Knowledge and Wisdom, far from being one by William Cowper

Knowledge and Wisdom,far from being one,
Have oft-times no connexion.Knowledge dwells
In heads replete with thoughts of other men,
Wisdom in minds attentive to their own.
Knowledge,a rude,unprofitable mass,
The mere materials with which wisdom builds,
Till smoothed,and squared,and fitted to its place,
Does but encumber whom it seems to enrich.
Knowledge is proud that he has learned so much;
Wisdom is humble that he knows no more.
William Cowper
