“The danger of praise leading to damage is at the root of the Book of Proverbs rather enigmatic observation: “He who blesses his neighbor in a loud voice in the morning, it will later be thought a curse” (27:14).

Bible commentaries understand this to mean that if a person comes to public notice even as a result of a neighbor’s blessing (a positive association) the intense scrutiny engendered by his newfound fame ultimately will probably damage his good name- or worse.” (Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, Words that Hurt, Words that Heal, p.20)
