Thanksgiving Quotes


He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart
:: J. A. Shedd ::

Let us remember that, as much has been given us,
much will be expected from us,
and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips,
and shows itself in deeds.
::Theodore Roosevelt::

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise;
be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good...
::Psalm 100:4::

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues,
but the parent of all the others.
::Cicero::

Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men;
but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude.

::E.P. Powell::

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget
that the highest appreciation is not to utter words,
but to live by them.

::John Fitzgerald Kennedy::

Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year;
to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow.

::Edward Sandford Martin::
