It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool..."

"It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt." Attributed to Mark Twain, Abraham Lincoln, and so many more.

"...there is nothing diviner about a king than there is about a tramp, after all. He is just a cheap and hollow artificiality when you don't know he is a king. But reveal his quality, and dear me, it takes your breath away to look at him. I reckon we are all fools. Born so, no doubt."
- A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court
