I've certainly learned a thing or ten from knowing people in my life, but I would hope they wouldn't claim ownership of my wisdom.
Maybe not, but you'd be pretty offended if someone said "I've learned so much from knowing you! If only you had put it all in a book. Then I could have read the book and never had to waste time with you in person."
