If we did not flatter ourselves, the flattery of others could never harm us.

You are so tempting!!

You are also temptingly tall in the picture.

I wish I could say that flattery of others could never harm us but I think it is obvious it does.

Temptation, is such a hard thing to resist. So don't tempt me!!

God bless.

I read and reread the opening quote, and still don't understand how others flattery can hurt us....Sometimes others mean to manipulate us with this flattery, so I guess in that sense it can be harmful...Did I figure it out?!

Hello.
Interesting & intriguing quote. The silhouette is pretty tall too. Thanks for sharing.

Mrsupole, a rush job yesterday. My apologies.

Brian, I get a lot of these.

Joanne, flattery is far more dangerous than criticism. It makes people lazy.

Andy, hello!

HAH! I do believe you are tempted to make us believe you are incredibly tall and lanky! And like temptation sometimes does, there is a shadow concealing the truth!
