Criticism

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

Best Quotes about Criticism

1.
A bad review is even less important than whether it is raining in Patagonia.
Murdoch, Iris

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

3.
Did some more sober critics come abroad? If wrong, I smil'd; if right, I kiss'd the rod.
Pope, Alexander

4.
Do not use a hatchet to remove a fly from your friend's forehead.
Proverb, Chinese

5.
As a work of art it has the same status as a long conversation between two not very bright drunks.
James, Clive

6.
Criticism is prejudice made plausible.
H. L. Mencken

7.
As much as we thirst for approval we dread condemnation.
Selye, Hans

8.
If you burn your neighbors house down, it doesn't make your house look any better.
Holtz, Lou

9.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right. You'll be criticized anyway.
Roosevelt, Eleanor

10.
Since we cannot attain unto it, let us revenge ourselves with railing against it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

11.
To criticize is to appreciate, to appropriate, to take intellectual possession, to establish in fine a relation with the criticized thing and to make it one's own.
James, Henry

12.
It is wrong to be harsh with the New York critics, unless one admits in the same breath that it is a condition of their existence that they should write entertainingly about something which is rarely worth writing about at all.
Chandler, Raymond

13.
Critics are already made.
Byron, Lord

14.
Now, in reality, the world have paid too great a compliment to critics, and have imagined them to be men of much greater profundity than they really are.
Henry Fielding

15.
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

16.
Let us consider the critic, therefore, as a discoverer of discoveries.
Kundera, Milan

Criticism is a study by which men grow important and formidable at very small expense. He whom nature has made weak, and idleness keeps ignorant, may yet support his vanity by the name of a critic.
Johnson, Samuel

18.
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

If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me won't amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, then ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

23.
It is critical vision alone which can mitigate the unimpeded operation of the automatic.
Mcluhan, Marshall

24.
Abuse if you slight it, will gradually die away; but if you show yourself irritated, you will be thought to have deserved it.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

25.
Nothing is as peevish and pedantic as men's judgments of one another.
Erasmus, Desiderius

26.
Prolonged, indiscriminate reviewing of books is a quite exceptionally thankless, irritating and exhausting job. It not only involves praising trash but constantly inventing reactions towards books about which one has no spontaneous feeling whatever.
Orwell, George

27.
Criticism should not be querulous and wasting, all knife and root-puller, but guiding, instructive, inspiring.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

28.
A man must serve his time to every trade save censure -- critics all are ready made.
Byron, Lord

29.
What the public criticizes in you, cultivate. It is you.
Cocteau, Jean

30.
It is much easier to be critical than to be correct.
Disraeli, Benjamin

The author himself is the best judge of his own performance; none has so deeply meditated on the subject; none is so sincerely interested in the event.
Gibbon, Edward

32.
It is the nature of the artist to mind excessively what is said about him. Literature is strewn with the wreckage of men who have minded beyond reason the opinions of others.

Though by whim, envy, or resentment led, they damn those authors whom they never read.
Churchill, Charles

34.
Criticism comes easier than craftsmanship.
Zeuxis

35.
I never met anybody who said when they were a kid, "I wanna grow up and be a critic."
Richard Pryor

36.
Pay no attention to what the critics say... Remember, a statue has never been set up in honor of a critic!
Jean Sibelius

37.
A critic is a man who knows the way, but can't drive the car.
Tynan, Kenneth

38.
The literary critic, or the critic of any other specific form of artistic expression, may detach himself from the world for as long as the work of art he is contemplating appears to do the same.
James, Clive

39.
The rule in carving holds good as to criticism; never cut with a knife what you can cut with a spoon.
Buxton, Charles

40.
Writing about music is like dancing about architecture; it's a really stupid thing to want to do.
Costello, Elvis

41.
Give a critic an inch, he'll write a play.
Steinbeck, John

42.
Social criticism begins with grammar and the re-establishing of meanings.
Paz, Octavio

43.
The avocation of assessing the failures of better men can be turned into a comfortable livelihood, providing you back it up with a Ph.D.
Algren, Nelson

44.
A good review from the critics is just another stay of execution.
Hoffman, Dustin

45.
The critic has to educate the public; the artist has to educate the critic.
Wilde, Oscar

Hemingway, Ernest

47.
There is then creative reading as well as creative writing. When the mind is braced by labor and invention, the page of whatever book we read becomes luminous with manifold allusion. Every sentence is doubly significant, and the sense of our author is as broad as the world.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

48.
Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain - and most fools do.
Dale Carnegie

49.
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

50.
All my life people have said that I wasn't going to make it.
Turner, Ted
