Scandal
 
  Scandal, like dirt, will rub out when dry.
            —Sir T. Bernard

  In scandal, as in robbery, the receiver is always as bad as the thief.
            —Earl of Chesterfield

  Scandal, like a reptile crawling over bright grass, leaves a trail and a stain.
            —Allan Cunningham

  Scandals are like dandelion seeds,—they are arrow-headed and stick where they fall, and bring forth and multiply fourfold.
            —Ouida
  4
  Scandal, like the Nile, is fed by innumerable streams, but it is extremely difficult to trace it to its source.
            —Punch
