Here is my essay after I made a few corrections that bobpursley pointed out. please, if there are still mistakes, tell me exactly how to fix them.

There are some people who believe that true wisdom is knowledge; the more knowledgeable a person, the more wise he or she is. It is understandable why people agree with this because knowledge and wisdom have a very close definition; knowledge is acquaintance with facts or truth, wisdom is knowledge of what is true or right. A comparison of this is with the belief of just the opposite, that wisdom and knowledge are not related. There is a famous quote that says, “Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living; the other helps you make a life.” With this quote, and the above examples, one can decide on which meaning of wisdom is true for them.

also, help me come up with a better last sentence.
thanks
