A Quote by Phyllis McGinley on children, compliments, gifts, life, and praise

Praise is warming and desirable . . . what the human race lives on like bread. But praise is an earned thing. It has to be deserved like an honorary degree or a hug from a child. A compliment is manna, a free gift.

Phyllis McGinley (1905 - 1978)
