10 Quotes to Inspire an Attitude of Gratitude

10 Quotes to Inspire an Attitude of Gratitude

We live in a world where so many people pretend to be somebody they’re not. Saddled by society’s expectations, we try to “perform” in accordance so that we appear “normal.” With the never-ending onslaught of people spewing opinions and photos of what life should look like on every social medium, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to just be grateful in our own lives. We find something new, and often mundane, to complain about at every turn, but guess what? Nobody likes a Debbie Downer. November is National Gratitude Month and below are some of my favorite quotes on gratitude to inspire positive thinking.

 

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

“We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.”  ― John F. Kennedy

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

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” — Albert Einstein

“We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.” — Cynthia Ozick

“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?” — William A. Ward

“There are two kinds of gratitude: The sudden kind we feel for what we take; the larger kind we feel for what we give.” — Edwin Arlington Robinson

“I hate ingratitude more in a man than lying, vainness, babbling, drunkenness, or any taint of vice whose strong corruption inhabits our frail blood.” – Shakespeare

“Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.” – Voltaire

“Dance. Smile. Giggle. Marvel. TRUST. HOPE. LOVE. WISH. BELIEVE. Most of all, enjoy every moment of the journey, and appreciate where you are at this moment instead of always focusing on how far you have to go.” – Mandy Hale

Appreciate what you have and be kind to those around you! Spread joy, love and happiness always.
