Proverbs That Might Be True, pt. 1

I am going to start a new series of random aphorisms and proverbs that I either make up or hear from other untrustworthy sources. PLEASE give me feedback on these. If nothing else, they might be cool conversation starters. Here's the first one:

Silence is nine tenths of discretion, and discretion is nine tenths of prudence.
- Le sage, c'est moi

Silence is therefore 81% Prudence? I think it good!

Yes, but the more pertinent question in economic times like ours is, "At what rate does interest accrue on the prudence?"

There's not much interest in prudence nowadays.

I'm sorry, Luce. I will try to be more interested in the future ;-)

That would be the prudent thing, dear. :-P
