Knowledge v. Wisdom

From A.Word.A.Day:

The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.
-Isaac Asimov, scientist and writer (1920-1992)

I would go even farther. The saddest aspect of life is that we are losing wisdom that previous generations took for granted.

I agree! I meet very intelagent people all the time but most of them lack wisdom.
