Thought for the Day


Criticism: We all live with it. 
I think Elbert Hubbard (1856 - 1915) said it best: 

To escape criticism: Do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.

Elbert Hubbard was an American writer, publisher, artist, and great thinker. He was the founder of the Roycroft community of artists and a part of the fabulous Arts and Crafts Movement in the USA.
