Quotes about slander and talking badly about someone

If someone is talking badly about others, they are often said to be bad-mouthing, denigrating, putting-down or disparaging.

Sometimes, the best way to deal with a person like that is by replying to their hostile behavior with a knowledgeable quote.

Here are a couple of retorts that will persuade even the most hardened 'bad-mouther' to question their wicked ways:

  • "To speak of a man as you find him when he can't find you".
- Ambrose Bierce
  • "Our disputants put me in mind of the cuttlefish that, when he is unable to extricate himself, blackens the water about him till he becomes invisible".
-Joseph Addison

  • “If you haven't got anything nice to say about anybody come sit next to me.”
- Alice Roosevelt Longworth

  • “I have neither curiosity, interest, pain nor pleasure, in anything, good or evil, they can say of me. I feel only a slight disgust, and a sort of wonder that they presume to write my name.”
- Percy Bysshe Shelley
