“There will always be someone willing to hurt you, put you down, gossip about you, belittle your accomplishments and judge your soul. It is a fact that we all must face. However, if you realize that God is a best friend that stands beside you when others cast stones you will never be afraid, never feel worthless and never feel alone.”
Shannon L. Alder

Shannon L. Alder

Nina LaCour, Hold Still

Shannon L. Alder
“If you have feelings for someone, let them know. It doesn’t matter if they can be in your life or not. Maybe, it is just enough for both of you to release the truth, so healing can occur. The opposite is true, as well. If you don’t have feelings for someone then never let another person suggest that you do. Protect your reputation and be responsible for the wrong information spread about you. Never allow anyone to live with a false belief or unfounded hope about you. An honorable person sets the record straight, so that person can move on with their life.”
Shannon L. Alder

Amanda Quick
“When you are rich and powerful, no one will challenge you to your face or give you a chance to explain yourself. All the whispers are behind your back. You are left with no means of clearing your own name. And after a while you realize there is no point in even attempting to do so. No one wants the truth. All anyone wants is the chance to add more fuel to the fires of gossip. The whispers become so loud that sometimes you think you will drown in them.”
Amanda Quick, Ravished

Adlai E. Stevenson II
“I offer my opponents a bargain: if they will stop telling lies about us, I will stop telling the truth about them”
Adlai E. Stevenson II

Toba Beta
“News told, rumors heard, truth implied, facts buried.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Be warned: A person content to sit with you and criticize others will speak critically of you out of earshot.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway

Ilona Andrews
“Rumors said that if he got drunk enough, he sometimes got his jollies by stripping naked and scaring hikers out in the Broken into thinking he was Bigfoot.”
Ilona Andrews, On the Edge

Jay Asher
“And everyone knows you can’t disprove a rumor.”
Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why

John Irving
“Don't forget this, too: Rumors aren't interested in the unsensational story; rumors don't care what's true.”
John Irving, In One Person

Aeschylus
“Rumours voiced by women come to nothing.”
Aeschylus, Agamemnon

Ilona Andrews
“So, regarding that tidbit about your having a fertile imagination when it comes to private activities," she said, fighting off anxiety. "Was it another lie?"
"Depends on how you look at it. It's not exactly a lie, and if you come with me to the Weird, you'll find that rumors of my 'creativity' when it comes to bed games with the opposite sex do exist. I started them myself and managed them very carefully. The trick with rumors is to feed them once in a while, so they don't die.”
Ilona Andrews, On the Edge

Kathleen O'Dell
“And though there’s a grain of truth in every rumor, I’ve found that the worst gossip usually starts with something harmless.”
Kathleen O'Dell, The Aviary

“Never judge someone's character based on the words of another. Instead, study the motives behind the words of the person casting the bad judgment. An honest woman can sell tangerines all day and remain a good person until she dies, but there will always be naysayers who will try to convince you otherwise. Perhaps this woman did not give them something for free, or at a discount. Perhaps too, that she refused to stand with them when they were wrong — or just stood up for something she felt was right. And also, it could be that some bitter women are envious of her, or that she rejected the advances of some very proud men. Always trust your heart. If the Creator stood before a million men with the light of a million lamps, only a few would truly see him because truth is already alive in their hearts. Truth can only be seen by those with truth in them. He who does not have Truth in his heart, will always be blind to her.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Shannon L. Alder
“Your tears are never invisible---there is always an insecure woman that lights up when you point them out.”
Shannon L. Alder

Criss Jami
“My belief is that, morally, God and Satan are vaguely on the same page. According to the common understanding of Satan's origins, holiness must be in his blood: but a corrupted formula. The vital difference is that God is willing to offer grace for our sins; he delights in grace. God is the one and only holy and just punisher of sin, yes, but that is partly so because punishment for the sake of punishment is not something he loves. Whereas Satan, as the accuser, and as it is written, actually seeks God's permission to punish; he, being a seasoned legalist, delights in finding wrongs and will defy his own morality just to expose immorality. This is why both the anti-religious soul and the violently religious soul are, whether consciously or unconsciously, and sadly enough, glorifying their biggest hater: Satan is not only a lawless lover of punishing lawlessness, but also the greatest theologian of us all. He loves wickedness, but only because he loves punishing wickedness.”
Criss Jami, Healology

Max Frei
“Where do rumors come from, Sir Kofa?" i was truly curious to know the answer.
"Where don't they come from? I suppose the majority of rumors are a combination of leaked information and the astouding imaginations of numerous storytellers. And, of course, the hope that things aren't really as boring as they seem on the surface.”
Max Frei, The Stranger

Anthony Liccione
“If something bad smells in the basement, it will eventually make its way to the attic.”
Anthony Liccione

“If the Creator stood before a million men with the light of a million lamps, only a few would truly see him because truth is already alive in their hearts. Truth can only be seen by those with truth in them. He who does not have Truth in his heart, will always be blind to it.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

James Kahn
“Doctor Jones, we're all vulnerable to vicious rumors. I seem to remember that in Honduras you were accused of being a grave robber rather than an archaeologist.
Indy: Well, the newspapers greatly exaggerated the incident.”
James Kahn
