"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."

"Drunken Satyr" / selfie mishap
On Tuesday, March 18th, 2014, this statue - a 19th-century plaster casting of a work dating back to the Hellenistic era - was damaged while on view at the Academy of Fine Arts Brera in Milan, Italy. 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.
