Gratitude quotes
Gratitude
1.

ORPHAN, n. A living person whom death has deprived of the power of filial ingratitude -- a privation appealing with a particular eloquence to all that is sympathetic in human nature. When young the orphan is commonly sent to an asylum, where by careful cultivation of its rudimentary sense of locality it is taught to know its place. It is then instructed in the arts of dependence and servitude and eventually turned loose to prey upon the world as a bootblack or scullery maid.

- Ambrose Bierce
2.

Every professional athlete owes a debt of gratitude to the fans and management, and pays an installment every time he plays. He should never miss a payment.

- Hull, Bobby
3.

Fear guides more than gratitude.

- Goldsmith, Oliver
4.

Blow, blow, thou winter wind Thou art not so unkind, As man's ingratitude.

- William Shakespeare
5.

Gratitude is not only the memory but the homage of the heart rendered to God for his goodness.

- Willis, Nathaniel P.
6.

Next to ingratitude the most painful thing to bear is gratitude.

- Beecher, Henry Ward
7.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

- Melody Beattie
8.

Maybe the only thing worse than having to give gratitude constantly is having to accept it.

- Faulkner, William
9.

True thanksgiving means that we need to thank God for what He has done for us, and not to tell Him what we have done for Him. -

- Hendrick, George R.
10.

To remind a man of the good turns you have done him is very much like a reproach.

- Demosthenes
11.

Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world.

- Milton, John
12.

An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.

- Carl Jung
13.

Friendships begin with liking or gratitude roots that can be pulled up.

- Eliot, George
14.

The general cry is against ingratitude, but the complaint is misplaced, it should be against vanity; none but direct villains are capable of willful ingratitude; but almost everybody is capable of thinking he hath done more that another deserves, while the other thinks he hath received less than he deserves.

- Alexander Pope
15.

There are minds so impatient of inferiority that their gratitude is a species of revenge, and they return benefits, not because recompense is a pleasure, but because obligation is a pain.

- Johnson, Samuel
16.

The public have neither shame or gratitude.

- Hazlitt, William
17.

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.

- Cicero
18.

Because gratification of a desire leads to the temporary stilling of the mind and the experience of the peaceful, joyful Self it's no wonder that we get hooked on thinking that happiness comes from the satisfaction of desires. This is the meaning of the old adage, Joy is not in things, it is in us.

- Borysenko, Joan
19.

The reason why great men meet with so little pity or attachment in adversity, would seem to be this: the friends of a great man were made by his fortune, his enemies by himself, and revenge is a much more punctual paymaster than gratitude.

- C. C. Colton
20.

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.

- Taylor, Terry Lynn
