Let us be indifferent to insults as well as to compliments.

Suzanne Aubert became adept at shaking the dust from her feet. Late in life she could say, “Let us be indifferent to insults as well as to compliments. Today, people will praise us to the sky, and tomorrow we will not be good enough to throw to the dogs. Today, we will be angels and tomorrow we will not be worth the rope to hang us.” (Directory 1, page 282)
