According to Wikipedia, “Still waters run deep is a proverb of Latin origin now commonly taken to mean that a placid exterior hides a passionate or subtle nature. Formerly it also carried the warning that silent people are dangerous, as in Caesar’s summing up of Cassius in William Shakespeare‘s play Julius Caesar I.2.195–6: Yon Cassius hath a lean and hungry look. He thinks too much. Such men are dangerous.”
Whether others think me passionate, subtle, complex, a thinker or dangerous beneath this quiet exterior, I answer yes to all of those. The still waters run deep label has been applied to me since I was an extremely quiet child who would sometimes shock people with thoughts and actions that lay underneath the surface. Although I’m now in my 60s, my waters are still running deep. I hope you enjoy these musings on life.
