One day someone ran up to the ancient wise man Socrates & whispered:
"Socrates, listen to this bit of juicy gossip about a friend of yours."
"Wait!" quickly answered the wise man.
"Have you first passed that gossip through the three filters?"
"What three filters?"
"Yes, my friend, three filters.
Now let's see whether the gossip you want to tell me passes
through those filters." "The first filter is truth.
Are you sure that what you are going to tell me is the truth?"
"Well," stuttered the man,"actually I heard the story secondhand."
"Hmmm," answered Socrates. "Let's go on to the second filter
and see if your story will pass through it.
Is what you are going to tell me, kind?"
"Not exactly," said the informer.
"In fact it's just the opposite."
"So that takes care of filter number two.
Now tell me: is it necessary?"
"Well, if what you want to tell me is neither true
nor kind nor necessary,
Socrates would have agreed with what St. James wrote:
"If a person never sins in what he says, he is perfect." Jm 3:2
