Correction Quotations

Correction does much, but encouragement does more.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Beauty is about perception, not about make-up. I think the beginning of all beauty is knowing and liking oneself. You can't put on make-up, or dress yourself, or do you hair with any sort of fun or joy if you're doing it from a position of correction.
Kevyn Aucoin

A coach is someone who can give correction without causing resentment.
John Wooden

Christlike communications are expressions of affection and not anger, truth and not fabrication, compassion and not contention, respect and not ridicule, counsel and not criticism, correction and not condemnation. They are spoken with clarity and not with confusion. They may be tender or they may be tough, but they must always be tempered.
L. Lionel Kendrick

A reform is a correction of abuses; a revolution is a transfer of power.
