Quotes – Famous Quotes – Thanksgiving Quotes

IF our hearts were tuned to praise, we should see causes unnumbered, which we had never seen before, for thanking God. Thanksgiving is spoken of as a “sacrifice well pleasing unto God.” It is a far higher offering than prayer. When we pray we ask for things which we want; or we tell out our sorrows. We pray, in order to bring down blessings upon ourselves; we praise, because our hearts overflow with love to God, and we must speak it out to Him. It flows out of pure love, and then the love goes back to our hearts, and warms them anew, and revives and quickens them.
–Priscilla Maurice

People unfit for freedom – who cannot do much with it – are hungry for power. The desire for freedom is an attribute of a “have” type of self. It says: leave me alone and I shall grow, learn, and realize my capacities. The desire for power is basically an attribute of a “have not” type of self.
– Eric Hoffer

Quotes – Famous Quotes – Drinking from the Saucer
I’ve never made a fortune, and I’ll never make one now.
But it really doesn’t matter, ‘cause I’m happy anyhow.
As I go along my journey, I’m reaping better than I’ve sown.
I’m drinking from the saucer, ‘cause my cup has overflowed

I don’t have a lot of riches, and sometimes the going’s rough.
But while I’ve friends to love, I think I’m rich enough.
I’ll just thank God for blessings that his mercy has bestowed.
I’m drinking from the saucer, ‘cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage, when the way grows steep and rough
I’ll not ask for other blessings, I’m already blessed enough
May I never be too busy to help bear another’s load
Then I’ll be drinking from the saucer, ‘cause my cup has overflowed.
