There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.
First, have a definite, clear practical ideal; a goal, an objective. Second, have the necessary means to achieve your ends; wisdom, money, materials, and methods. Third, adjust all your means to that end.
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies
A friend to all is a friend to none
Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work
