April Fool’s Day

Any fool can criticize, complain, and condemn—and most fools do. (Dale Carnegie, author)

Everyone wants to be a critic. Whether it’s politics, music, theater, or sports, we all seem to think we know better than everyone else. But Carnegie continues: “It takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.” What a challenge!

Better to be criticized by a wise person than to be praised by a fool. (Ecclesiastes 7:5)
