Oh, Jimi... really?

Knowledge speaks,

but wisdom listens.

Jimi Hendrix

The funny thing is that I know people who speak with knowledge and then don't listen to themselves. That's the really odd thing. The people that know all the right things to say and then just don't do them. Odd, funny? Funny, ha-ha? Or just plain sad? I don't know. I try to listen to other people and then reflect on that before I speak. Sometimes I need to clarify or talk it out to make the most of something someone has said. I think maybe wisdom comes after you listen, reflect, learn, and act. I wouldn't know though.
