Three May Keep a Secret if Two are Dead
Meaning and History
This famous idiom comes from Poor Richard’s Almanac in 1735, authored by budding statesman and publisher, Benjamin Franklin. "Three May Keep a Secret if Two are Dead" means that people should be careful who they confide in, as the more people they tell their secret to, the more likely it is to not stay a secret.
