Life: Critics and art edition

“What’s the good of fighting critics? Mind you, some of them are very able… But only a few can form any opinion of a new work. Most of them are simply on the lookout for novelty. They hear too much, and they hear it the wrong way. They get like children who are peevish from having too many toys…”

“Nothing, nothing whatever really stands in the way of a creative artist except lack of talent.”

—Robertson Davies, A Mixture of Frailties
