  • “I thank you God for most this amazing day: for the leaping greenly spirits of the trees and a blue dream of sky.” – E. E. Cummings

  • “Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produces and discharged and used up in order to exist.” -- William Faulkner

  • “Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not a coincidence.” – Erma Bombeck
  • “It never takes longer than a few minutes, when they get together, for everyone to revert to the state of nature, like a party marooned by a shipwreck. That’s what a family is.” -- Michael Chabon
