    Does anyone else beside sages provide wisdom and inspiration?

    The way I remember this subject:

    hypothetical statement - if a cow, then a mammal

    converse - if mammal, then a cow (not necessarily true)

    inverse - if not a cow, then not a mammal (not necessarily true)

    contrapositive - if not a mammal, then not a cow (true)

    now here
    statement - if sage, then wisdom
    converse - if wisdom, then sage (not necessarily true) (this is it!)
    inverse - if not sage, then not wisdom (not necessarily true)
    contrapositive - if not wisdom, then not sage (true)

    Here we have the converse, so not necessarily true.
