He enjoys much who is thankful for little;
a grateful mind is both a great and happy mind.
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy;
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
Let us rise up and be thankful; for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.
I am grateful for what I am and have.
My thanksgiving is perpetual…
O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches.
No run on my bank can drain it
for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment.
–Henry David Thoreau
Be grateful for whomever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
–Jalal ad-Din Rumi
Live your life so that the fear of death can never enter your heart. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light. Give thanks for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. And if perchance you see no reason for giving thanks, rest assured the fault is in yourself.
–Chief Tecumseh, Shawnee Indian Chief
