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 Haddon Spurgeon

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, commonly C.H. Spurgeon, (June 19, 1834 - January 31, 1892) was a British Reformed Baptist preacher who remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations, among whom he is still known as the "Prince of Preachers." He also founded the charity organization now known as Spurgeon's, that works worldwide with families and children, as well as a famous theological college which after his death was called after him: Spurgeon's College

    الحكمة هي الاستخدام الصحيح للمعرفة. لنعرف أنه ليس من الحكمة. كثير من الرجال يعرفون الكثير ، وهم جميع الحمقى الأكبر لذلك. لا يوجد أحمق حتى أحمق كبير باعتباره أحمق يعرف. لكن معرفة كيفية استخدام المعرفة هو الحصول على الحكمة.

    la sagesse est le bon usage de la connaissance. savoir, ce n'est pas être sage. beaucoup d'hommes savent beaucoup de choses et en sont tous les plus fous. il n'y a pas de fou aussi grand qu'un fou qui connaisse. mais savoir utiliser la connaissance, c'est avoir de la sagesse.

    kebijaksanaan adalah penggunaan pengetahuan yang benar. mengetahui bukanlah menjadi bijak. banyak orang yang mengetahui banyak hal, dan semuanya lebih bodoh karenanya. tidak ada orang bodoh yang begitu bodoh seperti orang bodoh yang mengetahui. tetapi mengetahui bagaimana menggunakan pengetahuan berarti memiliki kebijaksanaan.

    înțelepciunea este folosirea corectă a cunoașterii. a ști nu înseamnă a fi înțelept. mulți oameni știu foarte mult și sunt cu toții mai proști pentru asta. nu există un prost atât de mare ca un prost cunoscător. dar a ști să folosești cunoștințele înseamnă a avea înțelepciune.
