Famous Quotes About Criticism

"If criticism had any power to harm, The skunk would be extinct by now." Fred Allen

"I never give them hell; I just tell them the truth and they think it is hell."  Harry Truman

"Honest criticism is hard to take, particularly from a relative, a friend, an acquaintance, or a stranger."  Franklin P. Jones

What Is Criticism?

What is criticism? It can be an opinion from a friend or from someone you don't know. Sometimes, people do it for the sake of doing it or they are bored. Some criticism is constructive, destructive, or just plain nasty. Some people can take it or leave it. But it's there and always will be. You can choose whether to let it affect you or not. I choose not. What do you choose?

Selena - No Me Queda Mas (There's Nothing Left Fo Me) Including Lyrics In Both Spanish and English

No Me Queda Mas (There's Nothing Left For Me)(1994)

Spanish Lyrics:No Me Queda Mas
No me queda mas que perderme en un abismo
De tristeza y lagrimas
No me queda mas
que aguantar bien mi derrota
y brindarte, felicidad
No me queda mas
si tu regreso hoy sería
una imposibilidad
Y esto que no era amor, lo que hoy niegas
Lo que dices que nunca pasó
Es el más dulce recuerdo de mi vida
Yo tenía una esperanza
en el fondo de mi alma
Que un día te quedaras tú conmigo
Y aún guardaba una ilusion
que alimentaba al corazón,
mi corazón que hoy tiene que verte como sólo amigo
Y aunque viví enamorada y totalmente equivocada
No me importa,
porque esto sí fue amor
Por mi parte, lo más lindo, el más grande amor
Y aunque siempre lo renuncies, para mí
Fue lo más bello
Fue lo más bello
English Lyrics:I Have Nothing Left
I have nothing left
But to lose myself in an abyss of sadness and tears
I have nothing left
But to accept defeat and wish you happiness
I have nothing left
Your return today would be an impossib…

The Color Blue

Blue is my favorite color. Always has been. Always will be, it seems. It's not just for the guys. It is pretty. It is bold. It is feminine. It is a mood. To me, it's beautiful. In Spanish, it's called azul. It's the color of the sky, the ocean, of human and animal eyes. There are many shades of blue. Varied. Abstract. Simple. Brilliant. Bright. So many words describe the color blue.

Famous Quotes

"A sense of humor is a major defense against minor troubles."
Mignon McLaughlin

Famous Quotes

"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves."   Victor Frankl

Why Do You Dress So Boring?

People ask me why do I dress so boring? Well, I'm older yet not so wise and I dress the way I do because I'm about comfort. I'm not a fashion plate and I never will be. Don't ask for my advice because I won't know what to say. All you can do is be yourself. Dress any way you like but ALWAYS be true to yourself. If you get criticized, you can choose to ignore itor respond to it. Remember, you can't change other people but you can change the way you respond to things.
