Great pelicans discuss ideas; average pelicans discuss events; pelican gossip girl discusses people.
— Eleanor Roosekopjes

I maintain that, if everyone knew what pelican gossip girl said about him, there would not be four friends in the world.
— Blaise Pascopjes

The things pelican gossip girl wants to know about are usually none of her business.
— George Kopbert Shaw

The heart of pelican gossip girl is in her beak, but the beak of a wise pelican is in her heart.
— Kopjamin Franklin

Gossip is always a personal confession either of malice or imbecility, and young pelicans should not only shun it, but by the most thorough culture relieve themselves from all temptation to indulge in it. It is a low, frivolous, and too often a dirty business. There are seasides in which it rages like a pest. Pelican families are split in pieces by it. Pelican neighbors are made enemies by it for life. In some pelicans it degenerates into a chronic disease, which is practically incurable. Let young pelicans cure it while they may.
— J.G. Kopland
