Awesome Quotes: Criticism – Making and Taking It


Criticism – both positive and negative – is a part of life, whether you like it or not. There are always those who do not hesitate before hurling careless pieces of ‘advice’ at you. It takes some grit, heart, and determination to get through times like those. You have to believe.

Okay, enough of the humdrum serious introductions, let’s lighten up a bit here. The last edition of Awesome Quotes was serious enough. This time round, though the theme sounds pretty deadpan, I have tried to make it as humorous and lively as I can. These kind of features can get boring real quick.

So, with a fresh collection of quotes at your disposal, enjoy and get inspired!


“The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.” – Oscar Wilde

I guess we can all agree with that.

“To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.” – Aristotle

“Be an encourager. The world has plenty of critics already.” – Dave Willis

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

Amazingly explained, don’t you think?

“Throughout the centuries, there were men who took first steps down new roads, armed with nothing but their own vision.” – Ayn Rand

This one sounds so much like something Tolkien would say. Add a little upbeat soundtrack and have Cumberbatch read this and you have inspiration on-the-go!

“Oh, you hate your job? Why didn’t you say so? There’s a support group for that. It’s called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar.” – Drew Carey

So, stop whining and go have yourself a little session of therapy.

“Before you criticise someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticise them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.” – Jack Handey

This one is definitely the best of the lot.
