Wisdom from the greatest voices of reason who are, or have ever been, in our world

19th November

On critics

Unless the bastards have the courage to give you unqualified praise, I say ignore them.

John Steinbeck

Praise can be your most valuable asset as long as you don't aim it at yourself.

O A Battista

Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.

James Michener

Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.

Horace Greeley (1811-1872)

He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.
