Keep Your Mouth Shut

WWII Poster

The poster above might be a more modern version of this saying I found in a Civil War Era newspaper:

If you your lips would save from slips,
Five things observe with care;
Of whom you speak, to whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

Weekly Standard (Raleigh, North Carolina) 22 Apr 1863
