I have the same motto, always give people a chance til they prove you otherwise. Thanks for sharing and the practical lesson.

If you think about it, gossip is resposible for so many problems in the world. Don't spread it!!

I wish more people knew that. I also despise when people say "She is so ugly" or "He needs to lose weight." Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Never talk bad about someone, especially if you don't really know them. They might be a great person!

Dont judge people because you will not find time to love them. Nobody is so good that he has no bad in him and nobody is so bad that he has no good in him.. so lets learn not to judge people.

I remember one time when I was with my friends we were saying bad things about a person who did not do anything wrong. I finally realized that those who try to criticize other people are poor in understanding that nobody is perfect!

I know how the teacher's friend feels for I myself am one of those people stuck to the same belief that we have no right to judge people no matter how evil they may be. We all possess a certain imperfection.

I like this message very much. It is always so easy to criticise or spread tales about others, behind their backs. Somehow, it takes constant reminder and deep realisation that as a fellow human we should not be too harsh or critical of others. Instead we should stay silent and be respectful to others for they too have problems and obstacles.

Easy minds discuss people, ordinary minds discuss events, but great minds discuss ideas, that's one quality principle you learned. My children will definitely learn of this. Keep it up.

It's true that trust is important especially judging those who are not there to defend themselves. Imagine if we are in their shoes.

Yes it is absolutely true. We should never talk ill of a person. What goes around comes around again.
