A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.Both snippets indicate about the same thing. Too often, our words cover up our true motivations and intentions. Sometimes, they expose them.
~ King James version ~
Those who know do not talk.
Those who talk do not know.
~ from Verse 56 of the Tao Te Ching ~
Another line from the Tao Te Ching comes to mind as well: More words count less. (from Verse 5)
