Criterion Quotes:

When it comes to social consequences, they’ve got all different people acting in different ways, very difficult to even have a proper criterion of success. So, it’s a difficult task.

George Soros

Part of my problem as a young writer was that I was too much a New Yorker, always second-guessing the ‘market.’ I became so discouraged that I decided to write something that would please me alone – that became my sole criterion. And that was when I wrote ‘Forgetting Elena,’ the first novel I got published.

Edmund White

Only a man’s character is the real criterion of worth.

Eleanor Roosevelt

We need somebody who’s got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it’s like to be a young teenage mom, the empathy to understand what it’s like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old – and that’s the criterion by which I’ll be selecting my judges.

Barack Obama

A mission statement is not something you write overnight… But fundamentally, your mission statement becomes your constitution, the solid expression of your vision and values. It becomes the criterion by which you measure everything else in your life.

Stephen Covey

If you have a family mission statement that clarifies what your purpose is, then you use that as the criterion by which you make the decisions.

Stephen Covey

A slender acquaintance with the world must convince every man that actions, not words, are the true criterion of the attachment of friends.

George Washington

Appetite is essentially insatiable, and where it operates as a criterion of both action and enjoyment (that is, everywhere in the Western world since the sixteenth century) it will infallibly discover congenial agencies (mechanical and political) of expression.

Marshall McLuhan

The winner’s edge is not in a gifted birth, a high IQ, or in talent. The winner’s edge is all in the attitude, not aptitude. Attitude is the criterion for success.

Denis Waitley

If we are to take for the criterion of truth the majority of suffrages, they ought to be gotten from those philosophic and patriotic citizens who cultivate their reason.

James Madison

A military is built to fight. Our military must regard combat capability as the criterion to meet in all its work and focus on how to win when it is called on.

Xi Jinping

I think the core criterion is the social awkwardness, but the sensory issues are a serious problem in many, many cases of autism, and they make it impossible to operate in the environment where you’re supposed to be social.

Temple Grandin

I believe that the testing of the student’s achievements in order to see if he meets some criterion held by the teacher, is directly contrary to the implications of therapy for significant learning.

Carl Rogers

The first test any poem must pass is no longer, ‘Is it true to nature?’ but a criterion looking in a different direction: namely, ‘Is it sincere? Is it genuine?’

M. H. Abrams

New Orleans invented the brown paper bag party – usually at a gathering in a home – where anyone darker than the bag attached to the door was denied entrance. The brown bag criterion survives as a metaphor for how the black cultural elite quite literally establishes caste along color lines within black life.

Michael Eric Dyson

I love things like the Criterion Collection DVDs. I think those are really well done. I like how far you can push the deluxe-ness of things like that.

Phil Elverum

There are so many ways to characterize evolutionary success. If one criterion is the number of millions of years that the species persists, we’re still just infants. We’re way too young of a species to tell if we were a creative fluke or if we have any staying power.

Greg Graffin

Our empirical criterion for a series of theories is that it should produce new facts. The idea of growth and the concept of empirical character are soldered into one.

Imre Lakatos

Responsibility has become the fundamental imperative in modern civilization, and it should be an unavoidable criterion to assess and evaluate human actions, including, in a special way, development activities.

Hans Jonas

Although I now spend most of my time writing novels for teenagers and adults, ‘readaloudability’ is still a criterion I try to adhere to.

Mal Peet

The criterion for free choice can never be an absolute one, but neither is it entirely relative.

Herbert Marcuse

Looking back at my matches since 2002, there is one main criterion for me which marks a club which is successful in the long-term: big players, who have grown with their clubs, whose names are tied to the success and who have a 100 per cent identification with the team, the club and its history.

Philipp Lahm

Profit is the sole criterion used by the establishment to evaluate economic activity. From the rat race to lame ducks. The vocabulary in vogue is a give-away. It’s more reminiscent of a human menagerie than human society.

Jimmy Reid

The first and foremost criterion for me when selecting a film is the character I am playing, and then the director.

Shruti Haasan

The criterion for racism is either objective or it’s meaningless: If liberals get to decide for themselves who is or isn’t a racist according to their political lights, conservatives will be within their rights to ignore them.

Bret Stephens

Ideally citizens are to think of themselves as if they were legislators and ask themselves what statutes, supported by what reasons satisfying the criterion of reciprocity, they would think is most reasonable to enact.

John Rawls

I am a romantic, in a literary way, by which I mean the Romantic poets, who thought just because a sensation is fleeting doesn’t mean it isn’t valuable. If the only criterion of value is whether something lasts, then the whole of human life is a waste of time.

Sebastian Faulks

I just got a Filmstruck account so I can watch all of those Criterion movies streaming. I’ve been nerding out about that.

Hiro Murai

I don’t lead a particularly Bohemian existence. The main criterion for me is not to be judgemental of other people so long as what they do is not harmful or offensive to others.

Nick Clegg

Speaking to the coach has been my number-one criterion at every club I’ve played for to find out what he expects from me, how he will make me improve, and that he’ll play me.

Dimitri Payet

Our assessment of socio-economic worth is largely a sham. We scientists should not lend ourselves to it – though we routinely do. We should, instead, insist on applying the criterion of quality.

John Polanyi

I played all sports when I was young. I was into wrestling, basketball, baseball, football, and I ran track. But wrestling was my main sport because there was no criterion height-wise.

Muggsy Bogues

I don’t compose songs to showcase my proficiency in music or to please hard-core music lovers. The basic criterion is that my work should reach all sections of music lovers.

D. Imman

The remediableness criterion is an effort to deal symmetrically with real world institutions, both public and private, warts and all. The criterion is this: an extant mode of organization for which no superior feasible form of organization can be described and implemented with expected net gains is presumed to be efficient.

Oliver E. Williamson

By the fourth grade, I graduated to an erector set and spent many happy hours constructing devices of unknown purpose where the main design criterion was to maximize the number of moving parts and overall size.

Steven Chu

If reason is a universal faculty, the decision of the common mind is the nearest criterion of truth.

George Bancroft

By what criterion… can we distinguish among the numberless effects, that are also causes, and among the causes that may, for aught we can know, be also effects, – how can we distinguish which are the means and which are the ends?

Chauncey Wright

If I knew how to operate a DVR, you’d find episodes of ‘The Tavis Smiley Show,’ ‘Democracy Now!’ and lots of stuff from TV Land. What you can find now on my Hulu account are Korean soap operas, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and films from the Criterion collection.

T’Keyah Crystal Keymah

It’s silly to have a prototype, because one inevitably falls for someone unexpected. My only criterion is she shouldn’t just look nice; she must have a personality, too.

Arjun Kapoor

To seek the timeless way we must first know the quality without a name. There is a central quality which is the root criterion of life and spirit in a man, a town, a building, or a wilderness. This quality is objective and precise, but it cannot be named.

Christopher Alexander

I think there have to be Bachs and Beethovens. We may have – there are so many more people. Musical training is available to so many more, but it may be that we’ve hit a right wall in terms of accessible styles and since we demand innovation as a criterion of genius, there may not be more innovative styles to be found.

Stephen Jay Gould

I emphasize that virtually every engineering calculation is ultimately a failure calculation, because without a failure criterion against which to measure the calculated result, it is a meaningless number.

Henry Petroski

The mental capacity of a person to make reasonable contracts, is the only criterion, by which to determine his legal capacity to make obligatory contracts. And his mental capacity to make reasonable contracts is certainly not to be determined by the fact that he is, or is not, twenty-one years of age.

Lysander Spooner

If approval was a criterion in this country, nothing would ever get done.

Emmanuel Macron

In all great epochs of history, the existence of standards – that is, the conscious adoption of type-forms – has been the criterion of a polite, well-ordered society; for it is a commonplace that repetition of the same things for the same purpose exercises a settling and civilizing influence on men’s minds.

Walter Gropius

I read little nonfiction, but I have no boundaries about the fiction I relish. The only unfailing criterion is that I can hitch my heart to the imagined world and read on.

Scott Turow

Sporting events like the Olympics have developed and maintained a clear message of promoting gender equality as an essential criterion in the success of any international event.

Richard Attias

The most important criterion is this: hire someone whose character and humility and attitude you would like to have reproduced in your church and in yourself.

John Ortberg

Twenty five percent of Israeli citizens are not even Jewish. Anybody can become an Israeli citizen if you qualify. Religion is not a criterion for citizenship.

Alan Dershowitz

Allah says in the Qur’an not to despise one another. So the criterion in Islam is not color or social status. It’s who is most righteous. If I go to a mosque – and I’m a basketball player with money and prestige – if I go to a mosque and see an imam, I feel inferior. He’s better than me. It’s about knowledge.

Hakeem Olajuwon

There is a criterion by which you can judge whether the thoughts you are thinking and the things you are doing are right for you. The criterion is: Have they brought you inner peace?

Peace Pilgrim

A standard, rule or test on which a judgment or decision may be based is a criterion.
