Scuttlebutt is one of the most overlooked acts that can decrease one’s sagacity
A powerful truth is that if we love the Lord, love His Word, love His people, and love one another, we won’t want to gossip.
Men’s tongues in some things outrun women’s.
The most reliable topic for small talk is the goings-on of stars whether they’re rising or falling, and whether nor not a particular story is truth or fiction. This is way out of balance. It invades the privacy of men and women who didn’t give up being human when they became famous, and it negates the meaning inherent in our own lives. (300)
And though there’s a grain of truth in every rumor, I’ve found that the worst gossip usually starts with something harmless.
Rather than swallowing our pride and simply asking what we do not know, we choose to fill in the blanks ourselves and later become humbled. Wisdom was often, in its youth, proven foolish, and ones humiliated were meant to become wise.
Gossip is a policeman and a teacher. Without it, there would be chaos and ignorance.
I give boring people something to discuss over corn.
Mud Slinging is so much fun,when you do it to others. But remember the day someone else does the same to you,youll realise how bad the mud in your mouth tastes. Think twice before you go around ruining the reputation of others. Because what goes around comes around for sure.
But you know that any showing of such an innovation is apt to start gossip. Just why, I don’t know. It, though, is a trait of Mankind only. Animals don’t ‘bloom’ out so abruptly. You can hunt through Biology, Zoology or any similar study, and find but slow, -awfully slow,- adaptations toward any form of variation. Hurrying was not known until Man got around.
