"Education is the ability to meet life's situations." -Dr. John Hibben

"Criticism is dangerous, because it wounds a person's precious pride, hurts his sense of importance, and arouses resentment." p5.
- I have long known the detrimental side of criticism. However, I really appreciate thinking about it as 'dangerous', I think that is how I'll think about it from now on.
"Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain--and most fools do. But it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving." p13.
"God himself, sir, does not propose to judge man until the end of his days. Why should you and I?" p16.
