    Even a fool can sometimes speak truth…even if unintentionally! honest evaluation of criticism is hard, but worthwhile.

      Always worthwhile. If the criticism is false (and that of our enemies often is), if we’ve given an honest evaluation we can withstand it better, in the confidence that their criticism is meaningless.
