Once upon a time an old man spread
rumors that his neighbor was a thief. As a
result, the young man was arrested. Days
later the young man was proven
innocent. After been released he sued
the old man for wrongly accusing him. In court the old man told the Judge :
“They were just comments, didn’t harm
anyone.”
The judge, before passing sentence on
the case, told the old man : “Write all the
things you said about him on a piece of paper. Cut them up and on the way
home, throw the pieces of paper out.
Tomorrow, come back to hear the
sentence.”
The next day, the judge told the old man
: “Before receiving the sentence, you will have to go out and gather all the pieces
of paper that you threw out yesterday.”
The old man said : “I can’t do that ! The
wind spread them and I won’t know
where to find them.”
The judge then replied : “The same way, simple comments may destroy the honor
of a man to such an extent that one is not
able to fix it.”
