Gratitude should be continuous attitude, not an occasional incident.
Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone. There is no such thing as gratitude unexpressed. If it is unexpressed, it is plain, old-fashioned ingratitude. Gratitude is the memory of the heart. The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you, not wronged you. If you have lived, take thankfully the past. Grace isn't a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It's a way to live. Count your many blessings, because if you count all your assets, you always show a profit. You are wise to not grieve for what you do not have but rejoice in what you do have. Gratitude is the best attitude. If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness. It will change your life mightily. Gratitude is the least of the virtues, but ingratitude is the worst of vices. If you are not thankful for little, you will not be thankful for much. Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul. As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
