On the difference between knowledge and wisdom

As the late Miles Kington put it (I paraphrase; original in the heading link...)
  • Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit...
  • Wisdom is knowing better than to put it in a fruit salad.
(Thanks to "Quote ... Unquote" on BBC Radio 4; I can't get at it to link at the moment.)
