Thought for the day – ‘Blessings’

 

  • Certain of our blessings can never change. The important things of life will not perish. In whatever brave new world emerges from this chaos, homes will be created, good deeds will be done and sacrifices will be made. God will be reverently worshipped in many a church and chapel.  Hospitals, libraries and colleges will be organized and endowed. The greatest things will endure – faith, hope and love, and the moral nature in man. – Claude M. Fuess
  • Reflect that life, like every other blessing, derives its value from its use alone. – Samuel Johnson
  • Blessings we enjoy daily; and for the most of them, because they be so common, most men forget to pay their praise. – Izaak Walton
  • Let me tell you that every misery I miss is a new blessing. – Izaak Walton
  • Nothing raises the price of a blessing like its removal; whereas, it was its continuance which should have taught us its value. – H. Moore
  • Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many: not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some. – Dickens
  • Health, beauty, vigour, riches, and all the other things called goods, operate equally as evils to the vicious and unjust, as they do as benefits to the just.  – Plato
  • How blessings brighten as they take their flight! – Young
