~Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world. ~ John Milton

~Gratitude is the sign of noble souls. ~ Aesop

~The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

~Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. ~ Melody Beattie

~Gratitude doesn’t change the scenery.  It merely washes clean the glass you look through so you can clearly see the colors. ~ Richelle E Goodrich

~It’s not that life has been easy, perfect, or exactly as I expected. I just choose to be happy and grateful no matter how it turns out! ~ Unknown

We can all be noble souls, who love the ordinary miracles and exquisite art present in our everyday lives, appreciate all we have instead of longing for what we don’t, see clearly what it important, and chose to be happy.  We can hold on to gratitude if we have already made it a habit; we can cultivate the attitude if it’s currently elusive.  Gratitude is more valuable in life than an expensive education.  And it’s free.
