Famous quotes containing the word criterion:

    Faith in reason as a prime motor is no longer the criterion of the sound mind, any more than faith in the Bible is the criterion of righteous intention.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    There is only one art, whose sole criterion is the power, the authenticity, the revelatory insight, the courage and suggestiveness with which it seeks its truth.... Thus, from the standpoint of the work and its worth it is irrelevant to which political ideas the artist as a citizen claims allegiance, which ideas he would like to serve with his work or whether he holds any such ideas at all.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)

    I divide all literary works into two categories: Those I like and those I don’t like. No other criterion exists for me.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)
