Let us be thankful for the fools. But for them the rest of us could not succeed.
- Mark Twain
The proximity of a desirable thing tempts one to overindulgence. On that path lies danger.
Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.
If you cannot avoid overeating at a feast, leave the table and find relief by vomiting.
-The Wisdom of Ben Sira, 2nd Century B.C
The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep's throat, for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty.
To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action. Nothing that is done for you is a matter of course. Everything originates in a will for the good, which is directed at you. Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude.
