Handling Criticism Wisely

A critic is someone who never actually goes to the battle, yet who afterwards comes out shooting the wounded” - Tyne Daly

"Honest criticism is hard to take, particularly from a relative, a friend, an acquaintance, or a stranger" - Franklin P. Jones

"Children have more need of models, than of critics." - Joseph Joubert

"Do you have relatives that do nothing but complain and criticize? Don't let them get to you. God gave you two ears so things could go in one ear and out the other. Use them." - Kathy Laurenhue

“Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.”

"A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him or her." - David Brinkley

"No matter who says what, you should accept it with a smile and do your own work." - Mother Teresa

"The way we respond to criticism pretty much depends on the way we respond to praise. If praise humbles us, then criticism will build us up. But if praise inflates us, then criticism will crush us; and both responses lead to our defeat." - Warren W. Wiersbe
