Knowledge vs Experience

Your knowledge on any subject can be greater than your experience but experience will always reveal the flaws in your knowledge.

    I appreciate the witty observations of James and can't agree more with him! But much of our world knowledge is acquired through a very long process of nurture, a majority part of which comes from schooling and extensive reading, viewing, and listening. Our knowledge on a certain subject is surely greater than our own experience since we learn from others' experience. But that knowledge we acquired is from others' perspective and our experience helps redefine and customize what we know and take as golden rules. There is a need for us to let our critical thinking kick in and make the knowledge more applicable to ourselves!

    It's the integration of knowledge and experience that fuels your passions and curiosity. Nice hearing from you.
