Famous quotes containing the word critical:

    His misfortune was that he loved youth—he was weak to it, it kindled him. If there was one eager eye, one doubting, critical mind, one lively curiosity in a whole lecture-room full of commonplace boys and girls, he was its servant. That ardour could command him. It hadn’t worn out with years, this responsiveness, any more than the magnetic currents wear out; it had nothing to do with Time.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    You took my heart in your hand
    With a friendly smile,
    With a critical eye you scanned,
    Then set it down,
    And said: It is still unripe,
    Better wait awhile;
    Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    The critical method which denies literary modernity would appear—and even, in certain respects, would be—the most modern of critical movements.
    Paul Deman (1919–1983)
