“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above”
James 1:17, ESV

"To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything he has given us-- and he has given us everything. Every breath that we draw is a gift of his love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from him.”
Thomas Merton

“Give thanks in all circumstances...”
The Apostle Paul in I Thessalonians 5:18, ESV

"You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.”
Writer G. K. Chesterton

"Father, I thank you that you have heard me.
I knew that you always hear me."
Jesus in John 11:41-42, NIV

“The fundamental response on our part to God’s good gifts is gratitude, grounding even faith itself. Gratitude lies at the foundation of Christian existence. From this, everything flows.”
Nicholas P. Wolterstorff, Educating for Life:
Reflections on Christian Teaching and Learning

“[A] genuine expression of emotion is one which is not performed as a means to some further end.”
Peter Goldie The Emotions: A Philosophical Exploration (Kindle Locations 1757-1758
