Quote of the Day

I critique myself way harder than anybody else could critique me.
Constructive criticism is about finding something good and positive to soften the blow to the real critique of what really went on.
I'm honest about expressing my opinions. At the same time, I'm diplomatic in how I do critique things if I have a negative response.
An art whose medium is language will always show a high degree of critical creativeness, for speech is itself a critique of life: it names, it characterizes, it passes judgment, in that it creates.
He who stands aloof runs the risk of believing himself better than others and misusing his critique of society as an ideology for his private interest.
I love my family, even as I critique their dysfunctionalities.
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.
There are certain books in the world which every searcher for truth must know: the Bible, the Critique of Pure Reason, the Origin of Species, and Karl Marx's Capital.
The heart of the theater is the play itself, how it dramatizes life to make it meaningful entertainment.

Race and class are rendered distinct analytically only to produce the realization that the analysis of the one cannot proceed without the other. A different dynamic it seems to me is at work in the critique of new sexuality studies.

America is not static. America is striving. And sometimes, America requires critique. Jingoism is an avoidance of realism.

Charles M. Blow

I have friends who will critique me much harder than any review.
John F. Kennedy
