    The Difference Between Wisdom And Knowledge

    A Professor

    holds up a matchbook. He asks the class what it is. "A matchbook!" immediate response. "Wrong!" he says. That is only a sound. "Now, what is it?" No one knows, so he throws it at them. "That's what it is!"

    And I don't separate this into graduates

    or not. Anyone with a keen interest and a good memory can get a degree. Wise is being able to use these facts for betterment in any area. No wonder why "wise old men (rather sexist though!)" are revered!
