Praise quotes

Marcus Tullius Cicero
We are motivated by a keen desire for praise, and the better a man is the more he is inspired by glory. The very philosophers themselves, even in those books which they write in contempt of glory, inscribe their names.

Edward Young
The love of praise, howe'er conceal'd by art,Reigns more or less, and glows in ev'ry heart.

Marcus Aurelius
Anything in any way beautiful derives its beauty from itself and asks nothing beyond itself. Praise is no part of it, for nothing is made worse or better by praise.

Owen Felltham
There is no belittling worse than to over praise a man.

Rudyard Kipling
Never praise a sister to a sister in the hope of your compliments reaching he proper ears.

Charles Horton Cooley
By recognizing a favorable opinion of yourself, and taking pleasure in it, you in a measure give yourself and your peace of mind into the keeping of another, of whose attitude you can never be certain. You have a new source of doubt and apprehension.

Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
To receive applause for works which do not demand all our powers hinders our advance towards a perfecting of our spirit. It usually means that thereafter we stand still.

Mary Kay Ash
There are two things people want more than sex and money... recognition and praise.
