Wisdom is a word.
It means what you want it too.
Most humans associate this word with things like experience and knowledge.
I personally think it means a combination of how you use the information at
hand. Saying ive heard related to this word: "to old to fast, to wise to slow"

One person's wisdom is another person's delusion. Or joke. Or folly.

Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart once said about pornography, "I can't define it, but I know it when I see it."

I heard these two which I thought were quite good:

The wise speak because they have something to say,
Fools speak because they have to say something.

Doubt is the prerequisite to knowledge,
and wisdom is in the Hall of Knowledge
Between the pillars of Judgment and Curiosity.

intelligence is knowing the 'whats' of a situation. wisdom is knowing the 'whys' of ones actions.

Wisdom comes from the Infinitely Great God. Knowledge and information comes from humans.

Wisdom is the beneficial application of knowledge. Like so many things it can be seen as possitive or negative depending on ones point of view. Wisdom can just as easily be seen as devious with a turn of the hat.
