Thanksgiving Thoughts

With Thanksgiving a few days away let’s take a look at some thoughts from men and women about being thankful.

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

“If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share.” W. Clement Stone

“The unthankful heart discovers no mercies; but the thankful heart will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings.”  Henry Ward Beecher

“No one who achieves success does so without the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.”  Alfred North Whitehead
