It's a nice idea to use gratitude quotes in thank you notes. You can use them in appreciation letters, thank you cards at thanksgiving and any other time. When your thank you wording or expressing gratitude is proving difficult, use a quote.
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
William Arthur Ward
If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness. It will change your life mightily.
You won't be happy with more
until you're happy with what you've got.
Make it a habit to tell people thank you.
To express your appreciation,
sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return.
Truly appreciate those around you,
and you'll soon find many others around you.
Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it.
Gratitude is something of which
none of us can give too much.
For on the smiles, the thanks we give,
our little gestures of appreciation,
our neighbors build their philosophy of life.
A. J. Cronin
How easily we can forget how precious life is!
So long as we can remember, we've just been here, being alive.
Unlike other things for which we have a good comparison
black to white, day to night, good to bad
we are so immersed in life that we can see it
only in the context of itself.
We don't see life as compared to anything,
to not-being, for example, to never having been born.
Life just is. But life itself is a gift.
It's a compliment just being born:
to feel, breathe, think, play, dance, sing,
work, make love, for this particular lifetime.
Today, let's give thanks for life.
For life itself. For simply being born!
Daphne Rose Kingma, Source: A Grateful Heart
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.
Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone.
Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.
Henry Ward Beecher
Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.
