“Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man’s growth without destroying his roots.”

“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events’ small minds discuss people.”
— Eleanor Roosevelt

Listen and Learn

“People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built.”
— Eleanor Roosevelt
