A multitude of quotes...a multitude of thanks this time of year!

************************************************** ***

Albert Schweitzer:

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.
Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.

Albert Schweitzer:

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.

Alfred Painter:

Saying thank you is more than good manners. It is good spirituality.

Cicero:

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

Eric Hoffer:

The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.

Henry Ward Beecher:

Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.
