The Wisdom of Silence

Harper Lee is, at the same time, one of the most loved and most reclusive authors, but she broke her silence on Tuesday when she was guest of honour at a ceremony inducting four new members into the Alabama Academy of Honour, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

She offered a piece of advice that won her a standing ovation (and which many of the folks I know could take to heart!).

Well it's better to be silent than to be a fool.

But then again, Harper Lee's only written one book right ? what would the world be if we we all silent ? there'd not be any books, all the movies would have no music or speech, radios (and radio stations) would not exist... :)
