I yearn for constructive criticism
"-The artist is the creator of beautiful things.
-To reveal art and conceal the artists is art's aim.
-The critic is he who can translate into another manner of a new material his impression of beautiful things.
-The highest, as the lowest, form of criticism is a mode of autobiography.
-Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault.
-Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope.
-They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty.
-There is no such things as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.
-The moral life of man forms part of the the subject-matter of the artist, but the morality of art consists in the perfectuse of an imperfect medium. No artist desires to prove anything. Even things that are true can be proved.
-No artist has ethical sympathies. An ethical sympathy in an artist is an unpardonable mannerism of style.
-No artist is ever morbid. The artist can express everything.
-Thought and language are to the artist instruments for an art.
-All art is at once surface and symbol.
-Those who go beneath the surface do so at their peril.
-It is the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors.
-Diversity of opinion about a work of art shows that the work is new, complex, and vital.
-When critics disagree the artist is in accord with himself.
-We can forgive a man for making a useful thing as long as he does not admire it. The only excuse for making a useless thing is that one admires it intensely.
-All art is quite useless."
