“A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.” ― Herm Albright

“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.” ― Maya Angelou

“While we cry ourselves to sleep, gratitude waits patiently to console and reassure us; there is a landscape larger than the one we can see.” ― Sarah Ban Breathnach

“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

“It wasn’t that he was specially ungenerous but that he put things off to give his generosity a longer and more significant route.” ― Saul Bellow

“One way to open your eyes is to ask yourself, “What if I had never seen this before? What if I knew I would never see it again?” ―Rachel Carson

“So much has been given to me; I have no time to ponder over that which has been denied.” ― Helen Keller

“We cannot live for ourselves alone. Our lives are connected by a thousand invisible threads, and along these sympathetic fibers, our actions run as causes and return to us as results.” ― Herman Melville

“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” ―Dolly Parton

“I would hope they would develop some kind of habit that involves understanding that their life is so full they can afford to give in all kinds of ways to other people. I consider that to be baseline spirituality.” ― Susan Sarandon

“To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action. Nothing that is done for you is a matter of course. Everything originates in a will for the good, which is directed at you. Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude.” ― Albert Schweitzer

“To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle, Every cubic inch of space is a miracle.” ― Walt Whitman

“For me, every hour is grace. And I feel gratitude in my heart each time I can meet someone and look at his or her smile.” ―Elie Wiesel
