Catherine Pulsifer, from Many Blessings
"Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving."
"God is glorified, not by our groans, but by our thanksgivings."

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

"When asked if my cup is half-full or half-empty my only response is that I am thankful I have a cup."
"Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action."
W. J. Cameron
"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."
"Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it."
William Arthur Ward
"Gratitude is our most direct line to God and the angels. If we take the time, no matter how crazy and troubled we feel,
we can find something to be thankful for. The more we seek gratitude, the more reason the angels will give us for gratitude and joy to exist in our lives."
Terry Lynn Taylor
"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."
"Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some."
