We know, not by a direct and simple vision, not at a glance, but as it were, by piecemeal and accumulation … by going around an object, by comparison.

The person who says he knows what he thinks but cannot express it usually does not know what he thinks.
  —   Mortimer Alder
[“W” may have mispronounced words, but at least his sentences more or less made sense.  #45 (#TheIdiotPresident) makes up words, mispronounces words and, even when he uses the corrects word(s), the sentences and paragraph don’t make sense.  And, he is not deflecting or distracting or lying (like Kellyanne Conway); he is just stringing random words together in phrases which almost (but not quite) make sense.  They make even less sense when you try to read them (the words) from print (transcript) format.  —  KMAB]

Imagination is more important than knowledge.  For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.

Training is not knowledge and knowledge is not strength.  But combine knowledge with training and one will get strength.
   —  The Book Of Sinanju
[I have a large number of “quotes” in my journal which are simply attributed to “House of Sinanju”.  I am sure they are all (each) from one of the 70+ books in “The Destroyer” series (co-written by Richard Sapir & Warren Murphy) which I was reading back in the 1970’s.  I didn’t record which book each quote came out of at the time I found them.  So, I’m just leaving them as recorded.  If anyone finds the book with the quote in it, and lets me know, I will be happy to attribute the quote accurately.  —  KMAB]
