Criticism quotes
The rule in carving holds good as to criticism; never cut with a knife what you can cut with a spoon.

- Buxton, Charles
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
The rising power of the United States in world affairs requires, not a more compliant press, but a relentless barrage of facts and criticism. Our job in this age, as I see it, is not to serve as cheerleaders for our side in the present world struggle but to help the largest possible number of people to see the realities of the changing and convulsive world in which American policy must operate.

- Reston, James
He only profits from praise who values criticism.

- Heinrich Heine
Boredom, after all, is a form of criticism.

- William Phillips
I know quite certainly that I myself have no special talent; curiosity, obsession and dogged endurance, combined with self-criticism have brought me to my ideas.

- Einstein, Albert
They condemn what they do not understand.

- Cicero, Marcus T.
Criticism is a misconception: we must read not to understand others but to understand ourselves.

- Cioran, E. M.
Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man's growth without destroying his roots.

- Frank A. Clark
In certain kinds of writing, particularly in art criticism and literary criticism, it is normal to come across long passages which are almost completely lacking in meaning.

- George Orwell
Each generation produces its squad of moderns with peashooters to attack Gibraltar.

- Pollock, Channing
Critical articles, even the unjust, abusive kind, are usually met with a silent bow. Such is literary etiquette. Answering back goes against custom, and anyone who indulges in it is justly accused of excessive vanity. . . . The fate of literature (both major and minor) would be a pitiful one if it were at themercy of personal opinions. Point number one. And number two; there is no police force in existence that can consider itself competent in matters of literature. I agree that we canít do without the muzzle or the stick, because sharpers ooze their way into literature just as anywhere else. But no matter how hard you try, you wonít come up with a better police force for literature than criticism and the authorís own conscience. People have been at it since the beginning of creation, but theyíve invented nothing better.

- Anton Chekhov
No matter how well you perform there's always somebody of intelligent opinion who thinks it's lousy.

- Olivier, Sir Lawrence
What distinguishes modern art from the art of other ages is criticism.

- Paz, Octavio
How much easier it is to be critical than to be correct.

- Benjamin Disraeli
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
I never met anybody who said when they were a kid, "I wanna grow up and be a critic."

- Richard Pryor
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
Criticism is often not a science; it is a craft, requiring more good health than wit, more hard work than talent, more habit than native genius. In the hands of a man who has read widely but lacks judgment, applied to certain subjects it can corrupt both its readers and the writer himself.

- Bruyere, Jean De La
Writing criticism is to writing fiction and poetry as hugging the shore is to sailing in the open sea.

- Updike, John
