syllogisms and sayings


If "good things come to those who wait" and
"the early bird gets the worm", can it be understood that
a worm is not a good thing? (Ans. No!)

Similarly for "out of sight, out of mind" and "distance
makes the heart grow fonder" -- should we believe that
one can be fonder of that which one thinks not of? (Ans. [Conj.]
Only in some universes; and in any event, the converse need not hold.)

(Just some examples for fun: someone may want to make a broader
study of these matters at some point...)
