“Knowledge is like climbing a mountain; the higher you reach, the more you can see and appreciate.”

When I first read this quote, I immediately wanted to change the word “knowledge” to “wisdom.” After all, most of us have images of wise prophets and sages living on mountaintops, bequeathing us mere mortals below with the wisdom of the ages. However, the pursuit and acquisition of knowledge is still part of the process.
Consider replying with your definitions of “knowledge” and “wisdom,” and how they are related.
What new sights have you been able to see and appreciate during your climb to the top?
