„Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in infomation?“

Choruses from The Rock (1934)
Wariant: Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
Kontekst: O perpetual revolution of configured stars,
O perpetual recurrence of determined seasons,
O world of spring and autumn, birth and dying!
The endless cycle of idea and action,
Endless invention, endless experiment,
Brings knowledge of motion, but not of stillness;
Knowledge of speech, but not of silence;
Knowledge of words, and ignorance of The Word.
All our knowledge brings us nearer to our ignorance,
All our ignorance brings us nearer to death,
But nearness to death no nearer to God.
Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
The cycles of Heaven in twenty centuries
Brings us farther from God and nearer to the Dust.

Hermann Hesse Fotografia

„I have never lost the feeling of contradiction that lies behind all knowledge.“

—  Hermann Hesse, książka Gertrud

Gertrude (1910)
Kontekst: That life is difficult, I have often bitterly realized. I now had further cause for serious reflection. Right up to the present I have never lost the feeling of contradiction that lies behind all knowledge. My life has been miserable and difficult, and yet to others, and sometimes to myself, it has seemed rich and wonderful. Man's life seems to me like a long, weary night that would be intolerable if there were not occasionally flashes of light, the sudden brightness of which is so comforting and wonderful, that the moments of their appearance cancel out and justify the years of darkness.

Aleister Crowley Fotografia

„Knowledge is power; knowledge shared is power lost.“

—  Aleister Crowley poet, mountaineer, occultist 1875 - 1947

This has been attributed to Crowley on the internet, but without citation. No incidents of it in Crowley's works have as yet been located.
This was quoted as an "occult tradition" in Fundamentals of Experimental Psychology (1976) by Charles Lawrence Sheridan, p. 17, but without any reference to Crowley.
