Praise out of season, or tactlessly bestowed, can freeze the heart as much as blame.

Pearl S. Buck

He who praises everybody, praises nobody.

Samuel Johnson

Praise, like gold and diamonds, owes its value only to its scarcity.

Samuel Johnson

There is no praise to bear the sort that you put in your pocket.


True praise comes often even to the lowly; false praise only to the strong.


I will praise any man that will praise me.

William Shakespeare

Among the smaller duties of life I hardly know any one more important than that of not praising where praise is not due.

Sydney Smith
