There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing. -Aristotle (i. you can't avoid criticism so you must just learn to accept it and go on with your life. Accept yourself flaws and all).
Albert Einstein quote - Condemnation without investigation is the highest form of ignorance.
When you are a giraffe and your receive criticism from turtles, they are reporting the view from the level they are on" - TD Jakes
