Wisdom vs. Knowledge

3 11 2011

We get a little confused when we are asked the difference between wisdom and knowledge.

Knowledge (noun)

  1. Acquaintance with facts, truths, or principles, as from study or investigation; general erudition: knowledge of many things.

Wisdom (noun)

  1. The quality or state of being wise; knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action; sagacity, discernment, or insight.

It’s clearly shows the difference but yet we still fail to understand. So let us keep it simple.  Knowledge is the state of knowing. Wisdom is the state of using what you know to put into action or offer advice base from experience.

Knowledge will only bring you so far, where if you seek wisdom you become what you’ve learned. It is through wisdom where we practice what we preach.  Knowledge can exist with wisdom but wisdom cannot with knowledge. Wisdom is what separates those who become successful and live happier lives compares to those who live mediocre lives. Wisdom Knowledge helps you understand art. Wisdom helps you create art.  See the difference?
