DETRACTION
[ Also see Abuse Babblers Criticism Disparagement Reputation Slander ]

The low desire, the base design
  That makes another's virtues less.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Black detraction will find faults where they are not.
      - Philip Massinger

Detraction's a bold monster, and fears not
  To wound the fame of princes, if it find
    But any blemish in their lives to work on.
      - Philip Massinger

A third interprets motions, looks, and eyes;
  At every word a reputation dies.
      - Alexander Pope

Mankind praise against their will,
  And mix as much detraction as they can.
      - Edward Young
