[Quote No.15076] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Remember this poem when you feel like criticising...]

I watched them tearing a building down,
A gang of men in a busy town.
With a ho - heave - ho and a lusty yell,
They swung a beam and the sidewall fell.
I asked the foreman, 'Are those men skilled,
And the men you'd hire if you had to build?'
He gave a laugh, said 'No indeed;
Just common labor is all I need.
I can easily wreck in a day or two,
What builders have taken a year to do.'
I thought to myself as I went my way,
'Which if these roles have I tried to play?
Am I a builder who works with care.
Measuring life by the rule and square?
Am I shaping my deeds to a well-made plan,
Patiently doing the best I can?
Or am I a wrecker, who walks the town
Content with the labor of tearing down?'

" - Edgar Albert Guest

There is no defense against reproach but obscurity; it is a kind of concomitant to greatness, as satires and invectives were an essential part of a Roman triumph." - Joseph Addison

[Quote No.15180] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"The critical faculty has its value in correcting errors, reforming abuses, and demolishing superstitions. But the constructive faculty is much nobler in itself and immeasurably more valuable in its results, for the obvious reason that it is a much nobler and better thing to build up than to pull down. It requires skill and labor to erect a building, but any idle tramp can burn it down. Only God can form and paint a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces." - John Monroe Gibson

[Quote No.15185] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"At any moment each person is always doing the very best he can, based on his total conscious and non conscious prevailing awareness and which is within his capabilities, energy, time, and developed talents and abilities. If people are always doing the very best they can, it is illogical and irrational to expect them to do better. What is the reason this concept is so important to understand? If it is true, then it is counterproductive to criticize someone for not meeting or conforming to an expectation or standard until they have the awareness of the benefits they will receive by conforming. What needs to exist is for people to be made aware of how they will get better results, by pointing out the consequences of their behavior and giving them the choice and opportunity to make adjustments." - Sidney Madwed

"Many people will ask how can people be helped to get better results, if you don't criticize them. The only way to do that is to share your observations in the form of questions so the other person will make a self - discovery on his own. In that way he will maintain his self - respect and will be more likely to change and cooperate. It is not an easy process because almost everybody is a trained and habitual critic and impatient to get results." - Sidney Madwed
