Thankful Thursday

As we close out dreary November, let us pause on this day of Thanks to do some Giving. To family, friends, strangers. No matter who where when. Through the ages, the best among us has lead the rest of us to the same state, that of gratitude. For a few moments, join with me to contemplate these sages and their best advice. That is all we need today. “Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” ― Marcel Proust

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”

  1. Thank you, Moira, for this great collection!
    I am very much touched by the Thornton Wilder Saying “The highest tribute …”
    It is similar to my favourite saying during the last years,
    “Tradition is not to preserve the ashes but pass on the flame.”
    Thomas Morus (1478)
    I wish Thanks and Thankfulness around the world!
    Uta
