Criticism Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Criticism

1.
Let me walk three weeks in the footsteps of my enemy, carry the same burden, have the same trials as he, before I say one word to criticize.

2.
Essays, entitled critical, are epistles addressed to the public, through which the mind of the recluse relieves itself of its impressions.
Fuller, Margaret

3.
Critical remarks are only made by people who love you.
Mayor, Federico

4.
The rule in carving holds good as to criticism; never cut with a knife what you can cut with a spoon.
Buxton, Charles

5.
It is just as hard to do your duty when men are sneering at you as when they are shouting at you.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

6.
Temperament is the primary requisite for the critic -- a temperament exquisitely susceptible to beauty, and to the various impressions that beauty gives us.
Wilde, Oscar

7.
Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamppost how it feels about dogs.
Christopher Hampton

8.
What we ask of him is, that he should find out for us more than we can find out for ourselves. He must have the passion of a lover.
Symons, Arthur

9.
In judging others, folks will work overtime for no pay.
Carruthers, Charles Edwin

10.
Let us consider the critic, therefore, as a discoverer of discoveries.
Kundera, Milan

11.
A drama critic is a person who surprises the playwright by informing him what he meant.
Mizner, Wilson

12.
Those who have free seats at a play hiss first.
Proverb, Chinese

13.
Nothing is as peevish and pedantic as men's judgments of one another.
Erasmus, Desiderius

14.
Unlike other people, our reviewers are powerful because they believe in nothing.
Clurman, Harold

15.
The dread of criticism is the death of genius.
Simms, William Gilmore

16.
People want you to be a crazy, out-of-control teen brat. They want you miserable, just like them. They don't want heroes; what they want is to see you fall.
DiCaprio, Leonardo

17.
Give me the critic bred in Nature's school, who neither talks by rote, nor thinks by rule; who feeling's honest dictates still obeys, and dares, without a precedent, to praise.
Shee, Sir Martin Archer

18.
Never make the mistake of assuming the critters will beat a path to your door.
Mascotte, John P.

19.
Take heed of critics even when they are not fair; resist them even when they are.
Rostand, Jean

20.
The strength of criticism lies in the weakness of the thing criticized.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

21.
The television critic, whatever his pretensions, does not labor in the same vineyard as those he criticizes; his grapes are all sour.
Raphael, Frederic

22.
One of the grotesqueries of present-day American life is the amount of reasoning that goes into displaying the wisdom secreted in bad movies while proving that modern art is meaningless. They have put into practice the notion that a bad art work cleverly interpreted according to some obscure Method is more rewarding than a masterpiece wrapped in silence.
Rosenberg, Harold

23.
A louse in the locks of literature.
Tennyson, Lord Alfred

24.
Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon. When we love a woman we don't start measuring her limbs.
Picasso, Pablo

25.
Nature, when she invented, manufactured, and patented her authors, contrived to make critics out of the chips that were left.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

26.
Good critical writing is measured by the perception and evaluation of the subject; bad critical writing by the necessity of maintaining the professional standing of the critic.
Chandler, Raymond

27.
The true critic is he who bears within himself the dreams and ideas and feelings of myriad generations, and to whom no form of thought is alien, no emotional impulse obscure.
Wilde, Oscar

28.
You should not say it is not good. You should say you do not like it; and then, you know, you're perfectly safe.
Whistler, James Mcneill

29.
Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do criticize him, you'll be a mile away and have his shoes.

30.
The whole effort of a sincere man is to erect his personal impressions into laws.
Gourmont, Remy De

31.
All the world's a stage, and all the clergymen critics.
Nunn, Gregory

32.
Be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath.
Bible

33.
To avoid criticism do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.
Elbert Hubbard

34.
In most modern instances, interpretation amounts to the philistine refusal to leave the work of art alone. Real art has the capacity to make us nervous. By reducing the work of art to its content and then interpreting that, one tames the work of art. Interpretation makes art manageable, conformable.
Sontag, Susan

35.
Many great ideas have been lost because the people who had them could not stand being laughed at.

36.
Not even the most powerful organs of the press, including Time, Newsweek, and The New York Times, can discover a new artist or certify his work and make it stick. They can only bring you the scores.
Wolfe, Thomas

37.
No man ever got very high by pulling other people down. The intelligent merchant does not knock his competitors. The sensible worker does not work those who work with him. Don't knock your friends. Don't knock your enemies. Don't knock yourself.
Tennyson, Lord Alfred

38.
It is healthier, in any case, to write for the adults one's children will become than for the children one's mature critics often are.
Walker, Alice

39.
A sneer is the weapon of the weak.
Lowell, James Russell

40.
Unless a reviewer has the courage to give you unqualified praise, I say ignore the bastard.
Steinbeck, John

41.
One cannot review a bad book without showing off.
W. H. Auden

42.
I would rather be attacked than unnoticed. For the worst thing you can do to an author is to be silent as to his works. An assault upon a town is a bad thing; but starving it is still worse.
Johnson, Samuel

43.
Never retract, never explain, never apologize; get things done and let them howl.
Mcclung, Nellie

44.
One does not lash hat lies at a distance. The foibles that we ridicule must at least be a little bit our own. Only then will the work be a part of our own flesh. The garden must be weeded.
Klee, Paul

45.
Critics are those who have failed in literature and art.
Disraeli, Benjamin

46.
The art of the critic in a nutshell: to coin slogans without betraying ideas. The slogans of an inadequate criticism peddle ideas to fashion.
Benjamin, Walter

47.
Reviewers are usually people who would have been, poets, historians, biographer, if they could. They have tried their talents at one thing or another and have failed; therefore they turn critic.
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor

48.
All my life people have said that I wasn't going to make it.
Turner, Ted

49.
Never criticize a man until you've walked a mile in his moccasins.
Native American Proverb

50.
Criticism of others is futile and if you indulge in it often you should be warned that it can be fatal to your career.
Carnegie, Dale
