  • Of course we women gossip on occasion. But our appetite for it is not as avid as a man's. It is in the boys' gyms, the college fraternity houses, the club locker rooms, the paneled offices of business that gossip reaches its luxuriant flower.

  • Gossip is just news running ahead of itself in a red satin dress.
  • Gossip is charming! History is merely gossip . . . But scandal is gossip made tedious by morality.
  • Gossip. It's just a harmless form of recreation. It's careless talk that deals in polite fiction. It's nasty speculation that's based on not so polite fact.
