Author: Alan Wilson Watts
2. "Isn't it easy to see that this line is imaginary, and that it, and the witness behind it, are the same old faking process automatically learned in childhood? The same old cleft between the knower and the known? The same old split between the organism/environment and the organism's feedback, or self-conscious mechanism?"
Author: Alan Wilson Watts

"When women reassert their relationship with the wildish nature, they are gifted with a permanent and internal watcher, a knower, a visionary, an oracle, an inspiratrice, an intuitive, a maker, a creator, an inventor, and a listener who guide, suggest, and urge vibrant life in the inner and outer world."

8. "Never during its pilgrimage is the human spirit completely adrift and alone. From start to finish its nucleus is the Atman, the god-within... underlying its whirlpool of transient feelings, emotions, and delusions is the self-luminous, abiding point of the transpersonal god. As the sun lights the world even when cloud-covered, "the Immutable is never seen but is the Witness; it is never heard but is the Hearer; it is never thought but is the Thinker; it is never known but is the Knower. There is no other witness but This, no other knower but This." from the Upanishad"
Author: Huston Smith
9. "He who has awakened into the light of day is no more burdened with the troubles of his dreams. They are remembered as dreams only as illusions that are dispelled. The unawakened one knows neither waking nor dreaming; He is in confusion, he knows not himself; Neither knows he others, and his judgment is without knowledge. The awakened one knows both waking and dreaming; He is established in wisdom; Knowing himself, he knows others, and he judges with knowledge. He is the understander, the knower of hearts, And, walking in the light of Truth, he knows that every dreamer will at last awake."
Author: James Allen
10. "The motive that impels modern reason to know must be described as the desire to conquer and dominate. For the Greek philosophers and the Fathers of the church, knowing meant something different: it meant knowing in wonder. By knowing or perceiving one participates in the life of the other. Here knowing does not transform the counterpart into the property of the knower; the knower does not appropriate what he knows. On the contrary, he is transformed through sympathy, becoming a participant in what he perceives."
Author: Jürgen Moltmann
11. "What is seen is not the TruthWhat is cannot be saidTrust comes not without seeingNor understanding without wordsThe wise comprehends with knowledgeTo the ignorant it is but a wonderSome worship the formless GodSome worship his various formsIn what way He is beyond these attributesOnly the Knower knowsThat music cannot be writtenHow can then be the notesSay Kabir, awareness alone will overcome illusion."
Author: Kabir
12. "But if the biblical story is true, the kind of certainty proper to a human being will be one which rests on the fidelity of God, not upon the competence of the human knower. It will be a kind of certainty which is inseparable from gratitude and trust."
Author: Lesslie Newbigin
13. "We weren't really friends yet, just knowers of each other's secret stuff."
Author: M. Beth Bloom
14. "The sayers do not know and the knowers do not say."
Author: Matthew Polly

18. "Forgive me, I have yet to introduce myself." The Human spread his arms expansively and bowed in his chair. He made grand gestures at his stall full of paper, ink, charts, and graphing tools, like they were his subjects, and he their king. "I am Enoch Michelson, adept cartographer, recluse, and the lord and master of a tiny, dark corner of Patrician's Market. I am a knower of many useless things, and a knower of a few things that matter. Finder of lost items. Gossipmonger." His smile grew even slyer. "And an informant for a little band of Majiski assassins."
Author: S.G. Night
19. "A style of this sort will seem to modern readers marred by classical stiffness--"Truth," "Knowers," "the Good," "Man"--but we can by no means deny that behind our objection to such language is a guilty consciousness of the flimsiness, and not infrequently the trashiness, of our modern talk about "values."
Author: Saul Bellow

21. "Conceiv'd out of the fullest heat and pulse of European feudalism -personifying ill unparalleled ways the medieval aristocracy, its towering spirit of ruthless and gigantic caste, with its own peculiar air and arrogance (no mere imitation) -only one of the "wolfish earls" so plenteous in the plays themselves, or some born descendant and knower, might seem to be the true author of those amazing works -works in some respects greater than anything else ill recorded literature."
Author: Walt Whitman
22. "We must know the truth; and we must avoid error,--these are our first and great commandments as would-be knowers; but they are not two ways of stating an identical commandment, they are two separable laws. Although it may indeed happen that when we believe the truth A, we escape as an incidental consequence from believing the falsehood B, it hardly ever happens that by merely disbelieving B we necessarily believe A. We may in escaping B fall into believing other falsehoods, C or D, just as bad as B; or we may escape B by not believing anything at all, not even A."
Author: William James
