If my life is fruitless, it doesn’t matter who praises me, and if my life is fruitful, it doesn’t matter who criticizes me.
John Bunyan, author of ‘The Pilgrim’s Progress’.
Having recently been on the receiving end of one of the biggest snubs/insults I’ve had in a long while, John Bunyan’s words couldn’t have come to me at a better time. It serves as a good reminder as to what really matters, at the end of the day.
Although it would be great too, if one can come to the point where one can truly say that “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me”, and mean it.
