I don't agree, but it's funny nonetheless.

Leonard Cohen:
“Well, look, you have to be very charitable to reviewers. They're very unhappy people who have generally failed in an art form they would have liked to excel in. [...] You have to be extremely gentle and tender and pedagogical with reviewers. It doesn't do at all to be nasty at them, to … to fire off obscene telegrams as I occasionally do to them. I regret all these things because we really have to coddle them along and educate them.”
