Albert Schweitzer:
At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.

Alfred Painter:
Saying thank you is more than good manners. It is good spirituality.

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

Eric Hoffer:
The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.

H. U. Westermayer:
The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.

John F. Kennedy:
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
Margaret Cousins:
Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.
Ralph Waldo Emerson:
I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new.

Henry Ward Beecher:
Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.

Marcel Proust:
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
William James:
The deepest craving of human nature is the need to be appreciated.

Wishing all of you my dear American friends, sisters, muse and everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and I give you my thanks for your friendship… guess it wouldn’t go amiss to thank Vincent D’Onofrio… if it wasn’t for him I would never have found blogging and all of you.

Thanks Vincent… I wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving too… mwahxxx
