What does this popular phrase mean, "People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones?"

i agree with you kiwi about throwing stones in/at a glass house - but i always thought the saying also suggested that everyones lives are quite visible - there is always someone who knows what youve been up to - and therefore we should not be quick to condemn others.... just my thoughts... :)

If you throw stones in a glass house your house will break!!!it means do not cast aspersions on others unless you yourself are free of any wrongdoing. Jesus said 'let he who is without sin cast the first stone' which means the same thing. So basically don't judge others lest you be so judged. My Mum had a saying that was that we are all qualified to bring up the neighbours children. What a pearl of wisdom that one has turned out to be.
