Thanksgiving Thoughts, Part II

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget
that the highest appreciation is not to utter words,
but to live by them.  
~John Fitzgerald Kennedy


For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thanksgiving comes to us out of the prehistoric dimness,
universal to all ages and all faiths.  At whatever straws we must grasp,
there is always a time for gratitude and new beginnings. 
~J. Robert Moskin

Let us remember that, as much has been given us,
much will be expected from us, and that true homage
comes from the heart as well as from the lips,
and shows itself in deeds. 
~Theodore Roosevelt

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

On Thanksgiving Day we acknowledge our dependence. 
~William Jennings Bryan

Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. 
They are consumed in twelve minutes.  Half-times take twelve minutes. 
This is not coincidence. 
~Erma Bombeck
