Thanksgiving Quotes 1 - 2
The unthankful heart... discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!
Henry Ward Beecher

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice.
Meister Eckhart

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.
H.U. Westermayer

Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude.

Upon a day apart,
To praise the Lord with feast and song
In thankfulness of heart.
Arthur Guiterman

Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action.
W.J. Cameron

For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Praise God even when you don't understand what He is doing.
Henry Jacobsen

An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day.
Irv Kupcinet

Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut up in a single day.
Robert Caspar Lintner

Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow.
Edward Sandford Martin

Our rural ancestors, with little blest,
Patient of labour when the end was rest,
Indulged the day that housed their annual grain,
With feasts, and off'rings, and a thankful strain.
Alexander Pope

True thanksgiving means that we need to thank God for what He has done for us, and not to tell Him what we have done for Him.
George R. Hendrick

Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence.
Erma Bombeck

Got no checkbooks, got no banks,
Still, I'd like to express my thanks.
I've got the sun in the morning
And the moon at night.
Irving Berlin

Once, when my feet were bare, and I had not the means of obtaining shoes I came to the chief of Kufah in a state of much dejection, and saw there a man who had no feet. I returned thanks to God and acknowledged his mercies, and endured my want of shoes with patience.
Sadi
The Gulistan.

Thank God every day when you get up that you have something to do that day which must be done whether you like it or not. Being forced to work and forced to do your best will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues which the idle will never know.
Basil Carpenter

Now thank we all our God, With hearts and hands and voices;
Who wondrous things hath done, In whom this world rejoices.
Who, from our mother's arms, Hath led us on our way,
With countless gifts of love, And still is ours today.
Martin Rinkart

Nothing purchased can come close to the renewed sense of gratitude for having family and friends.
Courtland Milloy

It is delightfully easy to thank God for the grace we ourselves have received, but it requires great grace to thank God always for the grace given to others.
James Smith

Praise is the best auxiliary to prayer; and he who most bears in mind what has been done for him by God will be most emboldened to supplicate fresh gifts from above.
Henry Melville

Remember God's bounty in the year. String the pearls of His favor. Hide the dark parts, except so far as they are breaking out in light! Give this one day to thanks, to joy, to gratitude!
Henry Ward Beecher

Gratitude is the heart's memory.
French Proverb

If we meet someone who owes us thanks, we right away remember that. But how often do we meet someone to whom we owe thanks without remembering that?
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Grace isn't a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It's a way to live.
Jackie Windspear

No longer forward nor behind
I look in hope or fear;
But, grateful, take the good I find,
The best of now and here.
John Greenleaf Whittier

A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues.
Cicero

Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.
Seneca

He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.
J.A. Shedd

I love Thanksgiving turkey. It's the only time in Los Angeles that you see natural breasts.
Arnold Schwarzenegger

Will Carleton

There is one day that is ours. Thanksgiving Day is the one day that is purely American.
O. Henry

Thanksgiving comes to us out of the prehistoric dimness, universal to all ages and all faiths. At whatever straws we must grasp, there is always a time for gratitude and new beginnings.
J. Robert Moskin

You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.
Tom Wilson

We can always find something to be thankful for, no matter what may be the burden of our wants, or the special subject of our petitions.
Albert Barnes

May your stuffing be tasty, may your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious, may your pies take the prize,
May your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs!
