“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.”
–Cicero (106–43 BCE)
“Thank you for letting me be a human being.”
St. Clare of Assisi, right before she died,
“Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good.”
I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.
~Gilbert K. Chesterton
"The well of Providence is deep. It’s the buckets we bring to it that are small."
Gratitude is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind.
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
When we focus on our gratitude, the tide of disappointment goes out and the tide of love rushes in.
Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
~William Arthur Ward
