Thomas Stearns Eliot OM (1888 - 1965), was a poet, essayist, publisher, playwright, literary critic and editor.
He could have no idea of the forthcoming information deluge that would be precipitated by the internet, and yet his words are prescient: "Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?"
Like Eliot, horses still operate according to pre-internet instincts. They need us to be wise and knowledgeable, not just (well-)informed.

I guess, we need to keep everything blacked between knowledge and wisdom. Some people have forgotten the importance of balancing everything, that's why we need to remind people about this matter. Being an intelligent person does not mean you are above everyone else. What you need to do is to have a wisdom because that will basically tell you what is right and what is wrong. I hope that we will always be reminded by the rich things to do.
