Chicken soup for the soul No 10

Chicken soup for the soul No 10

Here I am again....

Chapter 1

Remember Me?

My name is Gossip.
I have no respect for justice.
I maim without killing. I break hearts and ruin lives.
I am cunning, malicious, and gather strength with age.
The more I am quoted, the more I am believed.
I flourish at every level of society.
My victims are helpless. The cannot protect themselves against me because I have no name and no face.
To track me down is impossible. The harder you try, the more elusive I become.
I am nobody's friend.
Once I tarnish a reputation, it is never the same.
I topple governments and wreck marriages. I ruin careers and cause sleepless night, heartaches and indigestion. I spawn suspicion and generate grief. I make innocent people cry in their pillows.
Even my name hisses.
I am called GOSSIP. Office gossip--Shop gossip--Party gossip--Telephone gossip. I make headlines and headaches.
REMEMBER, before you repeat a story, ask yourself: is it true? is it fair? is it necessary?? If not, do not repeat it.
GREAT minds discuss ideas....Average minds discuss events....Shallow minds discuss people....Which are you?
