|Thanksgiving may be our most old-fashioned holiday. Gratitude itself seems out of date at a time when so many people feel “entitled” to whatever they get — and indignant that they didnt get more.
– Thomas Sowell (1930-)
|The gratitude of every home in our Island, in our Empire, and indeed throughout the world, except in the abodes of the guilty, goes out to the British airmen who, undaunted by odds, unwearied in their constant challenge and mortal danger, are turning the tide of the World War by their prowess and their devotion. Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few
– Winston Churchill (Nov 30, 1874-Jan 24, 1965)
|Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
