  2. The first is what galls me the most. I often open my mouth without thinking! The subject always reminds me of something my father often quoted (Confucious?): ‘Better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all possible doubt.’ 😀 I don’t adhere to this nearly often enough!

The result was not what I hoped for but at least it showed his true nature and intent. So I think I would have been better to stay quiet.
