Small, Sad and Bitter

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” — Mark Twain

It’s a harsh, cynical world out there. You don’t have to go far to find someone who will tell you what problems they have with the way things are. It seems like the critics outnumber the people actually doing honest-to-goodness work.

… but don’t let that get you down.

Life has always been in the DOING. Those people who are so quick to tear you down, or jab at you with a petty comment are small, sad people. Pity them. And then move on. Your life is out there.
