that's a nice one. i bet you got that out of experience.

In my database the author of this quotation is Mark Twain. The exact quotation reads: "
It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt."
i love this quote
I have been told that Abe Lincoln said this. Besides that is not the exact wording, thus it's not a quote.
It's okay, I forgive you.
This once.
Levek is correct. This quote is from mark twain rather than who ever you stated it was. you are incorrect. sorry tobe the one to point it out.
