GRATITUDE QUOTES

There is not a more pleasing exercise of the mind than gratitude. It is accompanied with such an inward satisfaction that the duty is sufficiently rewarded by the performance.
~Joseph Addison

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.
-- Melodie Beattie

Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.
-- Henry Ward Beecher

-- Dietrich Bonhoeffer

-- Buddha

-- A. J. Cronin

Gratitude is riches. Complaint is poverty.
-- Doris Day

“So often we dwell on the things that seem impossible rather than on the things that are possible. So often we are depressed by what remains to be done and forget to be thankful for all that has been done.”

-- Albert Einstein

I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson


Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all.

-- John F. Kennedy

"In the midst of living life; in the midst of chaos; in the midst of endless lists of to-do's and people to take care of and little pieces of you going outward, I challenge you to shift your subconscious, to shift your attitude, and find three things to feel grateful for. Look around you with your senses. What three small things can you feel grateful for? Think about it and breathe it in and say: 'I am grateful. I am grateful. I am grateful for all the abundance around me and in me.' What do you picture when you say these words? Imagine it as if it is true. I am grateful for all the abundance around me and in me."
-- Cheryl Melody

To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action.

Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude.
-- Albert Schweitzer
