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

Best Quotes about Criticism

1.
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

2.
When everyone is against you, it means you are absolutely wrong -- or you are absolutely right.
Guinon, Albert

3.
Self-laudation abounds among the unpolished, but nothing can stamp a man more sharply as ill-bred.
Buxton, Charles

4.
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

5.
A good review from the critics is just another stay of execution.
Hoffman, Dustin

6.
Did some more sober critics come abroad? If wrong, I smil'd; if right, I kiss'd the rod.
Pope, Alexander

7.
The critical method which denies literary modernity would appear -- and even, in certain respects, would be -- the most modern of critical movements.
Man, Paul De

8.
In judging others, folks will work overtime for no pay.
Carruthers, Charles Edwin

9.
Post-modernism has cut off the present from all futures. The daily media add to this by cutting off the past. Which means that critical opinion is often orphaned in the present.
Berger, John

10.
No sadder proof can be given of a person's own tiny stature, than their disbelief in great people.
Carlyle, Thomas

11.
You should never assume contempt for that which it is not very manifest that you have it in your power to possess, nor does a wit ever make a more contemptible figure than when, in attempting satire, he shows that he does not understand that which he would make the subject of his ridicule.
Melbourne, Lord

12.
Strike the dog dead, it's but a critic!
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

13.
After all, one knows one's weak points so well, that it's rather bewildering to have the critics overlook them and invent others.
Edith Wharton

14.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right. You'll be criticized anyway.
Roosevelt, Eleanor

15.
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.
Woolf, Virginia

16.
Never trust the artist. Trust the tale. The proper function of a critic is to save the tale from the artist who created it.
Lawrence, D. H.

17.
A good drama critic is one who perceives what is happening in the theatre of his time. A great drama critic also perceives what is not happening.
Tynan, Kenneth

18.
Reviewers, with some rare exceptions, are a most stupid and malignant race. As a bankrupt thief turns thief-taker in despair, so an unsuccessful author turns critic.
Shelley, Percy Bysshe

19.
The aim of all commentary on art now should be to make works of art -- and, by analogy, our own experience -- more, rather than less, real to us. The function of criticism should be to show how it is what it is, even that it is what it is, rather than to show what it means.
Sontag, Susan

20.
I know I'm never as good or bad as one single performance. I've never believed in my critics or my worshippers, and I've always been able to leave the game at the arena.
Barkley, Charles

21.
Take heed of critics even when they are not fair; resist them even when they are.
Rostand, Jean

22.
Do not use a hatchet to remove a fly from your friend's forehead.
Proverb, Chinese

23.
Honest criticism means nothing: what one wants is unrestrained passion, fire for fire.
Miller, Henry

24.
I remember when I was in college, people told me I couldn't play in the NBA. There's always somebody saying you can't do it, and those people have to be ignored.
Cartwright, Bill

25.
Be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath.
Bible

26.
Criticism is prejudice made plausible.
H. L. Mencken

27.
No degree of dullness can safeguard a work against the determination of critics to find it fascinating.
Harold Rosenberg

28.
Men over forty are no judges of a book written in a new spirit.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

29.
Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamp-post what it feels about dogs.
Hampton, Christopher

30.
For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.

31.
I never met anybody who said when they were a kid, "I wanna grow up and be a critic."
Richard Pryor

32.
Let me tell you something that we Israelis have against Moses. He took us 40 years through the desert in order to bring us to the one spot in the Middle East that has no oil!
Meir, Golda

33.
The dread of criticism is the death of genius.
Simms, William Gilmore

34.
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

35.
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

36.
Those who have free seats at a play hiss first.
Proverb, Chinese

37.
What the public criticizes in you, cultivate. It is you.
Cocteau, Jean

38.
Remember if people talk behind your back, it only means you're two steps ahead!
Flagg, Fannie

39.
They condemn what they do not understand.
Cicero, Marcus T.

40.
Since we cannot attain unto it, let us revenge ourselves with railing against it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

41.
Harsh counsels have no effect; they are like hammers which are always repulsed by the anvil.
Helvetius, Claude A.

42.
Any jackass can kick a barn down, but it takes a carpenter to build it.
Rayburn, Sam

43.
The strength of criticism lies in the weakness of the thing criticized.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

44.
A film is just like a muffin. You make it. You put it on the table. One person might say, Oh, I don't like it. One might say it's the best muffin ever made. One might say it's an awful muffin. It's hard for me to say. It's for me to make the muffin.
Washington, Denzel

45.
Every writer is necessarily a critic -- that is, each sentence is a skeleton accompanied by enormous activity of rejection; and each selection is governed by general principles concerning truth, force, beauty, and so on. The critic that is in every fabulist is like the iceberg -- nine-tenths of him is under water.
Wilder, Thornton

46.
Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain - and most fools do.
Dale Carnegie

47.
A drama critic is a person who surprises the playwright by informing him what he meant.
Mizner, Wilson

48.
Criticism is an indirect form of self-boasting.
Fox, Dr. Emmit

49.
You know what the critics are. If you tell the truth they only say you're cynical and it does an author no good to get a reputation for cynicism.
Maugham, W. Somerset

50.
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
