"What if you gave someone a gift, and they neglected to thank you for it -- would you be likely to give them another? Life is the same way. In order to attract more of the blessings that life has to offer, you must truly appreciate what you already have."

Ralph Marston








"Whatever our individual troubles and challenges may be, it’s important to pause every now and then to appreciate all that we have, on every level. We need to literally 'count our blessings,' give thanks for them, allow ourselves to enjoy them, and relish the experience of prosperity we already have."

Shakti Gawain



“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them”.

John F. Kennedy










“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






“Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world”.

John Milton










“When it comes to life the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude”.

Gilbert K. Chesterton



“Joy is the simplest form of gratitude”.

Karl Barth
