It's always worth taking the trouble to praise people.
-- My fortune cookie, today

Any flattering remark, if repeated too often, will always wear thin in the end and become as wounding as any insult.
-- Jose Saramago, born this day in 1922

Apprenez que tout flatteur vit aux de'pens de celui qui l'e'coute.
-- Jean de la Fontaine (1621-1695)

Between flattery and admiration there often flows a river of contempt.
--Minna Antrim (1861-1950)

--Dr Joyce Brothers

Most people are much more able to take criticism to heart than to hear words of support or appreciation. It's a good rule to offer ten instances of the latter for every one of the former that you utter. -- Harville Hendrix

Some of us are surrounded by destructive people who tell us we're worthless when we're endlessly valuable, that we're stupid when we're smart, that we're failing even when we succeed.

It's equals who are generous but keep you accountable, true mirrors who reflect back who you are and what you are doing. - Rebecca Solnit
