intellect vs. will; information vs. knowledge vs. wisdom/truth

The Wise Men "had only a rumor to go by. But it moved them to make that long journey. The scribes were much better informed, much better versed. They sat and studied the Scriptures like so many scholars, but it did not make them move. Who had the more truth? The three kings who followed a rumor, or the scribes who remained sitting with all their knowledge?" -- Kierkegaard

Intellect can be great, but the will is far more important. 
Information is fine; knowledge is better; wisdom & truth are best.
