Thoughts for Thursday: Gratitude

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

I can't believe the holiday are upon us! Where has the year gone? I'll probably do a special Thanksgiving T4T, but today I thought I might just focus on Gratitude in general, since we all ought to practice it all through the holidays (For even more quotes, visit my other blog.)

"We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses."--Abraham Lincoln

"Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."--Marcel Proust

"Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good."--May Angelou

"Trade your expectation for appreciation and the world instantly changes."--Tony Robbins

"Gratitude is the sign of noble souls."--Aesop

"Ingratitude is monstrous..."--William Shakespeare

Which is your favorite quote about gratitude? Do you have one to add?

  1. So good. There surely is a lot to discourage us but twice as much to make us thankful!
