“Knowledge isn’t free. You gotta pay attention”

"Knowledge isn’t free. You have to pay attention” is a saying that has been printed on many images. There are several variations of the saying, and authorship is unknown.

“Knowledge isn’t free. To gain it, you must pay attention” was posted on Twitter by Jason L Blair on March 31, 2009. “Knowledge is free. All you gotta do is pay attention” was posted on Twitter by Wu-Tang / Sunz Of Man HELLRAZAH MUSIC INC.✍🏾 on October 20, 2009. “Knowledge is free you just have to pay attention” was posted on Twitter by 𝑵𝒆𝒏𝒂 𝑳𝒖𝒗𝒗 on October 22, 2011. “knowledge is free you just gotta pay attention!” was posted on Twitter by @brianPeterkin on December 28, 2012.

The saying became popular in 2017. “Knowledge isn’t free you gotta pay attention!” was posted on Twitter by BottomLineEnt. on January 4, 2017. “Knowledge isn’t free you have to pay attention” was posted on Twitter by diator.the.photog later on January 4, 2017. “Knowledge isn’t free you have to pay attention!” was posted on Twitter by blakklife.com on January 8, 2017.

“#Knowledge isn’t free.. You have to pay attention! ~ Bob Marley” (also shown on a meme along with an image of Bob Marley) was posted on Twitter by Jasminka (and others) on February 22, 2017. There is no evidence that Jamaican singer, songwriter, and musician Bob Marley (1945-1981) ever said it. “Knowledge isn’t free.
