Bad news travels fast

Possible interpretation: "Bad news" means news about "bad" things like accidents, death, illness etc. People tend to tell this type of news quickly. But "good news" (passing an exam, winning some money, getting a job etc) travels more slowly.

Note: This reminds us of the proverb "No news is good news."

Quick Quiz:

  1. are trying to comfort you
  2. want to make you cry
  3. want you to go faster
