I like it. It might be said here that knowledge is more than just an accepted library of information.

This sounds like something Al Gore would say. I cannot image Bush speaking these words from a dais, the audience would be rolling in the floor with laughter if not with scorn.

Gore has no concept of freedom. He is a fascist in his politics and his tactics. Gore also has little knowledge of anything but propaganda. A true mental midget. Knowledge is great but I think that the quote comes up a bit short. The word only makes it less than accurate.

Great quote, though Einstein would also have added "Imagination" - if only America would take heed. Gore has more ethics in his little finger than Bush and his current and past administration put together. If the Presidency wasn't stolen from Gore this country would still be the envy of the world. Obviously you were referring to Bush with regards to your name calling...

The wise know themselves to be perpetual students -- only a fool thinks he 'knows'.

Ignorance is a religion and God help the person who crosses up the ignorant or the church with facts and science. Just remember what happened to people who were scorned and thrown out of the church for saying the WORLD IS ROUND. Was the world is round and the earth goes around the sun a religon or science.
