~ Seamus Heaney: “‘I felt gratitude, therefore I believed.’ I have always been deeply thankful for those words by the poet, Czeslaw Milosz. There is universal gra (Irish for love) in that gratitude, and even though ‘believed’ is without a grammatical object, it’s still an act of faith and a defiance of nihilism.”
~ AJ Cronin:”Gratitude is something of which none of us can give too much. For on the smiles, the thanks we give… our neighbours build their philosophy of life.”
~Micheal O’Siadhail: “Thinking and thanking differ by one small vowel.”
Three Thoughts from The Thank You Book, a gratitude journal in aid of the Irish Hospice Foundation. (For which, and so much more, multitudinous Thank You’s to Kathy Dillon). It’s a beautifully illustrated notebook and there are also cards, all available HERE, with proceeds going directly to supporting hospice work.
