Best Quotes about Criticism

1.
Never make the mistake of assuming the critters will beat a path to your door.
Mascotte, John P.

2.
To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.
Hubbard, Elbert

3.
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

4.
What we ask of him is, that he should find out for us more than we can find out for ourselves. He must have the passion of a lover.
Symons, Arthur

5.
Every writer is necessarily a critic -- that is, each sentence is a skeleton accompanied by enormous activity of rejection; and each selection is governed by general principles concerning truth, force, beauty, and so on. The critic that is in every fabulist is like the iceberg -- nine-tenths of him is under water.
Wilder, Thornton

6.
To avoid criticism do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.
Elbert Hubbard

7.
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

8.
Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain - and most fools do.
Dale Carnegie

9.
The whole effort of a sincere man is to erect his personal impressions into laws.
Gourmont, Remy De

10.
As much as we thirst for approval we dread condemnation.
Selye, Hans

11.
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

12.
It is much easier to be critical than to be correct.
Disraeli, Benjamin

13.
Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamppost how it feels about dogs.
Christopher Hampton

14.
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

15.
If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me won't amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, then ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

16.
When the critics come around it's always too late.
Nolan, Sir Sidney

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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

20.
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

21.
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

22.
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

23.
The critic has to educate the public; the artist has to educate the critic.
Wilde, Oscar

24.
A man must serve his time to every trade save censure -- critics all are ready made.
Byron, Lord

25.
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

26.
Did some more sober critics come abroad? If wrong, I smil'd; if right, I kiss'd the rod.
Pope, Alexander

27.
The rule in carving holds good as to criticism; never cut with a knife what you can cut with a spoon.
Buxton, Charles

28.
Criticism should not be querulous and wasting, all knife and root-puller, but guiding, instructive, inspiring.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

29.
Neither praise or blame is the object of true criticism. Justly to discriminate, firmly to establish, wisely to prescribe, and honestly to award. These are the true aims and duties of criticism.
Simms, William Gilmore

30.
To criticize is to appreciate, to appropriate, to take intellectual possession, to establish in fine a relation with the criticized thing and to make it one's own.
James, Henry

31.
One cannot review a bad book without showing off.
W. H. Auden

32.
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

33.
It is just as hard to do your duty when men are sneering at you as when they are shouting at you.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

34.
You're never s good as everyone tells you when you win, and you're never as bad as they say when you lose.
Holtz, Lou

35.
Let me walk three weeks in the footsteps of my enemy, carry the same burden, have the same trials as he, before I say one word to criticize.

36.
No matter how well you perform there's always somebody of intelligent opinion who thinks it's lousy.
Olivier, Sir Lawrence

37.
When everyone is against you, it means you are absolutely wrong -- or you are absolutely right.
Guinon, Albert

38.
The good critic is he who relates the adventures of his soul among masterpieces.
France, Anatole

39.
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

40.
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

41.
When I am abroad, I always make it a rule to never criticize or attack the government of my own country. I make up for lost time when I come home.
Churchill, Winston

42.
Be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath.
Bible

43.
One does not lash hat lies at a distance. The foibles that we ridicule must at least be a little bit our own. Only then will the work be a part of our own flesh. The garden must be weeded.
Klee, Paul

44.
What the public criticizes in you, cultivate. It is you.
Cocteau, Jean

45.
Praise those of your critics for whom nothing is up to standard.
Hammarskjold, Dag

46.
Now, in reality, the world have paid too great a compliment to critics, and have imagined them to be men of much greater profundity than they really are.
Henry Fielding

47.
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

48.
Those who can -- do. Those who can't -- criticize.

49.
He who throws dirt always loses ground.

50.
Many great ideas have been lost because the people who had them could not stand being laughed at.
