“Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little,
Cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, pick a little more”
…lyrics from ‘The Music Man’ in which a group of ladies gossip. In life you meet people who conspire against others either with or without a personal agenda. I choose to ‘keep my side of the street clean’ and never gossip.
Advice: never say a word you wouldn’t say to a person’s face.
People with small minds talk about others,
people with average minds talk about things,
and people with excellent minds talk about ideas.
