Constructive criticism is an oxymoron...in relationships, it's an interpersonal liberty taken one step too far.

The Thinking Behind the Sales Tweet

Probably no ancient person ever said that. But, we will never know for sure. On the other hand, I did write “People should work at having thick skin and thin skulls”.

Thick skin will help people be less influenced by the criticism of others.

A thin skull will ensure important stuff gets in easier.

You are so derisive...if only you could change that "r" to a "c" you'd have one good character attribute going for you.
