Wisdom is the right use of knowledge

Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom. – Charles Spurgeon

You need knowledge to be wise, but having knowledge does not guarantee wisdom because the acquired knowledge must be used to make practical decisions for it to be referred to as wisdom. How then can one get wisdom? Experience is one way! However, there are many people who fail to learn even from experience! How about divine inspiration? Yes but we must agree that divine inspiration comes to those who are wise enough to take the time to desire and be attentive to such inspiration.
