Admiration Quotes

Romantic love reaches out in little ways, showing attention and admiration, Romantic love remembers what pleases a woman, what excites her, and what surprises her. Its actions whisper: you are the most special person in my life.

Charles Stanley

The last day of the old year was one of those bright, cold, dazzling winter days, which bombard us with their brilliancy, and command our admiration but never our love.

Lucy Maud Montgomery

Maybe you are the cool generation If coolness means a capacity to stay calm and use your head in the service of ends passionately believed in, then it has my admiration.

Admiration is a very short-lived passion, that immediately decays upon growing familiar with its object.

Joseph Addison

Ignorance is the mother of admiration

George Chapman

A mixture of admiration and pity is one of the surest recipes for affection.

Andre Maurois

Van Gogh was right in saying that the method he had chosen could be compared to that of caricature. Caricature had always been "expressionist," for the caricaturist plays with the likeness of his victim, and distorts it to express just what he feels about his fellow man. As long as these distortions of nature sailed under the flag of humour nobody seemed to find them difficult to understand. Humourous art was a field in which everything was permitted, because people did not approach it with the prejudices they reserved for Art with a capital A. But the idea of a serious caricature, of an art which deliberately changed the appearance of things not to express a sense of superiority, but maybe love, or admiration, or fear, proved indeed a stumbling block as Van Gogh had predicted.

E.H. Gombrich

The quality of wit inspires more admiration than confidence

George Santayana

Our admiration of fine writing will always be in proportion to its real difficulty and its apparent ease.

Charles Caleb Colton

There is an innocence in admiration; it is found in those to whom it has never yet occurred that they, too, might be admired some day.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Admiration for a quality or an art can be so strong that it deters us from striving to possess it.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Admiration is a curiosity.

Greg Evans

The youth, intoxicated with his admiration of a hero, fails to see, that it is only a projection of his own soul, which he admires

The drama is not a mere copy of nature, not a facsimile. It is the free running hand of genius, under the impression of its liveliest wit or most passionate impulses, a thousand times adorning or feeling all as it goes; and you must read it, as the healthy instinct of audiences almost always does, if the critics will let them alone, with a grain of allowance, and a tendency to go away with as much of it for use as is necessary, and the rest for the luxury of laughter, pity, or poetical admiration.

Leigh Hunt

Our admiration is so given to dead martyrs that we have little time for living heroes.
