Knowledge vs Wisdom


America is becoming so educated that ignorance will be a novelty. I will belong to the select few.  – Will Rogers

Knowledge is a pocketful of bricks, wisdom a pocketful of feathers. Knowledge is the 1000lb anchor that weighs around the necks of many. There is book smart and street smart. Of the two, I choose to be street smart. No one ever was beaten up by a pile of books. Obviously, the best is to combine the two in the right increments. With each passing day, discard a piece of knowledge, and your path will be lighter and easier. What good is spelling obscure words if you cannot learn from the sound of the rain falling on your roof?
