Knowledge Or Wisdom
“When you care to learn and use a good knowledge it could turn into wisdom. It is cumulative and the day would come when you’ll discover you are being more empowered in your logic, good judgment and overall thinking, which result is being acknowledged as a wisdom.”
Knowledge or Wisdom
Hello, dear readers!
Here I present a few lines of wisdom. There are not in any specific order or anything like that, perhaps just clarifying some opinions on a difference between knowledge and wisdom.
I simply love quotes, as all who visit my site could see. I do consider quote a “short wisdom.”
Or let’s just say; in a least of words expression of opinion, life event, conclusion of thinking and of thinkers. Because there is no way ignorant person could ever create a quote. On a contrary he would most likely never grasp its sense.
I had a fun several times with a comments on some of my philosophical posts. I simply can’t resist responding to those, no matter how busy I am. And I make also point to visit that person’s site if available. It is almost hundred percent game site. So, here is an example:
Comment: “Now what we should think about that? I have no idea what it means.”
(excerpt) “Perhaps your question should be corrected. You most likely meant “I“, not “WE.” But you’ll have a great fun with your own site.
Well, this is life… still, my site is for readers and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again; you, all real readers and thinkers for visiting and for taking time to post your wonderful comments. You surely must know this is a fuel for me to go on, don’t you ;-)
With you in wisdom,
- “Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living;
the other helps you make a life.”
- Knowledge cuts up the world. Wisdom makes it whole.
- Before you become too entranced with gorgeous gadgets and mesmerizing video displays, let me remind you that information is not knowledge, knowledge is not wisdom, and wisdom is not foresight. Each grows out of the other, and we need them all.
Arthur C. Clarke
- These days people seek knowledge, not wisdom. Knowledge is of the past, wisdom is of the future.
- Knowledge is proud that he has learnt so much; Wisdom is humble that he knows no more.
- Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
T. S. Eliot
- Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification.
Martin H. Fischer
- It is said that for money you can have everything, but you cannot. You can buy food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; knowledge but not wisdom; glitter, but not beauty; fun, but not joy; acquaintances, but not friends; servants, but not faithfulness; leisure, but not peace. You can have the husk of everything for money, but not the kernel.
- Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.
- It is the province of knowledge to speak and it is the privilege of wisdom to listen.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
- Knowledge without wisdom may be soon discerned; it is usually curious and censorious. Thomas Manton
- Knowledge comes by taking things apart: analysis. But wisdom comes by putting things together…
- Knowledge is convertible into power… But knowledge itself is not Power. Wisdom is Power.
- To acquire knowledge, one must study; but to acquire wisdom, one must observe.
Marilyn von Savant
- Wisdom is perishable. Unlike information or knowledge, it cannot be stored in a computer or recorded in a book. It expires with each passing generation.
- Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.
Lord Alfred Tennyson
- Information is not knowledge. Knowledge is not wisdom. Wisdom is not truth. Truth is not beauty. Beauty is not love. Love is not music. Music is THE BEST.
- An open mind, like and open window, should be screened to keep the bugs out.
- The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.
- One fool can ask more questions in a minute than twelve wise men can answer in an hour.
- The power of thought, the magic of the mind.
- Except for our thoughts, there is nothing absolutely in our power.
- To repeat what others have said, requires education, to challenge it, requires brains.
