For nothing is so pleasant to men as talking of other people’s business, especially under the influence of affection or hatred, which often almost entirely blinds us to the truth.
Oration 2 (In Defence of His Flight to Pontus), 1
A stickler might quibble over the taxonomy of sin. There is a perverse pleasure in hateful speech, and a warped joy in the blind lover’s gushing. The pleasures might be different, but they are nevertheless real.
May the Lord keep me from three great sins: talking of other’s business, being overly enamored, hatred.
