Criticism

“Do what you feel in your heart to be right — for you’ll be criticized anyway.”
— Eleanor Roosevelt

There is one thing I know: if you are making a choice purely because you think you will escape criticism, you are wrong. So you might as well do the thing you truly believe is right.

Wine-o-Clock

A Brazilian photographer documented his party guests after 0, 1, 2, and 3 glasses of wine. Honestly, after 2 and 3 glasses, everyone just looks so dang happy.

How do people look when they have been drinking? Pretty happy!
