Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you won’t have to hunt for happiness.

If we do not feel grateful for what we already have, what makes us think we’d be happy with more?

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

Stop focusing on how stressed you are and remember how blessed you are. It could be so much worse.

A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot and realize how blessed you are for what you have.

It is not joy that makes us grateful. It is gratitude that makes us joyful.

The secret of happiness is to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles.

Always give without remembering and always receive without forgetting.

Learn to appreciate what you have before time makes you appreciate what you had.

The trick is to be grateful when your mood is high and graceful when it is low.

In daily life we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy.

Joy is the simplest form of gratitude.

Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don’t unravel.

No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.

Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.

There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle, or you can live as if everything is a miracle.

If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.

Give thanks for a little and you will find a lot.

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.

Praise is like sunlight to the human spirit: we cannot flower and grow without it.
