I’d rather take coffee than compliments just now.
An acquaintance that begins with a compliment is sure to develop into a real friendship.
I don’t like compliments, and I don’t see why a man should think he is pleasing a woman enormously when he says to her a whole heap of things that he doesn’t mean.
Women are never disarmed by compliments. Men always are. That is the difference between the sexes.
The only really decent thing to do behind a person’s back is pat it.
A pat on the back is only a few inches from a kick in the pants.
One “oh shit” can erase a thousand attaboys. (“Dilbert”)
If you can’t get a compliment any other way, pay yourself one.
Being taken for granted can be a compliment. It means that you’ve become a comfortable, trusted element in another persons life.
Of a compliment only a third is meant.
