A Quote by St. Nikolai Velimirovic on god, christianity, gratitude, thankfulness, shame, love, evil, peace, and spirituality

Let us be ashamed of our slowness in thanking God when He gives, and of our quickness in grumbling at Him when He takes away.        Saint Nikolai Velimirovic

A Quote by Benjamin Hoff on presence, appreciation, gratitude, attitude, and tao

"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast? said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
"It's the same thing," he said.

A Quote by Sarah Ban Breathnach on waiting, peace, grace, awareness, abundance, and gratitude

Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.

A Quote by John Muir on death, exploration, dying, happiness, gratitude, and life

I never have held death in contempt, though in the course of my explorations I have oftentimes felt that to meet one's fate on a noble mountain, or in the heart of a glacier, would be blessed as compared with death from disease, or from some shabby lowland accident. But the best death, quick and crystal-pure, set so glaringly open before us, is hard enough to face, even though we feel gratefully sure that we have already had happiness enough for a dozen lives.

John Muir (1838 - 1914)

A Quote by Cecelia Ahern on questioning and gratitude

"What is it with people these days?" he hisses...  "In my day, something just was.  None of this analysis a hundred times over.  None of these college courses with people graduating with degrees in Whys and Hows and Becauses.  Sometimes, love, you just need to forget all of those words and enroll in a little lesson called 'Thank You.'"

A Quote by David Spangler on gratitude, appreciation, change, transformation, terrorism, wars, energy, peace, and survival

It may seem hard to extend our gratefulness and appreciation to the time in which we live and the challenges it presents-to financial crisis, global climate change, terrorism, wars, energy depletion, and any other disasters looming on the horizon.  It would be much easier to appreciate an era of good feeling, peace and calm stability!  But difficult times are also times of growth, of new insights and opportunities, of creativity, and of emergence.

Bees sip honey from flowers and hum their thanks when they leave.

A Quote by Wayne Dyer on ego, gratitude, god, source, intention, and achievement

All emanates from Source! ...You're not this body and its accomplishments. You are the observer. Notice it all; and be grateful for the abilities you've been given, the motivation to achieve, and the stuff you've accumulated. But give all the credit to the power of intention, which brought you into existence...

Wayne Dyer
