A Writers Collection of Gratitude
I thought I'd share some favorite quotes on gratitude. Wishing you a wonderful week of Thanksgiving!

If you aren’t grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more.”

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”
“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorns have roses.”
― Alphonse Karr, A Tour Round My Garden
“If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.”
― Meister Eckhart
“We hold the key to lasting happiness in our own hands. For it is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful.”

“We’re a nation hungry for more joy: Because we’re starving from a lack of gratitude.”

"Could I suggest that we see gratitude as a disposition, a way of life that stands independent of our current situation? In other words, I’m suggesting that instead of being thankful for things, we focus on being thankful in our circumstances—whatever they may be."
― Deiter F. Uchtdorf
“Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity; it must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all.”
― William Faulkner
