Criticism and Joy.  Criticism, one-sided and unjust as well as intelligent criticism, gives so much pleasure to him who exercises it that the world is indebted to every work and every action that inspires much criticism and many critics.  For criticism draws after it a glittering train of joyousness, wit, self-admiration, pride, instruction, designs of improvement.  The God of joy created the bad and the mediocre for the same reason that he created the good.
