A Quote by unknown on ability, aim, appreciation, beauty, creativity, criticism, decisions, destruction, discrimination, facts, judgment, meaning, traditions, truth, and work

The real aim of criticism is not the destruction of cherished traditions - although a due regard for the facts does often compel us to revise older opinions - but a fuller appreciation of the beauty and truth of the creative work on which it fixes its regard. The word "criticism" is derived from the Greek word kritikos, which means "the ability to select or discriminate," hence, to decide or judge. The meaning of criticism is thus discriminating judgment.
