GRATITUDE

Saying thank you is more than good manners. It is good spirituality.

Alfred Painter


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 Steindl-Rast


Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.
Buddha

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.

Cicero


Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.

Denis Waitley


If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice.

Meister Eckhart


As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

John F Kennedy


There is as much greatness of mind in acknowledging a good turn, as in doing it.

Seneca


The deepest craving of human nature is the need to be appreciated.

William James


In the New Testament, religion is grace and ethics is gratitude.

Thomas Erskine
