Be thankful for all that you have, not just at thanksgiving, but all the year through.
If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice.
Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action.
We can always find something to be thankful for, no matter what may be the
burden of our wants, or the special subject of our petitions.
A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues.
Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow.
Edward Sandford Martin
Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.
We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude.
E. P. Powell
You say, "If I had a little more, I should be very satisfied." You make a mistake. If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
William Arthur Ward
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.
How wonderful it would be if we could help our children and grandchildren to learn thanksgiving at an early age. Thanksgiving opens the doors. It changes a child's personality. A child is resentful, negativeor thankful. Thankful children want to give, they radiate happiness, they draw people.
Sir John Templeton
He who thanks but with the lips thanks but in part; the full, the true Thanksgiving comes from the heart.
We can always find something to be thankful for, and there may be reasons why we ought to
be thankful for even those dispensations which appear dark and frowning.
If we meet someone who owes us thanks, we right away remember that. But how often do we meet someone to whom we owe thanks without remembering that?
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
