Short Link to this Quote:

[collapse]

 

In this quote, Harold Smith is drawing a humorous comparison between advice from psychiatrists and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Psychiatrists recommend openly sharing one’s thoughts and feelings for mental well-being.

Similarly, the IRS implicitly advises against “keeping too much to [oneself]” by auditing tax returns and requiring documentation of income sources. Smith is wittily suggesting the IRS has a vested interest, like psychiatrists, in people openly disclosing financial details.

The quote jokes that both want to prevent oversharing of money or inner experiences, with different motivations but the same effect of promoting transparency for the benefit of their respective domains.
