Aphorism: Government, Like Children.

Government, like children, should be seldom seen, and never heard.
(medieval origin, old when first recorded.: Augustinian clergyman, circa 1450: “Hyt ys old Englysch sawe: A mayde schuld be seen, but not herd.”  “A young woman should be seen but not heard”.  19th century: “Children should be seldom seen, and never heard.”)
