The term ‘cyberutopian’ tends to be used only in the context of critique. Calling someone a cyberutopian implies that he or she has an unrealistic and naively overinflated sense of what technology makes possible and an insufficient understanding of the forces that govern societies.
Ethan Zuckerman
For me, honest critique is not all about your feelings and your ear. Honest critique is sitting down with an album that you may not put on in your spare time, and really digging into that album, so you can talk about the beat selection.
Joe Budden
I watch a lot of myself, just to critique myself.

Eliza Coupe
I think as you get older, you realize there’s always going to be critics. Critics are going to win every time because they can change their critique based on the stats and their own personal feelings. It’s less about proving people wrong, the critics wrong, and it’s more about challenging myself to keep this level up.
Aaron Rodgers
If I am popular across the board, from teenagers to pensioners, it’s not because I’m trying to be family-orientated, it’s because my mum vets all my shows! I always get a critique from her and she’s very harsh.
Peter Kay
I don’t want to critique an apology. An apology is an apology.
Rachel Lindsay
I think that you need to balance a critique of feminine, patriarchal beauty ideals while simultaneously understanding how they can make you safe, and they can make you feel safe, and they can open up certain doors for you that would have been closed.
Hari Nef
Whether you chose a passive-aggressive husband, workaholic wife, or life of single motherhood, we are all officially allowed – and uniquely qualified – to critique our own life experience. Please don’t pretend you’re living mine.
Rachel Simmons
The idea of peer critique, of talking about each other’s art – I just found it so useless.
Win Butler
I’m sick of people who supported Trump saying, ‘Get over it. You lost.’ That’s not how America works. We get to critique him the same way they constantly fought Obama. As long as I have a platform, I will continue to speak up because it’s my responsibility.
Stan Van Gundy
As an NFL analyst, my job was to watch countless hours of game film and critique NFL coaches and that’s what I’ve been doing the last 10 years. And there are coaches that I question in the NFL, and at other big collegiate institutions.

Jessica Alba
We critique all politicians who are in power, whenever there’s a talking point.

Paul Ricoeur
I critique myself way harder than anybody else could critique me.

I've run as a Democrat, but I was not a Democrat. And w

I’ve run as a Democrat, but I was not a Democrat. And when I ran as a Republican, I was not a Republican. I was just utilizing the New Hampshire primary as a vehicle to put forward my satirical critique of the system.
Vermin Supreme
The first modern novel was already a product, even an expression, of negative criticism: ‘Don Quixote’ contains a quite explicit critique of the chivalric romance and its insufficiency to account for the way real life feels when you get up in the morning in 17th-century Spain.
Elif Batuman
The thing we call critics are not really reviewers, they are not really critics. They don’t have the discipline to write what we would term as critique – it’s really just reviewers. They have a common man kind of taste. If you watch them overall, they are not different from the box-office. That’s my view.
Ang Lee
Quite a few plays I have written have an implicit critique of capitalism in that, if you follow it through to its end, what happens to the people who are left behind?
Mike Bartlett
The culture of critique undermines the spirit not only of people in public roles but of those who read about them, afraid to believe in anyone or anything because the next story… will tell them why they shouldn’t.
Deborah Tannen
Utopias are presented for our inspection as a critique of the human state.
William Golding

I don’t tend to offer up a critique unless I have a clearly formulated alternative, because there’s nothing worse than people on a set or any kind of artistic life who critique something but who don’t have anything to offer.
Chiwetel Ejiofor
A lot of politics in art is just institutional critique, which, in my opinion, is not all that political.

Paul Farmer
Though there are plenty of reasons to critique U.S. foreign policy and the way in which the U.S. military enacts it, serving your country has long been a way for economically marginalized Americans to get an economic step up – and could be for trans people as well.
Chelsea Manning
I’m not going to critique every utterance of the president.
Mitch McConnell
When I come home and have a new song I’ve written, she gives me an honest critique. If my wife likes it, I know I have something.
Charles Kelley
America is not static. America is striving. And sometimes, America requires critique. Jingoism is an avoidance of realism. You can simultaneously love and be disappointed in the object of your love, wanting it to be better than it is. In fact, that is a measure of love. Honest critique is a pillar of patriotism.
Charles M. Blow
I’ve been writing long enough to know that fiction, as a rhetorical mode, works very differently from expository writing. If an author has a specific critique about contemporary society in mind, fiction tends not to be the best means to deliver that critique.
Ken Liu

Taryn Simon
I always critique myself but I’m realistic – I know I can do better but I’m never that hard on myself, either.
Francesca Hayward
Science fiction has always been a means for political comment. H.G. Wells’ ‘The War of the Worlds’ wasn’t about a Martian invasion – it was a critique of British colonialism, and… ‘The Time Machine’ is really an indictment of the British class system.
Robert J. Sawyer
You don’t criticize or critique your teammates if they’re having a hard time. You try to encourage them just like you hope that they’ll encourage you.
Mookie Betts

Michelle Dean
The series ‘Generation Kill’ is, along with everything else, a sustained critique of the structural and conventional fictions of ‘The Hurt Locker.’
Geoff Dyer

John Madden
Since philosophy now criticizes everything it comes across, a critique of philosophy would be nothing less than a just reprisal.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
Crucially, Marxist atheism is only achieved once the theological critique of capitalism is completed. This is what separates Marxist atheism from the gliberal platitudes of the likes of Nick Cohen, who proclaim secularism while remaining attached to the theology of capital (liberal commonsense).
Mark Fisher
‘This Is Not That Dawn’ is remarkable in part for its careful and sensitive attention to women’s lives – and also for its harsh critique of men and their failure to stop violence.
Karan Mahajan

Vivek Oberoi
Am I an Apple bigot? No. I can critique their products

Am I an Apple bigot? No. I can critique their products and their customer service philosophy. But overall, they do better than any other player.
Donald Norman
Every wrestler I’ve ever had critique me, they were always into my stuff or what I’m doing out there. For a non-wrestler, someone who doesn’t even know how to lock up, and if we did lock up, they wouldn’t know what to do, for them to critique any of us, it really does pop me.
Roman Reigns
I started writing short stories. I tried writing horror, mystery, science fiction. I joined a little critique group here in town and ran my stories past them. After about three years, I tackled my first novel, Subterranean. It took me 11 months to write.
James Rollins
The heart of the theater is the play itself, how it dramatizes life to make it meaningful entertainment. To achieve depth and universality, the playwright must subject himself to intense critique, to know human character and behavior, and finally to construct art from the most mundane of human experience.
