Handbagged Reviews quotes by Frederick Salomon Perls
#11. So if you find out how you prevent yourself from growing, from using your potential, you have away of increasing this, making life richer, making you more and more capable of mobilizing yourself. And our potential is based upon a very peculiar attitude: to live and review every fresh second #Quote by Frederick Salomon Perls
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Martijn Benders
#12. In 2009 i was nominated for the 'best dutch poetry debute' called 'the buddingh award'. It's supposed to be the most important debut price. However the event proved rather hallucinogenic. It started with my publisher expressing 'great surprise' that 'I still managed to get nominated'. The surprise was out of place, since my book simply got the best reviews of all books that year. I went to Poetry International and noticed only 2 of the 3 jury members where present, and the female one kept looking at me in sort of a guilty fashion. Then the award was granted to Misscha Andriessen, which was sort of weird since his book was not seen as universally the best by critics. 'Too lightweight' one review of an important critic read. Later on I read that jurymember Wim Brands one year prior to the price already made clear that 'he is a big fan of Mischa Andriessen'. I always assumed that they were friends somehow but this morning I solved the mystery: they are from the same little village, so it had nothing to do with poetry, just tribal culture at its best. Kind of a relief to know that. #Quote by Martijn Benders
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Hank Bordowitz
#13. In one of the most scathing of these reviews, New York Times critic Robert Palmer wrote: "He has mastered the art of making lyrics that are banal - and, when they are about women, frequently condescending - sound vaguely important. He has mastered the art of making the simplest drum accent sound as portentous as a peal of thunder and of introducing his side-men's solos with such dramatic flourishes that they almost sound like gifted, sensitive musicians rather than like the hacks they are. He has won a huge following by making emptiness seem substantial and Holiday Inn lounge schlock sound special. #Quote by Hank Bordowitz
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Victor LaValle
#14. There are times when I need to dig up the diagram for a type of satellite dish, for instance, but I just can't seem to phrase this need correctly. As a result, I'm inundated by advertising for satellite television and people's online customer reviews of such services when, in fact, I was only trying to figure out what a certain component is called. #Quote by Victor LaValle
Handbagged Reviews quotes by William Eggleston
#15. 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
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Louis Menand
#16. One of the functions of literary criticism, or reviewing, generally - and I, most of my reviews actually are not about literature - but one of the functions of that is basically the sort of Consumer Reports function of letting readers know whether this is something they want to read. #Quote by Louis Menand
Handbagged Reviews quotes by C.S. Lewis
#17. Many reviews are useless because, while purporting to condemn the book, they only reveal the reviewer's dislike of the kind to which it belongs. Let bad tragedies be censured by those who love tragedy, and bad detective stories by those who love the detective story. Then we shall learn their real faults. Otherwise we shall find epics blamed for not being novels, farces for not being high comedies, novels by James for lacking the swift action of Smollett. Who wants to hear a particular claret abused by a fanatical teetotaller, or a particular woman by a confirmed misogynist? #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Ulrich Muller
#18. The major thrust of the criticism leveled against Piaget's theory of infant development comes from the neonativist enterprise that argues that core knowledge and the abilities to represent and reason about physical reality (e.g., objects, causality, space) are innate (see Bremner, 2001; Cohen & Cashon, 2006, for reviews). #Quote by Ulrich Muller
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Tony Robbins
#19. If you can do one thing you thought was utterly impossible, it causes you to rethink your beliefs. Life is both subtler and more complex than some of us like to believe. So if you haven't done so already, review your beliefs and decide which ones you might change now and what you would change those beliefs to. #Quote by Tony Robbins
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Jodi Picoult
#20. I think the 'New York Times' reviews overall tend to overlook popular fiction, whether you're a man, woman, white, black, purple or pink. I think there are a lot of readers who would like to see reviews that belong in the range of commercial fiction. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Ron Brackin
#21. Reading book reviews is like asking other people to chew your food for you. #Quote by Ron Brackin
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#22. Sometimes I read reviews, and without exception I will read critical essays that are sent to me. The critical essays are interesting on their own terms. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Jason Guriel
#23. Reviews and essays that call attention to the critic are kind of like those movies that insist the viewer wear 3-D glasses. They promise depth, middle distance, a more fulsome experience, three-dimensionality: some additional layer of life. But the promise is redundant. Good criticism, like good films, will always give the impression of depth, of a presiding, trustworthy personality. Smart sentences, one after the other, are usually heartbeat enough. #Quote by Jason Guriel
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Faith Prince
#24. I don't like to read reviews. Even the good ones you start to analyze: 'Oh, did I do that? I have to make sure I do that again.' #Quote by Faith Prince
Handbagged Reviews quotes by J.A. Konrath
#25. I have turned off Google Alerts and don't Google my name or my pen names. I don't go on message boards. I don't read my book reviews. #Quote by J.A. Konrath
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Ash Gray
#26. I've always felt as if writing a novel is like giving birth. After the process is over, I am emotionally exhausted. But then the work's not done. I have to then raise the book to adulthood, through marketing and giveaways and pandhandling for reviews (its college education). And even while I'm nurturing it into something that is well adjusted and lovable, I've got other "kids" that need equal attention. It truly is work. My hat is off to real parents everywhere, who raise human children and novel ones at the same time. You are amazing. #Quote by Ash Gray
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Midwest Book Review August 2013
#27. An elegantly crafted novel, "The Reluctant First Lady" clearly documents author Venita Ellick as an exceptionally accomplished writer able to skillfully weave memorable characters into a riveting story line from beginning to end. As engaging as it is entertaining, "The Reluctant First Lady" is highly recommended for both personal reading lists and community library contemporary fiction collections. #Quote by Midwest Book Review August 2013
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Max Reger
#28. I am in the smallest room of the house. I have your review in front of me. Soon it will be behind me. #Quote by Max Reger
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Iris Murdoch
#29. A bad review is even less important than whether it is raining in Patagonia. #Quote by Iris Murdoch
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Barry Hannah
#30. I found out about reviews early on. They're mostly written by sad men on bad afternoons. That's probably why I'm less angry than some writers, who are so narcissistic they consider every line of every review, even a thoughtful one, as major treason. #Quote by Barry Hannah
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Friedrich Schiller
#31. In the case of a creative mind, it seems to me, the intellect has withdrawn its watchers from the gates, and the ideas rush in pell-mell and only then does it review and inspect the multitudes. #Quote by Friedrich Schiller
Handbagged Reviews quotes by John Scalzi
#32. 1. Everyone is entitled to their opinion about the things they read (or watch, or listen to, or taste, or whatever). They're also entitled to express them online.
2. Sometimes those opinions will be ones you don't like.
3. Sometimes those opinions won't be very nice.
4. The people expressing those may be (but are not always) assholes.
5. However, if your solution to this "problem" is to vex, annoy, threaten or harrass them, you are almost certainly a bigger asshole.
6. You may also be twelve.
7. You are not responsible for anyone else's actions or karma, but you are responsible for your own.
8. So leave them alone and go about your own life."
[Bad Reviews: I Can Handle Them, and So Should You (Blog post, July 17, 2012)] #Quote by John Scalzi
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Ken Burns
#33. I read cover to cover every jazz publication that I could and in the New York Times, every single day reading their jazz reviews even though I didn't put them in the films. I wanted to know what is going on. #Quote by Ken Burns
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Andrew Davies
#34. I know that a ridiculous number of classic serials have been commissioned, and that reviews show a reaction against them. The critics seem fed up. #Quote by Andrew Davies
Handbagged Reviews quotes by David Byrne
#35. There are a lot of people that don't scour websites regularly or read music reviews. They need whatever, the other kinds of stuff, whether it's an appearance on Lettterman or posters or ads. They need to kind of be hit more in the face and be told that there's something new out there. #Quote by David Byrne
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Lisa Scottoline
#36. I love my job, and I love books. I read anything, including cereal boxes. I care deeply about what people think of my books, and I memorize my reviews. I love to hear from my readers. #Quote by Lisa Scottoline
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Bethany Mota
#37. I don't want to lie to my subscribers, so I'm really honest about my reviews and stuff. #Quote by Bethany Mota
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Wes Anderson
#38. I've never had a movie that got great reviews. I've had movies that got different levels of good and bad reviews, but you can more or less count on plenty of bad reviews. #Quote by Wes Anderson
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Philip Roth
#39. I would be wonderful with a 100-year moratorium on literature talk, if you shut down all literature departments, close the book reviews, ban the critics. The readers should be alone with the books, and if anyone dared to say anything about them, they would be shot or imprisoned right on the spot. Yes, shot. A 100-year moratorium on insufferable literary talk. You should let people fight with the books on their own and rediscover what they are and what they are not. Anything other than this talk. #Quote by Philip Roth
Handbagged Reviews quotes by James Purefoy
#40. When I started acting, I used to read all the reviews. #Quote by James Purefoy
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Jim Shaw
#41. One thing I noticed over time is that if I got a bad review, usually the bad part of it was at the very end. I could tell that nobody read the whole review because they would just say, "It was great to see the review!" In a way, my brain shuts down at the end of an article. It doesn't really want to go to the end. #Quote by Jim Shaw
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Lisa McMann

Handbagged Reviews quotes by Edward Gordon
#43. Middle grade fiction shapes the lives of future adults. It is one of the most powerful forces in literature. Those who use their intellect to create works of fiction for the middle grade audience do so with an incredible privilege and responsibility as authors. For that reason, we are glad to post our reviews of their great efforts here on Goodreads. #Quote by Edward Gordon
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Irvin Kershner
#44. I have not given much credence to reviews of my films. Sometimes they're wrong, but it didn't matter to me. #Quote by Irvin Kershner
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Phil Cornwell
#45. Having not had a chance to review the tape and obviously not been in the tunnel, I will take the Wenger amendment on this one for now. #Quote by Phil Cornwell
Handbagged Reviews quotes by Barry Diller
#46. Urbanspoon is a nice, little application and it's perfect, of course, for CitySearch because of the reviews it contains and the ability for CitySearch to use that content. #Quote by Barry Diller
