A tale of two

Wisdom is from knowledge
education experience

Or bits into information into data
into big data into knowledge
into wisdom and if really wise
into a TED talk
and a guest appearance
on a late night talk show
so the world will listen
and you become famous
and wise in your own eyes,
at least, clever in your own heart,
at least, you sow and you reap
the world

bits do not equal wisdom

wisdom: pure peaceful
gentle considerate submissive
merciful fair impartial
sincere and it is sown;
the farmer harvests so that
we eat, nourished.
