Discretion of speech is more than eloquence; and to speak agreeably to him with whom we deal is more than to speak in good words or in good order.
-Francis Bacon, Of Discourse

The monster of advertisement...is a sort of octopus with innumerable tentacles. It throws out to right and left, in front and behind, its clammy arms, and gathers in, through its thousand little suckers, all the gossip and slander and praise afloat...
-Sarah Bernhardt

He who discommendeth others obliquely commendeth himself.
-Sir Thomas Browne, Christian Morals, 1716

Gossip is a sort of smoke that comes from the dirty tobacco-pipes of those who diffuse it: it proves nothing but the bad taste of the smoker.
-George Eliot, Daniel Deronda, bk. 2, ch. 13, 1876

It's an indulgence to sit in a room and discuss your beliefs as if they were a juicy piece of gossip.
-Lillian Hellman, "Watch on the Rhine," act 2 [character Sara Muller]

“Have patience awhile; slanders are not long-lived. Truth is the child of time; erelong she shall appear to vindicate thee.”
-­Immanuel Kant

Live so that you wouldn’t be ashamed to sell the family parrot to the town gossip.
-Will Rogers

The only time people dislike gossip is when you gossip about them.
-Will Rogers

Gossip is the art of saying nothing in a way that leaves practically nothing unsaid.
-Walter Winchell
