Fortune Comes From Accepting Criticism

Photo by Yan Ming on Unsplash. Can you find the four-leaf clover?

“If I make others feel bad for trying to criticize me, then people would be scared to criticize me in the future.”

“Put a slab of copper as a mirror before me, and I can straighten my robe. Put history as a mirror before me, and I can identify the alarming signs of rise and fall in a dynasty. Have a man as a mirror who reflects my flaws, and I can rectify my mistakes. I constantly keep these three mirrors to prevent me from making mistakes. Now that Wei Zheng has passed away, I have lost a mirror!”

“If you can’t accept criticism yourself, how can you criticize others?”
