lol! It's called the wise man covering his behind. How's this for contradictory: You can't get enough of a good thing (Western origin) You can get too much of a good thing (Eastern origin) But they mean the same thing, roughly.

The only time quotes played a part in my life was learning the stupid things for my English A Level, Shakespeare and Chaucer still haunt me now!

I used to keep a journal of quotes in my younger teen years... I still have it, but I don't read it as much. I peak into it from time to time and it's very comforting.
