Criticism and Being “the other people” (by Kirk Weisler)

“If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how – the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, what’s said against me won’t amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.” The Inner Life of Abraham Lincoln: Six Months at the White House by Francis B. Carpenter

I think the wisdom of this quote by Lincoln invites us all to spend less time worrying about what people may be saying and instead focus our energies and our integrity on simply seeking to do our very best.  In addition we might consider that, “seeking to do the best they can” is what most others are trying to do as well.  (Unless of course it is a political candidate who running against yours.)  :)

A loyal 12 year old subscriber sent me a couple of his favorite quotes recently… I enjoyed them and wanted to pass them along for all to enjoy.

“Some people learn from other people’s mistakes. The rest of us have to be the other people.” – anonymous Â

“The rain falls on the just and the unjust, but mostly on the just because the unjust steals the just’s umbrella.” – anonymous

So I guess it’s better to be the wet person who learns?~  Kirk Out

I want to be this kid….  No umbrella, no worries…
