We've all been on the receiving end of criticism and, for some people, it can be debilitating and even paralyzing. The good news is you can take criticism, focus it in a different way, and use it to become a stronger person. Here is what some smart people have to say about the subject.

Franklin P. Jones:

Henri Frederic Amiel:
We are never more discontented with others than when we are discontented with ourselves.
