How can wisdom be gained?

"A wise person is made not born".
Is this true? Why?
If it is, how is wisdom accumulated? And why is it 'practical' ?

  • Oct 10 2012: Ah, Leo, it's all about experience. That's what it takes to gain wisdom. When you experience, you see new stuff and improve your senses, response and perceptions about the world around you. It's not necessary only old people are wise, you just have to go out into the world and see stuff for yourself because wisdom has no age - it's all in your head!
