Once upon a time an old man


Once upon a time an old man spread rumors that his neighbor was a thief.
As a result, the young man was arrested. Days later the young man was
proven innocent. After been released he sued the old man for wrongly
accusing him.

In court the old man told the Judge: 'They were just comments, didn't
harm anyone..'

The judge, before passing sentence on the case, told the old man: 'Write
all the things you said about him on a piece of paper. Cut them up and
on the way home, throw the pieces of paper out. Tomorrow, come back to
hear the sentence.'

The next day, the judge told the old man: 'Before receiving the
sentence, you will have to go out and gather all the pieces of paper
that you threw out yesterday.'

The old man said: 'I can't do that! The wind spread them and I won't
know where to find them.'

The judge then replied: 'The same way, simple comments may destroy the
honor of a man to such an extent that one is not able to fix it.

"If you can't speak well of someone, rather don't say anything"

'Let's all be masters of our mouths, so that we won't be slaves of our
words.'
