Gossip is like the spider web: sticky dangerous almost invisible and spreading out in all directions. It catches all flying things from the common bug to the most beautiful of butterflies and in its clutches it slowly devours them.

Knowledge is like the wind: Subtle transparent yet powerful and strong. It tears the web of gossip to shreds freeing all living things and lifting them to the heavens.  — Scott Hague
