“I can live for two months on a good compliment.”

Praise is warming and desirable.
But it is an earned thing.
It has to be deserved, like a hug from a child.
~ Phyllis McGinley ~

The praise that comes from love
does not make us vain, but more humble.
~ James M. Barrie ~

Being taken for granted can be a compliment.
It means that you’ve become a comfortable,
trusted element in another person’s life.
~ Joyce Brothers ~


  1. Great quotes, and I love your tulips with the pretty beveled glass frame. I've also been meaning to tell you how adorable your purple polka dot background is!

  2. Thanks Ginny. The tulips photo was edited and framed multple times. The round frame is from Paint Shop Pro, then cropped again and framed twice as "collage" in Picasa using the same image as frame.

  3. i love a good compliment and can feel uplifted by them, just like the first quote. but the second one is true also. i do not like a compliment if it is not deserved, as in a fake one just to be nice. compliments do need to be real. great job on the tulips and that is a true compliment.

  4. I always look forward to reading your Blog you're always so upbeat.

  5. Particularly like the last one there, that would always be my attitude, I love feeling that comfortable with people, though they are few and far between.
    Happy new blog, have come over to join you here
    much love

  6. I love these quotes. Thanks for sharing them.
