Hello everyone ,
I  would be grateful if anyone tell if the following sentence is  grammatically  correct ?

"Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge ?"

Thank you to everyone will respond .Smile

It seems to be grammatically sound. I will add that English might prefer a passive where the �we � is collective, referring to the human race.   �Where is the wisdom that has been lost in knowledge? �

I think I know what it means.

I would use present perfec tthough:
"Where is the wisdom that we �ve lost in knowledge?"
