Famous quotes containing the word commendation:

    Our actions seem to have their lucky and unlucky stars, to which a great part of that blame and that commendation is due which is given to the actions themselves.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    A continual feast of commendation is only to be obtained by merit or by wealth: many are therefore obliged to content themselves with single morsels, and recompense the infrequency of their enjoyment by excess and riot, whenever fortune sets the banquet before them.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
