THANKFULNESS
[ Also see Gifts Gratitude Harvest Obligation Thanksgiving Day ]

Thank you for nothing.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra),
        Don Quixote (pt. I, bk. III, ch. VIII)   BUY VARYING HARE USED BOOK  

When I'm not thank'd at all, I'm thank'd enough:
  I've done my duty, and I've done no more.
      - Henry Fielding,
        The Life and Death of Tom Thumb the Great
         (act I, sc. 3)

I am glad that he thanks God for anything.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature"),
        Boswell's Life of Johnson

Our whole life should speak forth our thankfulness; every condition and place we are in should be a witness of our thankfulness. This will make the times and places we live in better for us. When we ourselves are monuments of God's mercy, it is fit we should be patterns of His praises, and leave monuments to others. We should think it given to us to do something better than to live in. We live not to live: our life is not the end of itself, but the praise of the giver.
      - R. Libbes

To receive honestly is the best thanks for a good thing.
      - George MacDonald, Mary Marston (ch. V)

Your bounty is beyond my speaking;
  But though my mouth be dumb, my heart shall thank you.
      - Nicholas Rowe, Jane Shore (act II, sc. 1)

Evermore thanks, the exchequer of the poor.
      - William Shakespeare

Thanks to men
  Of noble minds, is honorable meed.
      - William Shakespeare

The poorest service is repaid with thanks.
      - William Shakespeare

Thou thought'st to help me; and such thanks I give
  As one near death to those that wish him live.
      - William Shakespeare

I cannot give thee less, to be called grateful.
  Thou thought'st to help me, and such thanks I give
    As one near death to those that wish him live.
      - William Shakespeare,
        All's Well That Ends Well
         (King of France at II, i)

Let never day nor night unhallowed pass
  But still remember what the Lord hath done.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (King Henry at II, i)

Let it stamp wrinkles in her brow of youth,
  With cadent tears fret channels in her cheeks,
    Turn all her mother's pains and benefits
      To laughter and contempt, that she may feel
        How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is
          To have a thankless child.
      - William Shakespeare, King Lear
         (King Lear at I, iv)

Thanks, oftenest obtrusive.
      - William Shenstone

From too much love of living,
  From hope and fear set free,
    We thank with brief thanksgiving
      Whatever gods may be
        That no life lives forever;
          That dead men rise up never;
            That even the weariest river
              Winds somewhere safe to sea.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne,
        Garden of Prosperine
