Gratitude Quotes
(20+ quotes)

Gratitude quotes and expressions of gratitude have magical powers. The more you use them, the more you will have to be grateful for.  Try it. “Thank you” is the perfect prayer...

...according to Meister Eckhart’s quote. Make a list of everything you are grateful for today. Appreciation brings multiplication. Rather than worry about not having enough money, begin focusing on appreciating the money you do have. What you think about expands. Think about lack, and you’ll get more lack. Express thanks for what you have and you’ll get more. Look around you. What do you have a lot of? Congratulations. You created every bit of it with your thought patterns. If you want different things, start having different thoughts, but make gratitude a priority. Re-read your favorite gratitude thought several times a day. Keep your thoughts on thankfulness and you’ll be planting positive seeds instead of worry weeds.

I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. It is surprising how contented one can be with nothing definite - only a sense of existence. My breath is sweet to me. O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches. No run on my bank can drain it, for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment.
Henry David Thoreau

Gratitude and wonder are two of the most empowering and healing perspectives.

Gratitude helps us to return to our natural state of joyfulness, where we notice what's right instead of what's wrong. It makes us feel complete, that we have everything we need, at least in this moment.
M. J. Ryan

Happiness is in itself a kind of gratitude.
Joseph Wood Krutch

Be grateful for whatever comes because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.

Joy is the simplest form of gratitude.

God gave you 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say thank you?
William Arthur Ward

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

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
William Arthur Ward

Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense out of the past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
Melody Beattie

Gratitude helps you to grow and expand; gratitude brings joy and laughter into your life and into the lives of all those around you.
Eileen Caddy

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.
G. K. Chesterton

In our daily lives, we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but the gratefulness that makes us happy.
Albert Clarke

Gratitude, like faith, is a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger it grows, and the more power you have to use it on your behalf. If you do not practice gratefulness, its benefaction will go unnoticed, and your capacity to draw on its gifts will be diminished. To be grateful is to find blessings in everything, This is the most powerful attitude to adopt, for there are blessings in everything.
Alan Cohen

If the only prayer you say in your life is ‘thank you,' that would suffice.
Meister Eckhart

Here is my wish for you and every other child, woman, and man on the face of the earth: Spend one week saying only kind, caring things to yourself. Say thank you at least ten times an hour, direct five toward yourself and five to the world at large. Compliment yourself (and others) each time an effort is made. Notice all the wonderful qualities and characteristics about yourself and those around you. One week. You will never go back. And your whole life will be a glorious meditation.
Cheri Huber

If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.
Harold Kushner

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
Marcel Proust

I live in the space of thankfulness – and I have been rewarded a million times over for it. I started out giving thanks for small things, and the more thankful I became, the more my bounty increased. That's because what you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it. Opportunities, relationships, even money flowed my way when I learned to be grateful no matter what happened in my life.
Oprah Winfrey
