Long time reader, first time commentor. You omitted a more recent knowledge quote; Donald Rumsfeld who once testified "We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns -- the ones we don't know we don't know."
Giuliano Chicco
