Wisdom and Knowledge are not the Same

Wisdom does not spring from knowledge, but through observation. Knowledge is dead without application. Wisdom, however, can be imparted from experience.
The example of the sage teaches more than the contents of a thousand books.
Wisdom always listens whilst knowledge only speaks.
The wise man is a fool in the scholar’s eyes, but only because the wise man does not boast of his intellect. On the other hand, scholars abound and speak only what another has already discovered.
The sage knows little, but he understands vastly. He isn’t abreast with the teachings of scholarly level, but he cares more for his neighbors’ lives than for his own.
