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

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.  Thornton Wilder

To quote Dave Brubeck

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.

Take Five.
