    Hey Tomas.. Nice to see you again ;)
    Yeah I have been to your blog, but I figured that I had to signup to make a comment.. But I will make an account soon, though I would advice you to make your comment option more accessible to your readers. Making a reader register to comment is not always encouraging for them ;)

    I will try to answer your question: “what does it mean in the concrete?”;

    What I wanted to express in this article is that knowledge is something which is acquired, nourished and understood differently by different people. Most of the things you do everyday, does contribute to it in a cerain sense..
    In the end, those lists of quotes shows that even the big guys, came up with different meanings and perception about knowledge. But they will all converge to one end product (if properly shaped) which is “wisdom”..

    I don’t know if I have rightly answered to your question, but let me know if you meant something else..

    Best Wishes,
    - Wakish -
