Knowledge and Wisdom, far from being one,
Have oftimes no connexion. Knowledge dwells
In heads replete with thoughts of other men ;
Wisdom in minds attentive to their own,
Knowledge is proud that he has learned so much ;
Wisdom is humble that he knows no more.
Wisdom, unlike all else we seek on earth,
Is never sought in vain.
