El saber no ocupa lugar

How do we say in English " el saber no ocupa lugar"? In English.
We use it when somebody is very interested in learning new things. It means something like learning is free.

Knowledge is no burden

El saber no ocupa lugar (no importa cuanto sepas, siempre podrás saber más; lo que debas aprender en el futuro no es excusa para no aprender esto en el presente)
