|Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world.
- John Milton
The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.
- William Blake
A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.
If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, Thank you, that would suffice.
- Meister Eckhart
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
For me, one of the greatest things about living in the United States is that we have a national holiday - Thanksgiving Day - November 25 this year - dedicated to honoring gratitude.
Having gratitude is one of the keys to a happy life.
Let every day be a day of profound thanksgiving.
I Receive ALL of Life with Thanksgiving.
I have gratitude for EVERYTHING that has ever occurred to bring me to this moment.
I give thanks for the joys and the sufferings, the moments of peace and the flashes of anger, the compassion and the indifference, the roar of my courage and the cold sweat of my fear.
I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.
