Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.

~W.T. Purkiser

 

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

 

You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.

~Sarah Ban Breathnach

 

There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy.

~Ralph H. Blum

 

Can you see the holiness in those things you take for granted–a paved road or a washing machine? If you concentrate on finding what is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.

~Rabbi Harold Kushner

 

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.

~Brother David Steindl-Rast
