    Oh well – call me arrogant – I do prefer this one:
    Those who feel insulted by others, confess to their mental inferiority.

  2. I love both quotes!

  3. Yep … I simply ignore them! Good quote!

    I love your Black Eyed Susan’s Cherie…. and i like your quote by Rene Descartes today.

    This one came from my mother:
    “Those better than me wouldn’t insult me.
    But those lesser than me couldn’t insult me.”

    And i live by it….cheers;
