Charles Spurgeon

Before you go out into the world, wash your face in the clear crystal of praise. Bury each yesterday in the fine linen and spices of thankfulness.

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice. I can choose to be grateful even when my emotions and feelings are still steeped in hurt and resentment. It is amazing how many occasions present themselves in which I can choose gratitude instead of a complaint.
— Henri Nouwen
Grant me daily the grace of gratitude, to be thankful for all my many gifts, and so be freed from artificial needs, that I might lead a joyful, simple life.
— Edward Hays A Book of Wonders
When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.
— Maya Angelou
We are never more than one grateful thought away from peace of heart.
— David Steindl-Rast
If I can’t be grateful for what I have now, what makes me think I’ll be grateful if I have more.
— Unknown
Gratitude places you in the energy field of plentitude. Perceiving life in a consciousness of gratitude is literally stepping into another dimension of living. Suddenly the seeming ordinariness of your days takes on a divine sparkle.
— Michael Beckwith
There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy.
— Ralph Blum
How many gifts and graces You have given me! How many favors You have fed me from your hand! I look for your love in all directions, then suddenly its blessing burns in me.
— Rabia Al-Adawiyya translated by Andrew Harvey
