It is the natural disposition of all men to listen with pleasure to abuse and slander of their neighbour, and to hear with impatience those who utter praises of themselves. ~ Demosthenes
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Demosthenes
Slander is the solace of malignity. ~ Joseph Joubert
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Joseph Joubert
The discussion itself is what most matters, the fact that we can reason together easily, with a blend of wit and seriousness, never descending into gossip or slander and always allowing room for alternative views. ~ Stephen Greenblatt
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Stephen Greenblatt
All slander must still be strangled in its birth, or time will soon conspire to make it strong enough to overcome the truth. ~ William Davenant
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by William Davenant
Gossip, slander and jealousy have caused more pain than many wars. ~ Heather Wolf
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Heather Wolf
Those without an idea of who you are make you become what they think. ~ Michael Bassey Johnson
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
I do believe we slander Christ when we think we are to draw the people by something else but the preaching of Christ crucified. ~ Charles Spurgeon
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Charles Spurgeon
Tattletales, and those who listen to their slander, by my good will, should all be hanged. The former by their tongues, the latter by their ears.
[Lat., Homines qui gestant, quique auscultant crimina, si meo arbitratu liceat, omnes pendeant gestores linguis, auditores auribus.] ~ Plautus
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Plautus
Defend the unborn against abortion even if they persecute you, calumniate you, set traps for you, take you to court or kill you. ~ Pope Francis
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Pope Francis
Animosity in fact loves, but in a different sense. Meaning it loves in the same way that, as it is often said, misery loves company. And just as love seeks unity, so does hatred crave uniformity. ~ Criss Jami
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Criss Jami
Prayer is never out of season: in summer and in winter its merchandize is precious. Prayer gains audience with heaven in the dead of night, in the midst of business, in the heat of noonday, in the shades of evening. In every condition, whether of poverty, or sickness, or obscurity, or slander, or doubt, your covenant God will welcome your prayer and answer it from His holy place. ~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
The worthiest people are the most injured by slander, as is the best fruit which the birds have been pecking at. ~ Jonathan Swift
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Jonathan Swift
In all cases of slander currency, whenever the forger of the lie is not to be found, the injured parties should have a right to come on any of the indorsers. ~ Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Richard Brinsley Sheridan
What do the vitarags [the enlightended one] say? If you want to be beaten up, then beat others. If you want to be slandered, then slander someone. ~ Dada Bhagwan
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Dada Bhagwan
One can go on saying for years that one doesn't listen to gossip, that the absent cannot defend themselves from slander, etc., etc.; but, after all, isn't the provocation of so much gossip an offense in itself? ~ Thornton Wilder
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Thornton Wilder
...[Y]ou know very well the truth of what I [say]... I have incurred a great deal of bitter hostility; and this is what will bring about my destruction, if anything does... the slander and jealousy of a very large section of the people. They have been fatal to a great many other innocent men, and I suppose will continue to be so; there is no likelihood that they will stop at me. But perhaps someone will say 'Do you feel no compunction, Socrates, at having followed a line of action which puts you in danger of the death-penalty?' I might fairly reply to him 'You are mistaken, my friend, if you think that a man who is worth anything ought to spend his time weighing up the prospects of life and death. He has only one thing to consider in performing any action; that is, whether he is acting rightly or wrongly, like a good man or a bad one...['] The truth of the matter is this, gentlemen. Where a man has once taken up his stand, either because it seems best to him or in obedience to his orders, there I believe he is bound to remain and face the danger, taking no account of death or anything else before dishonour. ~ Socrates
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Socrates
Enter RUMOUR, painted full of tongues.
[Stage direction, Henry IV, Part 2, Induction] ~ William Shakespeare
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by William Shakespeare
Slander is poison to the soul. ~ David O. McKay
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by David O. McKay
While extremely sensitive as to the slightest approach to slander, you must also guard against an extreme into which some people fall, who, in their desire to speak evil of no one, actually uphold and speak well of vice. ~ Saint Francis De Sales
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
A wise man once found peace in the practice of saying nothing, leaving the gossiper with no other choice but to fabricate gossip about a wise man saying nothing ~ Herbert Maurice Brunner
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Herbert Maurice Brunner
But, should the period ever arrive, when luxury and intemperance shall corrupt our towns, while ignorance and vice pervade the country; when the press shall become the common sewer of falsehood and slander; when talents and integrity shall be no recommendation, and open dereliction of all principle no obstacle to preferment; when we shall entrust our liberties to men with whom we should not dare to trust our property; when the chief seats of honor and responsibility in our government shall be filled by characters of whom the most malicious ingenuity can invent nothing worse than the truth; when we shall see the members of our national councils, in defiance of the laws of God and their country, throwing away their lives in defence of reputations, which, if they ever existed, had long been lost; when the slanderers of Washington and the blasphemers of our God shall be thought useful laborers in our political vineyard; when, in fine, we shall see our legislators sacrificing their senses, their reason, their oaths, and their consciences at the altar of party; - then we may say, that virtue has departed, and that the end of our liberty draweth nigh." p37 ~ Edward Payson
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Edward Payson
Does a rake deserve to possess anything of worth, since he chases everything in skirts and then imagines he can successfully hide his shame by slandering [women in general]? ~ Christine De Pizan
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Christine De Pizan
Whatever you may know, you you cannot be truly efficient ministers if you are not "apt to teach." You know ministers who have mistaken their calling, and evidently have no gifts for it: make sure that none think the same of you. There are brethren in the ministry whose speech is intolerable; either they rouse you to wrath, or else they send you to sleep. No chloral can ever equal some discourses in sleep-giving properties; no human being, unless gifted with infinite patience, could long endure to listen to them, and nature does well to give the victim deliverance through sleep. I heard one say the other day that a certain preacher had no more gifts for the ministry than an oyster, and in my own judgment this was a slander on the oyster, for that worthy bivalve shows great discretion in his openings, and knows when to close. If some men were sentenced to hear their own sermons, it would be a righteous judgement upon them, and they would soon cry out with Cain, "My punishment is greater than I can bear." Let us not fall under the same condemnation. ~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
What man ever openly apologizes for slander? It is not so much a feeling of slander as it is that of a massive lie, a misdeed not only to the slandered but also to those manipulated in the process. He has made them all, every one, his enemies, thereupon he is so overwhelmed with guilt that he will deny it until his grave. ~ Criss Jami
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Criss Jami
In the last few days, I have been the victim of a campaign of slander and shameful lies, a campaign which has deeply shocked and hurt me. Enough is enough. ~ Dominique De Villepin
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Dominique De Villepin
He made a pit and digged it. He was cunning in his plans and industrious in his labors. He stooped to the dirty work of digging. He did not fear to soil his own hands. He was willing to work in a ditch if others might fall therein. What mean things men will do to wreak revenge on the godly. They hunt for good men as if they were brute beasts - they that will not give them the fair chase afforded to the hare or the fox, but must secretly entrap them because they can neither run them down nor shoot them down. Our enemies will not meet us to the face for they fear us as much as they pretend to despise us. But let us look on to the end of the scene. The verse says he has fallen into the ditch that he has made. Ah, there he is. Let us laugh at his disappointment. Lo, he is himself the beast. He has hunted his own soul. The chase has brought him a goodly victim. So should it ever be. ~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Slander is a poison which kills charity, both in the slanderer and the one who listens. ~ Bernard Of Clairvaux
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Bernard Of Clairvaux
The solid earth sways like the treacherous sea beneath the feet of men and spirits alike when the innocent are slain in the name of law, and their wrongs are undone by slandering the pure of heart. ~ George Bernard Shaw
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by George Bernard Shaw
Phaethon asked: "Do you think there is something wrong with the Sophotechs? We are Manorials, father! We let Rhadamanthus control our finances and property, umpire our disputes, teach our children, design our thoughtscapes, and even play matchmaker to find us wives and husbands!"

"Son, the Sophotechs may be sufficient to advise the Parliament on laws and rules. Laws are a matter of logic and common sense. Specially designed human-thinking versions, like Rhadamanthus, can tell us how to fulfill our desires and balance our account books. Those are questions of strategy, of efficient allocation of resources and time. But the Sophotechs, they cannot choose our desires for us. They cannot guide our culture, our values, our tastes. That is a question of the spirit."

"Then what would you have us do? Would you change our laws?"

"Our mores, not our laws. There are many things which are repugnant, deadly to the spirit, and self-destructive, but which law should not forbid. Addiction, self-delusion, self-destruction, slander, perversion, love of ugliness. How can we discourage such things without the use of force? It was in response to this need that the College of Hortators evolved. Peacefully, by means of boycotts, public protests, denouncements, and shunnings, our society can maintain her sanity against the dangers to our spirit, to our humanity, to which such unboundried liberty, and such potent technology, exposes us."

(...) But Phaethon ~ John C. Wright
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by John C. Wright
I hope each of us owns the facts of her or his own life," Hughes wrote in a letter to the Independent in April, 1989, when he had been goaded by a particularly intrusive article. But, of course, as everyone knows who has ever heard a piece of gossip, we do not "own" the facts of our lives at all. This ownership passes out of our hands at birth, at the moment we are first observed.
The organs of publicity that have proliferated in our time are only an extension and a magnification of society's fundamental and incorrigible nosiness. Our business is everybody's business, should anybody wish to make it so. The concept of privacy is a sort of screen to hide the fact that almost none is possible in a social universe. In any struggle between the public's inviolable right to be diverted and an individual's wish to be left alone, the public almost always prevails. After we are dead, the pretense that we may somehow be protected against the world's careless malice is abandoned. The branch of the law that putatively protects our good name against libel and slander withdraws from us indifferently. The dead cannot be libelled or slandered. They are without legal recourse. ~ Janet Malcolm
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Janet Malcolm
There is no need to slander the nimit (one who is instrumental), it is only necessary to distance yourself from that nimit. ~ Dada Bhagwan
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Dada Bhagwan
When a man truly sees himself, he knows nobody can say anything about him that is too bad. ~ D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Let us not believe that an external fast from visible food alone can possibly be sufficient for perfection of heart and purity of body unless with it there has also been united a fast of the soul. For the soul also has its foods that are harmful. Slander is its food and indeed one that is very dear to it. A burst of anger also supplies it with miserable food for an hour and destroys it as well with its deadly savor. Envy is food of the mind, corrupting it with its poisonous juices and never ceasing to make it wretched and miserable at the prosperity and success of another. Vanity is its food which gratifies the mind with a delicious meal for a time but afterward strips it clear and bare of all virtue. Then vanity dismisses it barren and void of all spiritual fruit. All lust and shift wanderings of heart are a sort of food for the soul, nourishing it on harmful meats but leaving it afterwards without a share of its heavenly bread and really solid food. If then, with all the powers we have, we abstain from these in a most holy fast our observance of the bodily fast will be both useful and profitable. ~ John Cassian
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by John Cassian
Happiness is always subject to slander. ~ Francoise Sagan
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Francoise Sagan
Slanders, sir, for the satirical rogue says here that old men have grey beards, that their faces are wrinkled, their eyes purging think amber and plum-tree gum, and that they have a plentiful lack of wit, together with most weak hams. ~ William Shakespeare
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by William Shakespeare
We slander the hyena; man is the fiercest and cruelest animal. ~ Henry David Thoreau
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Henry David Thoreau
If, when stung by slander or ill-nature, we wax proud and swell with anger, it is a proof that our gentleness and humility are unreal, and mere artificial show. ~ Francis De Sales
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Francis De Sales
Wretched are those preoccupied with insulting, belittling and discrediting others. ~ Wayne Gerard Trotman
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Wayne Gerard Trotman
I have neither curiosity, interest, pain nor pleasure, in anything, good or evil, they can say of me. I feel only a slight disgust, and a sort of wonder that they presume to write my name. ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
During the lifetime of great revolutionaries, the oppressing classes constantly hounded them, received their theories with the most savage malice, the most furious hatred and the most unscrupulous campaigns of lies and slander. After their death, attempts are made to convert them into harmless icons, to canonize them, so to say, and to hallow their names to a certain extent for the "consolation" of the oppressed classes and with the object of duping the latter, while at the same time robbing the revolutionary theory of its substance, blunting its revolutionary edge and vulgarizing it. ~ Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
A tongue prone to slander is the proof of a depraved mind. ~ Publilius Syrus
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Publilius Syrus
If you haven't got anything nice to say about anybody come sit next to me. ~ Alice Roosevelt Longworth
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Alice Roosevelt Longworth
Antipater, now undisputed heir, had called down on his head the utter loathing of the nation, for everyone knew that all the slanders directed against his brothers had originated with him. ~ Josephus
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Josephus
To engage with criticism, is on some level, a validation of that which otherwise would go unnoticed. ~ Jordan Carl Curtis
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Jordan Carl Curtis
The one enemy in the world that America has is England. But then, England is the great land of Christian civilization, and it may not be a thing to be much wondered at that our Americans whom we send to represent us in London become in a short time somewhat civilized, and learn to love those who hate them, bless those that curse them, and do good to those that persecute and calumniate them. ~ Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa
The enemy say that Americans are good at a long shot, but cannot stand the cold iron. I call upon you instantly to give a lie to this slander. Charge! ~ Winfield Scott
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Winfield Scott
You have got to be careful quoting Ronald Reagan, because when you quote him accurately it is called mudslinging. ~ Walter F. Mondale
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Walter F. Mondale
Jiu Jitsu shielded me from all of this. While many were investing in jobs they did not like, or frequenting bars and spending their weekends in front of the television, I pursued something worthy of my choosing. I say this not to slander another, but to show the sincerity with which I appreciate Jiu Jitsu's influence in my life. It saved me from the rat race. I found a reason to eat healthy, to get to bed early. A reason to stay in Friday nights, resulting in fewer beers and more books. I found a medium with which to carve my soul. ~ Chris Matakas
Calumniate Vs Slander quotes by Chris Matakas
