Fall of Kingdoms
What can be said about a man you’ve never met? Can you speak to his character, describe the way his face looks in shadow, or tell of his deeds? Are you able to explain where his virtues come from? Is it possible to judge his vices? Will the words you speak about him hold any weight at all, or is it mere waste of breath to speak of a man you’ve never met?
The truth is: this is how rumors get started.
