A Gigantic FUCK YOU to all critics, courtesy of TR

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”


LEGENDARY :rectum: :rectum:

Maybe this is an altogether different Teddy quote, but it says the same thing a bit more eloquently:

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in that gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.”

“Artists have to face criticism, but they also have to put up with insults and attacks from cranks.”–Raymond Lewenthal


“The immoral profession of musical criticism must be abolished.”
- Richard Wagner

And, a bit off topic… a lovely quote that I quite agree with:

“All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff.”
- Frank Zappa

Frank Zappa, such an interesting mofo.

-da Meph

“'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads.” - Clement Clarke Moore
