50 Best Compliment Quotes For The Beautiful & Strong Women (And Men!) In Your Life

Giving a compliment can really brighten someone’s day — but giving them 50 compliments can give them all the power in the world.

There are much lesser-known and underrated holidays around the world, and World Compliment Day is one of them. March 1 was a day to be recognized. People all over the globe celebrated the most positive and uplifting holiday of them all — World Compliment Day ... but it should be celebrated every day, if we're being honest.

World Compliment Day was founded by Hans Poortvliet, a recognition professional from the Netherlands, who wanted to create a better world by having people compliment each other. His efforts proved to be successful and now many people recognize March 1 as a day of saying positive things to others to brighten their spirits.

You can start off by complimenting your parents on their cooking, a friend on her new hair, or a coworker on his outfit. But you don’t have to limit yourself to only complimenting people you know as a compliment to a stranger on the subway can greatly improve a bad day they’re having. Don’t forget to compliment your bus driver, cashier, or banker for their efforts either. You never know how far a small act of kindness can go!
