Criss Jami
“The emphasis and the reason for a pure humility is to result in love for others; not always necessarily the belittlement of self. When there is pride and self-righteousness and being pretentiously too far above, generally, one has a difficult time reaching the compassionate side of love for others, the side that understands (or at least attempts to understand): 'I am aware that I am not so far from falling in the same way.' Humility seeks to understand, and sometimes even relate; and in result, the love lovingly, properly, effectively wills the removal of the destructive sins of another as from oneself.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

“Is constructive criticism really constructive? Not really. You can't make a child better by pointing out what you think is wrong with him or her.

"Criticism" means "to tear down" It creates defiance and anger as well.”
H. Norman Wright

“Choose criticism wisely, it might help you improve some elements of what you do.”
