I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. G.K. Chesterton
Of all the attitudes we can acquire, surely the attitude of gratitude is the most important and by far the most life-changing. Zig Ziglar
Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation. Brian Tracy
There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy. Ralph H. Blum
Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light. Albert Schweitzer
At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. Albert Schweitzer
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. Marcel Proust
The more you express gratitude for what you have the more you will have to express gratitude for. Zig Ziglar
How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.
He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
It is literally true, as the thankless say, that they have nothing to be thankful for. He who sits by the fire, thankless for the fire, is just as if he had no fire. Nothing is possessed save in appreciation, of which thankfulness is the indispensable ingredient. But a thankful heart hath a continual feast.
Live your life so that the fear of death can never enter your heart. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light. Give thanks for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. And if perchance you see no reason for giving thanks, rest assured the fault is in yourself.
Chief Tecumseh, Shawnee Indian Chief
