      - John Ruskin

Admiration and familiarity strangers.
      - George Sand (pseudonym of Mme. Armandine Lucile Dupon Dudevant)

    In her pavilion, cloth-of-gold of tissue,
      O'erpicturing that Venus where we see
        The fancy outwork nature.
      - William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra
         (Enobarbus at II, ii)

Season your admiration for a while
  With an attent ear. . . .
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Horatio at I, ii)

Admiration is a youthful fancy will which scarcely ever survives to mature years.
      - Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)

Amid the most mercenary ages it is but a secondary sort of admiration that is bestowed upon magnificence.
      - William Shenstone

The love of admiration leads to fraud, much more than the love of commendation; but, on the other hand, the latter is much more likely to spoil our: good actions by the substitution of an inferior motive.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately
