Knowledge and Wisdom A poet Alfred Lord Tennyson once said Knowledge comes but wisdom lingers In never heard of him or his saying but I do not totally agree with what he said I believe you have to understand what the words actually mean first Knowledge means a range of information or understanding While wisdom means the quality of being wise good judgment It also means learning knowledge so I wonder what Lord Tennyson meant by his quote Knowledge come but wisdom lingers Maybe he meant that knowledge is something that just comes to you either in teachings or naturally and wisdom will still be there after your gone But if wisdom is knowledge learned Then the correct way to see it as knowledge is there for you to use it and if you use it will become wisdom But maybe some knowledge should not be considered wisdom Just think if someone had the knowledge of being a serial killer or a person that knows how to make nuclear weapons would you call that wisdom If so would you want that kind of wisdom to linger on People need to separate what they want to call knowledge because if knowledge is wisdom then what kind of wisdom would you want to linger on for your children to learn Since I have begun to write this essay I really did not know what to write Would you say I am lacking knowledge or wisdom on this subject I just cant write very well about something I do not know much about But I am not lacking the knowledge or wisdom because I have the knowledge to realize that I do not know something so that make me have wisdom that people should want to linger on I know that in my life I have learned a lot of things Some of them I might say is knowledge that should become wisdom and linger on
