Difference between wisdom and knowledge

“I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.”  Leonardo da Vinci

What is the difference between wisdom and knowledge?

Scholar v’s entrepreneur
The scholar studies for an academic qualification called a Master of Business Administration (MBA or M.B.A.) which is the study of business administration, they pass with the highest mark possible, but they have never run a business.  A person leaves school with no qualifications, they become an entrepreneur, suffering over ten years numerous business failures and error, but then in their tenth year run a stable and growing business.  

Who should I employ: scholar or entrepreneur?
Question, if I start a new business venture, who am I likely to employ, the scholar or the entrepreneur? Answer, the entrepreneur.  I prize wisdom more highly than knowledge, the entrepreneur has gained abundant wisdom through experience and action; the entrepreneur may have no knowledge of the theory of selling, but they are an expert on selling because they “know” about selling through experiential doing.  Knowledge is nice to have but the scholar has no way of knowing how to match knowledge to situations because they have never actively applied knowledge through experiential doing.

Wisdom can never be taught, only gained through experiential doing.
All Satanism on the internet is knowledge.  There is no way of knowing if the Satanist who writes about Satanic theory on the internet is merely a scholar or one who is wise through the experiential doing of Satanism in their everyday lives.  When I write about my ideas on Satanism on this blog I occasionally am challenged to prove it; I refuse to validate my ideas because I “know” through experiential doing what works and what fails.  The only way that the individual can know the truth of what I write is for them to get off their bum and do it.  No amount of verbosity will validate an idea to an individual who has never experientially done it, for they have only knowledge but no wisdom.  Wisdom can never be taught, shown or given, it is down to the individual to discover for themselves the truth of knowledge through its experiential application.  I have no time to waste on the lazy, ignorant and stupid, which are all marks of those with no wisdom, even if they can present an impressive Satanic verbal construct of knowledge on an internet forum.
