Gretchen gave me the word for today...and that is Gratitude....
Lots of good ones...
Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.
One must learn to be grateful for one's own findings. (Eugene Delacroix)
The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude. (Friedrich
I want to thank anyone who spends part of their day creating. I don't care
if it's a book, a film, a painting, a dance, a piece of theater, a piece of
music. Anybody who spends part of their day sharing their experience with
us. I think this world would be unlivable without art. Thank you for
inspiring me. (Steven Soderbergh)
I have walked this earth for 30 years, and, out of gratitude, want to leave
some souvenir. (Vincent van Gogh)
