Best Quotes about Criticism

1.
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.

2.
The pleasure we feel in criticizing robs us from being moved by very beautiful things.
La Bruyere, Jean De

3.
Never criticize a man until you've walked a mile in his moccasins.
Native American Proverb

4.
Neither praise or blame is the object of true criticism. Justly to discriminate, firmly to establish, wisely to prescribe, and honestly to award. These are the true aims and duties of criticism.
Simms, William Gilmore

5.
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

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Critics are those who have failed in literature and art.
Disraeli, Benjamin

9.
Some people are always critical of vague statements. I tend rather to be critical of precise statements; they are the only ones which can correctly be labeled wrong.
Smullyan, Raymond

10.
Never retract, never explain, never apologize; get things done and let them howl.
Mcclung, Nellie

11.
Those who have free seats at a play hiss first.
Proverb, Chinese

12.
Did some more sober critics come abroad? If wrong, I smil'd; if right, I kiss'd the rod.
Pope, Alexander

13.
Though by whim, envy, or resentment led, they damn those authors whom they never read.
Churchill, Charles

14.
When a man spends his time giving his wife criticism and advice instead of compliments, he forgets that it was not his good judgment, but his charming manners, that won her heart.
Rowland, Helen

15.
I never met anybody who said when they were a kid, "I wanna grow up and be a critic."
Richard Pryor

16.
No degree of dullness can safeguard a work against the determination of critics to find it fascinating.
Harold Rosenberg

17.
Pay no attention to what the critics say... Remember, a statue has never been set up in honor of a critic!
Jean Sibelius

18.
If you must speak ill of another, do not speak it, write it in the sand near the water's edge
Hill, Napoleon

19.
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

20.
Nothing would improve newspaper criticism so much as the knowledge that it was to be read by men too hardy to acquiesce in the authoritative statement of the reviewer.
Hutton, R. H.

21.
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

22.
It is much easier to be critical than to be correct.
Disraeli, Benjamin

23.
A negative judgment gives you more satisfaction than praise, provided it smacks of jealousy.
Baudrillard, Jean

24.
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

25.
Praise or blame has but a momentary effect on the man whose love of beauty in the abstract makes him a severe critic on his own works.
Keats, John

26.
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.

27.
Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamp-post what it feels about dogs.
Hampton, Christopher

28.
Criticism should be a casual conversation.
Auden, W. H.

29.
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

30.
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

31.
A man must serve his time to every trade save censure -- critics all are ready made.
Byron, Lord

32.
To avoid criticism do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.
Elbert Hubbard

33.
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

34.
If you burn your neighbors house down, it doesn't make your house look any better.
Holtz, Lou

35.
Of course you're always at liberty to judge the critic. Judge people as critics, however, and you'll condemn them all!
James, Henry

36.
The great critic must be a philosopher, for from philosophy he will learn serenity, impartiality, and the transitoriness of human things.
Maugham, W. Somerset

37.
The television critic, whatever his pretensions, does not labor in the same vineyard as those he criticizes; his grapes are all sour.
Raphael, Frederic

38.
A wise skepticism is the first attribute of a good critic.
Lowell, James Russell

39.
Their is no defense against criticism except obscurity.
Addison, Joseph

40.
Critics are already made.
Byron, Lord

41.
Blame is safer than praise.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

42.
Doubtless criticism was originally benignant, pointing out the beauties of a work rather that its defects. The passions of men have made it malignant, as a bad heart of Procreates turned the bed, the symbol of repose, into an instrument of torture.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

43.
Writing criticism is to writing fiction and poetry as hugging the shore is to sailing in the open sea.
Updike, John

44.
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

45.
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

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

48.
Do not use a hatchet to remove a fly from your friend's forehead.
Proverb, Chinese

49.
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

50.
A drama critic is a person who surprises the playwright by informing him what he meant.
Mizner, Wilson
