“Anything in any way beautiful derives its beauty from itself and asks nothing beyond itself. Praise is no part of it, for nothing is made worse or better by praise.”
“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”
“So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.”
“The only thing that ever consoles man for the stupid things he does is the praise he always gives himself for doing them.”
“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Praise or blame has but a momentary effect on the man whose love of beauty in the abstract makes him a severe critic on his own works.”
“Whatever is in any way beautiful hath its source of beauty in itself, and is complete in itself; praise forms no part of it. So it is none the worse nor the better for being praised.”
