When reading reviews remember:
"Critics are like eunuchs in a harem; they know how its done, they've seen it done every day, but they're unable to do it themselves."
--Brendan Behan (successful Irish dramatist)

"Having the critics praise you is like having the hangman say you've got a pretty neck."
--Eli Wallach (award winning screen actor)
