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 12 2012: 50 comments! Yay! I really like your thoughts and ideas, TEDies.
    However, I noticed most of the comments here are smart yet complicated to the degree of having an average of 10 letters per word. I would like to pose a challenge.

    Challenge: Write a definition of 'wisdom' in a single sentence. Each word is not allowed to have more than four syllables.

    Enjoy.
