Criticism

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

Best Quotes about Criticism

1.
There's a fine line between participation and mockery.
Adams, Scott

2.
When I am abroad, I always make it a rule to never criticize or attack the government of my own country. I make up for lost time when I come home.
Churchill, Winston

3.
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

4.
Critical remarks are only made by people who love you.
Mayor, Federico

5.
For if there is anything to one's praise, it is foolish vanity to be gratified at it, and if it is abuse -- why one is always sure to hear of it from one damned good-natured friend or another!
Sheridan, Richard Brinsley

6.
In an age of unscrupulous and shameless book-making, it is a duty to give notice of the rubbish that cumbers the ground. There is no credit, no real power required for this task. It is the work of an intellectual scavenger, and far from being specially honorable.
Hutton, R. H.

7.
In my conscience I believe the baggage loves me, for she never speaks well of me herself, nor suffers any body else to rail at me.
Congreve, William

8.
The person of analytic or critical intellect finds something ridiculous in everything. The person of synthetic or constructive intellect, in almost nothing.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Many great ideas have been lost because the people who had them could not stand being laughed at.

12.
I'd rather be hissed at for a good verse, than applauded for a bad one.
Hugo, Victor

13.
Take heed of critics even when they are not fair; resist them even when they are.
Rostand, Jean

14.
One cannot review a bad book without showing off.
W. H. Auden

15.
The easiest thing a human being can do is to criticize another human being.
Little, Lynn M.

16.
Honest criticism means nothing: what one wants is unrestrained passion, fire for fire.
Miller, Henry

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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.

20.
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

21.
All my life people have said that I wasn't going to make it.
Turner, Ted

22.
There is an air of last things, a brooding sense of impending annihilation, about so much deconstructive activity, in so many of its guises; it is not merely postmodernist but preapocalyptic.
Lehman, David

23.
Though by whim, envy, or resentment led, they damn those authors whom they never read.
Churchill, Charles

24.
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

25.
God knows people who are paid to have attitudes toward things, professional critics, make me sick; camp following eunuchs of literature. They won't even whore. They're all virtuous and sterile. And how well meaning and high minded. But they're all camp followers.
Hemingway, Ernest

26.
Hardly a book of human worth, be it heaven's own secret, is honestly placed before the reader; it is either shunned, given a Periclean funeral oration in a hundred and fifty words, or interred in the potter's field of the newspapers back pages.
Dahlberg, Edward

27.
Pay no attention to what the critics say... Remember, a statue has never been set up in honor of a critic!
Jean Sibelius

28.
Essays, entitled critical, are epistles addressed to the public, through which the mind of the recluse relieves itself of its impressions.
Fuller, Margaret

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.
He who throws dirt always loses ground.

31.
Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain - and most fools do.
Dale Carnegie

32.
It is from the womb of art that criticism was born.
Baudelaire, Charles

33.
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

34.
Of course you're always at liberty to judge the critic. Judge people as critics, however, and you'll condemn them all!
James, Henry

35.
Never make the mistake of assuming the critters will beat a path to your door.
Mascotte, John P.

36.
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

37.
Any authentic work of art must start an argument between the artist and his audience.
West, Rebecca

38.
Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamppost how it feels about dogs.
Christopher Hampton

39.
It is impossible to think of a man of any actual force and originality, universally recognized as having those qualities, who spent his whole life appraising and describing the work of other men.
Mencken, H. L.

40.
Strike the dog dead, it's but a critic!
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

41.
What the public criticizes in you, cultivate. It is you.
Cocteau, Jean

42.
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

43.
Criticism should be a casual conversation.
Auden, W. H.

44.
The dread of criticism is the death of genius.
Simms, William Gilmore

45.
Criticism comes easier than craftsmanship.
Zeuxis

46.
It is very perplexing how an intrepid frontier people, who fought a wilderness, floods, tornadoes, and the Rockies, cower before criticism, which is regarded as a malignant tumor in the imagination.
Dahlberg, Edward

47.
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

48.
Criticism, as it was first instituted by Aristotle, was meant as a standard of judging well.
Johnson, Samuel

49.
All the world's a stage, and all the clergymen critics.
Nunn, Gregory

50.
We have our little theory on all human and divine things. Poetry, the workings of genius itself, which, in all times, with one or another meaning, has been called Inspiration, and held to be mysterious and inscrutable, is no longer without its scientific exposition. The building of the lofty rhyme is like any other masonry or bricklaying: we have theories of its rise, height, decline and fall -- which latter, it would seem, is now near, among all people.
Carlyle, Thomas
