REPROACH
[ Also see Reproof ]

The silent upbraiding of the eye is the very poetry of reproach; it speaks at once to the imagination.
      - Mrs. Clara Lucas Balfour

Reproof, especially as it relates to children, administered in all gentleness, will render the culprit not afraid, but ashamed to repeat the offence.
      - Hosea Ballou

Reproach is usually honest, which is more than can be said of praise.
      - Honore de Balzac

Too much reproach "o'erleaps itself, and falls on t' other side." Pricked up too sharply, the delinquent, like a goaded bull, grows sullen and savage, and, the persecution continuing, ends in rushing madly on the spear that wounds him.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

The reproach of a friend should be strictly just, but not too frequent.
      - Eustace Budgell

If merited, no courage can stand against its just indignation.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

True invective requires great imagination.
      - George William Curtis

Does a man reproach thee for being proud or ill-natured, envious or conceited, ignorant or detracting? Consider with thyself whether his reproaches are true. If they are not, consider that thou art not the person whom he reproaches, but that he reviles an imaginary being, and perhaps loves what thou really art, though he hates what thou appearest to be.
      - Epictetus

Reproach is infinite, and knows no end.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios")

When a man feel the reprehension of a friend seconded by his own heart, he is easily heated into resentment.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

I never was fit to say a word to a sinner, except when I had a broken heart myself; when I was subdued and melted into penitence, and felt as though I had just received pardon for my own soul, and when my heart was full of tenderness and pity.
      - Edward Payson

Before thou reprehend another, take heed thou art not culpable in what thou goest about to reprehend. He that cleanses a blot with blotted fingers makes a greater blur.
      - Francis Quarles

Men are almost always cruel in their neighbors' faults; and make others' overthrow the badge of their own ill-masked virtue.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)
