are always protests, whether you do something good or bad.
Even if you do something beneficial, people say you do it
because it's advertising.
Armani # Protest,
you are displeased, it is much easier to criticize and condemn
than it is to try to understand the other person's viewpoint.
Carnegie # Criticism
realize that criticisms are like homing pigeons. They always
Carnegie # Criticism
- The ability
to give objective feedback to oneself is in fact the mark
of the expert.
Csikszentmihalyi # Criticism,
- The Prime
Minister seems now to be basing his re-election campaign on
this plot line. He is saying to the Australian people, look
out, the baddies behind you - hiss, boo and whatever you do,
don't vote Labor. This political parody of pantomime is looking
and sounding desperate.
Gillard # Elections,
Jim and I are interested in the limits of conventional decision-making.
The idea that an expert will give you the best outcome --
we think that's inadequate. You need a whole palate of different
strategies. We're critiquing the same narrow ideology.
Gladwell # Thinking,
- I have
never understood the importance of having children memorize
battle dates. It seems like such a waste of mental energy.
Instead, we could teach them important subjects such as How
the Mind Works, How to Handle Finances, How to Invest Money
for Financial Security, How to be a Parent, How to Create
Good Relationships, and How to Create and Maintain Self-Esteem
and Self-Worth. Can you imagine what a whole generation of
adults would be like if they had been taught these subjects
in school along with their regular curriculum?
Hay # Children,
- The very
purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticize
others. Rather, we must criticize ourselves. How much am I
doing about my anger? About my attachment, about my hatred,
about my pride, my jealousy? These are the things which we
must check in daily life.
Lama # Religion,

Maher # Patriotic,
we talk about values, I think of rationality in solving problems.
That's something I value. Fairness, kindness, generosity,
tolerance. When they talk about values, they're talking about
things like going to church, voting for Bush, being loyal
to Jesus, praying. These are not values.
Maher # Challenging,
and I have been in the public eye for many years now, and
we've developed a thick skin along the way. When you're out
campaigning, there will always be criticism. I just take it
in stride, and at the end of the day, I know that it comes
with the territory.
Obama # Criticism,
- The trouble
with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise
than saved by criticism.
Vincent Peale # Criticism
- We were
vulnerable because we were so high profile. We were openly
challenging the system, challenging the role of business.
Roddick # Business,
Howard's credibility on the entire Iraq war has been torpedoed
by John Howard's own intelligence agency.
Rudd # Criticism,
is about power. It is about the power of the state. It is
about the power of the state as applied to individuals, the
society in which they live and the economy in which they work.
Most critically, our responsibility in this parliament is
how that power is used: whether it is used for the benefit
of the few or the many.
Rudd # Politics,
- Mr Howard's
problem is for so long he's been a climate change sceptic,
how can he, therefore, put himself to the country as part
of a climate change solution for the future.
Rudd # Thinking,
- 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.
R. Schwab # Criticism,
has failed in a very serious way to convey the most important
lesson science can teach: skepticism.
Suzuki # Education,
- I think
I'm more difficult than critical.
Teresa # Criticism,

Trump # Criticism
