In a few days we in the US will be celebrating Thanksgiving. Here are a few quotes for us to ponder; quotes that, I hope, will help us make thanksgiving and gratitude a part of every day of the year, not just one day.

Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good think that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because ALL things have contributed to your advancement, you should include ALL things in your gratitude. ~Ralph Waldo Everson

 

Now is no time to think of what you do not have. Think of what you can do with what there is. ~Ernest Hemingway

 

If a fellow isn’t thankful for what he’s got, he isn’t likely to be thankful for what he’s going to get. ~Frank A. Clark

Pride slays thanksgiving, but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow.   A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves. ~Henry Ward Beacher

 

For flowers that bloom about our feet;

For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;

For song of bird, and hum of bee;

For all things fair we hear or see.

Farther in heaven, we thank Thee!

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large about of Gratitude. ~A.A. Milne
