Give thanks and be grateful


A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.
- Cicero


Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.
- Oprah Winfrey


Gratitude is something of which none of us can give too much. For on the smiles, the thanks we give, our little gestures of appreciation, our neighbors build their philosophy of life.
- A. J. Cronin


Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
-- Melody Beattie


Every time we remember to say "thank you", we experience nothing less than heaven on earth.
- Sarah Ban Breathnach


If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.
- Meister Eckhardt


It isn't what you have in your pocket that makes you thankful, but what you have in your heart.
- Author Unknown


Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.
- Buddha


So often we dwell on the things that seem impossible rather than on the things that are possible. So often we are depressed by what remains to be done and forget to be thankful for all that has been done.
- Marian Wright Edelman


If you haven’t all the things you want, be grateful for the things you don’t have that you wouldn’t want.
- Author Unknown


When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.
- Willie Nelson


There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.
- Author Unknown


Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!
