Thanksgiving is all about being thankful but sometimes that can get lost in the hubbub of planning, cooking and dealing with your in-laws all day. To help remind you of what Thanksgiving is really about, check out these thankful quotes for some peace of mind.
Here are some thankful quotes to help put things in perspective if your dog ate the turkey:
‘If a fellow isn’t thankful for what he has got, he isn’t likely to be thankful for what he’s going to get.’ Frank A. Clark
‘When asked if my cup is half-full or half-empty my only response is that I am thankful I have a cup.’ Sam Lefkowitz
‘Thanksgiving comes to us out of the prehistoric dimness, universal to all ages and all faiths. At whatever straws we must grasp, there is always a time for gratitude and new beginnings.’ J. Robert Moskin
‘Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.’ Melody Beattie
‘Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.’ Theodore Roosevelt
‘It is literally true, as the thankless say, that they have nothing to be thankful for. He who sits by the fire, thankless for the fire, is just as if he had no fire. Nothing is possessed save in appreciation, of which thankfulness is the indispensable ingredient. But a thankful heart hath a continual feast.’ W.J. Cameron
‘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
