A-Z - gratitude

gratitude can change my day from bad to good. i just have to remember that i have so much to be grateful for. usually it comes when i hear of someone's situation being harder than mine. i wish it didn't take that, but usually that's when i'm the most grateful.

Gratitude is an art of painting an adversity into a lovely picture.  ~Kak Sri

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. ~G.K. Chesterton



He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.  ~Epictetus
 
We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.  ~Thornton Wilder
 
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy



When eating bamboo sprouts, remember the man who planted them. ~Chinese Proverb
