Praise Quotes

History is the story of events, with praise or blame.

Cotton Mather

Neither blame or praise yourself.

It is impossible that this gnosis resulting in the heart should be achieved by man for any other purpose than to obey God, love Him, and worship Him. This gnosis should be sought for the sake of God, not for any other reason whatsoever, unlike the remaining external acts of devotion, which can be performed for other worldly interests, such as hypocrisy, praise, and commendation.

Andre Maurois

in my opinion, i believe greatness is measured in ones qualitative contribution on his/her fellow humane, it is more than "knowing what do do", "being able to do", or "charisma". because your praise can only be sang by the people you have help and affected.If therefore your praise must be heard atop the ladder of greatness, you then must help someone climb there, to sing your praise.

Fools may our scorn, not envy, raise. For envy is a kind of praise.
