The Difference Between Knowledge And Wisdom.

Found this little Gem in the Text Talk section of the Letters pages in The Melbourne Herald Sun on July 8th. It simply states that” knowledge is knowing that tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to put it fruit salad.”
Thanks Clinton from Hawthorn for that brilliant illustration. Although very simple I found this illustration very illumination, because it shows that just having knowledge is simply not enough. No. You also need to the wisdom to know how to use, or as in the above case, not to use that knowledge.
So today’s question for you is, what current knowledge do you have, that you still need the proper wisdom of, in regard to its appropriate, if not proper, usage?
