Secretly, the wise man and the fool both have the same number of thoughts on occasion. But the wise man (in his wisdom), realizes that all thoughts are not meant to be spoken.
Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.
The wise men realize that thoughts that help others through being said are the only thoughts that should generally be shared. Be they funny or intelligent thoughts.
Incomplete thoughts, and those that do nothing but try to inflate your own ego have no place in the wise-man’s mouth. Leave those to the fools, and let only wonder be uttered from your lips.
Be wise. Speak less; speak better.
