We do not really feel grateful toward those who make our dreams come true; they ruin our dreams.
As a young man you don't notice at all that you were, after all, badly affected. For years afterwards, at least ten years, I kept getting these dreams, in which I had to crawl through ruined houses, along passages I could hardly get through.
Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.
The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.
