Deep waters run still

Whitesmoke's Writing Tool

We have all delighted at the sight and sound of a babbling brook. The foamy, silvery, bubbly water chuckles merrily over the pebbles. A deep pool is dark and mysterious. Perhaps fat trout lurk in its depth.

This is a simple, long used metaphor illustrating the different types of human mind. Some people chatter away and say very little. Other say little but convey a lot.

The chatterbox broadcasts every simple thought that occurs to them. The deeper person weighs ideas carefully and selects only the best. It is from them that we get "the fattest trout".
