They harm people to help themselves. As for wisdom, Carneades ‘wished us to see’ that the man who stays mum over copper, slave or house is not wise (sapiens) but smart (callidus et astutus). Dumb animals can be smart too. Wisdom is something else: it is intelligence applied either to doing good and right or to refraining from unsound words and deeds. That is why a wise man does not seek profit, but is sociable and generous, herein displaying his kinship with God. Finally there are the consequences of virtuous action to be considered.
