Time for a Quote

Following on from the last blog, here is a quote on criticism, which can be interpreted as criticism you give yourself as well as from external sources.

‘To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing’

I love quotes and this is so punchy and easy to remember. There are of course so many quotes, so being selective for yourself keeps them more powerful in meaning

This is attributed to good old Aristotle – how come the words of the ancient Greeks seem so weighted in authority by the time of history? After looking more closely into this quote, the person who most probably said it was Elbert Hubbard, an American writer, artist and philosopher and a very interesting man if you take the time to look him up.

I’ll bring you some more quotes for writing and life as we go along – just try stopping me!
