This saying goes back farther than you might realize ;) Proverbs 17:28 "Even a fool is considered wise when he holds his peace; when he shuts his lips, he is considered perceptive."

 ;D that's where I got it from  ;D lots of good stuff in that book. its no wonder why they ban it from school. you wouldn't want any kids to be perversed by a book that says don't lie, steal, cheat, murder, and so on. that's a whole new topic.  ;D  thank you drive through!
