Quote of the Day

Lawrence G. Lovasik
Gossip can be entertaining: occasionally, I've heard the most fascinating things about myself I never knew.
People gossip. People are insecure, so they talk about other people so that they won't be talked about. They point out flaws in other people to make them feel good about themselves. I think at any age or any social class, that's present.

P. J. O'Rourke
Gossip needn't be false to be evil - there's a lot of truth that shouldn't be passed around.
Frank A. Clark

Back in my days as a children's book editor, my superiors caught on to the fact that teenagers were using the Internet to gossip about each other, and thought it might be nifty to develop a series of books about an anonymous high-school blogger who gossips about her classmates.

Don Miguel Ruiz
