Criticism

There are two insults no human will endure. The assertion that he has no sense of humor and the doubly impertinent assertion that he has never known trouble.
- Lewis, Sinclair
Criticism Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Criticism

1.
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

2.
The television critic, whatever his pretensions, does not labor in the same vineyard as those he criticizes; his grapes are all sour.
Raphael, Frederic

3.
When subjected to the rain of criticism, let?s not curse the rain. Let?s accept it as a part of life. Let?s remember that the more criticism we can successfully handle, the more zest we will experience in our lives.
Sinha, Shall

4.
The great critic must be a philosopher, for from philosophy he will learn serenity, impartiality, and the transitoriness of human things.
Maugham, W. Somerset

5.
Culture is only true when implicitly critical, and the mind which forgets this revenges itself in the critics it breeds. Criticism is an indispensable element of culture.
Adorno, Theodor W.

6.
If I care to listen to every criticism, let alone act on them, then this shop may as well be closed for all other businesses. I have learned to do my best, and if the end result is good then I do not care for any criticism, but if the end result is not good, then even the praise of ten angels would not make the difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

7.
Did some more sober critics come abroad? If wrong, I smil'd; if right, I kiss'd the rod.
Pope, Alexander

8.
Writing prejudicial, off-putting reviews is a precise exercise in applied black magic. The reviewer can draw free-floating disagreeable associations to a book by implying that the book is completely unimportant without saying exactly why, and carefully avoiding any clear images that could capture the reader's full attention.
Burroughs, William S.

9.
Criticism, that fine flower of personal expression in the garden of letters.
Conrad, Joseph

10.
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

11.
To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.
Hubbard, Elbert

12.
That is what the highest criticism really is, the record of one's own soul. It is more fascinating than history, as it is concerned simply with oneself. It is more delightful than philosophy, as its subject is concrete and not abstract, real and not vague. It is the only civilized form of autobiography.
Wilde, Oscar

13.
All the world's a stage, and all the clergymen critics.
Nunn, Gregory

14.
If what they are saying about you is true, mend your ways. If it isn't true, forget it, and go on and serve the Lord.
Ironside, H. A.

15.
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

16.
People who ask for your criticism want only praise.
Maugham, W. Somerset

17.
As much as we thirst for approval we dread condemnation.
Selye, Hans

18.
Satire is often the reflection of a kind of moral nausea.
Briton, Crand

19.
The text is merely one of the contexts of a piece of literature, its lexical or verbal one, no more or less important than the sociological, psychological, historical, anthropological or generic.
Fiedler, Leslie

20.
Criticism should not be querulous and wasting, all knife and root-puller, but guiding, instructive, inspiring.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

21.
Let us consider the critic, therefore, as a discoverer of discoveries.
Kundera, Milan

22.
Nature, when she invented, manufactured, and patented her authors, contrived to make critics out of the chips that were left.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

23.
Of all the cants which are canted in this canting world -- though the cant of hypocrites may be the worst -- the cant of criticism is the most tormenting!
Sterne, Laurence

24.
It is critical vision alone which can mitigate the unimpeded operation of the automatic.
Mcluhan, Marshall

25.
David Lynch came out of it a genius, and I came out of it a fat girl. I'm sorry that the only comment I get about the part is the way I look. [Commenting on the critics' response to her performance in Blue Velvet]
Rossellini, Isabella

26.
What the public criticizes in you, cultivate. It is you.
Cocteau, Jean

27.
The rule in carving holds good as to criticism; never cut with a knife what you can cut with a spoon.
Buxton, Charles

28.
Remember if people talk behind your back, it only means you're two steps ahead!
Flagg, Fannie

29.
Never retract, never explain, never apologize; get things done and let them howl.
Mcclung, Nellie

30.
Essays, entitled critical, are epistles addressed to the public, through which the mind of the recluse relieves itself of its impressions.
Fuller, Margaret

31.
When the critics come around it's always too late.
Nolan, Sir Sidney

32.
The easiest thing a human being can do is to criticize another human being.
Little, Lynn M.

33.
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

34.
The good critic is he who relates the adventures of his soul among masterpieces.
France, Anatole

35.
A sneer is the weapon of the weak.
Lowell, James Russell

36.
Honest criticism is hard to take, especially from a relative, a friend, an acquaintance, or a stranger.
Jones, Franklin P.

37.
In judging others, folks will work overtime for no pay.
Carruthers, Charles Edwin

38.
Those who have free seats at a play hiss first.
Proverb, Chinese

39.
Professional critics are incapable of distinguishing and appreciating either diamonds in the rough or gold in bars. They are traders, and in literature know only the coins that are current. Their critical lab has scales and weights, but neither crucible or touchstone.
Joubert, Joseph

40.
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

41.
Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamppost how it feels about dogs.
Christopher Hampton

42.
Most of us are umpires at heart; we like to call balls and strikes on somebody else.
Aikman, Leo

43.
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.

44.
You know lots of criticism is written by characters who are very academic and think it is a sign you are worthless if you make jokes or kid or even clown. I wouldn't kid Our Lord if he was on the cross. But I would attempt a joke with him if I ran into him chasing the money changers out of the temple.
Hemingway, Ernest

45.
Against criticism a man can neither protest nor defend himself; he must act in spite of it, and then it will gradually yield to him.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

46.
No sadder proof can be given of a person's own tiny stature, than their disbelief in great people.
Carlyle, Thomas

47.
There are two modes of criticism. One which crushes to earth without mercy all the humble buds of Phantasy, all the plants that, though green and fruitful, are also a prey to insects or have suffered by drought. It weeds well the garden, and cannot believe the weed in its native soil may be a pretty, graceful plant. There is another mode which enters into the natural history of every thing that breathes and lives, which believes no impulse to be entirely in vain, which scrutinizes circumstances, motive and object before it condemns, and believes there is a beauty in natural form, if its law and purpose be understood.
Fuller, Margaret

48.
Take heed of critics even when they are not fair; resist them even when they are.
Rostand, Jean

49.
Unless criticism refuses to take itself quite so seriously or at least to permit its readers not to, it will inevitably continue to reflect the finicky canons of the genteel tradition and the depressing pieties of the Culture Religion of Modernism.
Fiedler, Leslie

50.
The dread of criticism is the death of genius.
Simms, William Gilmore
