To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.
The dread of criticism is the death of genius.
William Gilmore Simms
Criticism is information that will help you grow.
Hendrie Weisinger, Ph.D
Concern over criticism clogs creativity.
Duane Alan Hahn
Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do criticize him, you'll be a mile away and have his shoes.
Jack Handey or Steve Martin
(Attributed to both. If you have proof of origin, please let me know.)
Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people.
A sneer is the weapon of the weak.
James Russell Lowell
In a kind of backwards version of Odysseus and the Sirens, you can tie yourself to the mast and listen to the nastiest, most suicide-inducing criticism and you'll get through it without crashing on the rocks. Once you get past the scathing Sirens, you can untie yourself and use what you heard to improve in some way.
Duane Alan Hahn
He who throws dirt always loses ground.
Criticism is an indirect form of self-boasting.
Dr. Emmit Fox
A critic is a legless man who teaches running.
The pleasure we feel in criticizing robs us from being moved by very beautiful things.
Jean De La Bruyere
A cynic is prematurely disappointed with the future.
Criticism is the disapproval of people, not for having faults, but having faults different from your own.
Any jackass can kick a barn down, but it takes a carpenter to build it.
Quitting when you run into a little criticism might seem like the act of someone with low self-esteem, but what's really happening is that you think you're so good that you couldn't possibly learn something or get a little better than you already are. The untamed brain hates change. It would rather have you standing naked in the middle of the street crying your eyes out. Once you realize that your brain hates change and it will do anything to avoid it, you've not only thrown a rope around your brain, you've already started to tame it without even realizing it.
Duane Alan Hahn
There is no defense against criticism except obscurity.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right. You'll be criticized anyway.
All my life people have said that I wasn't going to make it.
You are a glorious, shining sword and criticism is the whetstone. Do not run from the whetstone or you will become dull and useless. Stay sharp.
Duane Alan Hahn
Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I’ve been taking #ad Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.
Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn’t bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can’t tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.
If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by William Davis and Ivor Cummins. Most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: #ad Undoctored, #ad Wheat Belly, and #ad Eat Rich, Live Long.
Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.
Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground.
Hydrofracking is bad for you, your family, your friends, and the environment.
