  Nancy McPhee, The Book of Insults, Ancient and Modern.


    For every man, education should be a process which continues all his life. We have to abandon, as swiftly as possible, the idea that schooling is something restricted to youth. How can it be, in a world where half the things a man knows at 20 are no longer true at 40--and half the things he knows at 40 hadn't been discovered when he was 20?

    Arthur C. Clarke in The View From Serendip.


    Knowledge is exploding at such a rate--more than 2000 pages a minute--that even Einstein couldn't keep up. In fact, if you read 24 hours a day, from age 21 to 70, and retained all you read, you would be one and a half million years behind when you finished.

    Campus Life, February, 1979.
