THE GEM 16 NOV 2018 : I WOULD MAINTAIN THAT THANKS ARE THE HIGHEST FORM OF THOUGHT; AND THAT GRATITUDE IS HAPPINESS DOUBLED BY WONDER.” G.K. CHESTERTON

“Our society is afflicted by a spirit of thoughtless arrogance unbecoming those who have been so magnificently blessed. How grateful we should be for the bounties we enjoy. Absence of gratitude is the mark of the narrow, uneducated mind. It bespeaks a lack of knowledge and the ignorance of self-sufficiency. It expresses itself in ugly egotism and frequently in wanton mischief…. 
Where there is appreciation, there is courtesy, there is concern for the rights and property of others. Without appreciation, there is arrogance and evil. 
Where there is gratitude, there is humility, as opposed to pride.”

Gordon B. Hinckley
