273 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.

Longer Version:

Every blessing ignored becomes a curse. I don't want anything else in life. But you are forcing me to look at wealth and at horizons I have never known. Now that I have seen them, and now that I see how immense my possibilities are, I'm going to feel worse than I did before you arrived. Because I know the things I should be able to accomplish, and I don't want to do so.

Longer Version:

There is always something to be grateful for. Pure love has no conditions or boundaries. Love does not restrain itself or hold back. Love gives all the time and doesn't ask for anything in return. Love is a continuous flow without any limits. And all of this is inside you.


--Henry Ward Beecher

Longer Version:

Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul; and the heart of man knoweth none more fragrant. While its opponent, ingratitude, is a deadly weed; not only poisonous in itself but impregnating the very atmosphere in which it grows, with fetid vapors.

Longer Version:

The root of joy is gratefulness...It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful.


--Mary Davis
--Plato
--Ralph H. Blum
--Rita Mae Brown
--Charles Dickens
--Connor Chalfant
--Eckhart Tolle
--Thomas Merton

Longer Version:

To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us -- and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him.
Gratitude therefore takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the goodness of God. For the grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference.

Longer Version:

Gratitude is a mark of a noble soul and a refined character. We like to be around those who are grateful. They tend to brighten all around them. They make others feel better about themselves. They tend to be more humble, more joyful, more likable.
