Some quotes for American Thanksgiving

Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds. ~Theodore Roosevelt

...all which we behold
Is full of blessings...
~William Wordsworth, lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey, on revisiting the banks of the Wye during a tour, 1798 July 13th

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. ~Thornton Wilder
Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way. ~Native American Saying

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!
~Grandpa Jones

Nothing is more honourable than a grateful heart. ~Seneca

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