 Wisdom Quotes about Gratitude


A collection of inspirational wisdom, sayings and quotes on the subject of gratitude.

When you look at life through the eyes of gratitude, the world becomes a wonderful place.  The more you find to be grateful about, the more you find to be grateful about.  Gratitude is a wonderful antidote to depression.  It lifts you out of your small self and gives you an expanded view. 

A simple exercise: 

Think of one nice thing that happened today that you can be thankful for....
notice how you feel as you dwell on it. 

Now, think of a yukky thing that made you sad or angry or upset or fearful....
notice how you feel as you dwell on it.

Which one made you smile?  Which one made you feel uplifted? Which one made you feel heavy? Which one made you feel light?

So the more times you find something to be grateful / thankful for, the more times you feel good.  The more times you feel good, the more of that joy you spread to others.   Watch out... it could be contagious....

It's that simple!



Gratitude helps you to grow and expand.
Gratitude brings joy and laughter into your lives
and into the lives of all those around you.

~ Eileen Caddy ~

There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as if everything is.

~ Albert Einstein ~

To find the universal elements enough;
to find the air and the water exhilarating;
to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter;
to be thrilled by the stars at night:
to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring ...
these are some of the rewards of the simple life.

~ John Burroughs, Naturalist (1837-1921) ~

Look at everything
as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time.
then your time on earth
will be filled with glory.

~ Betty Smith, novelist (1896-1972) ~

To see the world in a grain of sand
and Heaven in a wildflower,
hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.

~ William Blake ~

Those who are Awake
live in a state of constant amazement ...

~ Jack Kornfield ~

Cherish yesterday,
Dream tomorrow,
Live today.

~ Richard Bach (from 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull') ~
