Famous quotes containing the word censure:

    They have a right to censure that have a heart to help: the rest is cruelty, not justice.
    William Penn (1644–1718)

    For be it remembered that we have not published any ... sentiment without having first ourselves carefully examined it on all sides. We expect not therefore ... a hasty censure because our opinions may happen to appear new as to some particular points, which our readers may never before have thoroughly examined.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)

    Everything here below beneath the sun is subject to continual change; and perhaps there is nothing which can be called more inconstant than opinion, which turns round in an everlasting circle like the wheel of fortune. He who reaps praise today is overwhelmed with biting censure tomorrow; today we trample under foot the man who tomorrow will be raised far above us.
    —E.T.A.W. (Ernst Theodor Amadeus Wilhelm)
