Wonderful Quotes About Gratitude

Welcome to our collection of quotes and picture quotes on gratitude. We hope you find them fruitful to ponder and that you share them with others.

The words gratitude and grateful derive from the Medieval Latin words "gratitudo" and "gratus," which mean “thankfulness” and “pleasing.” Gratitude is the quality of being thankful -- it indicates a willingness and preparedness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. It is something given without obligation - it is not owed per se but voluntarily given anyway.

Many feel there are 3 stages of gratitude: 1. Recognition, 2. Acknowlegement, and finally 3. Appreciation.
