Here's another good quote:
Would that we (and the rest of the blogosphere) took that advice more often...
"I have a talent for silence and brevity. I can keep silent when it seems best to do so, and when I speak I can, and do usually, quit when I am done. This talent, or these two talents, I have cultivated. Silence and concise, brief speaking have got me some laurels, and, I suspect, lost me some. No odds. Do what is natural to you, and you are sure to get all the recognition you are entitled to."
Rutherford B. Hayes, diary entry, Nov. 20, 1872
