Gratitude


Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
~William Arthur Ward

Gratitude is the memory of the heart.
~Jean Baptiste Massieu, translated from French

Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy -- because we will always want to have something else or something more.
~ Brother David Steindel-Rast

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.
~Oprah Winfrey

We cannot change our past. We can not change the fact that people act in a certain way. We can not change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.
~Charles Swindoll
He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.
~Epictetus

Praise the bridge that carried you over.
~George Colman
In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.
~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer

A simple grateful thought turned heavenwards is the most perfect prayer.
~Doris Lessing
