Plato might not have had many friends

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.
