Praise
To refuse praise reveals a desire to be praised twice over.

- François

- La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
In almost everything that touches our everyday life on earth, God is pleased when we're pleased. He wills that we be as free as birds to soar and sing our maker's praise without anxiety.

- Tozer, A. W.
A refusal of praise is a desire to be praised twice.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Oh Sleep! it is a gentle thing, beloved from pole to pole, to Mary Queen the praise be given! She sent the gentle sleep from Heaven, that slid into my soul.

- Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
As a bathtub lined with white porcelain, when the hot water gives out or goes tepid, so is the slow cooling of our chivalrous passion, o my much praised but-not-altogether-satisfactory lady.

- Pound, Ezra
FOREORDINATION, n. This looks like an easy word to define, but when I consider that pious and learned theologians have spent long lives in explaining it, and written libraries to explain their explanations; when I remember the nations have been divided and bloody battles caused by the difference between foreordination and predestination, and that millions of treasure have been expended in the effort to prove and disprove its compatibility with freedom of the will and the efficacy of prayer, praise, and a religious life, -- recalling these awful facts in the history of the word, I stand appalled before the mighty problem of its signification, abase my spiritual eyes, fearing to contemplate its portentous magnitude, reverently uncover and humbly refer it to His Eminence Cardinal Gibbons and His Grace Bishop Potter.

- Ambrose Bierce
Someone praising a man for his foolhardy bravery, Cato, the elder, said, There is a wide difference between true courage and a mere contempt of life.

- Plutarch
It is no great thing to be humble when you are brought low; but to be humble when you are praised is a great and rare attainment.

- Saint Bernard
People blame themselves for the purpose of being praised.

- Proverb
Men sometimes feel injured by praise because it assigns a limit to their merit; few people are modest enough not to take offense that one appreciates them.

- Vauvenargues, Marquis De
The meanest, most contemptible kind of praise is that which first speaks well of a man, and then qualifies it with a "but".

- Henry Ward Beecher
Do everything with a mind that lets go. Do not expect praise or reward.

- Chah, Achaan
Think not those faithful who praise all thy words and actions; but those who kindly reprove thy faults.

- Socrates
Your friends praise your abilities to the skies, submit to you in argument, and seem to have the greatest deference for you; but, though they may ask it, you never find them following your advice upon their own affairs; nor allowing you to manage your own, without thinking that you should follow theirs. Thus, in fact, they all think themselves wiser than you, whatever they may say.

- Melbourne, Lord
A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.

There is no investment you can make which will pay you so well as the effort to scatter sunshine and good cheer through your establishment.

- Marden, Orison Swett
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever, is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things. [Philippians 4:8]

- Bible
