With the Thanksgiving holiday approaching, it’s the perfect time to reflect on what you have to be grateful for. At Girls on the Run, we encourage everyone to express joy, optimism and gratitude through our words, thoughts and actions. Here are eight quotes about gratitude that are great reminders to express what we are grateful for in our lives.


“The more grateful I am, the more beauty I see.” - Mary Davis

“This is a wonderful day. I’ve never seen this one before.” - Maya Angelou

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them.” - John F. Kennedy

“Gratitude unlocks all that’s blocking us from really feeling truthful, really feeling authentic and vulnerable and happy.” - Gabrielle Bernstein

“Gratitude helps us to see what is there instead of what isn’t.” - Annette Bridges

“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” - Marcel Proust
