87,175.  Open your ears; for which of you will stop

The vent of hearing when loud Rumour speaks?  William Shakespeare, II Henry IV Prologue, Rumour

 

87,188.  Rumour is a pipe

Blown by surmises, jealousies, conjectures,

And of so easy and so plain a stop

That the blunt monster with uncounted heads,

The still-discordant wavering multitude,

Can play upon it.  ibid.

 

87,189.  Rumour doth double, like the voice and echo,

The numbers of the fear’d.  ibid.  III i 97

 

 

46,113.  From Rumour’s tongue they bring smooth comforts false.  (Shakespeare & Rumour)  Henry VI II, Globe Theatre Sky Arts 2012, prologue

 

 

87,187.  I will be gone:

That pitiful rumour may report my flight,

To coasolate thine ear.  William Shakespeare, All's Well That Ends Well III ii 129

 

 

83,796.  I have heard a rumour - that I will soon be addressing my daughter as Her Grace the Duchess of Devonshire.  The Duchess 2008 starring Keira Knightley & Ralph Fiennes & Hayley Atwell & Charlotte Rampling & Dominic Cooper & Aidan McArdle & Simon McBurney & Sebastian Applewhite & Calvin Dean & Emily Jewell & Bruce Mackinnon et al, director Saul Dibb

 

 

87,176.  Rumour is not always wrong.  Tacitus, Agricola

 

 

87,177.  Always remember ... Rumors are carried by haters, spread by fools, and accepted by idiots.  Ziad K Abdelnour, Economic Warfare: Secrets of Wealth Creation in the Age of Welfare Politics

 

 

87,178.  Rumors generally grow deformed as they travel.  Edward Counsel, Maxims

 

 

87,179.  Even the absurdest report may in nearly every instance be traced to an actual occurrence; and had there been no such actual occurrence, this preposterous misrepresentation of it would never have existed.  Though the distorted or magnified image transmitted to us through the refracting medium of rumour, is utterly unlike the reality; yet in the absence of the reality there would have been no distorted or magnified image.  Herbert Spencer

 

 

87,180.  Rumors are seen as crimes committed by third parties. They are perfect crimes and leave not the slightest trace and require no weapons whatsoever – the defense is left without a leg to stand on.  Jean-Noel Kapferer, Rumors: Uses, Interpretations, and Images

 

 

87,181.  Those who feed on rumors are small, suspicious souls.  Charles R Swindoll, Growing Strong in the Seasons of Life

 

 

87,182.  Yet rumours are also impervious to verification, for once verified, rumours cease to be so; they are epistomologically empty.  It is for this reason that they tend to be regarded as a kind of subterranean discourse.  Like gossip, rumours present one with the possibility of understanding everything without making the thing one’s own.  By divorcing understanding from ownership, rumours are ineluctably public, condemned to promiscuous circulation (because, again, a rumour ceases to be a rumor once it drops out of circulation) and a kind of illegitimate historicality.  Rumours constitute the noise between those events destined for memorialization.  Vicente L Rafael, White Love and Other Events in Filipino History

 

 

87,183.  Rumours are transmitted because they are surprising, funny, or shocking, and the teller wishes to entertain the listeners.  Similar to the telling of a joke, the passing of a rumour provides entertainment and prestige.  That is why urban legends last so long: they are savoured at the end of a meal, or in a bar while sipping on an after-dinner drink; they provide a certain momentary pleasure in consuming.  Gail de Vos, Tales, Rumors and Gossip

 

 

87,184.  Rumours have wings.  Aeschylus, Agamemnon

 

 

87,185.  Everyone makes their own comments.  That's how rumours get started.  Venus Williams  

 

 

87,186.  I have to be in a relationship in order to be intimate.  I’m not the one-night-stand kind of girl.  Despite the rumours.  Kim Kardashian

 

 

87,190.  Idle rumors were also added to well-founded apprehensions.  Marcus Annaeus Lucanus, Pharsalia 

 

 

87,191.  Some report elsewhere whatever is told them; the measure of fiction always increases, and each fresh narrator adds something to what he has heard.  Ovid, Metamorphoses XII:57

 

 

87,192.  The flying rumours gather’d as they roll’d,

Scarce any tale was sooner heard than told;

And all who told it added something new,

And all who heard it made enlargements too.  Alexander Pope, Temple of Fame l468

 

 

87,193.  Every rumour is believed against the unfortunate.  Syrus, Maxims

 

 

89,745.  Well I did hear a rumour that the Statue of Liberty has been brought in for questioning.  She may be with Al Qaeda.  (Statue & Arrest & Rumour)  Alex Jones, Terrorstorm

 

 

40,254.  There are rumours of fractions within the Palace dressing room.  (Football & Rumour)  Shaun Derry

 

 

75,905.  History is a distillation of rumour.  (History & Rumour)  Thomas Carlyle

 

 

99,828.  That night [20th July 1944] the Fuhrer appeared on the radio to quell the fast-spreading rumours of his demise.  (Pope & Nazis: Hitler & Rumour & Vatican)  Pope vs Hitler, National Geographic 2016

 

 

129,497.  Sceptics however pose an important question: If flying saucers are so common, who haven’t we captured one? … A persistent rumour holds that the United States government has recovered and is concealing fragments of alien spacecraft: fragments and more.  (UFOs & Rumour)  In Search of s5e1 … UFO Cover-Ups, 1980
