It pays to talk good about someone

As human beings, we are not flawless. Hence we sometimes make mistakes, say something that offends others or do an act that annoys somebody.

In life, we should try to think of the good points of someone and not his bad points. There is a Chinese saying that goes, "Don't tell family shameful matter to others outside the house." It shows that there must be some virtue in this saying.

In fact, quarrels always starts when someone learns that somebody has talked bad about him. He will go to see the person and picks a row with him. However if you always talk about the good things about a certain person and if he were to hear it from somebody else, he will be very pleased. I'm sure he will have great respect for you and will never harbour any hatred towards you. It is a win-win situation.
