Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Doubtless criticism


Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: “Doubtless criticism was originally benignant, pointing out the beauties of a work rather that its defects. The passions of men have made it malignant, as a bad heart of Procrustes turned the bed, the symbol of repose, into an instrument of torture.”

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
