Thoughts for Thursday: Gratitude

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

I can't believe the holiday are upon us! Where has the year gone? I'll probably do a special Thanksgiving T4T, but today I thought I might just focus on Gratitude in general, since we all ought to practice it all through the holidays (For more quotes, check out my other blog.)

"Black Friday: Because only in America do people trample trample others for sales exactly one day after being thankful for what they already have."--Ecard, Anonymous
"The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude."--Friedrich Nietzsche
"Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude."--Ralph Waldo Emerson
"A thankful person is thankful under all circumstances. A complaining soul complains even if he lives in paradise."--Baha'u'llah
"Gratitude is the heart's memory."--French Proverb

Which quote about gratitude is your favorite? Do you have one to add?


  1. Emerson is right. Echoes the verse in the Bible that says to give thanks in all things.

  2. These are some great quotes to live by!
