We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
Courtesies of a small and trivial character are the ones, which strike deepest in the grateful and appreciating heart.
Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way.
-Native American saying
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
-John F Kennedy
There is a calmness to a life lived in Gratitude, a quiet joy.
-Ralph H. Blum
Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.
-W. T. Purkiser
God has two dwellings; one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart.
People who live the most fulfilling lives are the ones who are always rejoicing at what they have.
Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.
Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast.
To give thanks in solitude is enough. Thanksgiving has wings and goes where it must go. Your prayer knows much more about it than you do.
To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.
-Johannes A. Gaertner
We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.
What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.
Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy—because we will always want to have something else or something more.
- Br. David Steindl-Rast
Never delay gratitude.
