I lurv quotes!!! Henry Ford n Ralph Waldo Emerson are my bestest best guys
Andy Warhol ‘forget the, u know, other queerness of him was a total bloke lol!!
Ok so the first 13 chapters’ quotes are written below:

c1. Our indiscretion sometime serve us well, when our deep plots do pall – William Shakespeare British poet n playwright
Whatever does pall me btw?n oh! The dud who won bb8 uk last year didn’t know who Shakespeare was? Hello r people getting dimmer?

c2. Gossip isn’t scandal and it’s not merely malicious. It’s chatter about the human race by lovers of the same – Phyllis McGinley US poet n author
Hmmm jus chatter…..it could hurt sometimes

c3. Anyone who has obeyed nature by transmitting a piece of gossip experiences the explosive relief that accompanies the satisfying of a primary need – Primo Levi Italian chemist n author
Like a huge weight off…..

c4. men have always detested women’s gossip because they suspect the truth: their measurements are being taken and compared – Erica Jong US educator and author
ha haa haa!

c5. ‘I never repeat anything’ That is the ritual phase of society people, by which gossip is reassured everytime – Marcel Proust French Novelist, critic and essayist

c6. But speak the truth, and all nature and all spirits help you with unexpected furtherance. Speak the truth, and all things alive or brute are vouchers, and very roots of the grass underground there do seem to stir and move to bear witness – Ralph Waldo Emerson US essayist poet and philosopher

c7. keep your own secret, and get out other people’s – Phillip Dormer Stanhope British statesman

c8. Women speak because they wish to speak, whereas a man speaks only when driven to speak by something outside himself – like, for instance, he can’t find any clean socks - Jean Kerr US author and playwright
The powerful ego of male man……….bb9’s rex is an all time classic example

c9. Good talkers are only found in Paris – François Villon French Poet
A ha! methinks I need to pay there a visit!

c10. the way to get a man interested and to hold his interest was to talk about him, and then gradually lead the conversation around to yourself–and keep it there – Margaret Mitchell US author
lmao!!! Shopaholic doesn’t do that…..… for non book readers shopaholic is Sophie Kinsella’s character

c11. We feel safer with a madman who talks than with one who cannot open his mouth – E. M. Cioran Romanian-born French Philosopher
Lol!!! At least the madman who talks will open disclose his harmful intensions

c12. Gossip is the opiate of the oppressed - Erica Jong US educator and author
Omg!!! How really funny…..in otherwords start telling an oppressed person a juicy piece of gossip n ur creatin an avenue for him/her to fall asleep

c13. I should not talk so much about myself if there were anybody else whom I knew as well – Henry David Thoreau Philosopher, author and naturalist
…….he meant {I guess} he wouldn’t speak so much about himself cept he knew someone who he knew better than himself!A ha! methinks I need to pay there a visit!

.............................geez i know its nice to feel special but i'm so sorry i really don't do 'special' minus family!
