It is harder to kill a whisper than even a shouted calumny  (Calumny Quotes) Calumny is only the noise of madmen  (Calumny Quotes) Calumny ever pursues the great, even as the winds hurl themselves on high places  (Calumny Quotes) Be thou as chaste as ice, as pure as snow, thou shalt not escape calumny. Get thee to a nunnery, go  (Calumny Quotes) To persevere in one’s duty, and be silent is the best answer to calumny  (Calumny Quotes) Society is a republic. When an individual endeavors to lift himself above his fellows, he is dragged down by the mass, either by means of ridicule or of calumny.

It shall make me set a surer guard on myself, and keep a better watch upon my actions  (Calumny Quotes) He that lends an easy and credulous ear to calumny is either a man of very ill morals or has no more sense and understanding than a child  (Calumny Quotes) Calumny would soon starve and die of itself if nobody took it in and gave it lodging  (Calumny Quotes) Our credulity is greatest concerning the things we know least about. And since we know least about ourselves, we are ready to believe all that is said about us. Hence the mysterious power of both flattery and calumny  (Calumny Quotes) True devotion must not get dispirited; nor elated or satisfied with lesser gains; it must fight against failure, loss, calumny, calamity, ridicule and against egoism and pride, impatience and cowardice  (Calumny Quotes) It is in the habits of lawyers that every accusation appears insufficient if they do not exaggerate it even to calumny; it is thus that justice itself loses its sanctity and its respect amongst men  (Calumny Quotes) A man calumniated is doubly injured - first by him who utters the calumny, and then by him who believes it  (Calumny Quotes) Calumny is a vice of curious constitution; trying to kill it keeps it alive; leave it to itself and it will die a natural death  (Calumny Quotes) If thou dost marry, I'll give thee this plague for thy dowry: be thou as chaste as ice, as pure as snow, thou shalt not escape calumny  (Calumny Quotes) Neglected, calumny soon expires, show that you are hurt, and you give it the appearance of truth  (Calumny Quotes) His calumny is not only the greatest benefit a rogue can confer on us, but the only service he will perform for nothing  (Calumny Quotes) Calumny is like the wasp which worries you, and which it is not best to try to get rid of unless you are sure of slaying it; for otherwise it returns to the charge more furious than ever  (Calumny Quotes) There is something mean in human nature that prefers to think evil, that gives a willing ear and a ready welcome to calumny, a sort of jealousy of goodness and greatness and things of good report  (Calumny Quotes) I have much to say why my reputation should be rescued from the load of false accusation and calumny which has been heaped upon it  (Calumny Quotes) Nothing will ever equal that moment of joyous excitement which filled my whole being when I felt myself flying away from the earth.

There was no longer anyone with the noble determination to get to know the great men of the world, or if there were some individuals consumed with this curiosity, they were few in number. From then on, there remained only vulgar minds given over to hatred, envy and discord, who took an interest only in things which did not concern them, gossip, slander, calumny of one’s neighbors, all those things which are the source of the worst of our troubles  (Calumny Quotes) Calumny is like counterfeit money; many people who would not coin it circulate it without qualms  (Calumny Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
