Criticism

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

Best Quotes about Criticism

1.
For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.

2.
Most of our censure of others is only oblique praise of self, uttered to show the wisdom and superiority of the speaker. It has all the invidiousness of self-praise, and all the ill-desert of falsehood.
Edwards, Tryon

3.
A good review from the critics is just another stay of execution.
Hoffman, Dustin

4.
Even the lion has to defend himself against flies.
Proverb, German

5.
If evil be spoken of you and it be true, correct yourself, if it be a lie, laugh at it.
Epictetus

6.
How much easier it is to be critical than to be correct.
Benjamin Disraeli

7.
The good critic is he who relates the adventures of his soul among masterpieces.
France, Anatole

8.
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

9.
People who ask for your criticism want only praise.
Maugham, W. Somerset

10.
The whole effort of a sincere man is to erect his personal impressions into laws.
Gourmont, Remy De

11.
A man must serve his time to every trade save censure -- critics all are ready made.
Byron, Lord

12.
It is critical vision alone which can mitigate the unimpeded operation of the automatic.
Mcluhan, Marshall

13.
Criticism, that fine flower of personal expression in the garden of letters.
Conrad, Joseph

14.
The greatest honor that can be paid to the work of art, on its pedestal of ritual display, is to describe it with sensory completeness. We need a science of description. Criticism is ceremonial revivification.
Paglia, Camille

15.
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

16.
A man generally has the good or ill qualities he attributes to mankind.
Shenstone, William

17.
Harsh counsels have no effect; they are like hammers which are always repulsed by the anvil.
Helvetius, Claude A.

18.
In reality, the world have paid too great a compliment to critics, and have imagined them men of much greater profundity than they really are.
Fielding, Henry

19.
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

20.
A louse in the locks of literature.
Tennyson, Lord Alfred

21.
Do not use a hatchet to remove a fly from your friend's forehead.
Proverb, Chinese

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Most of us are umpires at heart; we like to call balls and strikes on somebody else.
Aikman, Leo

25.
No sadder proof can be given of a person's own tiny stature, than their disbelief in great people.
Carlyle, Thomas

26.
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

27.
Unless a reviewer has the courage to give you unqualified praise, I say ignore the bastard.
Steinbeck, John

28.
They condemn what they do not understand.
Cicero, Marcus T.

29.
Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain - and most fools do.
Dale Carnegie

30.
When the critics come around it's always too late.
Nolan, Sir Sidney

31.
It is much easier to be critical than to be correct.
Disraeli, Benjamin

32.
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

33.
Be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath.
Bible

34.
A wise skepticism is the first attribute of a good critic.
Lowell, James Russell

35.
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

36.
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

37.
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

38.
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.

39.
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

40.
Good critical writing is measured by the perception and evaluation of the subject; bad critical writing by the necessity of maintaining the professional standing of the critic.
Chandler, Raymond

41.
Praise those of your critics for whom nothing is up to standard.
Hammarskjold, Dag

42.
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.

43.
Criticism should not be querulous and wasting, all knife and root-puller, but guiding, instructive, inspiring.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

44.
There's a fine line between participation and mockery.
Adams, Scott

45.
We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.
Beecher, Henry Ward

46.
Critics are those who have failed in literature and art.
Disraeli, Benjamin

47.
To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.
Hubbard, Elbert

48.
It is healthier, in any case, to write for the adults one's children will become than for the children one's mature critics often are.
Walker, Alice

49.
Each generation produces its squad of moderns with peashooters to attack Gibraltar.
Pollock, Channing

50.
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
