“Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man's growth without destroying his roots.” ~ Frank Howard Clark

Norman Vincent Peale also said: "The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism."

“To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing and be nothing.” ~ Elbert Hubbard

Welcome constructive criticism but just ignore negative criticism; it's not meant to be helpful. As Eleanor Roosevelt said, "Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do and damned if you don't."

“If criticism is mistaken or mean-spirited, rise above it. Maintain the high ground when you're under fire. No victory is worth winning at the expense of picking up the mud that has been slung at you and throwing it back.” ~ Rubel Shelly

Negative people will pull you into the gutter if they can. That's not to say keep your head in the clouds, we do indeed need to listen and be realistic, but don't allow yourself to be reduced to the level of envy and hatred expressed by some critics.

“When you are not attached to praise or criticism, an interesting freedom is yours.” ~ Kute Blackson
