"It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt." — Abraham Lincoln

update: hmmm, then again, even though there are lots of pages that attribute this to Lincoln, it definitely has a Twain-ish ring to it. Unfortunately I am unable to find an authorative reference one way or another.

    Via Google and some secondary links, this has also been attributed to Voltaire, Samuel Johnson, Groucho Marx, Silvan Engel, Woodrow Wilson, Oscar Wilde, George Elliot, Confucius, Anonymous, and "an old Yiddish saying".

    However, apparently Samuel Johnson can be ruled out.

    Thanks. I was thinking Mark Twain, but couldn't find it.
      The quote is by Mark Twain but I'm not sure what the direct quote is.

[Corion]: Mwahahaha - it looks as if $work will soonish be looking for a programmer (not to be employed by IT) to maintain some code, partly by me. Maybe even in Perl.
[Corion]: The sad thing is (I guess) the pay won't be that great (at least for the people I know), and working as a programmer not in IT isn't a great position to be in...
