Socrates's Triple Filter : T-U-G

Got this from a friend. Sharing, as this will help in our efforts to Live SSpiritually, as we try to implement 9 Code of Conduct – Eighth being, ‘not to talk ill of others…’

When an acquaintance started to talk about a friend to Socrates, he was stopped by the Greek philosopher to subject the topic to his Triple Test :
1.     Test of Truth
2.     Test of Goodness
3.     Test of Usefulness

In today’s social networking/micro-blogging/text messaging ‘quick’ world, it will help us if we use this triple filter (T-U-G) quickly.
