Gratitude is the mother of all virtues

As we express our gratitude,
we must never forget that
the highest appreciation is not to utter words,
but to live by them.
- John F Kennedy

I would maintain that thanks are

the highest form of thought and
that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.
- G K Chesterton

To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant,

to enact gratitude is generous and noble,
but to live gratitude is to touch heaven.
- Johannes A Gaertner

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

Not what we say about our blessings,

but how we use them,
is the true measure of our thanksgiving.
- W T Purkiser

In our daily lives,

we must see that
it is not happiness that makes us grateful,
but the gratefulness that makes us happy.
- Albert Clarke
