Quotes on Gratitude……………
(Sun, February 24, 2008 - 4:17 AM )

- 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. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

- A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.

- Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.

- Sometimes we need to remind ourselves that thankfulness is indeed a virtue.

- Let's choose today to quench our thirst for the good life we thinks others lead by acknowledging the good that already exists in our lives. We can then offer the universe the gift of our grateful hearts.

- The most fortunate are those who have a wonderful capacity to appreciate again and again, freshly and naively, the basic goods of life, with awe, pleasure, wonder, and even ecstasy.

- Gratitude is slowing down your pace, opening up your senses to the world around you, and feeling the impact such awareness has in how you feel and how you live the very next moment of your life

- Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life.

- To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.

- In our daily lives, we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but the gratefulness that makes us happy.

- Like everything else on the path to mastery, gratitude is a choice. You can choose to wait for some meaningfully pleasant situation to arise and then feel gratitude in response, or you can choose to be grateful at all times, in all circumstances, and watch as the world conspires to assist you in your path.

- When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.
