When I mentioned this to my 14yo boy I thought I was being clever:
"you know, 600 years before Jesus was around, a guy called Plato said this:
'Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.'"
To which Edan replied:
"Gee I bet he had a lot of friends"
Which brings to mind a recent reflection of a prominent person (who doesn't know I heard of him saying this):
"it's better to be a likeable idiot [around some places] than an intelligent a*hole"
I'm sure that somewhere in between there is a way that works.
