The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated.
      - William James

No good writer was ever long neglected; no great man overlooked by men equally great. Impatience is a proof of inferior strength, and a destroyer of what little there may be.
      - Walter Savage Landor

It is with certain good qualities as with the senses; those who are entirely deprived of them can neither appreciate nor comprehend them.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

To praise great actions with sincerity may be said to be taking part in them.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

It is only by loving a thing that you an make it yours.
      - George MacDonald

We commend a horse for his strength, and sureness of foot, and not for his rich caparisons; a greyhound for his share of heels, not for his fine collar; a hawk for her wing, not for her jesses and bells. Why, in like manner, do we not value a man for what is properly his own? He has a great train, a beautiful palace, so much credit, so many thousand pounds a year, and all these are about him, but not in him.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

Whatever the benefits of fortune are, they yet require a palate fit to relish and taste them; it is fruition, and not possession, that renders us happy.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

Appreciate the moment.
      - Isamu Noguchi

The more enlarged is our own mind, the greater number we discover of men of originality. Your commonplace people see no difference between one man and another.
      - Blaise Pascal

You think much too well of me as a man. No author can be as moral as his works, as no preacher is as pious as his sermons.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

It is a matter of the simplest demonstration, that no man can be really appreciated but by his equal or superior.
      - John Ruskin

We must never undervalue any person. The workman loves not that his work should be despised in his presence. Now God is present everywhere, and every person is His work.
      - Saint Francis de Sales

Let us learn to appreciate there will be times when the trees will be bare, and look forward to the time when we may pick the fruit.
      - Peter Sellers

Men prize the thing ungained more than it is.
      - William Shakespeare

Men are seldom underrated; the mercury in a man finds its true level in the eyes of the world just as certainly as it does in the glass of a thermometer.
      - Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)

To feel, to feel exquisitely, is the lot of very many; it is the charm that lends a superstitious joy to fear. But to appreciate belongs to the few; to one or two alone, here and there, the blended passion and understanding that constitute in its essence worship.
      - Elizabeth Sara Sheppard

Give tribute, but not oblation, to human wisdom.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

To love her [Lady Elizabeth Hastings] was a liberal education.
      - Sir Richard Steele,
        Of Lady Elizabeth Hastings,
        in "The Tatler", no. 49

It is common, to esteem most what is most unknown.
      - Tacitus (Caius Cornelius Tacitus)

I do not know at first what it is that harms me. The men and things of to-day are wont to be fairer and truer in to-morrow's memory.
      - Henry David Thoreau

By appreciation we make excellence in others our own property.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

No man ever thought too highly of his nature or too meanly of himself.
      - Edward Young
