Knowledge and wisdom

To acquire knowledge, one must study;

but to acquire wisdom, one must observe.

--- Marilyn vos Savant

The goal of learning is to acquire knowledge and acquire wisdom.
The work we put into study helps us acquire knowledge, the work we put into observation helps us to acquire wisdom!

To observe, is not just to look at things outside and around us, but also the mind and the soul within ourselves!
