Be Thankful


  Some thoughts from great thinkers on gratitude:

“Some people have a wonderful capacity to appreciate again and again, freshly and naively, the basic good of life, with awe, pleasure, wonder, and even ecstasy.” – A.H. Maslow

“Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone.” – Gladys Berthe Stern

“There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy.” –Ralph H. Blum

“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

“Happiness is itself a kind of gratitude.” –Joseph Wood Krutch

“If you can’t be thankful for what you receive, be thankful for what you escape.” –Unknown

“They are not poor that have little, but they that desire much.  The richest man, whatever his lot, is the one who’s content with his lot.”  -Dutch Proverb

“A thankful person is thankful under all circumstances.  A complaining soul complains even if he lives in paradise.”  -Baha’u’llah

“Find the good – and praise it.”  -Alex Haley

I am thankful for Joe, Maggie, my family, my friends, and my health.
