Good morning all,
First of all I wish everyone in UK a pleasant Spring Bank Holiday and Memorial Day in US.
My choice of quotation today has come through a bird. A noisy, squawking magpie which suddenly rose up from the tree outside my apartment window and flew off complaining loudly about something of no consequence. My goodness they are quarrelling birds. We have lots in our neighbourhood and they compete with the gulls only to be the loudest. It interrupted some lovely birdsong I'd been listening to in the background.
Some people are like gulls and magpies. Never happier than when complaining loudly, often about nothing much.
So today I've chosen no other than Plato for my quotation, and I'm sure everyone will already know a version of the first few words of it. It's heard all over the place.
"An empty vessel makes the loudest sound, so they that have the least wit are the greatest babblers."
For a quotation to be so well known, and be used for so long, I think there may definitely be at least a grain of truth in it!
Enjoy your day!
