He who holds his tongue is wise.

Better to be silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.
People who know the least always seem to know it the loudest. —Andy Capp
Spilling your guts is just exactly as charming as it sounds. —Fran Lebowitz
Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier’n puttin’ it back. —Will Rogers
The shallowest mind can be a master at criticism. —Reuel Lemmons
The person who sings his own praises is likely to be a soloist. —Author unknown
The person who toots his own horn is always off key. —Edwin White
We have the right to remain silent;
a right we should exercise more often.
