Jack’s Winning Words 1/11/19
“Whoever gossips to you will gossip about you.” (Spanish Proverb) Martin Luther explained the commandment, “You shall not bear false witness,” by saying: “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor. ... but defend him, speak well of him, and explain everything in the kindest way,”or, in other words,..Don’t gossip!…Don’t be a blabbermouth! or a dirt-disher! but rather, deflect the negatives of the gossiper with positives about the gossipee. ;-) Jack
FROM HONEST JOHN: I love the term "gossippee"....it is a category that probably includes everyone who has ever lived!===JACK: I "like" the gossipers in the Music Man, Eulalie and her group of biddies.
