Appreciation Quotes
(30+ quotes)

Appreciation quotes focus on our human need for positive recognition. Who doesn't like to be applauded and appreciated? Think about the last time someone gave you a sincere compliment.

We all know the impact of giving and receiving positive recognition. Clap. Show appreciation to those around you who help you in big and small ways.  And always make sure you pay attention to cravings for approval from others which may crop up now and then.  Your own satisfaction should count most. Ultimately you have no control over the approval or disapproval of others. Your first duty in life is to appreciate what you bring to the table and stay true to appreciating the blessings you bring to this world.
