How beautiful a day can be
When kindness touches it!
We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.
Gratitude is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind.
If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice.
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
William Arthur Ward
One can pay back the loan of gold, but one dies forever in debt to those who are kind.
Something that has always puzzled me all my life is why, when I am in special
need of help, the good deed is usually done by somebody on whom I have no claim.
Thank you for the good times,
The days you filled with pleasure.
Thank you for fond memories,
And for feelings I'll always treasure.
No one who achieves success does so without acknowledging the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.
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
Saying "thank you" creates love.
Daphne Rose Kingma
Blessed are those that can give without remembering and receive without forgetting.
The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.
The Dalai Lama
God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say "thank you?"
Edwin Arlington Robinson
Two kinds of gratitude: The sudden kind we feel for what we take; the larger kind we feel for what we give.
William Arthur Ward
To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action.
Nothing that is done for you is a matter of course. Everything
originates in a will for the good, which is directed at you. Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of 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.
