People react to criticism in different ways, and my way is definitely to come out fighting.
To announce that there must be no criticism of the president... is morally treasonable to the American public.
To me, constructive criticism is when people take ownership of their ideas. That's why I don't listen to anything that's anonymous. But it's hard; when there's something hurtful out there, I still want to read it over and over and memorize it and explain my point of view to the person.
To work in architecture you are so much involved with society, with politics, with bureaucrats. It's a very complicated process to do large projects. You start to see the society, how it functions, how it works. Then you have a lot of criticism about how it works.
Everything has added up to a load that I'm getting tired of carrying. It's gotten so complicated. It's the three failed marriages, and having kids that grew up without me, and it's the personal criticism, of being Mr. Nice Guy, or of divorcing my wife by fax, all that stuff, the journalism, some of which I find insulting.
Compliments and criticism are all ultimately based on some form of projection.
You have to take criticism with a grain of salt because you're never going to please everybody.
Ascetics and fakirs come to mitigate human suffering; to heal us and lead us on the path. They put up with criticism; they go through many worldly trials. Some of them have even become martyrs for our sake. But they have done all this with a smile and with gratitude to God. Hence sacrifice is a great virtue.
Every human being is entitled to courtesy and consideration. Constructive criticism is not only to be expected but sought.
Margaret Chase Smith
Few people have the wisdom to prefer the criticism that would do them good, to the praise that deceives them.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
If you keep your feathers well oiled the water of criticism will run off as from a duck's back.
Ellen Swallow Richards
The clear problem of the outlawing of insult is that too many things can be interpreted as such. Criticism, ridicule, sarcasm, merely stating an alternative point of view to the orthodoxy, can be interpreted as insult.
You can't let praise or criticism get to you. It's a weakness to get caught up in either one.
Sandwich every bit of criticism between two layers of praise.
Mary Kay Ash
One of my favorite little sayings is, 'To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.'
Robert M. Gates
For some reason if we hear 100 praises and one criticism, we focus on that one hurtful thing.
I have yet to find the man, however exalted his station, who did not do better work and put forth greater effort under a spirit of approval than under a spirit of criticism.
I've no regrets at all, but I still think at times that I would have loved to play in England. You live football over there; it's a great culture. People respect you more; it's more difficult to find respect in Spain. There is more criticism here.
I am sorry to think that you do not get a man's most effective criticism until you provoke him. Severe truth is expressed with some bitterness.
Henry David Thoreau
Criticism and pessimism destroy families, undermine institutions of all kinds, defeat nearly everyone, and spread a shroud of gloom over entire nations.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Constructive criticism is about finding something good and positive to soften the blow to the real critique of what really went on.
Science must begin with myths, and with the criticism of myths.
Dare to risk public criticism.
Mary Kay Ash
It would be very easy for us to do a collection that everybody would like and not criticize. But criticism is a part of life. You have to take it.
Perhaps it would be better for science, that all criticism should be avowed.
John F. Kennedy
