One of my favorites

I have no respect for justice.

I maim without killing.
I break hearts and ruin lives.

I am cunning and 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 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 wreak marriages.

I ruin careers and cause
sleepless nights,
heartache and indigestion.

I spawn suspicion and generate grief.

I make innocent people
cry in their pillows.

Even my name hisses.
I am called Gossssip.

Office Gossip.
Shop Gossip.
Party Gossip.
Telephone Gossip.

I make headlines and headaches.

Before your repeat
a story ask yourself:

Is it true?
Is it fair?
Is it necessary?

If not ~ shut up.
Ann Landers
