10 Quotes on Gratitude

  1. 1. Thanksgiving is recognition of a debt that cannot be paid. We express thanks, whether or not we are able otherwise to reimburse the giver. When thanksgiving is filled with true meaning and is not just the formality of a polite “thank you,” it is the recognition of dependence. - Billy Graham
  2. 2. Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for. - Epicurus
  3. 3. In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices. - Elizabeth Gilbert
  4. 4. Gratitude is the least of all virtues, but ingratitude is the worst of vices. - Thomas Fuller
  5. 5. If you can’t be content with what you have received, be thankful for what you have escaped. - Author unknown
  6. 6. Gratitude takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the goodness of God. For the grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference. - Thomas Merton
  7. 7. Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity... It makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. - Melody Beattie
  8. 8. True forgiveness is when you can say, "Thank you for that experience.” - Oprah Winfrey
