Wisdom versus knowledge


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


Wisdom is an intangible quality gained through our experiences in life that gives us the ability to make correct decisions and judgements.   Knowledge is only the awareness of the information.

 Who we are is a product of wisdom whereas what we do is a product of knowledge.  Character is simply who we are with character being defined by wisdom.  Character, then, can be passed on through the sharing of knowledge, experiences, ethics and values.
