Thankful

Joseph Pearce

One who has humility will have a sense of gratitude for his own existence and for the existence of all that he sees. This gratitude enables him to see with the eyes of wonder.

Joseph Pearce

Prideful souls, lacking both gratitude and wonder, waste their time with mindless distraction after mindless distraction, filling the vacuum that their mindlessness has created with whatever trash and trivia that their fingers or thumbs can deliver on the gadgets to which they are chained…which command their attention and rule and ruin their lives.

Joseph Pearce

We need to take more time with trees and less time with trash and trivia. A tree, or a flower, or a sunset are priceless gifts for which a lack of gratitude is a sin of omission. We cannot ever be wasting time when we’re taking it in wonder-filled contemplation.

William Shakespeare

How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless child.

Sarah Ban Breathnack

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.

Cicero

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.

Martin Buxbaum

We can curse the fate that made us…or love each living hour…if we
do the job God gave us…be we humble weed or flower.
For each of us is needed…and each of us has worth…or He never
would have bothered…to honor us with birth.
There is fragrance in the roses…and shade beneath the pine…and
softness in the clover…and food upon the vine.
And each one serves a different need…just as you and I…be we
creeping in the valley…or climbing to the sky.

St. Augustine

What can we say better in our heart, utter with our mouth, write with our pen, than the words ‘thank God’? Nothing can be said with greater brevity, nor heard with greater gladness, nor felt with greater uplift of the spirit, nor done with greater benefit.

Charles Dickens

Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many — not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.

G.K. Chesterton

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.

Jim Stenson

If your parents are still alive, go back and thank them. Thank them while you still can. You will make them deeply happy, and this expression of gratitude will change the way you deal with your own children.

Orrin Woodward

Ingratitude produces pride while gratitude produces humility.

William Arthur Ward

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say thank you?

William Arthur Ward

Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.

John Wooden

Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.

e. e. cummings

I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.
