Yes, the latter requires the former, but the former is (really) meaningless without the latter.
Meaningless I say!? (And you perhaps object?)

That’s something I am going to explore more in the days and weeks ahead – and will be writing about more.
Keep an eye out for future posts talking about how to apply wisdom.
