“A critic is someone who enters the battlefield after the war is over and shoots the wounded.”
Murray Kempton
tags: humor

“By adherence to a special set of rules, the child of the shabby-genteel can sometimes leap across the time which has passed by his family and function in the real world without doing violence to the hopes his mother held out for him. But those who cannot live within this pattern are the freaks and poets, and they travel a different road to peace.”
Murray Kempton, Part of Our Time: Some Ruins & Monuments of the Thirties

“A critic is someone who enters the battlefield after the war and shoots the injured.”
