It is perfectly monstrous the way people go about, nowadays, saying things against one behind one's back that are absolutely and entirely true.
Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess.
One should always play fairly when one has the winning cards.
If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, 'thank you,' that would suffice. Meister Eckhart
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. Melody Beattie
If a fellow isn't thankful for what he's got, he isn't likely to be thankful for what he's going to get. Frank A. Clark
None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy. Fred De Witt Van Amburgh
Who does not thank for little will not thank for much. Estonian Poverb
Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced, discharged and used up in order to exist at all. William Faulkner
Thanksgiving after all, is a word of action. W.J. Cameron
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. Unknown
To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven. Johannes A. Gaertner
A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues. Cicero
God has two dwellings; one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart. Izaak Walton
Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart. Seneca
O Lord that lends me life, Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness. William Shakespeare
Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don't unravel. Unknown
Gratitude is the sign of noble souls. Aesop
God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say "thank you?" William A. Ward
Known for writing in unconventional time signatures, the Dave Brubeck Quartet was/is widely regarded as the last and likely best of the "Cool Jazz" groups.
The cool style of play was forced upon Brubeck after a neck and spinal cord injury suffered in a diving, maybe surfing accident made it difficult for him to play the fast one note runs that were popular among jazz pianists of the day, forcing him into a slower style of play that featured more complex rhythms and harmonies along with chunkier revolving chords.
From their classic album Time Out, this is the Dave Brubeck Quartet, Dave Brubeck on Piano, his longtime partner Paul Desmond on the Alto Sax, Eugene Wright on the upright bass and Joe Morello on the drums performing their international hit in 5/4 time.
