Five Great Quotations about Book Critics

“It is Disgust-15793_1920advantageous to an author that his book should be attacked as well as praised. Fame is a shuttlecock. If it be struck at one end of the room, it will soon fall to the ground. To keep it up, it must be struck at both ends.” - Samuel Johnson

“Pay no attention to what the critics say; no statue has ever been erected to a critic.” - Jean Sibelius

“When a man publishes a book, there are so many stupid things said that he declares he’ll never do it again. The praise is almost always worse than the criticism.” – Sherwood Anderson

“I have long felt that any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has just put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae or banana split.” - Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

“A critic is a man who knows the way but can't drive the car.” - Kenneth Tynan

Whether you live in a big city like Phoenix or a small town like Starr, South Carolina, I can provide that second eye.
