So often we graduate members of our society to the top of the food chain for their knowledge. We grade resumes based on degrees earned in our Colleges and Universities. We also admire those with wisdom and appreciate their abilities to lead us.
But alas wisdom and knowledge are not the same. Recently in an online think tank, a fellow think tanker; Marv made this point and reminded us of a quote:."Too often we confuse wisdom with knowledge, forgetting that the antonym of wisdom is not ignorance, but folly.".
Indeed that quote contains wisdom in its self doesn't it? In fact one would have a tough time refuting it. However let me give it a try for you here today:.However; "Knowledge can become wisdom if you consider the knowledge of observational flows of how events unfold and how patterns align and/or how chaos, order, simplicity and complexity combine." Lance 3/2006.Wisdom may not be knowledge, but knowledge can become wisdom and if you are going to pick the best person for the job wouldn't you want someone who has a whole lot of both? If you are a human resource director or an admissions councelor, then perhaps this might be an important thing to consider? In any case consider all this in 2006..
