I have a thing for quotes. I love the way they can convey such deep meanings even when they consist of just a few words. So, just in time for Thanksgiving (it’s closer than you think!), I have collected a baker’s dozen quotes about Gratitude, something we all could use more of in our lives.
Enjoy the read, and please take the time to say “thank you” to someone who has impacted your life in some positive way.
“At times, our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
– Albert Schweitzer
“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.”
― Melody Beattie
“Today I choose to live with gratitude for the love that fills my heart, the peace that rests within my spirit, and the voice of hope that says all things are possible.”
“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”
– Brian Tracy
“Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.”
“When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.” — Willie Nelson
“Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”
“None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy.”
— Fred De Witt Van Amburgh
“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
― Marcel Proust
“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”
― A.A. Milne
“Those with a grateful mindset tend to see the message in the mess. And even though life may knock them down, the grateful find reasons, if even small ones, to get up.”
― Steve Maraboli
“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.”
― W. T. Purkiser
“It’s a funny thing about life, once you begin to take note of the things you are grateful for, you begin to lose sight of the things that you lack.”
― Germany Kent
