  • Knowledge is the awareness and understanding of facts, truths or information gained. - Wiki Wisdom is the ability to apply knowledge.
  • To me, the difference is this: Knowledge is knowing things like facts and information. It is what you know. Now, wisdom can be better at times. I see wisdom as: Using the knowledge you have to an advantage to yourself or others. You get wisdom through age, what is the right thing to do as opposed to the wrong. It shows more in age, because you have seen the world for a longer time, and understand more about it. You accumulate both through age.
  • Knowledge is but the messenger that calls you to wisdom, but it is not wisdom. One can gain knowledge, but one does not seek wisdom - one meets it when one often least expects it and recognizes it as kindred.

One cannot *learn* wisdom - one must awaken it.
