„Watch a man at play for an hour and you can learn more about him than in talking to him for a year.“

—  Platón Classical Greek philosopher -427 - -347 a.C.
Attributed to Plato in Confidence : How to Succeed at Being Yourself (1987) by Alan Loy McGinnis, this is probably a paraphrase of a statement which occurs in Letter of Advice to a Young Gentleman Leaving the University Concerning His Behaviour and Conversation in the World (1907) by Richard Lindgard: "Take heed of playing often or deep at Dice and Games of Chance, for that is more chargeable than the seven deadly sins; yet you may allow yourself a certain easie Sum to spend at Play, to gratifie Friends, and pass over the Winter Nights, and that will make you indifferent for the Event. If you would read a man’s Disposition, see him Game; you will then learn more of him in one hour, than in seven Years Conversation, and little Wagers will try him as soon as great Stakes, for then he is off his Guard." Variants: You can learn more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation. Attributed to Plato in Food Is the Frosting-Company Is the Cake (2007) by Maggie Marshall You learn more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.
