It is Time to Say Thank You

By

Thanksgiving Day is no ordinary holiday. It is a time to reflect on one's good fortunes. It is a time to greet family and friends. It is a time to spread the message of love. Celebrate Thanksgiving with these memorable thanksgiving quotes.

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

Seneca
Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and new.

Henry Ward Beecher
Pride slays thanksgiving, but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.

Ayn Rand
Thanksgiving is a typically American holiday. The lavish meal is a symbol of the fact that abundant consumption is the result and reward of production.

William A. Ward
God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say 'thank you?'

Horace
Only a stomach that rarely feels hungry scorns common things.

Aesop
Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.

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

George R. Hendrick
True thanksgiving means that we need to thank God for what He has done for us, and not to tell Him what we have done for Him.

Sir John Templeton
How wonderful it would be if we could help our children and grandchildren to learn thanksgiving at an early age. Thanksgiving opens the doors. It changes a child's personality. A child is resentful, negative, or thankful. Thankful children want to give, they radiate happiness; they draw people.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
We will speed the day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing. Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, I'm free at last.
