What is the difference between intelligence and wisdom?

Wisdom is the mother of two sisters – knowledge and intelligence.

Intelligence is the younger sister, she interprets quickly, moves swiftly and is more equipped in tackling short term situations.

Knowledge is the elder sister, she interprets slowly, moves slowly and is more equipped in tackling long term situations.

Both the sisters play with each other, each teaching the other one some lessons. Then both of them go to their mother, who tells them that whatever they learn and do now is childish play, because they are not where she is now. One day, both of them shall come where she is.

Knowledge and Intelligence are proud that they know so much. Wisdom is humble that she knows no more.
