"If one man calls you an ass, ignore him.
If two men call you an ass, start looking for tracks.
If three men call you an ass, put on a harness." Chinese proverb
"Business Lexington" - June 3, 2005.
Someone recently asked about a similar expression. I think the question was whether we have a saying like that in English. (And, yes, I know it's probably not a Chinese proverb.)
