What is the difference between knowledge and wisdom?

Knowledge is essential to wisdom. Think of knowledge as training in the craft of Food Preparation. Think of wisdom as how the chef combines those ingredients for dinner.

Knowledge is what you learn ( like on a subject).
Wisdom is more like on life or choices( strategy).
At least that's how I think of it.

To a certain extent this is purely a semantic inquiry. There is no single unified definition for these two terms, yet they are very complicated and deeply significant states with, granted, extremely different meanings. One might argue that knowledge is something a child can acquire but wisdom is the accumulation of knowledge over a lifetime, condensed and assimilated and reviewed many times over so as to convert this so-called knowledge into a state of mind and soul that cannot even be remotely compared to the definition of knowledge.

From some things I heard knowledge is smarts and intelligence, what you know, while wisdom is more skill in making choices.
