For decades now I’ve been doing my stuff and bracing myself for emails and tweets. I’d spent an entire career conflating preference with criticism. I’ve been holding up tiny articles of clothing to strangers and waiting for the scream. Here’s what my daughter taught me: You can’t win. Everyone sobs it out, puts on their pants, and gets on with their day.

— Bob Sherron, from “My daughter, the user”

I love this quote… to me it’s a reminder to stand by one’s work and to have discernment regarding incoming commentary.
