Knowledge vs. Wisdom

“Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.”

- Albert Einstein
  • Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens. 
  • Knowledge is to acquire; wisdom is to exhibit.
  • Knowledge is the ‘power’; wisdom is the exceptionally effective use of the power. 
  • Knowledge is not always proportional with wisdom, and being older won't guarantee one getting wiser. 
  • Knowledge is learned; wisdom is earned.
  • Knowledge is an inflow; wisdom is an outflow. 
  • Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. 
  • Knowledge is Information or experience; wisdom is an application of knowledge at the right time. 
  • Knowledge is input, and wisdom is the intelligence to make use of that input in the right manner. 
  • Knowledge is the truth, not falsehoods; wisdom is the ability to see the difference.
  • Knowledge is just like any useful, resourceful information available with you in your brain instead of in the books, pen, drive or some other form….acquired formally, informally, generally etc. Wisdom is the transformation of YOU into “A REAL YOURSELF” for which your knowledge may help you sometimes facilitates too, but you need to have an inner drive to demonstrate wisdom.
  • Knowledge is learned, it's in one’s mind.....Wisdom is felt, through Heart! You don’t have to have a heavy knowledge to be wise enough ! However, this does not mean that a knowledgeable person will not have wisdom. Wisdom comes with inner instinct! 
  • The most stupid thing a man can think of is to think that he knows everything.
    - Jared Nyairo Onduso
