Where did the quote, "Knowledge is Power," originate? Francis Bacon used the phrase "Knowledge Itself is Power" in his Meditationes Sacrae dating to 1597, and Thomas Jefferson wrote, "Knolege is power" in several letters referring to the establishment of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia, in the early 19th century. Today the phrase has become ubiquitous as a reminder of the importance of education.
