“I have never believed that the critic is the rival of the poet, but I do believe that criticism is a genre of literature or it does not exist.”
“Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.”
“Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you. Love me and I may be forced to love you.”
William Arthur Ward
“Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain but it takes character and self control to be understanding and forgiving.”
“Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do.”
“One should never criticize his own work except in a fresh and hopeful mood. The self-criticism of a tired mind is suicide.”
Charles Horton Cooley
“There is nothing so pitiful as a young cynic because he has gone from knowing nothing to believing nothing.”
