“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. ”– G.K. Chesterton
Old Man on the Island
An old man had lived most of his life on what was considered to be one of the loveliest islands in the world.
Now that he had returned to spend his retirement years in the big city, someone said to him:
"It must have been wonderful to live for so many years on an island that is considered one of the wonders of the world."
The old man gave that some thought, then said, "Well, to tell you the truth, if I had known it was so famous, I'd have looked at it."
~ Anthony de Mello
“Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live.” – Jackie Windspear
“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land, there is no other life but this.” ~Henry David Thoreau
“Be grateful for the tiny details of your life and make room for unexpected and beautiful blessings.”
P.S:What if, we could be more aware and appreciative of the many blessings we so tend to take for granted in our lives ?
