Social criticism begins with grammar and the re-establishing of meanings.
Paz, Octavio

The strength of criticism lies in the weakness of the thing criticized.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

3.
No matter how well you perform there's always somebody of intelligent opinion who thinks it's lousy.
Olivier, Sir Lawrence

Since we cannot attain unto it, let us revenge ourselves with railing against it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

5.
Criticism, that fine flower of personal expression in the garden of letters.
Conrad, Joseph

Do what you feel in your heart to be right. You'll be criticized anyway.
Roosevelt, Eleanor

7.
A man generally has the good or ill qualities he attributes to mankind.
Shenstone, William

Criticism comes easier than craftsmanship.
Zeuxis

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

10.
There has never been a statue erected to honor a critic.
Ziglar, Zig

11.
Writing about music is like dancing about architecture; it's a really stupid thing to want to do.
Costello, Elvis

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

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

Rostand, Jean

Those who can -- do. Those who can't -- criticize.

16.
Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain - and most fools do.
Dale Carnegie

17.
The text is merely one of the contexts of a piece of literature, its lexical or verbal one, no more or less important than the sociological, psychological, historical, anthropological or generic.
Fiedler, Leslie

18.
When everyone is against you, it means you are absolutely wrong -- or you are absolutely right.
Guinon, Albert

19.
Criticism is an indirect form of self-boasting.
Fox, Dr. Emmit

20.
Having a sharp tongue will cut your throat

21.
A reader who quarrels with postulates, who dislikes Hamlet because he does not believe that there are ghosts or that people speak in pentameters, clearly has no business in literature. He cannot distinguish fiction from fact, and belongs in the same category as the people who send checks to radio stations for the relief of suffering heroines in soap operas.
Frye, Northrop

22.
Critics are already made.
Byron, Lord

23.

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.

27.
Be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath.
Bible

28.
Essays, entitled critical, are epistles addressed to the public, through which the mind of the recluse relieves itself of its impressions.
Fuller, Margaret

29.
I never read a book before reviewing it; it prejudices a man so.
Smith, Sydney

30.
I consider criticism merely a preliminary excitement, a statement of things a writer has to clear up in his own head sometime or other, probably antecedent to writing; of no value unless it come to fruit in the created work later.
Pound, Ezra

31.
If all printers were determined not to print anything till they were sure it would offend nobody, there would be very little printed.
Franklin, Benjamin

32.
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

33.
The great critic must be a philosopher, for from philosophy he will learn serenity, impartiality, and the transitoriness of human things.
Maugham, W. Somerset

34.
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

35.
He who throws dirt always loses ground.

36.
As much as we thirst for approval we dread condemnation.
Selye, Hans

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.
Professional critics are incapable of distinguishing and appreciating either diamonds in the rough or gold in bars. They are traders, and in literature know only the coins that are current. Their critical lab has scales and weights, but neither crucible or touchstone.
Joubert, Joseph

39.
We might remind ourselves that criticism is as inevitable as breathing, and that we should be none the worse for articulating what passes in our minds when we read a book and feel an emotion about it, for criticizing our own minds in their work of criticism.
Eliot, T. S.

40.
Honest criticism is hard to take, particularly from a relative, a friend, an acquaintance, or a stranger.
Franklin P. Jones

41.
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.

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.
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

44.
Criticism should be a casual conversation.
Auden, W. H.

45.
Even the lion has to defend himself against flies.
Proverb, German

46.
Much literary criticism comes from people for whom extreme specialization is a cover for either grave cerebral inadequacy or terminal laziness, the latter being a much cherished aspect of academic freedom.
Galbraith, John Kenneth

47.
Many great ideas have been lost because the people who had them could not stand being laughed at.

48.
Let me tell you something that we Israelis have against Moses. He took us 40 years through the desert in order to bring us to the one spot in the Middle East that has no oil!
Meir, Golda

49.
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

50.
Prolonged, indiscriminate reviewing of books is a quite exceptionally thankless, irritating and exhausting job. It not only involves praising trash but constantly inventing reactions towards books about which one has no spontaneous feeling whatever.
Orwell, George
