Knowledge vs Wisdom

“To attain knowledge, add things every day. To attain wisdom, remove things every day.” -Lao Tzu.

“Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.” -Albert Einstein

Yet here we are, I do a lot of reading and writing. Writing turns out to be reading for yourself and others. In my constant pursuit of output, I must realize that my relationship with the reader should have a time limit.

I don’t know how long, however long it takes I guess. If these words are to instill action then eventually I’ll be preaching to the choir and nobody needs to be told that they can do what they’re already doing.
