“If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.” —Rabbi Harold Kushner

“Develop an attitude of gratitude and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step towards achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”  —Brian Tracy

“You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.”  —Sarah Ban Breathnach

“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. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”  —Melody Beattie

“When beginning an exercise routine, one might want a baseline from which to start their fitness improvement. Starting a practice of gratitude should be no different. Knowing one’s current level of gratitude gives this same type of baseline from which to strive for improvement. Gratitude is a lifestyle, and practicing builds the mental muscles that show up as positive emotions.”  —Positive Psychology
