thankfulness

A Quote by Norman Vincent Peale on art, attitude, creativity, facts, gratitude, kindness, laws, practice, and thankfulness

. . . a basic law: the more you practice the art of thankfulness, the more you have to be thankful for. This, of course, is a fact. Thankfulness does tend to reproduce in kind. The attitude of gratitude revitalizes the entire mental process by activating all other attitudes, thus stimulating creativity.

A Quote by Howard B. Haines on age, business, christianity, decisions, emotion, experience, giving, guidance, individuality, life, loneliness, love, nature, needs, people, prayer, principles, reality, thankfulness, and understanding

It is obvious . . . that there are many lay people who can counsel more effectively than the minister can in such areas as adjusting to widowhood, coming to terms with advancing age, bringing principle to bear upon business decisions, because they have experience in these fields which the minister does not personally have. At the very least, they can add a note of reality to what the minister offers. In many cases, the group takes up where the individual counseling left off, supplementing it or even eliminating it entirely. I have been repeatedly thankful that a group was available to give steady guidance to those who had made a fresh start in Christian living, but who still had a long way to go; this has been especially true in cases of loneliness, moderate emotional instability, inability to understand others, and need of continued guidance in the use of prayer and the Bible and the accepting and giving of love. In the nature of the case, no amount of individual counseling can fully deal with these needs.

A Quote by Hannah More on blessings, goodness, humility, reflection, thankfulness, and uncertainty

There are three requisites to the proper enjoyment of earthly blessings: a thankful reflection on the goodness of the giver; a deep sense of our own unworthiness; and a recollection of the uncertainty of our long possessing them. The first will make us grateful; the second, humble; and the third, moderate.

A Quote by Grenville Kleiser on character, destiny, good, joy, life, opportunity, privilege, thankfulness, and work

Be grateful for the joy of life. Be glad for the privilege of work. Be thankful for the opportunity to give and serve. Good work is the great character-builder, the sweetener of life, the maker of destiny.

A Quote by G. Sarton on beauty, dignity, duty, effort, generations, genius, greatness, history, humanity, humility, mathematics, men, pride, privilege, study, thankfulness, and wonder

The main duty of the historian of mathematics, as well as his fondest privilege, is to explain the humanity of mathematics, to illustrate its greatness, beauty and dignity, and to describe how the incessant efforts and accumulated genius of many generations have built up that magnificent monument, the object of our most legitimate pride as men, and of our wonder, humility and thankfulness, as individuals. The study of the history of mathematics will not make better mathematicians but gentler ones, it will enrich their minds, mellow their hearts, and bring out their finer qualities.

A Quote by Dr. Albert Schweitzer on life, people, spirit, thankfulness, and time

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
