Quote #252, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes blog quote #252...

"Keep quiet and people will think you a philosopher."
-Latin proverb-

There is an old saying that speaks of the quiet person.. they remain silent and appear very smart for when opening their mouth, they risk unmasking their intelligence.

I know of a businessman who everyone thought to be very wise. His strategy was very simple. At meetings, he remained deadly quiet, yet listened intensly. After everyone was done having their say, he would simply just repeat and summarize what others had said. People thought he was a genius when in reality he just regurgitated what was already said by others. Not a bad strategy.

That's my view....... What Say You?
