Mark Twain quotes

Praise is well, compliment is well, but affection-that is the last and most precious reward that any man can win, whether by character or achievement.
Talking about praise, compliment and affection he received in letters during his visit to England to receive a Doctor's degree at Oxford University in a speech he gave at a luncheon in his honor (1907).
