Every once in a while you run across a quotation that makes you stop and think. This is one like that for me:
“The man who can keep a secret may be wise, but he is not half as wise as the man who has no secrets to keep.” — E. W. Howe
Edgar Watson Howe, sometimes referred to as E. W. Howe, was an American novelist and newspaper and magazine editor in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He was perhaps best known for his magazine, E.W. Howe’s Monthly. Howe was well traveled and known for his sharp wit in his editorials.
