The Principles of GossipAuthor Catherine Pulsifer
Gossip is the greatest abuse and waste of time and energy. Everyone adds on his or her own personal bias, interpretation, and bitterness.
A Child's Game
We used to play a children's game where we all sat in a circle and one person would whisper a sentence to the next person. By the time it was repeated again to the first person, the sentence was completely different! Gossip is based on the same principle.
As Mom Use To Say
People who spend their time finding fault or gossiping about others, are certainly not the kind of people you want as friends. Gossip is usually never the truth. And it is only one side, and as we all know there are two sides to every story.
Those who gossip to you may also gossip about you. My Mother use to say, "If you can't say anything positive about someone, don't say anything."
Nothing productive is ever achieved as a result of spreading, or listening to gossip. Don't waste your time! You can make more productive use of it.
There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, that it hardly becomes any of us to talk about the rest of us.
Edward Wallis Hoch
When you throw dirt, you lose ground.
Two things are bad for the heart - running up stairs and running down people.
A rumor without a leg to stand on will get around some other way.
What some invent, the rest enlarge.
Rumor travels faster, but it don't stay put as long as truth.
