knowl'êdge (nôl), noun.
Knowing, familiarity gained by experience,
person's range of knowledge or practical
The modern-minded man, although he believes profoundly in the
wisdom of his period, must be presumed to be very modest about his
personal powers. His highest hope is to think first what is about
to be thought, to say what is about to be said, and to feel what is
about to be felt; he has no wish to think better thoughts than his
neighbors, to say things showing more insight, or to have emotions
which are not those of some fashionable group, but only to be
slightly ahead of others at that point in time. Quite deliberately
he suppresses what is individual in himself.
