Critics quotes by Robertson Davies
#1. To this day I am indulgent toward orchestras that are trying to lift themselves in the world, while critics are busy assuring them that they are not the Vienna Philharmonic and never will be. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Critics quotes by John Campbell Shairp
#2. Criticism is not religion, and by no process can it be substituted for it. It is not the critic's eye, but the child's heart, that most truly discerns the countenance that looks out from the pages of the gospel. #Quote by John Campbell Shairp
Critics quotes by James Bay
#3. The Internet is the Wild West of the world, where anybody can throw anything down. Everything can be as relevant as the next thing; it doesn't matter who posts it. In that environment, the Critics' Choice is still very important. #Quote by James Bay
Critics quotes by Storm Jameson
#4. The critic's hankering to be law-giver rather than servant of literature is irrepressible. #Quote by Storm Jameson
Critics quotes by Stephen Beal
#5. On Becoming a Poet in the 1950s"

There was love and there was trees.
Either you could stay inside and probe your emotions
or you could go outside and keenly observe nature.
Describe the sheen on carapaces,
the effect of breeze on grass.

What's the fag doing now? Dad would say.
Picking the nose of his heart?
Wanking off on a daffodil?

He's not homosexual, Mom would retort, using her apron as a potholder to
remove the apple brown betty from the oven.
He's sensitive. He cares.
He wishes to impart values and standards to an indifferent world.

Wow! said Dad, stomping off to the pantry for another scotch. Two poets in
the family. Ain't I a lucky duck?

As fate would have it, I became one of your tweedy English teachers, what
Dad would call a daffodil-wanker,
and Mom ended up doing needlepoint, seventy-two kneelers for St. Fred's
before she expired of the heart broken on the afternoon that Dad
roared off with the Hell's Angels.
We heard a little from Big Sur. A beard. Tattoos. A girlfriend named Strawberry.
A boyfriend named Thor.
Bars and pot and coffeehouses, stuff like that.

After years of quotation by younger poets, admiration but no real notice,
Dad is making the anthologies now.
Critics cite his primal rage, the way he nails Winnetka. #Quote by Stephen Beal
Critics quotes by Walter Kirn
#6. I studied English at Princeton in the early eighties in what I consider a period of high obscurity. Professors and students ran around discussing the work of critics and philosophers that I doubt they'd read or understood. #Quote by Walter Kirn
Critics quotes by Lord Byron
#7. Critics are already made. #Quote by Lord Byron
Critics quotes by David Gerrold
#8. The most useless job in the world is that of the critic. That is a prejudiced statement. I admit it. I'm prejudiced. I hate critics ... And now, as the saying goes (yesterday, I couldn't even spell critik), and now I are one. #Quote by David Gerrold
Critics quotes by David Sax
#9. Just as the digital dominance of the recording studio seemed complete, analog had its revenge. Musicians, producers, and engineers searching for the sound of the music that inspired them - roots Americana, blues, and classic rock - began thinking about how the process of recording affected the sound. These artists, including White, Dave Grohl, and Gillian Welch, began experimenting with old tape machines and vintage studio equipment, returning to the analog methods they'd once used. Critics and fans noted that these albums sounded different - more heartfelt, raw, and organic - and the industry began to take notice. #Quote by David Sax
Critics quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#10. Creationist critics often charge that evolution cannot be tested, and therefore cannot be viewed as a properly scientific subject at all. This claim is rhetorical nonsense. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Critics quotes by Cilla Black
#11. I was so ordinary, critics couldn't understand it, but looking back, that was the reason for my success. What you see is what you get. People thought, 'I could do that.' #Quote by Cilla Black
Critics quotes by Robert Hughes
#12. One gets tired of the role critics are supposed to have in this culture: It's like being the piano player in a whorehouse; you don't have any control over the action going on upstairs. #Quote by Robert Hughes
Critics quotes by Paul Bocuse
#13. Critics are like eunuchs: they know how, but they can't do it. #Quote by Paul Bocuse
Critics quotes by Ron Brackin
#14. There's no such thing as good art or bad art. Art is popular or unpopular. What is banned in Boston may be bid on at Christie's. #Quote by Ron Brackin
Critics quotes by Khalil Gibran
#15. The creator gives no heed to the critic unless he becomes a barren inventor. #Quote by Khalil Gibran
Critics quotes by Todd Phillips
#16. Well, it's so cheesy to say but you can't find a comedy director who makes movies for critics. When a movie does $580 million worldwide, I'm not saying that proves anything except people were enjoying the experience. #Quote by Todd Phillips
Critics quotes by Willard Scott
#17. The critics - how come you never see any of them on TV? #Quote by Willard Scott
Critics quotes by Theophile Gautier
#18. [The critic] serves up his erudition in strong doses; he pours out all the knowledge he got up the day before in some library or other, and treats in heathenish fashion people at whose feet he ought to sit, and the most ignorant of whom could give points to much wiser men than he.
Authors bear this sort of thing with a magnanimity and a patience that are really incomprehensible. For, after all, who are those critics, who with their trenchant tone, their dicta, might be supposed sons of the gods? They are simply fellows who were at college with us, and who have turned their studies to less account, since they have not produced anything, and can do no more than soil and spoil the works of others, like true stymphalid vampires. #Quote by Theophile Gautier
Critics quotes by Suzanne Fields
#19. Many critics of the Palestinians, especially those in Congress, think the current calm is merely the eye of the storm. That's why the House of Representatives approved a foreign aid package last week that forbade the direct financial assistance to the Palestinian Authority . #Quote by Suzanne Fields
Critics quotes by Richard Livingstone
#20. There is no virtue in being uncritical; nor is it a habit to which the young are given. But criticism is only the burying beetle that gets rid of what is dead, and, since the world lives by creative and constructive forces, and not by negation and destruction, it is better to grow up in the company of prophets than of critics. #Quote by Richard Livingstone
Critics quotes by Mark Z. Danielewski
#21. I've come to believe errors, especially written errors, are often the only markers left by a solitary life: to sacrifice them is to lose the angles of personality, the riddle of a soul. In this case a very old soul. A very old riddle. #Quote by Mark Z. Danielewski
Critics quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#22. Don't let fear of failure discourage you. Don't let the voice of critics paralyze you - whether that voice comes from the outside or the inside. #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Critics quotes by Bryan Burrough
#23. Everyone in the room knew about leveraged buyouts, often called LBOs. In an LBO, a small group of senior executives, usually working with a Wall Street partner, proposes to buy its company from public shareholders, using massive amounts of borrowed money. Critics of this procedure called it stealing the company from its owners and fretted that the growing mountain of corporate debt was hindering America's ability to compete abroad. Everyone knew LBOs meant deep cuts in research and every other imaginable budget, all sacrificed to pay off debt. Proponents insisted that companies forced to meet steep debt payments grew lean and mean. On one thing they all agreed: The executives who launched LBOs got filthy rich. #Quote by Bryan Burrough
Critics quotes by Isabella Rossellini
#24. David Lynch came out of it a genius, and I came out of it a fat girl. I'm sorry that the only comment I get about the part is the way I look. Commenting on the critics' response to her performance in Blue Velvet #Quote by Isabella Rossellini
Critics quotes by Dino De Laurentiis
#25. The audience wants to be attracted not by the critics, but by a great story. You must deliver to the audience emotion - and when I say emotion, I mean suspense, drama, love. #Quote by Dino De Laurentiis
Critics quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#26. Loyalty in a critic is corruption. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Critics quotes by Alex Cox
#27. In Goodfellas they have this one scene where the camera goes down some steps and walks through a kitchen into a restaurant and the critics were all over this as evidence of the genius of Scorsese and Scorsese is a genius. #Quote by Alex Cox
Critics quotes by Juana Ines De La Cruz
#28. Critics: In your sight
no woman can win:
keep you out, and she's too tight;
she's too loose if you get in. #Quote by Juana Ines De La Cruz
Critics quotes by Dean Wareham
#29. Rock is periodically pronounced dead by clear rock critics - killed by world music, or by hip-hop, or electronica, or the Backstreet Boys. But if you wait a year, it comes back to life. #Quote by Dean Wareham
Critics quotes by David Suzuki
#30. Despite the international scientific community's consensus on climate change, a small number of critics continue to deny that climate change exists or that humans are causing it. Widely known as climate change "skeptics" or "deniers," these individuals are generally not climate scientists and do not debate the science with the climate scientists ... #Quote by David Suzuki
Critics quotes by Alfred Tennyson
#31. A louse in the locks of literature. #Quote by Alfred Tennyson
Critics quotes by Robert Morley
#32. If the critics were always right we should be in deep trouble. #Quote by Robert Morley
Critics quotes by Tim Cook
#33. No matter what you do next, the world needs your energy, your passion, your impatience for progress. Don't shrink from risk. And tune out those critics and cynics. History rarely yields to one person, but think, and never forget, what happens when it does. That can be you. That should be you. That must be you. #Quote by Tim Cook
Critics quotes by T. S. Eliot
#34. James's critical genius comes out most tellingly in his mastery over, his baffling escape from, Ideas; a mastery and an escape which are perhaps the last test of a superior intelligence. He had a mind so fine that no idea could violate it. [ ... ] In England, ideas run wild and pasture on the emotions; instead of thinking with our feelings (a very different thing) we corrupt our feelings with ideas; we produce the public, the political, the emotional idea, evading sensation and thought. [ ... ] James in his novels is like the best French critics in maintaining a point of view, a view-point untouched by the parasite idea. He is the most intelligent man of his generation.
(Little Review, 1918) #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Critics quotes by Paul C. Nagel
#35. Rather than pound or a national mind that he believed had been closed by his critics, John Quincy Adams decided to seek a place in the is the esteem of future generations. #Quote by Paul C. Nagel
Critics quotes by Henry James
#36. When you lay down a proposition which is forthwith controverted, it is of course optional with you to take up the cudgels in its defence. If you are deeply convinced of its truth, you will perhaps be content to leave it to take care of itself; or, at all events, you will not go out of your way to push its fortunes; for you will reflect that in the long run an opinion often borrows credit from the forbearance of its patrons. In the long run, we say; it will meanwhile cost you an occasional pang to see your cherished theory turned into a football by the critics. A football is not, as such, a very respectable object, and the more numerous the players, the more ridiculous it becomes. Unless, therefore, you are very confident of your ability to rescue it from the chaos of kicks, you will best consult its interests by not mingling in the game. #Quote by Henry James
Critics quotes by Leonard Bernstein
#37. I've been all over the world and I've never seen a statue of a critic. #Quote by Leonard Bernstein
Critics quotes by Marco Rubio
#38. Of course there are critics who believe that no matter what we do, the Florida dream is over. They claim that we must accept the idea that inevitably our future is one of high taxes and big government. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Critics quotes by Ricardo Semler
#39. It is not socialist, as some of our critics contend. It isn't purely capitalist, either. It is a new way. A third way. A more humane, trusting, productive, exhilarating, and, in every sense, rewarding way. #Quote by Ricardo Semler
Critics quotes by Pablo Picasso
#40. When art critics get together they talk about Form and Structure and Meaning. When artists get together they talk about where you can buy cheap turpentine. #Quote by Pablo Picasso
Critics quotes by Seth Godin
#41. No one has ever built a statue to a critic, it's true. On the other hand, it's only the people with statues that get pooped on by birds flying by. #Quote by Seth Godin
Critics quotes by Jewel Spears Brooker
#42. The period of general neglect of Eliot's poetry was one in which a revolution was occurring in the theory of interpretation. Existentialist, phenomenologist, structuralist, psychoanalytic, feminist, and poststructuralist theories appeared and stimulated dazzling conversations about how texts mean. Bloom, Miller, Poulet, Gadamer, Foucault, Lacan, Kristeva, and Derrida are just a few of the critics who have contributed to these conversations. These studies have enormous value for critics interested in Eliot. In the first place, they have popularized insights about language which are central in Eliot poetry from "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" to Four Quartets. Anyone who doubts this should read Derrida "Structure, Sign, and Play in the Discourse of the Human Sciences" and follow up with a reading of part 5 of each of Four Quartets. In the second place, the studies in theory have created an audience that will be able to appreciate Eliot's dissertation and early philosophical work, an audience unthinkable a generation ago. #Quote by Jewel Spears Brooker
Critics quotes by Nomar Garciaparra
#43. All players are their own worst critics. We are harder on ourselves than anyone else is. #Quote by Nomar Garciaparra
Critics quotes by Jeff Jarrett
#44. To a critic, no explanation will do. To a fan, no explanation is needed. #Quote by Jeff Jarrett
Critics quotes by Orson Welles
#45. It would be so much better if the critics would come, not on first nights, but on last nights, when they could exercise their undoubted flair for funeral orations. #Quote by Orson Welles
Critics quotes by Jonathan Wells
#46. The many meanings of 'evolution' are frequently exploited by Darwinists to distract their critics. Eugenie Scott recommends: 'Define evolution as an issue of the history of the planet: as the way we try to understand change through time. The present is different from the past. Evolution happened, there is no debate within science as to whether it happened, and so on ... I have used this approach at the college level.'
Of course, no college student - indeed, no grade-school dropout - doubts that 'the present is different from the past.' Once Scott gets them nodding in agreement, she gradually introduces them to 'The Big Idea' that all species - including monkeys and humans - are related through descent from a common ancestor ... This tactic is called 'equivocation' - changing the meaning of a term in the middle of an argument. #Quote by Jonathan Wells
Critics quotes by Chris Rock
#47. You don't need a critic to tell you people aren't laughing. #Quote by Chris Rock
Critics quotes by Matthew Spektor
#48. There is no greater swindle than so-called realism in all its forms, and no bigger sucker than someone who mistakes pessimism for accuracy. #Quote by Matthew Spektor
Critics quotes by John Berger
#49. 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. #Quote by John Berger
Critics quotes by Buzz Osborne
#50. It's not the journalists; it's the critics that I can't understand. I've never understood what kind of a person would want to criticize someone else's work. #Quote by Buzz Osborne
Critics quotes by Yvonne Pierre
#51. Don't base your decision on the opinions of those who don't want to see you grow. #Quote by Yvonne Pierre
Critics quotes by Joan Robinson
#52. Progress is slow partly from mere intellectual inertia. In a subject where there is no agreed procedure for knocking out errors, doctrines have a long life. A professor teaches what he was taught, and his pupils, with a proper respect and reverence for teachers, set up a resistance against his critics for no other reason than that it was he whose pupils they were. #Quote by Joan Robinson
Critics quotes by David Letterman
#53. Critics of the Wall Street protesters claim that they have old ideas, nothing new, and they're never going to work. Wait a minute., that sounds like this show. #Quote by David Letterman
Critics quotes by Denis Waitley
#54. Be a role model not a critic. Don't tell your children, your peers, or your subordinates what to do - show them. And when the lesson is over, keep showing them by demonstrating that your actions are part of your character, not part of their curriculum. #Quote by Denis Waitley
Critics quotes by Vladimir Odoevsky
#55. At that shameful stage in the development of our criticism, literary abuse would overstep all limits of decorum; literature itself was a totally extraneous matter in critical articles: they were pure invective, a vulgar battle of vulgar jokes, double-entendres, the most vicious calumnies and offensive constructions. It goes without saying, that in this inglorious battle, the only winners were those who had nothing to lose as far as their good name was concerned. My friends and I were totally deluded. We imagined ourselves engaged in the subtle philosophical disputes of the portico or the academy, or at least the drawing room. In actual fact we were slumming it. #Quote by Vladimir Odoevsky
Critics quotes by Martijn Benders
#56. I have always said that whomever has limited preferences cannot be a critic, for the same reason some guy who only likes blondes cant be a jury in a beauty contest, for his idea of beauty is predefined and not based on dynamic reality. Thus, what people call 'preferences' are in fact exactly what makes them blind. For this reason being a writer also means you essentially cannot have the same markup as ordinary people, because getting rid of the precomposed is a too essential part of the whole dynamics of writing. #Quote by Martijn Benders
Critics quotes by John Baldacci
#57. Just as the Red Sox proved the critics wrong, Maine can compete and can win. #Quote by John Baldacci
Critics quotes by Harold Bloom
#58. The second, and I think this is the much more overt and I think it is the main cause, I have been increasingly demonstrating or trying to demonstrate that every possible stance a critic, a scholar, a teacher can take towards a poem is itself inevitably and necessarily poetic. #Quote by Harold Bloom
Critics quotes by Peter Jackson
#59. Critics in particular treat CGI as a virus that's infecting film. #Quote by Peter Jackson
Critics quotes by Marianne Moore
#60. We are suffering from too much sarcasm. #Quote by Marianne Moore
Critics quotes by Jean M. Auel
#61. I don't write for publishers, certainly not for critics, and not for readers, But I am delighted that so many people have found my books enjoyable and want to continue to read them. #Quote by Jean M. Auel
Critics quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#62. Most critics don't realize that a novel like One Hundred Years of Solitude is a bit of a joke, full of signals to close friends; and so, with some pre-ordained right to pontificate they take on the responsibility of decoding the book and risk making terrible fools of themselves. #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Critics quotes by Kenneth Fisher
#63. Despite its many critics, hydraulic fracturing will change the nature of energy production. #Quote by Kenneth Fisher
Critics quotes by Amaury Nolasco
#64. When you dare me to do something, I will say, 'Watch me'. That is what I say to critics. 'Watch me'. #Quote by Amaury Nolasco
Critics quotes by Jonah Goldberg
#65. If you write for the critics, only the critics will read you. #Quote by Jonah Goldberg
Critics quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#66. Love your haters, but don't waste time trying to appease them. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Critics quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#67. Are you ready to stop colluding with a culture that makes so many of us feel physically inadequate? Say goodbye to your inner critic, and take this pledge to be kinder to yourself and others. #Quote by Oprah Winfrey
Critics quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#68. He who frowns when they say that he sucks shouldn't smile when they say that he rocks. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Critics quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#69. Cortissoz was art critic of the New York Herald Tribune. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Critics quotes by Stephen L. Carter
#70. The very aspect of religions that many of their critics most fear - that the religiously devout, in the name of their faith, take positions that differ from approved state policy - is one of their strengths. #Quote by Stephen L. Carter
Critics quotes by Kathleen A. Kendall-Tackett
#71. Isolation can be a particular problem for mothers at home with small children. Mothers become isolated from each other because we fear judgement. Other mothers can be our harshest critics. And we anticipate that criticism and don't ask each other for help. #Quote by Kathleen A. Kendall-Tackett
Critics quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#72. Where the world sees an ugly duckling, the universe sees a beautiful swan. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Critics quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#73. Different critics go to different lengths to disagree with that sentiment, but ultimately, they're the person experiencing this art, and whatever judgment or taste they use is internal, and says more about them than about the record they're writing about. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Critics quotes by Pauline Kael
#74. If you think it so easy to be a critic, so difficult to be a poet or a painter or film experimenter, may I suggest you try both? You may discover why there are so few critics, so many poets. #Quote by Pauline Kael
Critics quotes by Thomas Kinkade
#75. I've had so much positive reaction and emotional fulfillment from the creation of my art and sharing it with everyday people that I never paid too much attention to the opinion of critics. #Quote by Thomas Kinkade
Critics quotes by Wim Wenders
#76. Many of the critics today get airline tickets, hotel accommodation, bags, beautiful photographs, gifts and other expenses paid by the distributors, and then are supposed to write serious articles about the movie. #Quote by Wim Wenders
Critics quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#77. I have very carefully studied Islam and the life of its Prophet (PBUH). I have done so both as a student of history and as a critic. And I have come to conclusion that Muhammad (PBUH) was indeed a great man and a deliverer and benefactor of mankind which was till then writhing under the most agonising Pain. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Critics quotes by Wynton Marsalis
#78. Let the critics criticize and let the doers do. #Quote by Wynton Marsalis
Critics quotes by John Legend
#79. Critics like to describe and categorize things, and categories often have a way of limiting people. #Quote by John Legend
Critics quotes by Alex Ferguson
#80. Critics have always questioned whether players like Pele from the 50s could play today. Lionel Messi could play in the 1950s and the present day, as could Di Stefano, Pele, Maradona, Cruyff because they are all great players. Lionel Messi without question fits into that category. #Quote by Alex Ferguson
Critics quotes by Oscar Wilde
#81. The artist is the creator of beautiful things. To reveal art and conceal the artist is art's aim. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Critics quotes by Victoria Glendinning
#82. The facts of life are to the biographer what the text of a novel is to the critic. #Quote by Victoria Glendinning
Critics quotes by Rani Mukerji
#83. I'm happy that people have loved my film and my work. I have always let my work do the talking, and I guess I have proved to my critics that I'm not over. #Quote by Rani Mukerji
Critics quotes by Richard D. Zanuck
#84. When you're doing a film, it's your film and it's, you know, your blood and - is in it along with everybody else's, and it's the greatest picture ever made when you're shooting it. It's only after the critics and then the public say you were wrong that you realize that you were wrong. #Quote by Richard D. Zanuck
Critics quotes by Wim Wenders
#85. It's very hard to find critics or a magazine today that will publish material that is genuinely independent and written without any concern about being cut off some distributor's list or not be invited or flown into screenings. #Quote by Wim Wenders
Critics quotes by Tim Parks
#86. a novelist's work is often a strategy (I don't mean the author need be aware of this) for dealing with some personal dilemma. Not just that the dilemma is "worked out" in the narrative, as critics often tell us, but that the acts of writing and publishing and positioning oneself in the world of literature are all part of an attempt to find a solution, however provisional, to some deep personal unease. #Quote by Tim Parks
Critics quotes by Washington Irving
#87. Critics are a kind of freebooters in the republic of letters
who, like deer, goats and divers other graminivorous animals, gain subsistence by gorging upon buds and leaves of the young shrubs of the forest, thereby robbing them of their verdure, and retarding their progress to maturity. #Quote by Washington Irving
Critics quotes by Dennis Prager
#88. Kidnapping people and selling them into slavery, as was done to Africans and others throughout history, is forbidden by the Eighth Commandment. Critics of the Bible who argue the Bible allowed such slavery, and defenders of such slavery who used the Bible, were both wrong. And lest there be any confusion about this issue, the very next chapter of the Torah specifies a person who kidnaps another - particularly when done with the intention of selling the victim into slavery - 'shall be put to death' (Exodus 21:16). #Quote by Dennis Prager
Critics quotes by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
#89. Though critics may bow to art, and I am its own true lover,
It is not art, but heart, which wins the wide world over.

Though smooth be the heartless prayer, no ear in Heaven will mind it,
And the finest phrase falls dead if there is no feeling behind it.

Though perfect the player's touch, little, if any, he sways us,
Unless we feel his heart throb through the music he plays us.

Though the poet may spend his life in skilfully rounding a measure,
Unless he writes from a full, warm heart he gives us little pleasure.

So it is not the speech which tells, but the impulse which goes with the saying;
And it is not the words of the prayer, but the yearning back of the praying.

It is not the artist's skill which into our soul comes stealing
With a joy that is almost pain, but it is the player's feeling.

And it is not the poet's song, though sweeter than sweet bells chiming,
Which thrills us through and through, but the heart which beats under the rhyming.

And therefore I say again, though I am art's own true lover,
That it is not art, but heart, which wins the wide world over. #Quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Critics quotes by J.G. Holland
#90. Why will you be always sallying out to break lances with other people's wind-mills, when your own is not capable of grinding corn for the horse you ride? #Quote by J.G. Holland
Critics quotes by Jascha Heifetz
#91. Criticism does not disturb me, for I am my own severest critic. Always in my playing I strive to surpass myself, and it is this constant struggle that makes music fascinating to me. #Quote by Jascha Heifetz
Critics quotes by Bernice Rubens
#92. [On being a judge for the 1986 Booker Prize:] I got to the point where I couldn't read a laundry list without considering it for the Booker Prize. #Quote by Bernice Rubens
Critics quotes by Truman Capote
#93. Never demean yourself by talking back to a critic, never. Write those letters to the editor in your head, but don't put them on paper. #Quote by Truman Capote
Critics quotes by Sherwood Anderson
#94. Those of my critics who declare I have no feeling for form will be filled with delight over the meandering formlessness of these notes. #Quote by Sherwood Anderson
Critics quotes by Brian Sewell
#95. Art criticism everywhere is now at a low ebb, intellectually corrupt, swamped in meaningless jargon, distorted by political correctitudes, anxiously addressed only to other critics and their ilk. #Quote by Brian Sewell
Critics quotes by David Foster Wallace
#96. That distinctive singular stamp of himself is one of the main reasons readers come to love an author. The way you can just tell, often within a couple paragraphs, that something is by Dickens, or Chekhov, or Woolf, or Salinger, or Coetzee, or Ozick. The quality's almost impossible to describe or account for straight out - it mostly presents as a vibe, a kind of perfume of sensibility - and critics' attempts to reduce it to questions of "style" are almost universally lame. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Critics quotes by E.D. Baker
#97. Without my protectionm your journey is doomed before you begin.'
Great! I thought. Even the snake is a critic! #Quote by E.D. Baker
Critics quotes by Jane Mayer
#98. As scientists linked smoking to cancer, the tobacco industry was under particularly pointed attack, which might have heightened Powell's alarmism. As a director at Philip Morris from 1964 until he joined the Supreme Court, Powell was an unabashed defender of tobacco, signing off on a series of annual reports lashing out at critics. The company's 1967 annual report, for instance, declared, "We deplore the lack of objectivity in so important a controversy ... Unfortunately the positive benefits of smoking which are so widely acknowledged are largely ignored by many reports linking cigarettes and health, and little attention is paid to the scientific reports which are favorable to smoking." Powell took umbrage at the refusal by the Federal Communications Commission to grant the tobacco companies "equal time" to respond to their critics on television and argued that the companies' First Amendment rights were being infringed. #Quote by Jane Mayer
Critics quotes by Duke Ellington
#99. Critics have their purposes, and they're supposed to do what they do, but sometimes they get a little carried away with what they think someone should have done, rather than concerning themselves with what they did. #Quote by Duke Ellington
Critics quotes by Mel Brooks
#100. Immortality is a by-product of good work. #Quote by Mel Brooks
Critics quotes by Walter J. Phillips
#101. Pseudo-critics prefer to direct their remarks to the artist - Heaven forgive them - but one due rather to a common impression that such an attitude is the correct one, that all paintings should be figuratively mutilated, and that all artists are fair game, or really grateful perhaps for a few tips. #Quote by Walter J. Phillips
Critics quotes by Adam McKay
#102. If you make action movies, the critics will savage you, and then your movies are outdated the following week with the new wave of special effects. #Quote by Adam McKay
Critics quotes by Katy Perry
#103. Honey, I am the chief of my train. If critics want to hop on board, fantastic. There's plenty of room. The KP train is fun. #Quote by Katy Perry
Critics quotes by Dizzy Gillespie
#104. Many critics always saw and heard that my style comes from Roy Eldridge, which is true. But for many things, not only how to play the trumpet but the way to choose the notes, how to play them and how to phrase all of them, I took that from Sweets [Edison]. He really brought something new to the trumpet. #Quote by Dizzy Gillespie
Critics quotes by Andy Hargreaves
#105. Implementation of technological change must involve critics as well as advocates. #Quote by Andy Hargreaves
Critics quotes by Katherine Anne Porter
#106. In the arts, you simply cannot secure your bread and your freedom of action too. You cannot be a hostile critic of society and expect society to feed you regularly. #Quote by Katherine Anne Porter
Critics quotes by George Steiner
#107. My writing of fiction comes under a very general heading of those teachers, critics, scholars who like to try their own hand once or twice in their lives. #Quote by George Steiner
Critics quotes by Richard Pryor
#108. I wanna grow up and be a critic. #Quote by Richard Pryor
Critics quotes by Nicolas Roeg
#109. Critics reach that age when it is as valuable and daring to hold a negative opinion as it is for a positive. We learn and understand from both. #Quote by Nicolas Roeg
Critics quotes by Paul Stanley
#110. Music critics are, for the most part, bitter people who are intent at dragging people down for being successful at what they want to do, which is probably music. The oddity of being a critic is: You don't get a diploma, you just decide you're a critic. If someone listens to your opinion rather than their own, it's their mistake. Any critic's top 10, any year, it's something controversial or something that will make them look hipper-than-thou. The whole critic game, we've never played. #Quote by Paul Stanley
Critics quotes by Dame Edna Everage
#111. There is, perhaps, no more dangerous man in the world than the man with the sensibilities of an artist but without creative talent. With luck such men make wonderful theatrical impresarios and interior decorators, or else they become mass murderers or critics. #Quote by Dame Edna Everage
Critics quotes by Chelsea Handler
#112. Good Luck Chuck, a comedy starring Dane Cook and Jessica Alba, opened today, and critics are saying it has all the belly laughs you've come to expect from Jessica Alba. #Quote by Chelsea Handler

Critics quotes by Frederic Chopin
#114. Time is the best of critics; and patience the best of teachers. #Quote by Frederic Chopin
Critics quotes by H. Wayne House
#115. Critics often point to historical issues such as slavery, upon which many Christians did act inconsistently, in an effort to invalidate Christian participation in contemporary social issues. #Quote by H. Wayne House
Critics quotes by Ernst Gombrich
#116. During the days of my youth, critics and art-lovers resorted freely to this term of abuse. Even some of the most renowned Old Masters were also pilloried as having manufactured insipid and sugary paintings that were offensive to good taste. #Quote by Ernst Gombrich
Critics quotes by Jane Goldman
#117. The 1980s: feminism, postmodernism, sexual/textual politics

While it might be tempting to generalise that Woolf 's writing was being discussed almost in two separate camps during the 1980s, formalists on the one hand, and feminists on the other, this would be to simplify things too far.
Many critics were attempting to make sense of and connect her feminist politics with her modernist practices. Such investigations coincided with the explosion of theory in literary studies, and once again the work of Virginia
Woolf was central to the framing of many of the major theoretical developments in literary critical engagements with feminism, postmodernism, deconstruction and psychoanalysis. In the context of the rise of 'high theory'
and the questioning of old-school Marxist, materialist, humanist and historicist literary theories, Woolf studies wrestled with the locating of her radical feminist politics in the avant-garde qualities of the text itself, and its endlessly transgressive play of signifiers, with the Woolfian inscription of radically deconstructed models of the self and of sexuality and jouissance. #Quote by Jane Goldman
Critics quotes by Henry Miller
#118. Honest criticism means nothing: what one wants is unrestrained passion, fire for fire. #Quote by Henry Miller
Critics quotes by Idina Menzel
#119. I think that if you're doing a new musical, you want to have the opportunity to experiment and try things without the whole city of critics looking over your shoulder. #Quote by Idina Menzel
Critics quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#120. Did you like my novel?" she couldn't resist asking.
"Yes, I did. At first I thought it would be typical silver-fork fare. But I liked the way your well-bred characters began to unravel. I liked the portrayal of decent people moved to deception, violence, betrayal... you don't seem to shrink from anything in your writing."
"Critics say my work is lacking in decency."
"That's because your underlying theme- that ordinary people are capable of extraordinary things in their private lives- makes them uncomfortable. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Critics quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#121. Youth need less critics and more models. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Critics quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#122. I became a so-called science fiction writer when someone decreed that I was a science fiction writer. I did not want to be classified as one, so I wondered in what way I'd offended that I would not get credit for being a serious writer. I decided that it was because I wrote about technology, and most fine American writers know nothing about technology. I got classified as a science fiction writer simply because I wrote about Schenectady, New York. My first book, Player Piano, was about Schenectady. There are huge factories in Schenectady and nothing else. I and my associates were engineers, physicists, chemists, and mathematicians. And when I wrote about the General Electric Company and Schenectady, it seemed a fantasy of the future to critics who had never seen the place. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Critics quotes by Sady Doyle
#123. Not only is the actual word "hysteria" gendered - it once referred to an exclusively female disease, a mental illness thought to be caused by a malfunctioning uterus - there is a very long history of critics using accusations or innuendo about women's mental health or emotional stability in order to shut down their political voices. #Quote by Sady Doyle
Critics quotes by Will Rogers
#124. A lot of guys have had a lot of fun joking about Henry Ford because he admitted one time that he didn't know history. He don't know it, but history will know him. He has made more history than his critics ever read. #Quote by Will Rogers
Critics quotes by Alan Garner
#125. I live, at all times, for imaginative fiction; for ambivalence, not instruction. When language serves dogma, then literature is lost. I live also, and only, for excellence. My care is not for the cult of egalitarian mediocrity that is sweeping the world today, wherein even the critics are no longer qualified to differentiate, but for literature, which you may notice I have not defined. I would say that, because of its essential ambivalence, 'literature' is: words that provoke a response; that invite the reader or listener to partake of the creative act. There can be no one meaning for a text. Even that of the writer is a but an option.

"Literature exists at every level of experience. It is inclusive, not exclusive. It embraces; it does not reduce, however simply it is expressed. The purpose of the storyteller is to relate the truth in a manner that is simple: to integrate without reduction; for it is rarely possible to declare the truth as it is, because the universe presents itself as a Mystery. We have to find parables; we have to tell stories to unriddle the world.

"It is a paradox: yet one so important I must restate it. The job of a storyteller is to speak the truth; but what we feel most deeply cannot be spoken in words. At this level only images connect. And so story becomes symbol; and symbol is myth."

"It is one of the main errors of historical and rational analysis to suppose that the 'original form' of myth can be separated from its #Quote by Alan Garner
Critics quotes by Jon Favreau
#126. Especially in the food business, critics take very seriously how much power they have. They can shut a restaurant down. #Quote by Jon Favreau
Critics quotes by Pauline Kael
#127. We read critics for the perceptions, for what they tell us that we didn't fully grasp when we saw the work. The judgments we can usually make for ourselves. #Quote by Pauline Kael
Critics quotes by Lee Kuan Yew
#128. To straddle the middle ground and win elections, we have to be in charge of the political agenda. This can only be done by not being beaten in the argument with our critics. They complain that I come down too hard on their arguments. But wrong ideas have to be challenged before they influence public opinion and make for problems. Those who try to be clever at the expense of the government should not complain if my replies are as sharp as their criticisms. #Quote by Lee Kuan Yew
Critics quotes by Ray Bradbury
#129. The critics are generally wrong, or they're fifteen, twenty years late. It's a great shame. They miss out on a lot. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Critics quotes by Roxane Gay
#130. There is an odd assumption that compassion and care are finite or that critics can be everything to everyone - commenting on everything simply because they can. That's not what cultural criticism is. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Critics quotes by Nicolas Cage
#131. You can't make your choices based on what critics think. You have to make your choices based on what's honest for you. #Quote by Nicolas Cage
Critics quotes by John Gardner
#132. Though we run across exceptions, philosophical novels where explanation holds interest, the temptation to explain is one that should almost always be resisted. A good writer can get anything at all across through action and dialogue, and if he can think of no powerful reason to do otherwise, he should probably leave explanation to his reviewers and critics. The writer should especially avoid comment on what his characters are feeling, or at very least should be sure he understands the common objection summed up in the old saw Show, don't tell. #Quote by John Gardner
Critics quotes by Desiderius Erasmus
#133. Nothing is as peevish and pedantic as men's judgments of one another. #Quote by Desiderius Erasmus
Critics quotes by Timothy Keller
#134. Churches that are filled with self-righteous, exclusive, insecure, angry, moralistic people are extremely unattractive. Their public pronouncements are often highly judgmental, while internally such churches experience many bitter conflicts, splits, and divisions. When one of their leaders has a moral lapse, the churches either rationalize it and denounce the leader's critics, or else they scapegoat him. Millions of people raised in or near these kinds of churches reject Christianity at an early age or in college largely because of their experience. For the rest of their lives, then, they are inoculated against Christianity. If you are a person who has been disillusioned by such churches, anytime anyone recommends Christianity to you, you assume they are calling you to adopt "religion." Pharisees and their unattractive lives leave many people confused about the real nature of Christianity. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Critics quotes by Ang Lee
#135. The thing we call critics are not really reviewers, they are not really critics. They don't have the discipline to write what we would term as critique - it's really just reviewers. They have a common man kind of taste. If you watch them overall, they are not different from the box-office. That's my view. #Quote by Ang Lee
Critics quotes by Armond White
#136. If critics and fanboys weren't suckers for simplistic nihilism and high-pressure marketing, Afterlife would be universally acclaimed as a visionary feat, superior to Inception and Avatar on every level. #Quote by Armond White
Critics quotes by Chris Pine
#137. 'Horrible Bosses' is just blatant, outright fun. I've read some of what the critics have said, and it's incredible how mean critics can be about comedies ... It's so ridiculous. #Quote by Chris Pine
Critics quotes by Parker Palmer
#138. Proposing inner-life solutions to our political and economic catastrophes is something done, say the critics, only by people who've spent more time in la-la land than in the 'real world.' #Quote by Parker Palmer
Critics quotes by Jennifer Saunders
#139. I'm my own worst critic. I could tell the critics a thing or two about my shows. #Quote by Jennifer Saunders
Critics quotes by Nancy Gibbs; Michael Duffy
#140. The elder Bush explained later that "watching your son taking a pounding from his critics was much, much harder" than being president. "Barbara quit reading the papers and watching the new, but I couldn't do that #Quote by Nancy Gibbs; Michael Duffy
Critics quotes by Jim Boeheim
#141. And when you've been around as long as I have, you do have one advantage: Most of your critics have either given up or died off. #Quote by Jim Boeheim
Critics quotes by Story Musgrave
#142. I work for perfection, for perfection's sake. I don't care what the external reasons are. And it's much more like a ballerina on opening night. You've done what you've got to do. When you go out, the purpose is to turn a perfect turn. You are not thinking about the future of the company, you are not thinking about your future, you're not thinking about the critics, it is you and the perfect turn. #Quote by Story Musgrave
Critics quotes by Henry Petroski
#143. No design, no matter how common or seemingly insignificant, is without its adamant critics as well as its ardent admirers. #Quote by Henry Petroski
Critics quotes by Jimmy Tudeski
#144. Hence, why Tudeski is only my pen name (stage name – made up name) and I don't use my real surname when I write anything any longer. Clever of me, right? No, not really, my real surname got fucked over by critics long before I actually found out an author could use a pretend name – I just believe it's Tudeski's turn to take some of this shit now! #Quote by Jimmy Tudeski
Critics quotes by Louise Bogan
#145. All art, in spite of the struggles of some critics to prove otherwise, is based on emotion and projects emotion. #Quote by Louise Bogan
Critics quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#146. Critics kind never mind! Critics flatter no matter! Critics blame all the same! Do your best damn the rest! #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Critics quotes by Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
#147. A critic is a reader who ruminates. Thus, he should have more than one stomach. #Quote by Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
Critics quotes by J.R. Moehringer
#148. Write every day; never give up; it's supposed to be difficult; try to find some pleasure and reward in the act of writing, because you can't look for praise from editors, readers, or critics. In other words, tips that are much easier to give than to take. #Quote by J.R. Moehringer
Critics quotes by Wesley Morris
#149. I love to go to the movies with people, but a lot of the time it's me in a room with a bunch of other movie critics, which is fine. #Quote by Wesley Morris
Critics quotes by Richard Masur
#150. I was doing a play in New York, which we had done in New Haven, Connecticut. It was an American premiere of a play called The Changing Room written by a wonderful man named David Story. It was about a rugby team in the North of England. It got just screaming rave reviews. At that time, virtually every major critic went up to the Long Wharf Theater to see a new play like that. #Quote by Richard Masur
Critics quotes by Walter Darby Bannard
#151. A critic without a good eye is a eunuch in a harem. #Quote by Walter Darby Bannard
Critics quotes by Duke Ellington

Critics quotes by Richard McCabe
#153. In my whole career, in fact, I can remember only two first nights when a show was at its peak on the first night. And I just wish we could devise a system where critics came not on a single evening but were given a choice of performances to attend. #Quote by Richard McCabe
Critics quotes by Vivien Leigh
#154. Some critics saw fit to say that I was a great actress. I thought that was a foolish, wicket thing to say because it put such an onus and such a responsibility onto me, which I simply wasn't able to carry. #Quote by Vivien Leigh
Critics quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#155. It's not the critic who counts. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt

Critics quotes by Jon Ronson
#159. Judge Ted Poe's critics - like the civil rights group the ACLU - argued to him the dangers of these ostentatious punishments, especially those that were carried out in public. They said it was no coincidence that public shaming had enjoyed such a renaissance in Mao's China and Hitler's Germany and the Ku Klux Klan's America - it destroys souls, brutalizing everyone, the onlookers included, dehumanizing them as much as the person being shamed. #Quote by Jon Ronson

Critics quotes by Anatole Broyard

#164. There are many critics whose work I greatly admire. Even though I diverge from T.J. Reed in several important ways, I've learned greatly from his writings on Mann. #Quote by Philip Kitcher
Critics quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#165. All the critics who could not make their reputations by discovering you are hoping to make them by predicting hopefully your approaching impotence, failure and general drying up of natural juices. Not a one will wish you luck or hope that you will keep on writing unless you have political affiliations in which case these will rally around and speak of you and Homer, Balzac, Zola and Link Steffens. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Critics quotes by William F. Albright
#166. We can already say emphatically that there is no longer any solid basis for dating any book of the New Testament after about A.D. 80, two full generations before the date between 130 and 150 given by the more radical New Testament critics of today. #Quote by William F. Albright
Critics quotes by Oscar Wilde
#167. The highest as the lowest form of criticism is a mode of autobiography. Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. #Quote by Oscar Wilde

Critics quotes by Max Hawthorne
#170. When it comes to overcoming writing hurdles, getting sick is like suffering a review from a critic with an axe to grind; you can't let it get you down! #Quote by Max Hawthorne
Critics quotes by April Gornik
#171. Most people respond to my paintings quite generously, but there have been cases where I think people - a few critics in particular - were actually moved by the work but were disturbed by the feelings it evoked, so they attacked it. Some people find the realm of my work quite uncomfortable. #Quote by April Gornik
Critics quotes by Park Chan-wook
#172. I became a film director, but I wasn't successful with my first couple of films, so I had to turn to becoming a film critic to make a living. #Quote by Park Chan-wook
Critics quotes by William Faulkner
#173. The artist doesn't have time to listen to the critics. The ones who want to be writers read the reviews, the ones who want to write don't have the time to read reviews. #Quote by William Faulkner
Critics quotes by James Russell Lowell
#174. It is quite too common a practice, both in readers and the more superficial class of critics, to judge a book by what it is not, a matter much easier to determine than what it is. #Quote by James Russell Lowell
Critics quotes by Ricky Martin
#175. What I like about Broadway is that you are still entertaining. You're standing in front of an audience every night and the critics are not friends at all - and that's good for me as an entertainer because I want to grow. It also gives me the structure of remaining in one city so I can get creative in different ways. #Quote by Ricky Martin
Critics quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#176. A baby is such a blank slate, like training the understudy fo a role you're planning to leave.You truly hope your replacement will do the play justice, but in secret, you want future critics to say you played the character better. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Critics quotes by Mabel Osgood Wright
#177. I have always noticed that when people consider others eccentric, it is because they are reveling in some form of enjoyment that their critics can neither compass nor share ... #Quote by Mabel Osgood Wright

#180. People who love jazz musicians love us when we play what we want to play and we're starving. But as soon as you commercialize your sound like Wes Montgomery did, the jazz fans and the critics are down on you! #Quote by George Benson
Critics quotes by Graham Nash
#181. If I read or listened to critics of our music, I'd have been discouraged a long time ago. #Quote by Graham Nash
Critics quotes by Robin Williams
#182. You have an internal critic, an internal drive that says, 'OK, you can do more.' Maybe that's what keeps you going. #Quote by Robin Williams
Critics quotes by Amelie Nothomb
#183. They went on to support their thesis by citing authors with esoteric names, whose works they themselves had not read, a fact which enabled them to speak about them penetratingly. #Quote by Amelie Nothomb

#184. It is a well-known fact that we see the faults in other's works more readily than we do in our own. #Quote by Pablo Picasso
Critics quotes by William Eggleston
#185. The immediate reviews were very hostile, but they didn't bother me-I had the attitude that I was right. The poor guys who were critics just didn't understand the works at all. I was sorry about that, but it didn't weigh on my mind a bit. #Quote by William Eggleston
Critics quotes by Gillian Duce
#186. Life is like a good book; There is bound to be typos and errors in it, but the only ones that noticed them are the critics and haters. #Quote by Gillian Duce
Critics quotes by Edward Dahlberg
#187. Recognize the cunning man not by the corpses he pays homage to but by the living writers he conspires against with the most shameful weapon, Silence, or the briefest review. #Quote by Edward Dahlberg
Critics quotes by Richard Dawkins
#188. Many of us have no grasp of quantum theory, or Einstein's theories of special and general relativity, but this does not in itself lead us to oppose these theories! Darwinism, unlike 'Einsteinism', seems to be regarded as fair game for critics with any degree of ignorance. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Critics quotes by Neil Postman
#189. If parents wish to preserve childhood for their own children, they must conceive of parenting as an act of rebellion against culture. #Quote by Neil Postman
Critics quotes by Ralph Ellison
#190. By and large, the critics and readers gave me an affirmed sense of my identity as a writer. You might know this within yourself, but to have it affirmed by others is of utmost importance. Writing is, after all, a form of communication. #Quote by Ralph Ellison
Critics quotes by M. Scott Peck
#191. Similarly, loving spouses must repeatedly confront each other if the marriage relationship is to serve the function of promoting the spiritual growth of the partners. No marriage can be judged truly successful unless husband and wife are each other's best critics. #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Critics quotes by Bert Sugar
#192. Ask a writer what he thinks about critics and the answer you get is similar to what you get when you ask a lamppost how he feels about dogs. #Quote by Bert Sugar
Critics quotes by Hermann Goring
#193. If people say that here and there someone has been taken away and maltreated, I can only reply: You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs. #Quote by Hermann Goring
Critics quotes by Wendell Berry
#194. Scared for health, afraid of death, bored, dissatisfied, vengeful, greedy, ignorant, and gullible - these are the qualities of the ideal consumer. Can we imagine a way of education that would turn passive consumers into active and informed critics, capable of using their own minds in their own defense? #Quote by Wendell Berry

Critics quotes by Peter Greenaway
#197. An American critic wrote that she would rather be forced to read the New York telephone directory three times than watch the film A Zed and Two Noughts, a third of which was a homage to Vermeer. Conceivably, if you are a list-enthusiast like me, the New York telephone directory might be fascinating, demographically, geographically, historically, typographically, cartographically; but I am sure no compliment was intended. #Quote by Peter Greenaway
Critics quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#198. Many critics are like woodpeckers, who, instead of enjoying the fruit and shadow of a tree, hop incessantly around the trunk, pecking holes in the bark to discover some little worm or other. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Critics quotes by Robertson Davies
#199. The critic is the duenna in the passionate affair between playwrights, actors and audiences - a figure dreaded, and occasionally comic, but never welcome, never loved. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Critics quotes by Robert Breault
#200. An art critic is someone who hopes to see his ideas translated to canvas without having to learn how to paint. #Quote by Robert Breault
