Toasts to Critics

Here's to a good critic who, as Anatole France said, "relates the adventures of his soul among masterpieces."

To the critic - someone who likes to write about things he doesn't like.

To our critics I offer the wise words of Benjamin Disraeli, who said, "It is much easier to be critical than to be correct."

To our critics I give the words of Rudolf Bing, who said, "I am perfectly happy to believe that nobody likes us but the public."

To the critics' patron saint, Harry S. Truman, to whom these immortal words are attributed: "If you can't stand the heat, you'd better get out of the kitchen.
