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. They cannot protect themselves against me becoz I have no name and no face.

To track me down is impossible. The harder you try, the more elusive I become.

I’m nobody’s friend.

Once I tarnish a reputation, it is never the same. I topple government and wreck marriages. I ruin careers sleepless nights, 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.
