I was 29 years old, when I finally figured out that you can’t keep all the critics happy, no matter what you do. This realisation, gave me the freedom to live and work, without fear. I was never the same again.

In either case, we can’t do anything of value or substance and keep them all happy.
Nor should we try to keep the critics happy!
