“Knowledge is speaking, wisdom is listening”

- Jimi Hendrix

A true play on words, indeed. 

Knowledge is speaking, literally. When you know, you speak on it. Those that don't know, don't. Fools speak on what they know nothing of.

In turn, Wisdom is listening. If one doesn't know, wouldn't it be wise to remain silent and learn? Yes, yup.

But put the two sentences together? When knowledge speaks, wisdom is listening. And vice versa. Wisdom speaks as knowledge listens.

The unbreakable cycle. What do you think?
