Empty vessels make the most sound

Posted by George on September 26, 2005

I just checked your site for the phrase "empty vessels make the most sound". Whoever suggested the answer must have English as a second language, because the correct meaning is that that those people who have the least knowledge (empty) either speak at length to cover their ignorance, or speak most knowingly without realising their lack of knowledge. Either way they make the most sound.
