People in Glass Houses Shouldn't Throw Stones

Meaning: This saying warns us against hypocrisy. We should not criticize other people for things we do ourselves.

FURTHER CLARIFICATION: Don't gossip about people if you have secrets of your own. (and I'm pretty sure we "ALL" have our secrets)

Hypocrites chap my ass!

and I'm not the only one....

"Who that hath an hed of verre, Fro cast of stones war hym in the werre!"(Chaucer, "Troilus & Criseyde," c1385)

George Herbert wrote in 1651: 'Whose house is of glass, must not throw stones at another.'

Benjamin Franklin wrote, 'Don't throw stones at your neighbors', if your own windows are glass.' '

That's all I'm sayin' ~ so....stop it!
