Praise quotes
Praise
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
The highest panegyric, therefore, that private virtue can receive, is the praise of servants.

- Johnson, Samuel
We are apt to love praise, but not deserve it. But if we would deserve it, we must love virtue more than that.

- Penn, William
The real satisfaction which praise can afford, is when what is repeated aloud agrees with the whispers of conscience, by showing us that we have not endeavored to deserve well in vain.

- Johnson
The test of any man's character is how he takes praise.

We are always more anxious to be distinguished for a talent which we do not possess, than to be praised for the fifteen which we do possess.

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

- Peters, Thomas J.
You do ill if you praise, but worse if you censure, what you do not understand.

- Leonardo da Vinci
SATIRE, n. An obsolete kind of literary composition in which the vices and follies of the author's enemies were expounded with imperfect tenderness. In this country satire never had more than a sickly and uncertain existence, for the soul of it is wit, wherein we are dolefully deficient, the humor that we mistake for it, like all humor, being tolerant and sympathetic. Moreover, although Americans are "endowed by their Creator" with abundant vice and folly, it is not generally known that these are reprehensible qualities, wherefore the satirist is popularly regarded as a soul-spirited knave, and his ever victim's outcry for codefendants evokes a national assent. Hail Satire! be thy praises ever sung In the dead language of a mummy's tongue, For thou thyself art dead, and damned as well -- Thy spirit (usefully employed) in Hell. Had it been such as consecrates the Bible Thou hadst not perished by the law of libel. Barney Stims

- Ambrose Bierce
To give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.

- Bible
To say, well done to any bit of good work is to take hold of the powers which have made the effort and strengthen them beyond our knowledge.

- Brooks, Phillips
There is no stimulus like that which comes from the consciousness of knowing that others believe in us.

- Marden, Orison Swett
Dollars! All their cares, hopes, joys, affections, virtues, and associations seemed to be melted down into dollars. Whatever the chance contributions that fell into the slow cauldron of their talk, they made the gruel thick and slab with dollars. Men were weighed by their dollars, measures were gauged by their dollars; life was auctioned, appraised, put up, and knocked down for its dollars. The next respectable thing to dollars was any venture having their attainment for its end. The more of that worthless ballast, honor and fair-dealing, which any man cast overboard from the ship of his Good Nature and Good Intent, the more ample stowage-room he had for dollars. Make commerce one huge lie and mighty theft. Deface the banner of the nation for an idle rag; pollute it star by star; and cut out stripe by stripe as from the arm of a degraded soldier. Do anything for dollars! What is a flag to them!

- Dickens, Charles
When life seems just a dreary grind; and things seem fated to annoy; say something nice to someone else and watch the world light up with joy.

Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A world of optimism and hope. A you can do it when things are tough.

- DeVos, Richard M.
Praise is not seemly in the mouth of a sinner, for it was not sent him of the Lord. [Ecclesiasticus 15:9]

- Bible
I can take any amount of criticism as long as I can consider it unqualified praise.

- Noel Coward
Great investment opportunities come around when excellent companies are surrounded by unusual circumstances that cause the stock to be misappraised.

- Buffett, Warren
People ask you for criticism, but they only want praise.

- W. Somerset Maugham
Few persons have sufficient wisdom to prefer censure, which is useful, to praise which deceives them.

- La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
