“Oysters open completely when the moon is full; and when the crab sees one it throws a piece of stone or seaweed into it and the oyster cannot close again so that it serves the crab for meat. Such is the fate of him who opens his mouth too much and thereby puts himself at the mercy of the listener.”
―Leonardo da Vinci
The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci, translated by Jean Paul Richter (1888), Volume 2, "XX. Humorous Writings"
“If pigs could vote, the man with the slop bucket would be elected swineherd every time, no matter how much slaughtering he did on the side.”
