Critics

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

It is much easier to be critical than to be correct.

Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881) British politician and author.
If you believe in what you are doing, then let nothing hold you up in your work. Much of the best work of the world has been done against seeming impossibilities. The thing is to get the work done.

Dale Carnegie (1888-1955) American writer.
Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do criticize him, you'll be a mile away and have his shoes.

Don't mind criticism. If it is untrue, disregard it; if unfair, keep from irritation; if it is ignorant, smile; if it is justified it is not criticism, learn from it.

Of all the cants which are canted in this canting world -- though the cant of hypocrites may be the worst -- the cant of criticism is the most tormenting!

Laurence Sterne (1713-1768) British writer.
Criticism is often not a science; it is a craft, requiring more good health than wit, more hard work than talent, more habit than native genius. In the hands of a man who has read widely but lacks judgment, applied to certain subjects it can corrupt both its readers and the writer himself.

Jean de la Bruyère (1645-1696) French satiric moralist.
It is from the womb of art that criticism was born.

Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867) French poet.
Criticism of others is futile and if you indulge in it often you should be warned that it can be fatal to your career.

Dale Carnegie (1888-1955) American writer.
Never trust the artist. Trust the tale. The proper function of a critic is to save the tale from the artist who created it.
