A lot of people use the quote and attribute it to Plato, but no source.
I have major doubts that he ever said it or wrote it.

Plato said,
"You can learn more about a person in an hour of play than in a life-time of conversation."

"You can learn more about an individual during an hour of play than in a year of conversation." - Plato

"You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation." - Plato

We can learn more in an hour of play than we can in a lifetime of work. - Plato

Why do I doubt that Plato ever said that? For one thing, every word of his that comes down to us is written in the form of a conversation!
