What really makes a person is the state of their heart.
If a person has a wise heart; the person will be wise and if a person is foolish at heart; the person will be foolish.
Why is this? It is simply because everything starts from the heart.
Imagine having an object in its original state functioning the way it is supposed to. However as time goes on, you decide to place it next to a never ending burning candle which produces wax. As time goes on you can hardly recognise the object as it has been covered with wax. The only way to get the object back to its original purpose is to melt the wax. This analogy is figurative.
