    Knowledge is the information or facts that we get through education and learning novel things in life. The more we look for facts and information about a particular thing the more knowledge we get about a particular thing. The quest for knowledge goes on and on.
    Knowledge is an unending treasure, the more we dig deep the more we unfold the facts. Knowledge cannot be limited but continuous process of learning about different thing through education.
    Knowledge is an important aspect and people should get more and more to add to their knowledge.

    There is no limit to knowledge. It is like water in a well. Go on consuming, more will come to you. That is the power of knowledge. The more knowledge you acquire the more confused you are and hence you will study more to understand the knowledge. As you start going deep into the knowledge of a particular science you will become an expert in that line. In graduation you will have all branches of the subject you have chosen will be taught to you. You will cover the basics. In post-graduation, you will concentrate more on a particular branch of that subject. In PhD, you will concentrate more on a topic from the branch you have studied. That means you will be more focus on a particular area of your specialisation as you go up in the studies. It indicates that you are trying to acquire more knowledge in a particular field. Knowledge will improve by sharing with others, unlike money. Knowledge will give you recognition internationally and you can be able to live in any part of this world with your knowledge.
    Thinking that I know everything in a particular area and thinking that my knowledge n that particular area is foolish I think.

    Knowledge has no limit. It is like the size of the universe. Endless and infinite.

    When I was studying in high school, being from a lower middle class family, I had no money in my pocket and I had no way to entertain in the canteen or market or local fair. I tried some part time work but it was very strenuous and gave little money not worth of it.

    So, I had no option except to read books for free in the Govt library where even poor students were welcomed. It went on for a long time and unknowingly and unintentionally I had read so may story books and books and periodicals in hindi as well as in english that I forget to keep a count of them. It was only after 6 years when I completed my graduation and left the town for doing post graduation on a very good scholarship that I found that I have almost read the whole library barring a few english literature books and poetry books.

    The result was fantastic. I was ready to participate in any discussion. I could prove very easily that God is there or God is not there. Give me a topic and I will tell you something interesting. I was ready to discuss anything from history to astronomy. How did it happen? I was amazed with myself.

    After doing my post graduation, I found that the job condition was very tight and I was wandering here and there. My interview was always good. It had to be. The library was sitting there in the upper storey of my mind. But I did not get a job.

    It was very sad and hurting and I thought to change my line and try other jobs which were not in my core area. I tried to apply but failed miserably in the interview. Those subjects were alien to me. I soon came to know that what I learned in my life from that library was a drop from the ocean of the knowledge.

    There are so many drops in the ocean of knowledge, in fact more than billions, but we have taken a few of them and rest is there only.

    Knowledge is power.

    The sky is the limit. Beginners or experts are terms that are used by professionals or students. In general, when somebody starts to learn a particular subject/topic we say she/he is a beginner and when the person earns a particular degree or attains a particular position in the profession we call her/him an expert. That doesn't mean the expert knows everything about a particular subject. Even nobody claims to know everything about any topic.

    The quest for knowledge starts with asking questions and it stops when you stop asking questions and never bother to look for answers for your doubts. The more you ask and interested to know things, the more knowledge you will gain. Remember, do not ask questions just for the sake of asking. Ask questions to quench the thirst of knowledge and then I am sure you will definitely gain.

    Version can be expire in any thing but knowledge will never expire , term version means style of presentation can be different but meaning will be same . Gaining more and more means you are increasing your value if you have good knowledge then people can not cheat you. People only can cheat if you do not know anything.

    You can be expert but not be mastered in anything. Everyday in our daily life we learn something or other. So, knowledge has not limit. But yes, how you take your knowledge within you is up to you. You should be humble if you are knowledgeable and you have to give a place of kinder-garden kind of people too in the society. You should not feel pride of your knowledge and look other as a waste. Being knowledgeable is not a big thing but how you behave it in the society is the matter.

    My reply is in two parts because there are two different questions linked in this thread.

    Firstly,the limit of knowledge would be infinity because there is a vast amount of data on various aspects of our lives, our history, our planets etc. It is so vast that it would take many lifetimes for anyone to even glance it. As I am typing this response, new information is added, new knowledge is being generated. This is again endless. So, in short, knowledge limits are set at infinity. We can just about scrape the outer layer.

    Secondly what you have classified as beginner, medium and experts apply to a particular small minuscule area in the world wide pool of knowledge. For instance one may has spent his entire career in studying elephant and would be called as an expert in elephant behaviour and other issues. Similar based on the experience and time spent in that sector one would be labelled as a novice etc.

    Once a person came to Mahavira Ji and asked him if he had gained all the knowledge in the world as he had achieved salvation. Mahavira Ji replied that on a path filled with trees, as you go forward, you will step on a few leaves but even as hard as you try, you cannot really step on all the leaves. Similar is the extent of knowledge.

    Knowledge has really no limits!

    Santhosh, would it be fine if I say that knowledge is knowing that you don't have knowledge? And that revelation must lead to corrections? Knowledge is to keep on learning.
