The critic who doesn’t make a personal statement, in re measurements he himself has made, is merely an unreliable critic. He is not a measurer but a repeater of other men’s results.
 
KRINO, to pick out for oneself, to choose. That’s what the word means.
 
No one would be foolish enough to ask me to pick out a horse or even an automobile for him.

from ABC of Reading by Ezra Pound (1934)
