My Philosophy

Standard

I’ve always wondered what the fundamental differences are of the terms knowledge, intelligence, and wisdom. I did some research and came up with my own definitions.

Knowledge is the accumulation of general information that has been learned or acquired through experiences.

Intelligence is a deep understanding or insight of how something works and the ability to apply the knowledge and analyze and solve problems.

Wisdom is the ability to discern right from wrong, truth from falsehood, and good from evil. It’s about intuition, perspective, and common sense.

He Who Knows

Standard

               He who knows not and knows not that he knows not is a fool. Shun him.

            He who knows not and knows that he knows not is a child. Teach him.

     He who knows and knows not that he knows is asleep. Wake him.

He who knows and knows that he knows is wise. Listen to him.
