Christopher Morley

There is only one success . . . to be able to spend your life in your own way.

Walter Scott

When dark December glooms the day,
And takes our autumn joys away...

George Crane

Appreciative words are the most powerful force for good on the earth.

W. C. Jones

The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others’ burdens, easing others’ loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of the holidays.

William Blake

The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest. 

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

We ought to make the moments notes
   Of happy, glad Thanksgiving;
The hours and days a silent phrase
   Of music we are living.
And so the theme should swell and grow
   As weeks and months pass o’er us,
And rise sublime at this good time,

A grand Thanksgiving chorus.


A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues.
