Knowledge and Wisdom

From Weekly I/O#18

"Knowledge is discovered collectively, wisdom is rediscovered individually." - Naval


This reminds me of what Terry Crews talked about the difference between intelligence and wisdom in the book Tribe of Mentors.

Intelligence is different from wisdom. There're intelligent killers, but no wise ones. Intelligence is like following a GPS route into the water until you drown. Wisdom looks at the route, but when it takes a turn into the ocean, decides not to follow and finds a new and better way.

Therefore, we know that knowledge, intelligence, and wisdom are not always the same thing, and maybe rarely the same thing.
