A man must serve his time to every trade Save censure--critics all are ready made. Take hackney'd jokes from Miller, got by rote, With just enough of learning to misquote; A mind well skill'd to find or forge a fault; A turn for punning, call it Attic salt; To Jeffrey go, be silent and discreet, His pay is just ten sterling pounds per sheet; Fear not to lie, 'twill seem a lucky hit; Shrink not from blasphemy, 'twill pass for wit; Care not for feeling--pass your proper jest, And stand a critic, hated yet caress'd. (Quote by - Lord Byron)

Many Democratic elected officials are critical of the president's handling of the war and overall performance, and, at the same time, do not want to be seen as just anti-war liberal Democrats.

Each generation produces its squad of "moderns" with peashooters to attack Gibraltar. (Quote by - Channing Pollock)

Any kind of censorship is wrong. If you got a student publication on your campus, it has every right to be critical of the administration in the same way the Tribune or Sun-Times has the right to criticize the governor. (Quote by - Ron Yates)

The man without a chin, no stamina, dead man, broken man, whatever. On your way to the top, you always get some criticism. Criticism is a great motivation. Failure is not an option to me. (Quote by - Wladimir Klitschko)

I'm an owl: you're another. Sir Critic, good day. And the barber kept on shaving. (Quote by - James Thomas Fields)

I've learned to not take media criticism personally, .. Seven or eight years ago, I would have said 'I hate the media; there are people in it who are always bashing me.' Now I understand that, when someone writes something negative about me, it's part of the game. Media criticism will destroy you if you take it personally, so now I play with it. I stay away from politics. Some people criticize me for that, but it's a choice I've made. I have my views, but politics can be very sensitive. I've struggled so hard to get fans and people behind me for what I want to accomplish that it would be a mistake to support one party publicly and have the other party against me. (Quote by - Oscar De La Hoya)
