Question about Japanese

Are 賢明 or 聡明 good translations of "wise"?

There's a subtle difference between "smart" and "wise" in English. A wise person has learned from their experience, has good judgement, and has good intuition. A smart person can learn a lot, remember things well, do well on tests, etc.

Sometimes people say that a smart person wants knowledge, but a wise person wants truth. Is there a similar difference between 賢明 / 聡明 and 賢い?
