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



Best Quotes about Criticism

1.
No man ever got very high by pulling other people down. The intelligent merchant does not knock his competitors. The sensible worker does not work those who work with him. Don't knock your friends. Don't knock your enemies. Don't knock yourself.
Tennyson, Lord Alfred

2.
It is much easier to be critical than to be correct.
Disraeli, Benjamin

3.
A man generally has the good or ill qualities he attributes to mankind.
Shenstone, William

4.
A good review from the critics is just another stay of execution.
Hoffman, Dustin

5.
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

6.
As much as we thirst for approval we dread condemnation.
Selye, Hans

7.
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

8.
I demand that my books be judged with utmost severity, by knowledgeable people who know the rules of grammar and of logic, and who will seek beneath the footsteps of my commas the lice of my thought in the head of my style.
Aragon, Louis

9.
A negative judgment gives you more satisfaction than praise, provided it smacks of jealousy.
Baudrillard, Jean

10.
Abuse if you slight it, will gradually die away; but if you show yourself irritated, you will be thought to have deserved it.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

11.
Critics are already made.
Byron, Lord

12.
Criticism is a misconception: we must read not to understand others but to understand ourselves.
Cioran, E. M.

13.
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.

14.
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

15.
Unlike other people, our reviewers are powerful because they believe in nothing.
Clurman, Harold

16.
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

17.
Not even the most powerful organs of the press, including Time, Newsweek, and The New York Times, can discover a new artist or certify his work and make it stick. They can only bring you the scores.
Wolfe, Thomas

18.
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

19.
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

20.
I review novels to make money, because it is easier for a sluggard to write an article a fortnight than a book a year, because the writer is soothed by the opiate of action, the crank by posing as a good journalist, and having an air hole. I dislike it. I do it and I am always resolving to give it up.
Connolly, Cyril

21.
Never retract, never explain, never apologize; get things done and let them howl.
Mcclung, Nellie

22.
Having a sharp tongue will cut your throat

23.
Let us consider the critic, therefore, as a discoverer of discoveries.
Kundera, Milan

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

25.
It is critical vision alone which can mitigate the unimpeded operation of the automatic.
Mcluhan, Marshall

26.
No degree of dullness can safeguard a work against the determination of critics to find it fascinating.
Harold Rosenberg

27.
To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.
Hubbard, Elbert

28.
The rule in carving holds good as to criticism; never cut with a knife what you can cut with a spoon.
Buxton, Charles

29.
Nature, when she invented, manufactured, and patented her authors, contrived to make critics out of the chips that were left.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

30.
Post-modernism has cut off the present from all futures. The daily media add to this by cutting off the past. Which means that critical opinion is often orphaned in the present.
Berger, John

31.
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

32.
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

33.
The author himself is the best judge of his own performance; none has so deeply meditated on the subject; none is so sincerely interested in the event.
Gibbon, Edward

34.
No sadder proof can be given of a person's own tiny stature, than their disbelief in great people.
Carlyle, Thomas

35.
In judging others, folks will work overtime for no pay.
Carruthers, Charles Edwin

36.
What the public criticizes in you, cultivate. It is you.
Cocteau, Jean

37.
Any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae.
Kurt Vonnegut

38.
Blame is safer than praise.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

39.
Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain - and most fools do.
Dale Carnegie

40.
A drama critic is a person who surprises the playwright by informing him what he meant.
Mizner, Wilson

41.
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

42.
I'd rather be hissed at for a good verse, than applauded for a bad one.
Hugo, Victor

43.
All the world's a stage, and all the clergymen critics.
Nunn, Gregory

44.
The easiest thing a human being can do is to criticize another human being.
Little, Lynn M.

45.
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

46.
If I make a move, like raise my eyebrows, some critic says I'm doing Nicholson. What am I supposed to do, cut off my eyebrows?
Slater, Christian

47.
Critics are those who have failed in literature and art.
Disraeli, Benjamin

48.
Any critic is entitled to wrong judgments, of course. But certain lapses of judgment indicate the radical failure of an entire sensibility.
Sontag, Susan

49.
A louse in the locks of literature.
Tennyson, Lord Alfred

50.
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
