People react to criticism in different ways, and my way is definitely to come out fighting.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight. If they live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive. If they live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
There are two kinds of power you have to fight. The first is the money, and that's just our system. The other is the people close around you, knowing when to accept their criticism, knowing when to say no.
I'm fighting hard - it's difficult under the weight of criticism but you have to take it
The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.
Norman Vincent Peale
The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
