    Why most of the people like allusions?

    Why most of the people like allusions like " You are right", "You are great", "Only you can do it", "It's great pleasure you are here" , etc..

    Hmm am not sure if you are correct.  I dont understand allusions so I google it.

    An allusion is a figure of speech that makes a reference to, or a representation of, people, places, events, literary work, myths, or works of art, either directly or by implication.

    So am not sure your question is accurate.  Can you elaborate more?

    Most people like to say, or hear statements such as "you're right", "you're great", or "glad you are here", because it makes them feel accepted and welcome.

    This is creating a positive reaction for all involved. Our lives and bodies flourish and depend on "good thoughts" and deteriorate with the opposite.

    I would like to ask you the same question.

    Clearly people like to feel smart and appreciated and accepted by others. Any affirmation of an opinion, compliment, or otherwise encouraging or appreciatory statement is a natural boost to one's sense of self image. It just makes you feel good to hear that you are.

    Conversely, negative statements, "What do you think you're doing ?", "You are a big loser", or "You couldn't pull that off if your life depended on it"  only serve to pull us down because they make us question our abilities and tax our sense of self worth.

    In the end positive statements and encouragement help. Negative, disparaging remarks don't. It is that simple!

    Well, when people give their opinions and speak their thoughts, they are generally alluding to something that happened to them, directly or indirectly, or something that they think is truth.  It's something familiar and people feel comfortable talking about what they know and understand.

    1.  Shake Shah means  i l l u s i o n s.   
    2.  People should not like false praise. People should like sincere encouragement and inspiration.
    3. Especially children. They can become addicted to false praise, so adults have to be careful. Instead, adults need to inspire and encourage children rather than trick and manipulate them with false praise.
    4. Actually, too much praise... deserved or not... will put anyone in a position of ego illusions instead of reality feedback within them.   Reality feedback within is what we all need to stay focused on.
    5. Especially children.
