 << Prev Page    Displaying page 4 of 4
[ Also see Appreciation Ingratitude Kindness Obligation Pleasing Thankfulness ]

Now the good gods forbid
  That our renowned Rome, whose gratitude
    Towards her deserved children is enrolled
      In Jove's own book, like an unnatural dam
        Should now eat up her own!
      - William Shakespeare, Coriolanus
         (Menenius at III, i)

Let but the commons hear this testament,
  Which (pardon me) I do not mean to read,
    And they would go and kiss dead Caesar's wounds
      And dip their napkins in his sacred blood;
        Yea, beg a hair of him for memory,
          And dying, mention it within their wills,
            Bequeathing it as a rich legacy
              Upon their issue.
      - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
         (Antony at III, ii)

He who has a soul wholly devoid of gratitude should set his soul to learn of his body; for all the parts of that minister to one another.
      - Bishop Robert South

Look over the whole creation, and you shall see that the band, or cement, that holds together all the parts of this great and glorious fabric is gratitude.
      - Bishop Robert South

The grateful person, being still the most severe exactor of himself, not only confesses, but proclaims his debt.
      - Bishop Robert South

Thankfulness is the tune of angels.
      - Edmund Spenser

Those who make us happy are always thankful to us for being so. Their gratitude is the reward of their own benefits.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

Into the well which supplies thee with water, cast no stones.
      - The Talmud

From David learn to give thanks in everything. Every furrow in the book of Psalms is sown with seeds of thanksgiving.
      - Jeremy Taylor

God is pleased with no music below so much as the thanksgiving songs of relieved widows and supported orphans; of rejoicing, comforted, and thankful persons.
      - Jeremy Taylor

We can set our deeds to the music of a grateful heart, and seek to round our lives into a hymn--the melody of which will be recognized by all who come in contact with us, and the power of which shall not be evanescent, like the voice of the singer, but perennial, like the music of the spheres.
      - William Mackergo Taylor

How grateful are we--how touched a frank and generous heart is for a kind word extended to us in our pain! The pressure of a tender hand nerves a man for an operation, and cheers him for the dreadful interview with the surgeon.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

Did you ever think of the reason why the Psalms of David have come, like winged angels, down across all the realms and ages--why they make the key-note of grateful piety in every Christian's soul, wherever he lives? Why? Because they are so full of gratitude. "Oh, that men would praise the Lord for His goodness and for His wonderful works to the children of men!"
      - A.A. Willets

I've heard of hearts unkind, kind deeds
  With coldness still returning;
    Alas! the gratitude of men
      Hath often left me mourning.
      - William Wordsworth, Simon Lee
