Don't Be a Kicker
It is easier to kick than to praise.
It is Kiss task to tear down than to
build up. The kicker gets the
center of the stage, many times,
while the worker is ignored. In
the final analysis, however, the
fault-finder generally kicks him
self out, and finds that his friends
and everything else have vanished
and people realize how insignifi
cant he is. Tiiere is another feat
ure. That is one's conscience.
Building up—even if for some one
else—gives unsatisfaction. If you
havr a bunch to complain and
grumble, stop a moment: see what
you can propose or do which will
be better. Don't complain of
is. simply because it exists: but
support it—unless you jean con
