From the Analects of Confucius:
Confucius said, "Learning without thinking is labor lost; thinking without learning is perilous." (2:15)

Confucius said, "Yu, shall I teach you what knowledge is? When you know a thing, say that you know it; when you do not know a thing, admit that you do not know it. That is knowledge." (2:17)
