It is always safe to talk about others as long as you speak of their good qualities.
By The Napoleon Hill Foundation
The old adage, "If you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all," is especially valid today. In any organization, regardless of size, the rumor mill works overtime when it comes to negative gossip. And you can be sure that unkind things you say about others will very quickly find their way to them, for it is also a truism that those who talk about others to us talk about us to others. Not only should you not speak badly of others -- you should not participate in conversations in which others do. Spend your time with those who focus on important things, and you will never have to apologize for an unkind word uttered in a moment of weakness.
