    I am grateful for each and every food bank that helps families in need. Now, more than ever, hunger is a crisis in America, and yet it is not spoken enough and people have yet to give enough to help those in need. Local food banks help fill this need but they need our help, our support, and most importantly, our dollars. No one should ever go hungry.

    I think the best Thanksgiving we ever had was one where we didn't even have a turkey. Mom and Dad sat us kids down and explained that business hadn't been good at Dad's store, so we couldn't afford a turkey. We had vegetables and bread and pie, and it was just fine. Later on, I went into Mom and Dad's bedroom to thank them and I caught them eating a little turkey. I guess that really wasn't the best Thanksgiving.

    Peace in the whole world this Thanksgiving.

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

  • Irving Berlin
    Got no check books, got no banks. Still I'd like to express my thanks - I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night.

  • 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.

  • Robert Quillen
    If you count all your assets, you always show a profit.

  • Theodore Roosevelt
    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.

  • Eugene Cloutier
    To know the value of generosity, it is necessary to have suffered from the cold indifference of others.
