Being wise beyond your years can be taken as insulting to others. You may as well pretend to be stupid.

In simple terms...

Wisdom is the proper application of knowledge attained through experience

just means the person is more mature, why'd you want to act stupid anyway, and pretend to be something you're not?

I prefer knowledge. I'm not that 'wise' in the traditional sense, mostly because I'm stubborn and impatient as all hell when I don't get my way. Does wisdom have value? You better believe it, it's just harder to obtain then knowledge. A lot of what Ardorm said is valid. We're in the technological age, what with yahoo answer and wikis it's hardly a challenge to find information on most subjects.



Our age is primarily going to be seen as one of information. We are technological but the evolutionary factor that drives off of technology is how we obtain and process information far diffierently than at any other point in human history. Information being an almost unlimited resource to pull from the internet whenever you need it.

Asassin with knowledge hides in shadow and kills. He does so but is not aware that his contract is a fake, and that when he leaves he will cramp under pressure due to an unforeen and unfamiliar change in setting.

Assassin with wisdom hides in shadow and kills. He does so after taking a contract he confirms to be legit. And when he leaves, he does so with confidence that all has been considered, and any unexpected change can be delt with by prior "experience" in adapting through the application of knowledge to outwit the foes.

Neither does knowledge, math, physics, or philosophy. Morals don't exist either. If you want to follow that road, then you may as well slap a big fat arbitrary label on everything, including your own brain, which humanity has never been so sure as to prove it's own awareness to another.

It works when your surroundings act just the same way.

They wish they could be different, and escape their chains of commitment to untrustworthy things.

In a sense. Rather, it is what I see in others.
