"What is the difference between 'knowledge' and 'wisdom'?"

Perhaps experience.

    Perhaps experience.

    Evel Knievel probably knew more about jumping motorcycles than anyone else alive. Knowledge gained through copious experience. But was it wise to keep on doing it?


    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

      "Evel Knievel probably knew more about jumping motorcycles than anyone else alive. Knowledge gained through copious experience. But was it wise to keep on doing it?"

      Perhaps not, but it didn't kill him and I bet he got one hell of an adrenalin buzz doing it!

      He enjoyed it, got lots of money for it, got women interested in him in part because of it, and was willing to suffer the pain and trauma associated with it. Would it have been wise for him to stop doing so before he really wanted to stop? Can we really know the answer?

    Information is not Knowledge. Knowledge is not Wisdom. Wisdom is not Truth. Truth is not Beauty. Beauty is not Love. Love is not Music. Music is the best.
