I never criticize anyone. The way to develop the best that is in a person is by appreciation and encouragement.
Brains are like hearts – they go where they are appreciated.
Appreciation is the lubricant of life.
Appreciate me now, and avoid the rush.
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.
Appreciative words are the most powerful force for good on earth.
Nine-tenths of wisdom is appreciation. Go find somebody’s hand and squeeze it, while there’s time.
Appreciation, whether of nature, or books, or art, or men, depends very much on temperament. What is beauty or genius or greatness to one, is far from being so to another.
No story is the same to us after a lapse of time; or rather we who read it are no longer the same interpreters.
He who has acquired the ability, may wait securely the occasion of making it felt and appreciated, and know that it will not loiter.
