Cultivating Gratitude: 10 Timeless Quotes to Inspire Thanksgiving


As we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the US, I thought I would share 10 quotes about giving thanks that are universal and timeless:

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

Marcus Tullius Cicero, Roman philosopher, statesman, and lawyer

“Thanksgiving is the life of grace.”

George Herbert, Welsh poet, priest, and orator

“If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.”

Meister Eckhart , German philosopher and theologian

“Let us be thankful for the life we have, for it is through that life that we are able to experience all of the beauty and wonder of the world.”

Maya Angelou, American memoirist, poet, and civil rights activist

“The heart that gives thanks is a happy heart.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson , American essayist, lecturer, poet, and philosopher

“Gratitude is not what we do sometimes for others. It is an overflowing of the heart, a feeling of wonder that so much has been given to us.”

Rabindranath Tagore, Bengali poet, musician, and novelist

“The thankful heart is like a magnet, it draws the best to it.”

Harriet Beecher Stowe, American abolitionist and author

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
