Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
Only the educated are free.
You never know what motivates you.
If you can dream it, you can do it.
Never complain and never explain.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
Do not weep do not wax indignant. Understand.
The dog that trots about finds a bone.
When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.
Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply from good books - especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day.
When you practice gratefulness, there is a sense of respect toward others.
Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light.
Appreciation is the highest form of prayer, for it acknowledges the presence of good wherever you shine the light of your thankful thoughts.
I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose.
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!
Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns I am thankful that thorns have roses.
I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.
Keep your eyes open to your mercies. The man who forgets to be thankful has fallen asleep in life.
