C. JoyBell C.
“This is the key to life: To expect everything to be given to you from above, yet to be genuinely surprised and forever grateful, when they are. Expecting all good things to be yours, while not knowing how to take anything for granted. If there may be a key in life, this is the key.”
C. JoyBell C.

Henry David Thoreau
“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. It is surprising how contented one can be with nothing definite - only a sense of existence. Well, anything for variety. I am ready to try this for the next ten thousand years, and exhaust it. How sweet to think of! my extremities well charred, and my intellectual part too, so that there is no danger of worm or rot for a long while. My breath is sweet to me. O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches. No run on my bank can drain it, for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment.”
Henry David Thoreau

Jamie McGuire
“I wasn't sure what I'd done to deserve such a wonderful gift, and I wasn't sure if it was insolent, but I thanked God for fallen angels.”
Jamie McGuire, Providence

Henri Matisse
“I didn't expect to recover from my second operation but since I did, I consider that I'm living on borrowed time. Every day that dawns is a gift to me and I take it in that way. I accept it gratefully without looking beyond it. I completely forget my physical suffering and all the unpleasantness of my present condition and I think only of the joy of seeing the sun rise once more and of being able to work a little bit, even under difficult conditions.”
Henri Matisse

“It's a funny thing about life, once you begin to take note of the things you are grateful for, you begin to lose sight of the things that you lack.”
Germany Kent

“A life is not a waste of time”
Nalini Singh, Angels' Blood

Richelle E. Goodrich

Criss Jami
“For God to prove himself on demand, physically, would be a grave disappointment, and the strongest Christians should be considerably grateful that he chooses not to do so. The skeptic endlessly demands proof, yet God refuses to insult the true intelligence of man, the '6th sense', the chief quality, the acumen which distinguishes man from the rest of creation, faith.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Crystal Woods
“To all those who care,
You can't forever.
Time steals the years,
And your reflection in the mirror.
But I can still see the story in your eyes,
And your timeless passion that’s never died.
While your skin became tired,
Your heart became strong,
The present became the past,
And your memories like a song.
And though the moment at hand is all that we have,
You’ve taught me to live it like it is our last.
Since two words don't say ‘thank you’ the way they are meant to,
I'll try all my life to be something like you.”
Crystal Woods, Write like no one is reading 2

Richard Wright
“You asked me questions nobody ever asked me before. You knew that I was a murderer two times over, but you treated me like a man...”
Richard Wright, Native Son

Hope Bradford
“Gain strength. Suck up energy. Make a point of appreciating the fragrance of the flowers and the beauty of the sunset. It is like armor. When you take a moment to practice my message you can then be armed with an ability to be detached. One is meant to forgive, to forgive and be compassionate."~Kuan Yin”
Hope Bradford, Oracle of Compassion: The Living Word of Kuan Yin

“In moments of surprise we catch at least a glimpse of the joy to which gratefulness opens the door.”
David Steindl-Rast

“One single gift acknowledged in gratefulness has the power to dissolve the ties of our alienation.”
David Steindl-Rast

Elizabeth Berg
“Good weather will do this to people, bond them in their gratefulness.”
Elizabeth Berg, The Pull of The Moon

Elisabeth Elliot
“St. Augustine said, "The very pleasures of human life men acquire by difficulties." There are times when the entire arrangement of our existence is disrupted and we long then for just one ordinary day - seeing our ordinary life as greatly desirable, even wonderful, in the light of the terrible disruption that has taken place. Difficulty opens our eyes to pleasures we had taken for granted.”
Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart

Ayokunle Falomo
“Let your heart race. Let it run wild and free. Let it burst out with sounds of liberty, of gratefulness for being alive at this moment for this moment is all we have.”
Ayokunle Falomo, thread, this wordweaver must!

“We remain ungrateful to God when we fail to know, acknowledge, and use effectively the true purpose and power He has endowed in us, but instead, cry over our weaknesses!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Along the pathway of life, we encountered useless experiences, and great experiences that served us and others well… all of them, good and not so good experiences, contributed to create the person who we are right now… I AM GRATEFUL for everything. _nickc”

José Mauro de Vasconcelos
“Güzel bir köşe var. Yiyecek bir şeyler götürürüz. En çok ne istersin?"
"Seni, Portuga."
"Ben salamdan, yumurtadan, muzdan söz ediyorum..."
"Her şeyi severim. Evde yiyecek bir şey bulunduğumuz zaman sevmeyi öğrendik.”
José Mauro de Vasconcelos, درخت زیبای من

Richard Powers
“People think they need to be healed, but the truth is much more beautiful. Even a minute is more than we deserve. No one should be anything but dead. Instead we get honey of out rocks. Miracles from nothing. It’s easy. We don’t need to get better. We’re already us. And everything that is, is ours.”
Richard Powers

Kristin Michelle Elizabeth
“I am grateful for the people who have given me a taste of my own medicine. Gratefulness has a way of making it go down that much easier.”
Kristin Michelle Elizabeth

“I went hiking with my sister and a friend on the Appalachian Trail for 7 days. No change of clothes, no hot shower, no bed. By the end of it, I was thankful for just a hot cup of coffee and a shave.
As they say, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.”
This is true of people, possessions, and experiences.”
7Cups, 7 Cups for the Searching Soul
