His worst is better than any other person’s best.
A compliment is like a kiss through a veil.
His vocal cords were kissed by God.
Some folks pay a compliment like they went down in their pocket for it.
Some people pay a compliment as if they expected a receipt.
Most people are such fools that it is really no great compliment to say that a man is above the average.
W. Somerset Maugham
It is great to get praise from the lips of taciturnity.
John Addington Symonds
Incredibly, inordinately, devastatingly, immortally, calamitously, hearteningly, adorably beautiful.
