If you are afraid of criticism – say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

From “The Human Condition: A User’s Manual” by Arnold Kunst
How did Lincoln face criticism? Part One
I'm sure you'd agree with him when he said, "If I stopped to answer every criticism leveled against me, this shop might as well close for any other business."
Or when he said, "I plan to do the best I can, and I mean to keep doing that until the end. If the end brings me out right, what's said against me won't make any difference. And if the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference."
So far so good. But there are what you might generously call grey areas. We’ll cover them tomorrow in Part Two. Comments, please.
