Let's Thank One Another

"Think to Thank.
In these three words are the finest capsule course
 for a happy marriage,
formula for enduring friendship,
and a pattern for personal happiness."
~Thomas S. Monson

"If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life
 is 'thank you,'
 it will be enough."
~Meister Eckhardt

"If you haven't all the things you want,
 be grateful for the things you don't have that you wouldn't want."
~Author Unknown

"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.
  It is then burst into flame by an encounter
 with another human being.
  We should all be thankful for those people 
who rekindle the inner spirit."
  ~Albert Schweitzer

"To live a life of gratitude is to open our eyes
 to the countless ways in which we are supported
 by the world around us.
  Such a life provides less space for our suffering, 
because our attention is more balanced. 
 We are more often occupied with noticing what we are given, 
thanking those who have helped us,
 and repaying the world in some concrete way for 
what we are receiving."
  ~Gregg Krech

"You say grace before meals.  All right. 
 But, I say grace before the concert and the opera,
 and grace before the play and pantomime,
 and grace before I open a book,
 and grace before sketching, painting, swimming,
 fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and
 grace before I dip the pen in the ink."
  ~G.K. Chesterton

"The unthankful heart...discovers no mercies; 
but let the thankful heart sweep through the day,
 and, as the magnet finds the iron, 
so it will find, in every hour,
 some heavenly blessings! 
 ~Henry Ward Beecher

"The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows,
 spectacular skies and serene lakes. 
 It has enough lush forests, flowered fields and sandy beaches.
  It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day. 
 What the world needs more of is people
 to appreciate and enjoy it." 
 ~Michael Josephson
