Synonyms of "Wise" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between wise and intelligent and smart and clever ?
A: That is tricky to explain, but they are all different ways of being good at thinking.

"Intelligent" and "smart" are very similar. They mean being good at learning and understanding complicated things. Solving math and logic problems, analyzing complex art, that kind of thing.
"Wise" is more about being good at making decisions and understanding people, and not being controlled by emotions. Usually older people are considered more wise than younger people.
"Clever" is like "intelligent" and "smart", but it is more about thinking quickly, and solving problems in new and unusual ways.

Maturity is about age, like adulthood. It can also mean acting like you’re as smart as a grown up. OR that you look like a grown-up .

Q: What is the difference between wise and sage ?
A: Hi, there is no real difference between these words, in fact Sage is a corruption of the Latin word meaning Wise, so historically they are literally the same word. However we use them a little differently. Wise is a simple adjective, eg a Wise man. Sage (which is also a type of herb just to confuse you) can be a noun, but wise can't. A sage is a guru, a wise man who is very judicious. So "sage' advice can mean the cautionary advice from a sage (a wise man). So I might say thanks to the sage advice if my teacher, I did not send the email. Wise work work here but wouldn't sound as good.
Q: What is the difference between wise and sage ?
A: @dasha138513 Right, as an adjective they are basically the same, but you could also use “sage” as a noun to mean “a person who is wise”.

Adjective Example:
If you want sage/wise advise about life, you should probably ask someone older because they have more life experience.

Noun example:
