Wisdom

Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.
Immanuel Kant
German philosopher (1724 - 1804)

Men are wise in proportion, not to their experience, but to their capacity for experience.
James Boswell, Life of Samuel Johnson, 1791
Scottish author & biographer (1740 - 1795)

We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take us or spare us.
Marcel Proust
French novelist (1871 - 1922)

To acquire knowledge, one must study; but to acquire wisdom, one must observe.
Marilyn vos Savant
