Gossip Quotes

"Facts or opinions which are to pass through the hands of so many, to be misconceived by folly in one, and ignorance in another, can hardly have much truth left." ~ Persuasion by Jane Austen "My own business always bores me to death. I prefer other people's." ~ Lady Windermere's Fan by Oscar Wilde For your popular rumour, unlike the rolling stone of the proverb, is one which gathers a deal of moss in its wanderings up and down. ~ The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens "Slander,
Whose edge is sharper than the sword, whose tongue
Outvenoms all the worms of Nile, whose breath,
Rides on the posting winds and doth belie
All corners of the world." ~ Cymbeline by William Shakespeare "People will forget almost any slander except one that's been fought." ~ The Magnificent Ambersons by Booth Tarkington "Gossip is never fatal, Georgie," he said, "until it is denied." ~ The Magnificent Ambersons by Booth Tarkington "Men's evil manners live in brass: their virtues
We write in water." ~ Henry VIII by William Shakespeare Grace Stepney's mind was like a kind of moral fly-paper, to which the buzzing items of gossip were drawn by a fatal attraction, and where they hung fast in the toils of an inexorable memory. ~ The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton There was a lady at Santarem--but my lips are sealed. It is the part of a gallant man to say nothing, though he may indicate that he could say a great deal. ~ The Crime of The Brigadier by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle The worst class of sum worked in the every-day world is cyphered by the diseased arithmeticians who are always in the rule of Subtraction as to the merits and successes of others, and never in Addition as to their own. ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
