Should I or shouldn’t I?
(This is what “In the Business” is called a teaser)
Oh, and today’s quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson is something I’ve noticed myself.
“The louder he talked of his honour, the faster we counted our spoons.”
Later:- Some people didn’t get the quote, so I’ll elaborate. The man R.W. Emerson is talking about is, atleast figuratively, a guest in their house. The more heÂ called himself “honest”, the more they checked whether he had nicked their (silver) spoons by counting them. This means that the more a
man person claims to be honest, the more wary of that person you should be. Shakespeare has a similar “The lady doth protest too much, methinks” where Queen Gertrude (Hamlet) repeats how much she loves the King.
