Ch 08 On Rules For Conduct In Life - Maxim 58

Who interrupts the conversation of others that they may know his excellence, they will become acquainted only with the degree of his folly.

  An intelligent man will not give a reply
  Unless he be asked a question.
  Because though his words may be based on truth,
  His claim to veracity may be deemed impossible.
