Two DWMs in a row!

The respect inspired by a good criticism is permanent, whilst the irritation is causes is temporary... On the other hand, the pleasure given by a venal criticism is temporary, and the contempt it inspires permanent... The cardinal guarantee for a critic's integrity is simply the force of the critical instinct itself.

—Bernard Shaw, "The Case for the Critic-Dramatist"
