Compliment Quotes {Monday Listicles}

October 7, 2012

It’s Monday.

The beginning of another week.

And the only thing I like about Mondays is joining Stasha and making a list for her.

Today’s all about compliments.

I wasn’t sure which way to go with this one.

I don’t take compliments easily and never quite know what to say other than “Thank you.”

As I was browsing around the interwebs I got an idea.

Why not combine my love for lists and quotes and give you a list of 10 compliment quotes.

1) We are prepared for insults, but compliments leave us baffled. ~ Mason Cooley

2) Flattery…. gets its kicks by flirting with insult and ridicule. ~ Willis Goth Regier

3) Pay with compliments and you will always be wealthy. ~ Mike Dolan

4) I can live for two months on a good compliment.  ~Mark Twain

5) What flatterers say, try to make true.  ~German Proverb

6) There is no effect more disproportionate to its cause than the happiness bestowed by a small compliment.  ~Robert Brault

7) Do not offer a compliment and ask a favor at the same time. A compliment that is charged for is not valuable. ~ Mark Twain

8) Nothing makes people so worthy of compliments as receiving them. One is more delightful for being told one is delightful — just as one is more angry for being told one is angry. ~ Katherine F. Gerould

9) It is great to get praise from the lips of taciturnity.  ~John Addington Symonds

10) Modesty is the only sure bait when you angle for praise.  ~Lord Chesterfield
