A wise owl lived in an oak;

The more he saw the less he spoke;

The less he spoke the more he heard.

Why can’t we all be like that wise old bird?

………..

This is believed to be an old  rhyme though not found before the First World War.

It was quoted by the American John. D. Rockefeller, September 1915
