Sandwich every bit of criticism between two thick layers of praise.
Mary Kay Ash - Optimistic - Leadership - Criticism

The question is: Do we have a shadow government? And if we do, who are those intelligent minority that is guiding us through? And where are they guiding us to? If you skip past all of the puppet and the strings, if you stop looking at the puppets, themselves, you have to see who's behind the puppets. Who is choosing the puppets and the players? Who's the puppet master? George Soros. Now I am sure that this will be called a conspiracy theory. And quite honestly, a year ago, two years ago, I wouldn't have believed it myself.
Glenn Beck - Strange - America - Criticism - Government - Conspiracy Theory

Look at them, Smithers. Goldbrickers.. Layabouts.. Slug-a-beds! Little do they realise their days of suckling at my teat are numbered

It is now 14 years since I first suggested that organic farming might have some benefits and ought to be taken seriously. I shall never forget the vehemence of the reaction.. much of it coming from the sort of people who regard agriculture as an industrial process, with production as the sole yardstick of success.
Prince Charles - Criticism - Farming - Food - Organic - Success

The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum - even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there's free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate.
Noam Chomsky - Smart - Freedom of Speech -
Opinions - Criticism - System - Obedience

I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.
Hillary Rodham Clinton - America
- Encouragement - Criticism

I welcome opposing viewpoints, but I should warn you that you'll be facing off against the 2nd-place finisher at the 1981 Charleston County High-School Debate Tournament. And whatever became of that county champ who argued in favor of tractor safety modifications? Last time I checked, she didn't have her own show.
Stephen Colbert - Funny - Criticism

Harshness to me is giving somebody false hopes and not following through. That’s harsh. Telling some guy or some girl who’ve got zero talent that they have zero talent actually is a kindness.
Simon Cowell - Mean - Kind - Criticism - Hope
- Lies - Truth - Talent

I think you have to judge everything based on your personal taste. And if that means being critical, so be it. I hate political correctness. I absolutely loathe it.
Simon Cowell - Criticism - Political Correctness - Hate


The object of this competition is not to be mean to the losers but to find a winner. The process makes you mean because you get frustrated. Kids turn up unrehearsed, wearing the wrong clothes, singing out of tune and you can either say, "Good job" and patronize them or tell them the truth, and sometimes the truth is perceived as mean.
Simon Cowell - Mean - Truth - Criticism - Competition - Losing - Winning - Frustration
- Clothes

My attitude is, if someone's going to criticize me, tell me to my face.

Richard Dawkins - Religion - Science - Criticism - Knowing

Norman Finkelstein - Criticism - Focus - Hard Work - Insult


I've stopped caring about skeptics, but if they libel or defame me they will end up in court.
Uri Geller - Famous
- 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.
Julia Gillard - Criticism - Australia - Politics

We've got the most prosperous culture in human history and we've also got the biggest spiritual hole in human history. People are saying, "I can't fill the hole with money. I can't fill it with alcohol, or drugs, or sex, so what do I need to fill it with?"
Mark Victor Hansen - Life - Criticism - Money
- Sex

Carl Icahn - Management - Companies
- Criticism

It was quite tough, not many opportunities. I remember in primary school, one of my teachers said, "As for you young man, you haven't got much of a future."
John Ilhan - Criticism - Opportunity - Challenges


Don't let anyone say you can't do it.
John Ilhan - Criticism - Challenges


If you have enough people sitting around telling you you're wonderful, then you start believing you're fabulous, then someone tells you you stink and you believe that too.
Angelina Jolie - Criticism - Belief

If you're a car salesman, and someone says "This is a terrible car, I'm not buying it," it doesn't mean they hate you. They just don't like your product. I think that's a mistake a lot of people in show business make.. they're so tied to their act they take everything personally.
Jay Leno - Selling
- Products - Criticism - Mistakes

Republicans have become the party of red, white and blue rose colored glasses. By drowning out criticism with USA! USA!, they prevent this country from healing itself where it needs healing, and that is the opposite of Country First.
Bill Maher - Republican -
America - Criticism - Patriotic - Politics

Jesus, as a philosopher is wonderful. There's no greater role model, in my view, than Jesus Christ. It's just a shame that most of the people who follow him and call themselves Christians act nothing like him.
Bill Maher - Jesus -
Philosophy - Christianity - Religion

I do think the patriotic thing to do is to critique my country. How else do you make a country better but by pointing out its flaws?
Bill Maher - America -
Criticism - Patriotic

Karl Rove described Obama as "the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini, and making snide comments about everyone who passes by." Unlike George Bush, who's the guy at the country club who makes snide comments, and then passes out. Now this characterization, of course, was something Mr. Rove just completely pulled out of his bulbous, gelatinous a$$, but remember this is America, a land where people believe anything they hear.
Bill Maher - Republican -
America - Criticism - Politics - Stupid - Belief

If you have a few hundred followers and you let some of them molest children, they call you a cult leader. If you have a billion, they call you Pope.
Bill Maher - Criticism -
Christianity - Religion - Children - Responsibility - Crazy

Reviews for someone like me come in three packages. One is justifiable praise, the second is justifiable criticism, and the third is, "This is only published because he’s a celebrity."
Steve Martin - Famous - Criticism - Book - Praise

I'm 48. For a while after 'The Jerk' (movie) I had a feeling of failure. I was a little scared. First people discover you and they love you. You get big and then you fail. And people are glad that you fail. But I've always come back and I've started to trust myself.
Steve Martin - Famous - Criticism - Failure - Trust

I think the biggest frustration about reviews is when they criticize your best bit. And then you go, “What the ****?” I remember when I was a comedian, I’d get a bad review and they’d always fail to say that the audience was dying laughing.
Steve Martin - Criticism - Funny - Best - Frustration


The way to deal with superstition is not to be polite to it, but to tackle it with all arms, and so rout it, cripple it, and make it forever infamous and ridiculous. Is it, perchance, cherished by persons who should know better? Then their folly should be brought out into the light of day, and exhibited there in all its hideousness until they flee from it, hiding their heads in shame.
H. L. Mencken - Criticism - Stupid - Ideas

These b**tards who run our country are a bunch of conniving, thieving, smug pricks who need to be brought down and removed and replaced with a whole new system that we control.
Michael Moore - America - Politicians - Criticism - Government

The self-anointed media elite among us believe, somewhat self-servingly, that not only the act, or process of making a profit is positively sinister, but also that the very desire to do so is.
Lachlan Murdoch - Media - Belief - Profits
- Criticism

If you don't have enemies, you don't have character.
Paul Newman - Criticism - Challenges


Barack 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.
Michelle Obama - Politics - Criticism

I might add that in small towns, we don't quite know what to make of a candidate who lavishes praise on working people when they are listening, and then talks about how bitterly they cling to their religion and guns when those people aren't listening. (talking about Barack Obama at the Republican convention speech in 2008)
Sarah Palin -
Politicians - Politics - Praise - Criticism - Religion

Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
Chinese Proverbs -
Solutions - Criticism

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.
Kevin Rudd -
Australia - Politicians - Criticism - Problems - Climate Change - Solutions

We want a national emissions trading scheme, the Government does not and has rejected one for years. We want to boost the mandatory renewable energies target, the Government has failed to do that. We want a national demand side management strategy for the country to reduce electricity consumption and the Government, up until now, has done very little on that score.
Kevin Rudd -
Australia - Criticism - Environment - Government - Energy - Global Warming

I just don't really get into all that sort of personal negative stuff. My job is to outline some positive plans for the country's future and perhaps Mr. Howard and the Government don't like the fact that I'm putting out some positive alternatives. What's their preference.. for me to be a negative carping opposition leader?
Kevin Rudd -
Australia - Politicians - Criticism - Government - Negative - Positive - Planning

The art critics on some of Britain's newspapers could as easily have been assigned gardening or travel, and been cheerfully employed for life.

If you can't take a good kicking, you shouldn't parade how much luckier you are than other people.
Charles Saatchi - Criticism - Luck - People


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.
Charles Schwab - Management - Leadership - Work - Criticism


When I was on my way to the podium a gentleman stopped me and said I was as good a politician as I was an actor. What a cheap shot.
Arnold Schwarzenegger - Fun - Politicians - Criticism

The pro-Israel lobby has been remarkably successful in suppressing criticism. Politicians challenge it at their peril because of the lobby's ability to influence political contributions.
George Soros - Israel - Lobby - Criticism - Fund Raising - Politicians

Donald Rumsfeld. Love him or hate him, you've gotta admit: a lot of people hate him.
Jon Stewart - Politicians
- Funny - Love - Criticism

No matter who says what, you should accept it with a smile and do your own work.
Mother Teresa -
Work - Criticism - Encouragement

To speak practically and as a citizen, unlike those who call themselves no-government men, I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government. Let every man make known what kind of government would command his respect, and that will be one step toward obtaining it.
Henry David Thoreau - Government - Respect - Criticism - Improvement


No definition of poetry is adequate unless it be poetry itself. The most accurate analysis by the rarest wisdom is yet insufficient, and the poet will instantly prove it false by setting aside its requisitions. It is indeed all that we do not know.
Henry David Thoreau - Poetry - Wisdom - Criticism


I’m not nearly the saint some of my fans imagine and I’m nowhere near the devil my detractors wish, so you simply take both of those with a grain of salt.
