Knowledge and Wisdom


Knowledge is something you can get
By parrot learning and cramming your head
You can fill your head with something new every day
If you memorize the thing you want in earnest way

Wisdom is something you can't get
By parrot learning and cramming your head
You must think, reason and use the knowledge already learned
To convert it into the famous Wisdom.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
