This fantastic quote comes from Nasim Taleb (author of The Black Swan) via Timothy Ferriss (author of _The Four-Hour Work WeekI). _
Robustness is when you care more about the few who like your work than the multitude who hates it (artists); fragility is when you care more about the few who hate your work than the multitude who loves it (politicians).
Dazzling, really. Imagine what we could accomplish by ignoring the haters.
