One act of thanksgiving, when things go wrong with us, is worth a thousand thanks when things are agreeable to our inclinations.

We learned about gratitude and humility; that so many people had a hand in our success, from the teachers who inspired us to the janitors who kept our school clean, and we were taught to value everyone's contribution and treat everyone with respect.

I’m grateful for words; I’m grateful beyond words.

You give me a gift? Bam! Thank You note. You invite me somewhere? Pow! RSVP. You do me a favor? Wham! Favor returned. Do not test my politeness.

Nothing is a greater stranger to my breast, or a sin that my soul more abhors, than that black and detestable one, ingratitude.

I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.

It is very easy during today's economic crisis to start entertaining thoughts that can imprison us and block our awareness of choices we could make in improving our circumstances. That's where gratitude can begin to help. No matter how small a seed or how you measure it, is there something I can be grateful for right now?

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Gratitude is a mind state that leads to happiness and contentment. So, it’s good to walk through life with a grateful heart. We can get caught up in negative emotions, like resentment or anger. But such emotions are destructive and painful for you as well as for others.

By operating in ways that encourage others, we ourselves reap the benefits because we are contributing rather than receiving.

If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share.
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.
