If you whisper, everyone wants to know what you’re saying.
If you have a secret you want told, say it as loud and surrounded with as many lies and half-truths as possible. Then when someone hears it, they won’t care what you have to say at all.
Nothing is more obvious than a carefully protected secret, and nothing arouses curiosity more than a mystery.
Be as open and public-minded as possible at all times. This is how you stay a private person, and most importantly, how you stay free.
