Gossip

What is told in the ear of a man is often heard 100 miles away.

No one gossips about other people's secret virtues.

If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees. ~ Kahlil Gibran, Sand and Foam

When you are in trouble, people who call to sympathize are really looking for the particulars.

Whoever gossips to you will gossip about you.

Nothing travels faster than light, with the possible exception of bad news, which follows its own rules.

Show me someone who never gossips, and I'll show you someone who isn't interested in people. ~ Barbara Walters

Gossip needn't be false to be evil - there's a lot of truth that shouldn't be passed around.

It isn't what they say about you, it's what they whisper.

Trying to squash a rumor is like trying to unring a bell.

Who brings a tale takes two away.

A rumor without a leg to stand on will get around some other way.

The biggest liar in the world is They Say.

Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead.

There is so much good in the worst of us,
And so much bad in the best of us,
That it hardly becomes any of us
To talk about the rest of us.
~Edward Wallis Hoch

It's really hard to say. I think it does depend, but for the most part, it's probably equal. It's just that most people think of women as the gossipers. Which may, or may not be true. But definably, we tend to notice women gossiping more than men. That's why it may seem as if women gossip more. I don't know why we tend to notice women doing it more than men, that's just the way it is.
