Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness.
Gratitude is the memory of the heart.
Jean Baptiste Massieu
What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well
No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.
The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.
~ Oscar Wilde
The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you.
John E. Southard
I thank you for your kindness,
I will not soon forget;
You're one of the nicest people
I have ever met.
When a person doesn't have gratitude, something is missing in his or her humanity.
A person can almost be defined by his or her attitude toward gratitude.
I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.
One can pay back the loan of gold, but one dies forever in debt to those who are kind.
Kindness, like a boomerang, always returns.
Unselfish and noble actions are the most radiant pages in the biography of souls.
You learn about gratitude by giving. You learn about humility by receiving,
and in the pecking order of human qualities, I'd probably put humility somewhere before gratitude.
Not what we give,
But what we share,
For the gift
without the giver
James Russell Lowell
Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone.
I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks.
~ William Shakespeare
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
~ Mark Twain
I feel a very unusual sensation - if it is not indigestion, I think it must be gratitude.
Irish dramatist, poet, author and one of the most iconic figures from
late Victorian society. For his sexuality he suffered the indignity and shame of imprisonment.
For a long time his name was synonymous with scandal and intrigue.
However with changing social attitudes he is remembered with great affection for his biting social criticism, wit and linguistic skills.
When we show our respect for other living things, they respond with respect for us.
Arapaho ~ Native American Proverbs
Hope is the physician of each misery.
~ Irish Proverbs
Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.
~ Albert Einstein
