3. “If you know something to be true
Say it once
Those who can receive it
Only the foolish believe they can justify a truth to a court of fools
Honor the truth
For even before a just judge
A lie can be proven to be credible
On the other hand
The truth will never require a woman or man’s justification
It can stand alone
Whether torn and ridiculed
Truth stands
Even after all has been stripped away”
― Gregory C. Warner

5. “If we can only speak to slander our betters, let us hold our tongues.” -Anne Bronte

If no one listens to slander and no one repeats it, slander dies and the damage it does is nullified.” -Rebecca Hamilton (Slander quotes)

14. “You can’t just slander someone, defame them, lie about them. You can’t incite people to crime. There are all sorts of reasonable restrictions on free speech that are already codified in the British common-law system.” – Jordan Peterson

16. “Slander expires at a good woman’s door.” -Danish Proverb (Slander quotes)

17. “Slander is a blighting sirocco; its pestiferous breath pollutes with each respiration; its forked tongue is charged with the same poison; it searches all corners of the world for victims; it sacrifices the high and low, the king and the peasant, the rich and poor, the matron and maid, the living and the dead; but delights most in destroying worth and immolating innocence.” – Henry F. Kletzing

18. “Slander meets no regard from noble minds; only the base believe what the base only utter.” -John Bellers (Slander quotes)

122 Slander quotes

23. “I do not wish to slander his name, I think Netanyahu ran the country well but his time is up.” -Benny Gantz

24. “SLANDERING others is a sin too common nowadays, and is very cowardly, as the slandered person has not the opportunity of defending him or herself. It is an attempt to ruin a fellow creature when we think we are free from danger. It is an “agrarian outrage,” an attempt to shoot from behind a hedge, or high wall; to stab in the dark.

Never join in slandering others; it lowers you in your own estimation, and that of mankind, and makes you feel ashamed to look in the face the person you have so slandered, the next time you meet him or her, and often to act the hypocrite. Likewise sometimes causes you to be guilty of ingratitude, for he or she you have slandered, may in former times have befriended you either by word or deed. If you cannot speak good of any persons, far better say nothing at all about them than lower yourself by speaking evil about them; however much at the time, you may think they deserve it. (Slander quotes)

You will feel far more satisfied with yourself afterward if you act thus; for, by so acting, you have no fault to find hereafter with your own conduct; for, to please oneself, is, or ought to be, to please the hardest, and the most exacting of all taskmasters. Never try to exalt yourself on the ruins of another man’s character.” -T. Augustus Forbes Leith

25. “I don’t like the whole ‘slander, slander’ conversation that most political debates are these days. So I tend to keep my political standpoint, not to myself, but just relatively private.” -Lukas Forchhammer

26.”Slander reveals the greatest truth about the coward implementing it.” - Vanna Bonta

27. “Slander is the tool of cowards.” - Vanna Bonta (Slander quotes)

28. “Slander is a knife with no handle. It is murder with words, and it does wound the person who is slandered. But it cuts the slanderer himself even more deeply.” -Rebecca Hamilton

29. “People who have practiced occult religions for many years are being told that they don’t know the first thing about their own religion and its beliefs and practices – and that a bunch of zealots from another religion posing as ‘experts’ (in religion they despise/ fear/ oppose and who peddle slander and misinformation about occult religions) are more credible than they are. Non-Seqitur. This does not follow.”- Christina Engela (Slander quotes)

30. “Slanderers are monsters, without morals. They’re cannibals, who eat their relatives’ cold, dead bodies.” -Almazbek Atambayev

35. “All slander must still be strangled in its birth, or time will soon conspire to make it strong enough to overcome the truth.” -Sir W. Davenant

36. “Slanderers are a species of creatures, so great a scandal to human nature, as scarce to deserve the name of men. They are, for the generality, a composition of the most detestable vices, price, envy, lying, hatred, uncharitableness, etc… And yet it is a lamentable truth that these wretches swarm in every town, and lurk in every village; and, actuated by these base principles, are ever busied in attacking the characters of mankind; none are too good or too great to escape the level of their envenomed dart; nor does the inefficacy of their malicious intentions in the least deter them from persevering in their villainy.” -Wellins Calcott

37. “Tacit collaboration by millions who
bite their lip is even more essential than lip service by thousands of favor seekers. Hence, to stimulate at least passive cooperation, the party strives to give the impression that “everybody” is already on its side. (The Rise of Political Correctness)” – Angelo Codevilla

38. “Slander, whose whisper over the world’s diameter, as level as the cannon to its blank, transports its poisoned shot.” -William Shakespeare

39. “Animosity in fact loves but in a different sense. Meaning it loves in the same way that, as it is often said, misery loves company. And just as love seeks unity, so does hatred crave uniformity.” – Criss Jami

40. “Just because something isn’t a lie does not mean that it isn’t deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.” – Criss Jami (Slander quotes)

47. “If slander be a snake, it is a winged one, it flies as well as creeps.” -Douglas William Jerrold (Slander quotes)

48. “Non-professionals can also misrepresent the personal characteristics, religious beliefs, and appearance, of these therapists, can name-call and otherwise mock them and can attribute false agendas to them, such as assigning religious motives to secular therapists working with ritual abuse or mind control survivors.

For example, there is little to prevent someone from claiming on his or her own website that a psychotherapist is a fundamentalist Christian zealot at war with Satan, when that therapist might be an atheist, Jew, Buddhist, etc., who places no stock in the existence of Satan. But such a claim, when spoken as if it is fact, accomplishes its intended purpose of maligning that therapist.” – Ellen P. Lacter

49. “Your tittle-tattlers, and those who listen to slander, by my goodwill should all be hanged — the former by their tongues, the latter by the ears.” -Plautus (Slander quotes)

50. “Slander is a high level of character assassination.” -Ryan Lestrange (Slander quotes)

122 Slander quotes

“Slander slays three people: the speaker, the spoken to, and the spoken of.” -HEBREW PROVERB

56. “The crazy creatives are the creatives who never go completely mad. They aren’t so easily disheartened by the seemingly endless amounts of scrutiny that creative individuals tend to receive because they, like insanity, are the ones who feed off of opposition and negative feedback and manage to continue along with healthy ambition. It is the crazy that teaches us to use our gifts wisely and own all the attackers.” – Criss Jami (Slander quotes)

57. “He who slanders his neighbor makes a rod for his own back.” -Dutch Proverb

58. “A eulogy is a life lived with a loved one or friend condensed into a few moments relating poignant and witty stories about them to a hushed congregation.

61. “BAZILE. Slander, peculiar? You don’t know what the word means if you can dismiss it so easily! I have seen the most decent, honest men brought virtually to their knees by it.

Believe me, there’s no downright lie, no tissue of horrors, no tittle-tattle so absurd that you can’t get the crass, nosy population of any city to swallow if you set about it the right way, and here in Seville we have experts! It starts as a faint whisper, skimming the ground like a swallow before the storm, pianissimo.

It whirrs and scatters, and as it spreads it shoots out poisoned barbs. A mouth catches one and, piano, piano, hooks it deftly into a convenient ear. The damage is done. It breeds, creeps, multiplies, and, rinforzando, it hops like some fiend from mouth to mouth. Then suddenly, don’t ask me how, you see Slander rear up, hissing, bulging, swelling as you watch.

It takes flight, spreads its wings, swoops, swirls, enfolds, claws, seizes, erupts, and explodes and turns, God only knows how, into a general clamor, a public crescendo, a universal chorus of hate and condemnation. Is there a man alive who can survive it?” – Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais (Slander quotes)

62. “Truth is generally the best vindication against slander.” -Abraham Lincoln

63. “Slander is a complication, a comprisal, and sum of all wickedness.” -Isaac Barrow

64. “Someone who smiles too much with you can sometimes frown too much with you at your back.” – Michael Bassey Johnson (Slander quotes)

66. “To speak evil of anyone, unless there are unequivocal proofs of their deserving it, is an injury for which there is no adequate reparation.” –George Washington


122 Slander quotes

“Do not keep the slanderer away,
treat him with affection and honor:
Body and soul, he scours all clean,
babbling about this and that.” – Kabir

68. “If we can only speak to slander our betters, let us hold our tongues.” – Anne Brontë (Slander quotes)

69. “Well, you can knock me down
Step in my face
Slander my name
All over the place
Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh
Honey, lay off of my shoes
Don’t you step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes ” – Carl Perkins

70. “Tale-bearers are as bad as the tale-makers.” – Richard Brinsley Sheridan, The School for Scandal

72. “So thou be good, slander doth but approve, Thy worth the greater.” -William Shakespeare (Slander quotes)

73. “Do not let your peace depend on the words of men. Their thinking well or badly of you does not make you different from what you are. Where are true peace and glory? Are they not in Me? He who neither cares to please men nor fears to displease them will enjoy great peace, for all unrest and distraction of the senses arise out of disorderly love and vain fear.” – Thomas à Kempis, The Imitation of Christ

77. “Slander is worse than cannibalism.” -John Chrysostom (Slander quotes)

78. “What man ever openly apologizes for slander? It is not so much a feeling of slander as it is that of a massive lie, a misdeed not only to the slandered but also to those manipulated in the process. He has made them all, every one, his enemies, whereupon he is so overwhelmed with guilt that he will deny it until his grave.” – Criss Jami, Killosophy (Slander quotes)

Draw to you,
Incoherence rears its ugly head.
Resort to slander–
You drive me further away.

My wasted efforts!!
It’s your indifference, not mine,
That puts me on a pedestal.” -Napalm Death

90. “Slander is a secret propensity of the mind to think ill of men, and afterward to utter such sentiments in scandalous expressions.” -Theophrastus

91. “I wonder if you realize: When you browbeat people who disagree with you into silence – because they don’t want to be called hater, bigot, Hitler, whatever – their silence will create for you the illusion that you’re winning. But it’s just an illusion – an illusion you find so intoxicating that you’re completely unprepared when the moment of truth comes . . . and you lose.” – Dan Calabrese (Slander quotes)

92. “Slanders issuing from red and beautiful lips, are like foul and ugly spiders crawling from the blushing heart of a rose.” -George Denison Prentice

To buy it is to feed it
So why do we keep foolin’ ourselves.” -Michael Jackson

But if these smoother weapons cut so sore, what shall we say of open and unblushing scandal, subjected to no caution, tied down to no restraints? If the one, like an arrow shot in the dark, does nevertheless so much secret mischief, this, like the pestilence which rages at noonday, sweeps all before it, leveling without distinction the good and the bad: a thousand fall beside it, and ten thousand at its right hand: they fall, so rent and torn in this tender part of them, so unmercifully butchered, as sometimes never to recover either the wounds or the anguish of heart which they have occasioned.” -Laurence Sterne

110. “A rumor is a social cancer: it is difficult to contain and it rots the brains of the masses. However, the real danger is that so many people find rumors enjoyable. That part causes the infection. And in such cases when a rumor is only partially made of truth, it is difficult to pinpoint exactly where the information may have gone wrong. It is passed on and on until some brave soul questions its validity; that brave soul refuses to bite the apple and let the apple eat him. Forced to start from scratch for the sake of purity and truth, that brave soul, figuratively speaking, fully amputates the information in order to protect his personal judgment. In other words, his ignorance is to be valued more than the lie believed to be true.”- Criss Jami, Killosophy (Slander quotes)

111. “To be continually subject to the breath of slander, will tarnish the purest virtue, as constant exposure to the atmosphere will obscure the brightness of the finest gold; but in either case, the real value of both continues the same, although the currency may be somewhat impeded.” -Charles Caleb Colton

112. “Take lightly what you hear about individuals. We need not distort trust for our paltry little political agendas. We tend to trust soulless, carried information more than we trust soulful human beings; but really most people aren’t so bad once you sit down and have an honest, one-on-one conversation with them, once, with an open heart, you listen to their explanations as to why they act the way they act, or say what they say, or do what they do.”- Criss Jami

113. “The slanders of the pen pierce to the heart; they rankle longest in the noblest spirits; they dwell ever-present in the mind and render it morbidly sensitive to the most trifling collision.” -Washington Irving (Slander quotes)

114. “Do you really believe … that everything historians tell us about men – or about women – is actually true? You ought to consider the fact that these histories have been written by men, who never tell the truth except by accident.” – Moderata Fonte

115. “Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
Is the immediate jewel of their souls:
Who steals my purse steals trash; ’tis something, nothing;
’twas mine, ’tis his, and has been a slave to thousands;
But he that filches from me my good name
Robs me of that which not enriches him,
And makes me poor indeed.” – William Shakespeare, Othello
