Famous Thanksgiving Quote of the Day – Gratitude

November 25, 2008

“To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action.

Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude.”  ~ Albert Schweitzer
