A Universal Truth

“Enter into [the Lord’s] gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.” Psalm 100:4-5, Old Testament 

 “…and worship God, in whatsoever place ye may be in, in spirit and in truth; and that ye live in thanksgiving daily, for the many mercies and blessings which he doth bestow upon you.” Alma 34:38b, Book of Mormon 

“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.” ~Buddha

“A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues.”  ~Cicero

“It is a fine thing when a believer praises and thanks God if good comes to him, and praises God and shows endurance if smitten by affliction. The believer is rewarded for (every good action), even for the morsel he raises to his wife’s mouth.” Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 537, Qu’ran

“O Lord that lends me life,
Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.”
~William Shakespeare

“Thanksgiving comes to us out of the prehistoric dimness, universal to all ages and all faiths.  At whatever straws we must grasp, there is always a time for gratitude and new beginnings.”  ~J. Robert Moskin
