George Siemens is collecting some good quotes

Via elearnspace...

No one knows what they're doing

No one knows what they're doing: "You can stop pretending you know what you're doing. I know you're making everything up as you go (hoping nobody notices). It's OK though - that's not where your problems are coming from. Rather, your problems are coming from the fact that you think other people know what they're doing...Relax into your ignorance. Open up. Experiment." - Doug Sundheim

Knowledge and knowing

Knowledge and knowing: "Knowledge as possession and knowledge as being, is one of those fundamental polarities in KM" - Denham Gray

Lovaglia’s Law

Lovaglia’s Law: "The more important the outcome of a decision, the more people will resist using evidence to make it." - Michael Lovaglia

I have always quite liked the "Yes Minister" quote for notions of No one knows what they are doing

"If people don't know what you're doing, they don't know what you're doing wrong."

But nothing can surpass the quote that allows you to characterise colleagues through the chairs available within the institution.

"Two kinds of government chair correspond with the two kinds of minister: one sort folds up instantly and the other sort goes round and round in circles."

"Knowledge as possession and knowledge as being"

How about knowledge as process?
