“Wear gratitude like a cloak, and it will feed every corner of your life.”

It’s always important to reflect on all of the blessings you have. When gathered around the Thanksgiving table, most families reserve at least a minute or two to express thankful they are and why. And with good reason: Gratitude is something that we should be able to express on any occasion—no matter how big or small. So don’t reserve these thoughtful messages for the fourth Thursday in November. If you’re excited about the great man your friend is marrying, write something a little special in her wedding card and cap it off with a sweet wedding quote.

Perhaps you have a dear friend going through a hard time. He would probably appreciate hearing a few kind best friend quotes. But sometimes, the right words escape us—or maybe we never really had them in the first place. That’s why keeping a list of gratitude quotes from esteemed writers, poets, and thinkers (and even Bible verses about being thankful) on-hand is so important. You never know when those words might provide comfort—and you might even find you need to read a few quotes about strength when life throws some trials and tribulations your way too.

John F. Kennedy
