Criticism quotes
Criticism
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
Don't abuse your friends and expect them to consider it criticism.

- Edgar W. Howe
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
Criticism is a misconception: we must read not to understand others but to understand ourselves.

- Cioran, E. M.
I am opposed to writing about the private lives of living authors and psychoanalyzing them while they are alive. Criticism is getting all mixed up with a combination of the Junior F.B.I. -men, discards from Freud and Jung and a sort of Columnist peep-hole and missing laundry list school. Every young English professor sees gold in them dirty sheets now. Imagine what they can do with the soiled sheets of four legal beds by the same writer and you can see why their tongues are slavering.

- Hemingway, Ernest
Blame is safer than praise.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
No sadder proof can be given of a person's own tiny stature, than their disbelief in great people.

- Carlyle, Thomas
If you must speak ill of another, do not speak it, write it in the sand near the water's edge

- Hill, Napoleon
In the arts, the critic is the only independent source of information. The rest is advertising.

- Kael, Pauline
Conventional people are roused to fury by departures from convention, largely because they regard such departures as a criticism of themselves.

- Russell, Bertrand
I much prefer a compliment, insincere or not, to sincere criticism.

- Titus Maccius Plautus
The literary critic, or the critic of any other specific form of artistic expression, may detach himself from the world for as long as the work of art he is contemplating appears to do the same.

- James, Clive
People ask for criticism, but they only want praise.

- Somerset Maugham
A louse in the locks of literature.

- Tennyson, Lord Alfred
Essays, entitled critical, are epistles addressed to the public, through which the mind of the recluse relieves itself of its impressions.

- Fuller, Margaret
I never read a book before reviewing it; it prejudices a man so.

- Smith, Sydney
The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.

- Peale, Norman Vincent
Animals are such agreeable friends, they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.

- Eliot, George
A drama critic is a person who surprises the playwright by informing him what he meant.

- Mizner, Wilson
The true critic is he who bears within himself the dreams and ideas and feelings of myriad generations, and to whom no form of thought is alien, no emotional impulse obscure.

- Wilde, Oscar
