Just a personal observation. Perhaps the moderators may want to move this to off-topic. If so please feel free. Thank You moderators for the work you do. To be clever is to be able to be "witty" or come up with a statement on the spot that takes others off guard. People who are clever are observed posting on this forum in a rude way that is meant for personal benefit; to show others how smart they think they are. To be wise is to give advice based on experience; the advice is to benefit the other individual without judgment of that individual or others. Clever people will have an amount of cunning quality, the degree may vary, wise people will run only from the innocence platform. Clever is being able to manipulate a post. Clever is twisting the meaning or context to appear wittier, smarter or better. Clever only thinks of himself and for short term gain. Clever thinks for self only. Wise is understanding the post-knowing the meaning behind the post. Wisdom implies pausing, thinking and understanding of context. Wise thinks for group at large and for long term. Wise thinks for all.
