Who said its better to be quiet and be thought of a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt?

Answer:
Sadly it wasn't King Solomon or even Wright's mother who came up with that, but rather Abraham Lincoln, who was paraphrasing Proverbs 17:28, which says, "Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding."

Happily, King Solomon wrote the book of Proverbs, so actually he did come up with this gem of wisdom that Abraham Lincoln paraphrased. "The Holy Bible" longest lasting best seller has all the answers to the challenges of life.
