Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice. I can choose to be grateful even when my emotions and feelings are still steeped in hurt and resentment. It is amazing how many occasions present themselves in which I can choose gratitude instead of a complaint.
Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
To all who wish to think, to all who desire to dream and live through the sunset beneath the crest of a rolling ocean wave, and to all who search for happiness and spring after winter, to all who can not express their thoughts and their anger, to all sensible, delicate persons, I dedicate my art.
Look at your feet. You are standing in the sky. When we think of the sky, we tend to look up, but the sky actually begins at the earth.
If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.

When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.
