My Father-in-law gave me a little quote, or one anyway, and did not know the author or where it came from. If anyone can give any assistance with this would be great.

It goes something like the following except for my punctuations:

"I thought I knew that I knew what I thought,
and now I know what I thought I knew isn't
what I know I think I thought I knew . . ."
Author UnKnown

I like it, I also like the one by Mark Twain aka Samuel Clemens:

"It is always preferable to remain silent
and appear stupid than to speak up and
remove all doubt."

Excuse me, I do not know how to keep from removing the doubt,

Edited by NTxLS on last sentence above. I am not a very good writer either.

TIA, CU L8R,
NTxLS

Phaedrus,

Thank you for this reply, I did not expect it that rapidly. I have done searches for more info on it without any found.

Thank you,

CU L8R,
