A-Z - encouragement

something we can all use more of.

Praise is like sunlight to the human spirit: we cannot flower and grow without it. ~Jess Lair

One word or a pleasing smile is often enough to raise up a saddened and wounded soul. ~Therese of Lisieux

There is nothing better than the encouragement of a good friend. ~Katharine Butler Hathaway

Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do. ~Benjamin Spock

A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success. ~Unknown
