An appreciation of prose is learned, not instinctive. It is an acquired taste, like Scotch whisky.
Abigail Padgett
Let me recommend that periodically you and I offer a prayer in which we only give thanks and express gratitude. Ask for nothing; simply let our souls rejoice and strive to communicate appreciation with all the energy of our hearts.
David A. Bednar
Give her not greatness. For great souls must stand Alone and lonely in this little world: Cleft rocks that show the great Creator’s hand, Thither by earthquakes hurled.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
A lot of Americans do not have an appreciation for our history. They do not understand the Constitution, why we have these norms. And at some point, yes, the media has some responsibility, but so does the public.
Charlie Sykes
LOVE of others is the appreciation of one’s self. MAY your egotism be so gigantic that you comprise mankind in your self-sympathy.
Mina Loy
Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education. The human mind is our fundamental resource.
John F. Kennedy
Bing was always hesitant to accept appreciation in any form.
Bob Crosby
As much as there are intellectual choices to be made and all the rest of it, a great actor has the ability really, to disappear and lose themself in a kind of mystical fashion. My appreciation and fascination with true acting is really all over the book, definitely.
Rebecca Miller
It’s really great to get your kids involved in the kitchen. Not only will they have an appreciation for food, but their palates will expand.
David Burtka
I believe that appreciation is a holy thing–that when we look for what’s best in a person we happen to be with at the moment, we’re doing what God does all the time. So in loving and appreciating our neighbor, we’re participating in something sacred.
Fred Rogers
Appreciation – Learn to give flowers while people are still living
Joel Osteen
No one among us suffers the radical appreciation for coffee that I do. It calls to me, but I have learned not to listen.
Ron Carlson
I do not believe that the present flowering of science is due in the least to a real appreciation of the beauty and intellectual discipline of the subject. It is due simply to the fact that power, wealth and prestige can only be obtained by the correct application of science.
Derek Barton
The chief value of money lies in the fact that one lives in a world in which it is overestimated.
H. L. Mencken
When you help people, don’t wait around to hear them say, “Thank you.” A lot of times we do good things, but in the back of our mind we’re hoping to get some appreciation. But if you make your intentions pure, and you expect only from Allah, He will take more care of you than you could ever imagine.
Nouman Ali Khan
Apple is a unique company in that the art and the science sit together very nicely. There’s an appreciation for both sides of the brain.
Bozoma Saint John
Donald Trump and I have very different views on Iranians. I am confident that if he ever visited the country, he’d learn a lot about the people and come back to the States with a newfound appreciation for the Persians.
Jordan Burroughs
It is better not to call anything to anybody – just remain centered in yourself. Look at the world and drop judgments, and you will have such a pure atmosphere around you – no appreciation, no condemnation, just a pure watchfulness. This watchfulness, I call meditation.
An “I know what I like” mentality is hard to shake, but of course appreciation has space for being challenged.
Ryan Gander
Our filmmakers need to be true to their culture to gain appreciation at international level. Though I don’t wish to generalize but do I feel that Indianness is lacking in most Indian films these days.
Rohini Hattangadi
Personal relationships are the fertile soil from which all advancement, all success, all achievement in real life grows.
Ben Stein
I have noticed that the Universe loves gratitude. The more grateful you are, the more goodies you get. When I say ‘goodies’, I don’t mean only material things. I mean all the people, places and experiences that make life so wonderfully worth living.
Louise Hay
I think the best way I can repay the supporters for their kindness towards me, and for all that love, support and appreciation, is to score goals and win trophies for them.
Radamel Falcao

Esther Hicks
I had a happy childhood in the suburbs of L.A. My parents instilled in us an appreciation of history, art and, most important, Motown. Jarron and I weren’t allowed to listen to rap until we were 12. After our birthday I dashed to Target and bought DJ Quik’s album ‘Quik Is the Name.’ I memorized every line.
Jason Collins
We should develop a deep appreciation for all the we have, and not waste it, otherwise we’ll die with deep regrets.
Tenzin Palmo
It’s very important that we do show appreciation for those who go to work in raising awareness. You know, Tourette Syndrome is not well known. There’s not a lot of government money and research in it. But people are dying inside every day because they’re suffering with it, and I think word needs to get out.
Dash Mihok
Nothing tires a man more than to be grateful all the time.
E. W. Howe
As you awaken to your divine nature, you’ll begin to appreciate beauty in everything you see, touch and experience.
Wayne Dyer
All you have to do [to win a Pulitzer Prize] is spend your life running from one awful place to another, write about every horrible thing you see. The civilized world reads about it, then forgets it, but pats you on the head for doing it and gives you a reward as appreciation for changing nothing.
David Baldacci
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
Douglas Adams
[Art] would have helped us survive in the Pleistocene – in the period, say, 1.6 million years ago until fairly recently. The kind of imaginative abilities that artists have and that we all have in the appreciation of art – to appreciate Jane Austen, the late quartets of Beethoven.
Denis Dutton
Let’s Face it, – Sinatra is a king. He’s a very sharp operator, a keen record chief, and has a keen appreciation of what the public wants.
Bing Crosby
The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.
Eric Hoffer
There is a lot of appreciation for Shahbaz Sharif.

Vikrant Massey
The world of scholarship is much more measured in its appreciation and also its criticism than the world of popular literature.
Deborah Harkness
The only basis on which to work for God is an esteemed appreciation of his deliverance.
Oswald Chambers
There is a serious defect in the thinking of someone who wants – more than anything else – to become rich. As long as they don’t have the money, it’ll seem like a worthwhile goal. Once they do, they’ll understand how important other things are – and have always been.
Anita Loos
Many of the artists who have represented Negro life have seen only the comic, the ludicrous side of it, and have lacked sympathy with and appreciation for the warm, big heart that dwells within such a rough exterior.
Henry Ossawa Tanner
All our moments are last moments. We abide in the forever leaving of our own coming? We can put our hands together, palm to palm, settling here on the last leaf of our brief flight, and bow to the wonder of it.
Jens Jensen
Failure and well-disguised cowardice are more human and more beloved.
Ernest Hemingway
It feels much better to me to think that an artist is working to show his appreciation of what already has been created than creating things himself.
E. J. Hughes
Those who matter don’t mind, and those who mind don’t matter.
Bernard Baruch
Real estate is still a great investment opportunity for households. Price appreciation will continue. It may not be at 20%. It may … even go down to 5%.
David Lereah
I have a musical ancestry as much as I have a family ancestry. Honoring those ancestors gives you access to a greater source of appreciation and information than you would have if you were just going on your own ego system.
Billy Corgan
Growing up, when we would get dragged to these events, I didn’t want to be there. Over time, as we got older, I developed a real appreciation of the importance of being involved in the democratic process.
Julian Castro
It had been startling and disappointing to me to find out that story books had been written by people, that books were not natural wonders, coming of themselves like grass.
Eudora Welty
My mom modeled and made clothes, so I always had such an appreciation for design.
Blake Lively
Many have left their families to defend our freedom. We salute their bravery; we express our appreciation and support to their families. And we pray for their safe return.
Bob Taft
And in today already walks tomorrow.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Whatever you think people are withholding from you-praise, appreciation, assistance, loving care, and so on-give it to them.
Eckhart Tolle
I’m a big kid. I never lost my childlike appreciation of things. Too many people lock it out and throw their toys away and say, okay, I’m gonna grow up and be grumpy and miserable and not think about the magical side of things anymore — and I can’t seem to stop doing that.
Andy Partridge
Greatness is never appreciated in youth, called pride in midlife, dismissed in old age, and reconsidered in death. Because we cannot tolerate greatness in our midst, we do all we can do destroy it.
J. Michael Straczynski
To me the sole hope of human salvation lies in teaching.
George Bernard Shaw
I would like to extend to you our deep appreciation and thanks for the position the United States has taken in support of the democratization process that has taken place in Tunisia, in Egypt, and what is attempting to take place in Libya.
Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani
Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing.
Rollo May
I don’t like to be in the forest. It’s a weird thing. I’ve learned to have a general appreciation for nature, which has taken a while. But the forest, I still don’t really love.
Joel Stein
I’m quite connected to Italy because of Italian Vogue shoots and the Pirelli calendar, so I have a love and appreciation for the culture.
Candice Huffine
I don’t think I’m very much like anyone else, really. I’m sure there are aspects of other actors that I share, but I don’t see anybody else and go, “Damn, they stole my thing.” I’m me, and I like that there are people who have an appreciation for that.
Zooey Deschanel
Appreciation is the breath of life to the creative artist, and in spite of modern conditions, there is enough abroad to sustain him. But his name is now legion; he competes with the dead as well as the living; and the rewards and honours seem attenuated by division.
Walter J. Phillips
The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.
Mark Van Doren
That’s really what keeps me playing live – appreciation. And I guess I’ve made a lot of wiggle room for myself to try different things and discover what I’m doing, and the audience accepts it.
Ariel Pink
Learning the art of expressing gratitude will force you to focus on the positive.
Jim Rohn
Wisdom and deep intelligence require an honest appreciation of mystery.
Thomas W. Moore
The ultimate goal of the educational system is to shift to the individual the burden of pursuing his education.

William Arthur Ward
When you focus on what you have, your ABUNDANCE increases. I started with my breath. Noticing being alive is a good start!
Oprah Winfrey
God smiles when we praise and thank Him continually. Few things feel better than receiving heartfelt praise and appreciation from someone else. God loves it, too. An amazing thing happens when we offer praise and thanksgiving to God. When we give God enjoyment, our own hearts are filled with joy.
William Law
Where ever the spirit of Christ is known, there is much of good will, of mutual respect, of love and appreciation and kindness.
Gordon B. Hinckley
It’s possible to have too much in life. Too many clothes jade our appreciation of new ones; too much money can out us out of touch with life; too much free time and dull the edge of the soul. We need sometimes to come very near the bone so tha we can taste the marrow of life, rather than its superfluities.
Joan D. Chittister
U.S. economic activity continues to expand, led by solid growth in household spending. But business investment remains soft, and subdued foreign demand and the appreciation of the dollar since mid-2014 continue to restrain exports.
Janet Yellen
When you grow up as the daughters of George and Laura Bush, you develop a special appreciation for how blessed we are to live in this great country.
Jenna Bush
To put it simply, people who are strangers to me will come up and say, ‘Are you that guy from that show?’ I’ll be like, ‘Yeah,’ and they’ll say, ‘Oh, nice job.’ And really, for the most part, it’s people showing appreciation for the work you’ve done.
Joe Keery
Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.

Gia Coppola
Reflect upon your present blessings
Charles Dickens
Gymnastics, for me, gave me a lot of self-pride: that drive to want to be great at something for myself. But it also gave me a sense of appreciation toward God. Now that I’m getting older, I really appreciate the talents God gave me. Not just physically, but mentally and emotionally.
Amanda Borden
Nine tenths of education is encouragement.
Anatole France
There are realities we all share, regardless of our nationality, language, or individual tastes. As we need food, so do we need emotional nourishment: love, kindness, appreciation, and support from others.

Michael Keaton

Ben Rhodes
No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.
James Allen
The greatest gift is a portion of thyself.

Chogyam Trungpa
We never had it so good: Every person alive today derives great benefit from comforts and pleasures that were not available in the past. All of the latest technological advances serve us to a remarkable degree. For all this we should be full of appreciation and gratitude.
Zelig Pliskin
We become wiser by adversity; prosperity destroys our appreciation of the right.” “True happiness is … to enjoy the present” “It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.
Seneca the Younger
All charming people have something to conceal, usually their total dependence on the appreciation of others.

Wayne Dyer
Who dares to teach must never cease to learn.
John Cotton Dana

Your best champion and cheerleader is yourself. Always be proud of your accomplishments, big or small.
Ayanna Howard
There will always be some films that the audience would like and some that they don’t. But if I start becoming a slave to appreciation, I will be subjecting myself and my talent to one particular type of taste. I don’t want to do that.
Ekta Kapoor
Most pointedly, nature-based people manifest the very qualities that contemporary psychotherapy, the recovery movement, and spiritual practices continually aim for: a visible sense of inner peace, unselfconscious humility, an urge to communal cooperation, and heartfelt appreciation for the world around them.
Chellis Glendinning
We nourish the bodies of our children and friends and employees, but how seldom do we nourish their selfesteem? We provide them with roast beef and potatoes to build energy, but we neglect to give them kind words of appreciation that would sing in their memories for years like the music of the morning stars.
Dale Carnegie
To dispense with ceremony is the most delicate mode of conferring a compliment.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Shania Twain
It is enough that I am of value to somebody today.
Hugh Prather
I think I was given a gift to wrestle. And I think when I came back, I had a much better appreciation of that. And I believe the way I went about doing it made me better at it. I didn’t identify myself with the job as I did so much in the ’90s. In the ’90s, I didn’t know who I was other than ‘the wrestler.’
Shawn Michaels
I always had a great appreciation for jazz, but I’m a very pedestrian musician. I get by. I like to think that my main instrument is vocabulary.
Tom Waits

Deepak Chopra

Khaled Hosseini
Gratitude is the most exquisite form of courtesy.
Jacques Maritain
There’s nothing in the actual Bible that limits a Christian in their appreciation of or interest in science. Anti-science is purely a function of ignorant fundamentalism.
If you want to change your life in the fastest way possible, trade your expectations of others for appreciation.
Tony Robbins
Our expectation of the gratitude of others for what we’ve done for them is sometimes exaggerated because of our deep desire for appreciation and approval. When our good work or good deeds go unrewarded by hoped for praise, we feel like failures so we treat those who denied us our due as betrayers.
Michael Josephson
Thou who hast given so much to me, give me one more thing… a grateful heart!
George Herbert

J.R. Miller

Alex Green
The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter.
Paulo Coelho
When I was 18, I took it for granted and was eager to move on to the bigger cities like Boston and then New York. But I’ve been to enough places to have gained a greater appreciation for the beauty and rich culture of all of Rhode Island. I am grateful for all that it offered during my childhood.
Joanna Going
Great communicators have an appreciation for positioning. They understand the people they’re trying to reach and what they can and can’t hear. They send their message in through an open door rather than trying to push it through a wall.
John P. Kotter
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.
William Butler Yeats
I have an appreciation for Isco. I know him from when we were at Valencia together and I know that he has a lot of quality.
Jordi Alba
War makes men barbarous because, to take part in it, one must harden oneself against all regret, all appreciation of delicacy and sensitive values. One must live as if those values did not exist, and when the war is over one has lost the resilience to return to those values.
Cesare Pavese
My appreciation for cooking and healthy living came from watching my best friend die from liver cancer in 2008. I realized that I needed to make some big changes if I wanted to be around for a long time, so now I’m more cautious of how much I eat, what I’m eating, and how often.
Sara Ramirez
The thing I crave for the most is appreciation for my acting.
Sidharth Malhotra
It is a matter of the simplest demonstration, that no man can be really appreciated but by his equal or superior.

Kyle MacLachlan
We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.
Friedrich Koenig
An artist must be open to both appreciation and criticism. It’s a part of the learning process, or else there is no growth.

Anne Geddes
Have a dialogue between the two opposing parts and you will find that they always start out fighting each other until we come to an appreciation of difference.
Frederick Salomon Perls

Pam Brown
I would love to be able to share my artwork with as many people as possible so that I can help spread an appreciation for art in general.

Duane Elgin
Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.
John Wooden

A.J. Cronin
The lead initiative of my foundation is clean water, but not far behind it is military appreciation.
Chris Long
I am of the opinion that the appreciation and the desire for what is good takes more study and insight than does the understanding and test for the best music and art.
Laurance Rockefeller
I had no idea how much music and singing really means to people, and in my own tiny way to be a part of that is very humbling and very sweet, and and I feel very honored. … I have a great appreciation for this, in every ways and a new understanding, and I’m just as amazed as anyone else.
Ysabella Brave
I can work hard and be disciplined like a soldier, but I could never reach their level of fitness. I have a whole new appreciation of soldiers. I saw myself on screen and thought, ‘That body is so not hard enough to be a soldier.’
Richard Armitage
I’m not an impressionist, per se, but if you do any kind of comedy – and they ask you to do that, most of the time – there’s some degree of appreciation, I think, involving somebody you like.
Alec Baldwin
It is a sadness of growing older that some of us lose our ardent appreciation of what is new and different and difficult.
Elizabeth Aston

John Burnside
If you have done the best you can do and if you have gotten all you could extract from something, you have given all you had to give, then the time has come when you can do no more than say thank you and move on.
Maya Angelou
The representative element in a work of art may or may not be harmful, but it is always irrelevant. For to appreciate a work of art, we must bring with us nothing from life, no knowledge of its affairs and ideas, no familiarity with its emotions.
Clive Bell
I am so glad you are here. It helps me realize how beautiful my world is.
Rainer Maria Rilke

… because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.

Zilpha Keatley Snyder
Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.
Mae West
Here’s the gift of gratitude: In order to feel it, your ego has to take a backseat. What shows up in its place is greater compassion and understanding. Instead of being frustrated, you choose appreciation. And the more grateful you become, the more you have to be grateful for.
Oprah Winfrey
The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.
Carl Rogers

Andre Maurois
I have an appreciation for everywhere I’ve been so far.
To appreciate nonsense requires a serious interest in life.
Gelett Burgess
Clint Eastwood expects you to know what you’re doing. He’s going to take two giant steps back and let you do it. I have such appreciation for that part of him.
Matt Damon
I had gained a greater appreciation of hearing the concerns of woman, doctors, and so many others.
Jesse Jackson
The Five A’s (attention, appreciation, acceptance, affection, allowing) are simultaneously the fulfillment of our earliest needs, the requirements of adult intimacy and of universal compassion, and the essential qualities of mindfulness practice.
David Richo
The value of three things is justly appreciated by all classes of men: youth, by the old; health, by the diseased; and wealth, by the needy.
Omar Khayyam
Whiskey, like a beautiful woman, demands appreciation. You gaze first, then it’s time to drink.
Haruki Murakami
Men are often miserable in relationships because they feel their partner takes them for granted, or shows him no appreciation for the things he gets right.
Matthew Hussey
Some like to think that a keen appreciation of art can actually make us better people – more just, more moral, more sensitive, more understanding. Perhaps that is true – in certain rare, isolated cases.
Paul Auster
You have nothing. One should never allow themselves to think that they have, one can just touch – to have is to lack appreciation, to touch is to want to touch again.
Robert Plant
It’s an appreciation for life generally, every bit of life, the smallest creature that lives in the intestines of termites that make termite life possible – to the leaves that turn out oxygen and grab carbon dioxide and with water make simple sugars that feed much of the world. I mean, these are everyday miracles.
Sylvia Earle

Sarah Caldwell
It’s possible to make sense of what’s morally at stake in an appreciation of the gift of life, or the gift of a child, without necessarily presupposing that there is a giver. What matters is that the gift – in this case, the child – not be wholly our own doing, our own product.
Michael Sandel
Men prize the thing ungained more than it is.
William Shakespeare

It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
Albert Einstein
When I first started making music, I was all about wordplay and how fast I could rap, but over the years, I’ve really gained an appreciation for melody.

K. Flay
To hear the appreciation, the screams – that’s what any of us need. We’re at our best when we’re wanted.

Working on ‘Newsroom’ has given me an appreciation of the struggle that you go through on the 24-hour news cycle. The people who are legitimately attempting to deliver honest news are really facing a tough, uphill climb that’s a lot harder than any other time in history.

Frederick Lenz
Eating well is a lifelong priority. My appreciation for cooking and healthy living came from watching my best friend die from liver cancer in 2008.

Sara Ramirez
The most important thing for me is appreciation from the viewers and the love which I get from them. This helps me to work passionately on my projects.
Sanjeeda Sheikh
It is in dialogue with pain that many beautiful things acquire their value. Acquaintance with grief turns out to be one of the more unusual prerequisites of architectural appreciation. We might, quite aside from all other requirements, need to be a little sad before buildings can properly touch us.
Alain de Botton
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.
Anton Chekhov
There is no scorn more profound, or on the whole more justifiable, than that of the men who make for the men who explain. Exposition, criticism, appreciation, is work for second-rate minds.

There might be a class of beings, human once, but now to humanity invisible, for whose scrutiny, and for whose refined appreciation of the beautiful, more especially than for our own, had been set in order by God the great landscape-garden of the whole earth.
Edgar Allan Poe
Never take anything for granted.

Craig Kelly
Appreciation is the highest form of prayer, for it acknowledges the presence of good wherever you shine the light of your thankful thoughts.
Alan Cohen
Young women today often have very little appreciation for the real battles that took place to get women where they are today in this country. I don’t know how much history young women today know about those battles.

The thing about Sondheim is that it does get very cerebral. You do need a faculty with words and a love for the lyrics to not just pull it off, but to have an appreciation for it.
Lea Salonga
There is something I think we share, which is, of course, an appreciation for Helmut Lang. I think at a certain point he really changed so many things in fashion. I’m a bit younger than Helmut, but from my point of view he provided a true entrance into this new way of thinking – not being invaded into couture.
Nicolas Ghesquiere
I always got appreciation for the columns I wrote for newspapers.

Ernest Hemingway
A wild appreciation of men and women . . . who passionately and fearlessly and recklessly redefine romance. . . . The passionate creatures who refuse to play it safe and settle down now have an intelligent, like-minded advocate.
Jessa Crispin
What we need today are not more laws to govern believers. What we need is a greater revelation and appreciation of Jesus and everything that He has done for us!

Deepak Chopra
There are two things people want more than sex and money – recognition and praise.

Alex Faickney Osborn
I have done my best. That is about all the philosophy of living one needs.
Lin Yutang
My family, my mom in particular, got so much love and appreciation from the audience. As a consequence, I have also got some of that love. I now have to work doubly hard to prove that I deserve it, on my own, also.

I have an eight-year-old girl and she does have some appreciation for fashion, but she’s stuck in that: “Oh my God, this is cute” phase, so when I go shopping with her and my wife, I can only last about 10 minutes before I have to start exploring other parts of the store.

Arthur C. Clarke

CeeLo Green
If the room is friendly to a relationship between lecturer and audience, you feel everything – the tension, the appreciation. I think the audience feels it too.

William Gibson

It is evidence of a lack of commitment to securing our borders and a lack of appreciation for the proper role of the states in supporting federal law enforcement priorities.
Asa Hutchinson
The eye which can appreciate the naked and absolute beauty of a scientific truth is far more rare than that which is attracted by a moral one.

Margaret Fuller
Just a thank you is a mighty powerful prayer. Says it all.

Scott Bedbury
(Some people) have a wonderful capacity to appreciate again and again, freshly and naively, the basic goods of life, with awe, pleasure, wonder, and even ecstasy.
Abraham Maslow
There are no actions involved in ‘beautiful.’ It’s such an inactive thing, and it’s so subject to each individual’s taste and appreciation. It’s a lovely word, but I feel like it’s been hijacked by really boring, dull people who don’t understand how to use words.
Ruth Negga
Treat everyone on the organization with respect and dignity whether it be the janitor or the president.

It’s still National Library Week. You should be especially nice to a librarian today, or tomorrow. Sometime this week, anyway. Probably the librarians would like tea. Or chocolates. Or a reliable source of funding.
Neil Gaiman

Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
People who have passion for horror stories, their appreciation/my appreciation is looking at it as opera.

The world is always a new plaything to children, while to the old it seems falling to pieces from sheer dryness. Everything loses its value with time, but it is not the fault of the fruit, but of the mouth and the tongue.
Kate Douglas Wiggin
In prison, I fell in love with my country. I had loved her before then, but like most young people, my affection was little more than a simple appreciation for the comforts and privileges most Americans enjoyed and took for granted. It wasn’t until I had lost America for a time that I realized how much I loved her.
John McCain
The theater was my first training ground. It taught me discipline, dedication and appreciation of hard work.
Ben Vereen
Appreciation of works of art requires organized effort and systematic study. Art appreciation can no more be absorbed by aimless wandering in galleries than can surgery be learned by casual visits to a hospital.
Albert C. Barnes
I never spend more than one hour in a gallery. That is as long as one’s power of appreciation persists.

Gail Kim
As I’ve grown as a creator, I feel that I want to tread in deeper waters and have a lot more going on emotionally with the characters. That’s my appreciation for comics as a creator and a consumer as well. I’m more into stories that don’t just bounce off the surface but go a little bit deeper.

Correction does much, but encouragement does more. Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Nadia Comaneci
That which we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly.
Thomas Paine
The BEST representation of Source Energy that you will ever find in your physical format is inexpressible. It’s that feeling of love and appreciation that just WELLS up within you, that is so sensational that you can hardly find words for it. That’s the true ESSENCE of who you are.
Esther Hicks
After 25-plus years as a lawyer, prosecutor, and defense attorney, I have developed a deep appreciation for both the wisdom of the law and the role that jurists play in framing the rights and responsibilities that define our society.
Eliot Spitzer
Appreciation of life itself, becoming suddenly aware of the miracle of being alive, on this planet, can turn what we call ordinary life into a miracle. We come awake to such a realization when we recognize our connection to a spiritual dimension.
Dan Wakefield

Robert Louis Stevenson
A change in language can transform our appreciation of the cosmos.
Benjamin Lee Whorf
To require conformity in the appreciation of sentiments or the interpretation of language, or uniformity of thought, feeling, or action, is a fundamental error in human legislation — a madness which would be only equaled by requiring all men to possess the same countenance, the same voice or the same stature.
Josiah Warren
Most of us, swimming against the tides of trouble the world knows nothing about, need only a bit of praise or encouragement – and we will make the goal.

John McCain
Not only have I made films about the subject, but I’ve largely funded them on my own, so I’m fully committed to doing whatever I can to change the audience’s respect and appreciation for the ocean. In 100 years I want whales, dolphins and sharks to still be around, and the ocean to be a healthier place.
Greg MacGillivray
Appreciation and gratitude are a must if you choose to become the architect of increased happiness and your own fulfillment.

Chiaki Kuriyama

Paul Bocuse
Always remember, everyone is hungry for praise and starving for honest appreciation.
David Berg

to breathe the wild warm air of the heath,
And to let in Love, and to let out Hate,
And anger at living and scorn of Fate,
To let in Life, and to let out Death.
Violet Fane
Wealth can also be that attitude of gratitude with which we remind ourselves everyday to count our blessings.
Chris Gardner
I have found a much greater appreciation of Buddhism because I couldn’t take it for granted here in exile.
Dalai Lama
With grace and a keen appreciation of human nature, Nicholas Thompson has written a revealing, moving history of the Cold War through two fascinating men.
Evan Thomas
Mass appreciation doesn’t always equate to something good.
Jamie Dornan
God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say ‘thank you?’
William Arthur Ward
Actually, bizarrely, in America, I get more appreciation from the odd, unusual stuff I’ve done, almost because I’m not, if you like, famous in America as I am in England.
Steve Coogan
Who I am is the best I can be.
Leontyne Price
I think what I brought from the private sector was a real appreciation of how much leverage – respect, if you will – that the SEC has. Major companies, in particular, really don’t want to be at war with their primary regulator. The SEC may not have appreciated just how great our leverage is.
Mary Jo White
I admire Kings of Leon. I think their records are amazing. Just from hanging out with them, I can say they’re good guys. It’s cool to see that they get to do what they love. But I think they clearly have an appreciation for where they came from, and it has shaped who they are.
Nick Jonas
The pleasure derived from viewing the achievements of others, coupled with a true appreciation of nature, sharpens the desire to express pictorially.
Edgar Alwin Payne
My values are primarily motivated by love for other people. I value the non-human world in large part because it’s so vital to human beings. Even my appreciation for wilderness grows out of an understanding of how important wilderness can be for people.
Tim DeChristopher
Our best hope for the future is not to get people to think of all humanity as family – that’s impossible. It lies, instead, in an appreciation of the fact that, even if we don’t empathize with distant strangers, their lives have the same value as the lives of those we love.
Paul Bloom
When you live your life with an appreciation of coincidences and their meanings, you connect with the underlying field of infinite possibilities.
Deepak Chopra
Everybody has their own style. I’m very particular in what I like, and I try to keep it that way. I always have big appreciation for other people’s styles, and I love seeing how other people dress themselves through their own influences.
Divock Origi
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca the Younger
I showed my appreciation of my native land in the usual Irish way: by getting out of it as soon as I possibly could.
George Bernard Shaw
Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence.
Og Mandino
You must be prepared to work always without applause.
Ernest Hemingway
If we are to prevent the fabric of our society from coming apart, we must
teach our children to excel not only academically, but also in their
appreciation of their obligation to others.
Clarence Page
A boy who gets a C- in ‘Appreciation of Television’ can’t be all bad.
Robert A. Heinlein
No one is more cherished in this world than someone who lightens the burden of another. Thank you.
Joseph Addison
One appreciates that daily life is really good when one wakes from a horrible dream, or when one takes the first outing after a sickness. Why not realize it now?
William Lyon Phelps
I have an appreciation for what some people would call “bad acting,” but which I think can be much more real than the overly emotive, technical and supposedly “realistic” acting that is so prevalent in mainstream cinema.
Bruce LaBruce
When I was playing before I retired, I never really understood the appreciation and the respect that people gave me. People had treated me like a god or something, and that was very embarrassing.
Michael Jordan
