    Being able to understand and use a small amount of knowledge is more important than merely "having" a large amount.

    But to have knowledge, one must understand it. Otherwise you don't have it.

    Some people know that e = mc^2 (or at least they think they do). You can know this without understanding what it means. Similarly you can know an infinite number of facts without being to understand them, thus making them useless.

    not always, you can learn things without knowing the reason behind it. yes i do agree to some extent to what you're saying, but you can also understand that sometimes (like in accounts with me) just learn the format ofhow it looks and volia, your chillin. but i do agree that if you understand what you learn, its more likely to stick in your head longer than if you just learn it off my heart without understanding the concepts
