The only critic who helps me

“The only critic who helps me, is the man who will show me unsuspected connections, secret paths of thought, who will teach me how to extend my view, how I may pass quietly from the known to the unknown; who will show me that stars and flowers have voices, and that running water has a quiet spirit of its own; this is the interpreter and guide whom I would welcome, even if he only knows a little more than myself; but if my guide is infallible and disdainful, if he denies what I cannot see and derides what he has never felt, who ravages the regions where he has never been, then I feel that I have but one more enemy, in a place where I am beset with foes.” -Arthur Benson.
