Modesty is the only sure bait when you angle for praise.
I hate careless flattery, the kind that exhausts you in your effort to believe it.
Women are never disarmed by compliments; men always are.
Some folks pay a compliment like they went down in their pocket for it.
Nothing is so silly as the expression of a man who is being complimented.
It is hard to resist a flatterer who gets it right.
There is no effect more disproportionate to its cause than the happiness bestowed by a small compliment.
