    "Too many young women I think are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant. They are too often selling themselves short. They too often take criticism personally instead of seriously. You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient enough to keep moving forward, whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others. Believe me, this is hard-won advice I’m putting forth. It’s not like you wake up and understand this. It’s a process."
    Hilary Clinton, on taking criticism. (via ayabug)

Today I was shocked to learn that the “Egon Schiele” from the Grand Budapest Hotel was not actually painted by Egon Schiele but by “fan” artist Rich Pellegrino

According to security, the statue’s leg shattered under the weight of an unidentified student who had climbed onto it in the hopes of taking an amusing selfie.
