Quotes on Gratitude

"As gratitude is absent or disappears, rebellion often enters and fills the vacuum... I refer to rebellion against moral cleanliness, beauty, decency, honesty, reverence, and respect for parental authority. A grateful heart is a beginning of greatness. It is an expression of humility. It is a foundation for the development of such virtues as prayer, faith, courage, contentment, happiness, love and well-being." - James Faust

"There isn't a word in all the English language with more magic in it than the word gratitude. Love makes fertile the soil for things to blossom and to grow, and love begins with gratitude."
- Geraldine Anderson

"Thankfulness is measured by the number of words; gratitude is measured by the nature of our actions." - David McKay

"It has been said that the sin of ingratitude is more serious than the sin of revenge. With revenge, we return evil for evil, but with ingratitude, we return evil for good." - Eugene Hansen

"Think to thank. In these three words are the finest capsule course for a happy marriage, a formula for enduring friendship, and a pattern for personal happiness."- Thomas Monson
