"Being Thankful"
Your Success Thought for the Week of November 22, 2006

Whether you are off to a loving holiday celebration this week, or one where you anticipate challenges, some thought provoking quotes on ‘gratitude’ and ‘self-restraint’ may be your ticket to success.

At the very least, if you pick one of the following quotes to ponder over the coming few days it will send you into your Thanksgiving celebration with a new attitude, perhaps one of kindness, acceptance, and yes, appreciation. Let go of any mishaps of the past. This is a brand new celebration.


At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. Albert Schweitzer

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

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others. Cicero

The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated. William James

Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul. Henry Ward Beecher


I have always repented speaking, but never of holding my tongue. Xenocrates

Self-control is the chief element in self-respect and the chief element in courage. Thucydides

Remember, there is always a limit to self -indulgence, but none to self-restraint. Mahatma Gandhi

Some people are molded by their admiration, others by their hostilities. Elizabeth Bowen

There is little that can withstand a man who can conquer himself. Louis XIV

I wish you a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving Holiday and if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, I wish you one of the finest Thursdays you’ve had in a very long time.

Enjoy your discoveries!
