Here's Blog Quote #618...
"You're never as good as they say you are--and you're never as bad as they say you are."
In other words--
There is no need for cockiness.
On the flip side--don't get all caught up in despair, or too bummed out--of a critic or two.
Life has a peculiar way-- of picking you up when you are down and out. It also can kick you in the teeth with sudden power, when you are riding high as a kite.
Moderation in everything, friends.
That's my view...what say you?
