Better to Remain Silent and Be Thought a Fool than to Speak and Remove All Doubt
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. I have always thought that all men should be free; but if any should be slaves, it should be first those who desire it for themselves, and secondly, those who desire it for others. When I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally. I have now come to the conclusion never again to think of marrying, and for this reason; I can never be satisfied with anyone who would be blockhead enough to have me. Every man is said to have his peculiar ambition.
The phrasing is different, but I think these two statements express the same thought. When I mentioned this adage to a friend he claimed that it.
