Be Impeccable With Your Word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
Don Miguel Ruiz
The only time people dislike gossip is when you gossip about them.
Gossip can be entertaining: occasionally, I’ve heard the most fascinating things about myself I never knew.
I know nothing more annoying when people I don’t know jump to conclusions on my person based on nothing but gossip or speculation.
Gossip is called gossip because it’s not always the truth.
Today’s gossip is tomorrow’s headline.
Ah, well, the truth is always one thing, but in a way it’s the other thing, the gossip, that counts. It shows where people’s hearts lie.
Gossip is the opiate of the oppressed.
Secrecy sets barriers between men, but at the same time offers the seductive temptation to break through the barriers by gossip or confession.
Gossip is hardly uplifting.
Gossip is when you hear something you like about someone you don’t.
Gossip is poison.
Gossip, even when it avoids the sexual, bears around it a faint flavor of the erotic.
Patricia Meyer Spacks
The only gossip I’m interested in is things from the Weekly World News – ‘Woman’s bra bursts, 11 injured’. That kind of thing.
