Gossip

I went to the thrift store the other day and found this little book for only 50 cents called, Jewels of Thought. I found some great little quotes on Gossip. They are short but to the point. I really like them:

These are all by unknown authors...

"It is better to say something good about a bad man, than to say something bad about a good man."

"Beware of your tounge, for it is in a wet place, and can slip often."

"Mud thrown is ground lost- and leaves your hands filthy."

"When a bee stings, it dies. It cannot sting and live. When men [or women] sting, their better selves die. Every sting kills a better instinct. Men [and women] must not turn [or be like] bees and kill themselves in stinging others."

"Always know what you are talking about, but don't always talk about what you know."

"Two things are bad for the heart- running upstairs and running down people."

"Remember- if you must give expression of Prejudice, Attitude and Intolerance- do not speak it but write it. Write it in the sands.... by the water's edge."

May we all strive (including myself) to look for the good in others, to be a little kinder and be careful the things we say.
God bless you,
Alicia
