praise

Praise quotes
Praise
When one cannot appraise out of one's own experience, the temptation to blunder is minimized, but even when one can, appraisal seems chiefly useful as appraisal of the appraiser.

- Moore, Marianne
Pray night and day, very quietly, like a little weary child, to the good and loving God, for everything you want, in body as well as soul--the least thing as well as the greatest. Nothing is too much to ask God for--nothing too great for Him to grant: glory be to Thee, O Lord! And try to thank Him for everything . . . I sometimes feel that eternity will be too short to praise God in, if it was only for making us live at all! And then not making us idiots or cripples, or even only ugly and stupid! What blessings we have! Let us work in return for them--not under the enslaving sense of paying off an infinite debt, but with the delight of gratitude, glorying that we are God's debtors.

- Letters. 1843.
Be not too hasty either with praise or blame; speak always as though you were giving evidence before the judgement-seat of the Gods.

- Seneca
I know, indeed, of nothing more subtle satisfying and cheering than a knowledge of the real good will and appreciation of others. Such happiness does not come with money, nor does it flow from a fine physical state. It cannot be bought. But it is the keenest joy, after all; and the toiler's truest and best reward.

- Howells, William Dean
So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence.

- Bertrand Russell
FOLLY, n. That "gift and faculty divine" whose creative and controlling energy inspires Man's mind, guides his actions and adorns his life. Folly! although Erasmus praised thee once In a thick volume, and all authors known, If not thy glory yet thy power have shown, Deign to take homage from thy son who hunts Through all thy maze his brothers, fool and dunce, To mend their lives and to sustain his own, However feebly be his arrows thrown, Howe'er each hide the flying weapons blunts. All-Father Folly! be it mine to raise, With lusty lung, here on his western strand With all thine offspring thronged from every land, Thyself inspiring me, the song of praise. And if too weak, I'll hire, to help me bawl, Dick Watson Gilder, gravest of us all. Aramis Loto Frope

- Ambrose Bierce
The simple act of playing positive attention to people has a great deal to do with productivity.

- Peters, Thomas J.
I'm a bit of a P. T. Barnum. I make stars out of everyone.

- Trump, Donald
Let America first praise mediocrity even, in her children, before she praises... the best excellence in the children of any other land.

- Melville, Herman
Why level downward to our dullest perception always, and praise that as common sense? The commonest sense is the sense of men asleep, which they express by snoring.

- Thoreau, Henry David
The test of any man's character is how he takes praise.

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
No matter how busy you are, you must take time to make the other person feel important.

- Ash, Mary Kay
God made man merely to hear some praise of what he'd done on those Five Days.

- Morley, Christopher
There can be no doubt that the average man blames much more than he praises. His instinct is to blame. If he is satisfied he says nothing; if he is not, he most illogically kicks up a row.

- Bennett, Arnold
Most of us, swimming against the tides of trouble the world knows nothing about, need only a bit of praise or encouragement -- and we will make the goal.

- Fleishman, Jerome P.
REVOLUTION, n. In politics, an abrupt change in the form of misgovernment. Specifically, in American history, the substitution of the rule of an Administration for that of a Ministry, whereby the welfare and happiness of the people were advanced a full half-inch. Revolutions are usually accompanied by a considerable effusion of blood, but are accounted worth it -- this appraisement being made by beneficiaries whose blood had not the mischance to be shed. The French revolution is of incalculable value to the Socialist of to-day; when he pulls the string actuating its bones its gestures are inexpressibly terrifying to gory tyrants suspected of fomenting law and order.

- Ambrose Bierce
Self-praise is for losers. Be a winner. Stand for something. Always have class, and be humble.

- Madden, John
I cannot praise a fugitive and cloistered virtue, unexercised and unbreathed, that never sallies out and sees her adversary, but slinks out of the race where that immortal garland is to be run for, not without dust and heat.

- Milton, John
I know of no manner of speaking so offensive as that of giving praise, and closing it with an exception.

- Steele, Sir Richard
