Negative criticism sometimes achieves those conversions of the soul which significantly modify the problems.
“Constructive” criticism only multiplies catastrophes.

  1. The original Spanish is:

    La crítica “estéril” logra a veces esas conversiones del alma que modifican substancialmente los problemas.
    La crítica “constructiva” sólo multiplica catástrofes.

    I translated estéril here as "negative," rather than "sterile," which is the literal meaning of the word, in order to make the English translation more idiomatic.
