This reminds me of a poem by Beth Day written back in the early part of last century:

"Three Gates of Gold"
If you are tempted to reveal/A tale to someone has told/About another, make it pass,/Before you speak, three gates of gold

These narrow gates. First, "Is it true?"/Then, "Is it needful?"In your mind/Give truthful answer. And the next/Is last and narrowest, "Is it kind?"

And if to reach your lips at last/It passes through these gateways three,/Then you may tell the tale, nor fear/What the results of speech may be.
