Five Great Quotations about Book Critics

“I suspect 0001mthat most authors don't really want criticism, not even constructive criticism. They want straight-out, unabashed, unashamed, fulsome, informed, naked praise, arriving by the shipload every fifteen minutes or so.” - Neil Gaiman

“Better (to) put a fox in a henhouse than to ask an author to judge his peers.” - Jack McClelland

“One can scarcely be frightened off writing what one wants to write for fear an obscure reviewer should patronise one on that account.” - Dorothy L. Sayers

“I think I was forty before I realized that almost every writer of fiction and poetry who has ever published a line has been accused by someone of wasting his or her God-given talent. If you write (or paint or dance or sculpt or sing, I suppose), someone will try to make you feel lousy about it, that’s all.” - Stephen King

“Don’t worry about what people are going to think about you. Just write what you want to write.” - Jackie Collins
