You can't really praise somebody's work and then criticize the process.
That is very high praise, which is given you by faithful witness.
Let praise be given equally to women as well as men who have been distinguished in virtue.
Not every love, but only that which has a noble purpose, is noble and worthy of praise.
One thing for certain you will not ever hear from me is praise for dictators and strongmen who have no love for America.
Juan Manuel, Prince of Villena
He, who praises you for what you have not, wishes to take from you what you have.
