I'm reading The Nine Modern Day Muses (and a Bodyguard) by Jill Badonsky and came across this quote.
'Flatter me, and I may not believe you.
Criticize me, and I may not like you.
Ignore me, and I may not forgive you.
Encourage me, and I may not forget you.'
William Arthur, Author
I think there could be more encouragement in this world. It's so easy to criticize, discourage and pour out negative feelings, but a little bit of encouragement goes a long way... often further than we can ever imagine...
