131 Gratitude Quotes to Make You Feel Grateful

the best thank you quotes

If you are grateful for your life's blessings and want to thank God for them, you can express your thanks in prayers and deeds. Spend a few moments every night to say a small "thank you" to God: not just for your successes; offer your thanks even when you fail. Failures are the stepping stones to success. Ask God to guide you through your difficulties so that you emerge strong. Find your inner strength by focusing your energies on your goal.

These "thank you, God" quotes are more than expressions of gratitude. They inspire you to have humility and sincerity. They remind you that you are lucky to have your desires fulfilled and that you should not take your blessings for granted. Many others, though not as lucky as you, have overcome their difficulties and continued on their path. Fortune favors the brave, but don't let your achievements make you overconfident or ungrateful. Stay humble; a small mistake can wipe out your fortunes.

"Our worldly successes cannot be guaranteed, but our ability to achieve spiritual success is entirely up to us, thanks to the grace of God. The best advice I know is to give those worldly things your best but never your all—reserve the ultimate hope for the only one who can grant it."

"What I have done is worthy of nothing but silence and forgetfulness, but what God has done for me is worthy of everlasting and thankful memory."

"Just a 'thank you' is a mighty powerful prayer. Says it all."

"I thought that all of the sacrifices and blessings of the whole history of mankind have devolved upon me. Thank you, God."

"Happiness is the realization of God in the heart. Happiness is the result of praise and thanksgiving, of faith, of acceptance; a quiet tranquil realization of the love of God."

"I thank you, God, for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes."

"God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say 'thank you?' "

"Thank God every morning when you get up that you have something to do that day, which must be done, whether you like it or not."

"Perhaps it takes a purer faith to praise God for unrealized blessings than for those we once enjoyed or those we enjoy now."

"I have lived to thank God that all my prayers have not been answered."

"Thank God men cannot fly and lay waste the sky as well as the Earth."

"Those blessings are sweetest that are won with prayer and worn with thanks."

"Gratitude bestows reverence changing forever how we experience life and the world."

"Thank you to all for your prayers and good wishes. It gave me the strength to persevere and warmed my heart."

"If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough."

"Thank you, dear God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough. Thank you for the rain. And for the chance to wake up in three hours and go fishing: I thank you for that now, because I won't feel so thankful then."

"I give thanks every day that I've been able to take my craziness and make it work for me."

"Ingratitude to God does not rely only on our refusal to give the verbal Thanksgiving due to him but also resides in our inability to appreciate his gifts and potentials in us by leaving them untapped."

“Every time we remember to say 'thank you,' we experience nothing less than heaven on Earth.”

Thank you quotes 

By: Susan Dugdale | Last modified: 03-20-2019 | First published: 01-01-2009

- 38 quotations to help you say "thank you" meaningfully

These thank you quotes come from many sources.

It's my hope you'll find the collection useful for picking out a special phrase, or two, to include in either a note or a speech.

I've found a quotation is a great alternative to a long string of: "Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you ..." which becomes tediously boring to listen to, or read, especially if you have a long list of people to acknowledge. After all any word said over, and over again, tends to lose its initial impact and meaning!

A well-chosen quotation will help keep your thanks interesting to listen to, as well as meaningful for the first, and last person, on your list.

How to use a quotation in your speech 

Below the quotes, near the bottom of the page, you'll find an example showing how to work one neatly into your text.

Getting from thank you quote to speech

Obviously you can either use the quotes as they are, or adapt them to suit your purpose!

However, whatever you choose to do with them do acknowledge the person whose words you're using.

Most of these quotations are well known. If you don't use the person's name people may think you're trying to pass their words off as your own. That could be awkward, embarrassing or even damaging for you.

Example of how to use a quote in a speech

Here's quote number 5 integrated into part of a "thank you" speech to illustrate. I've used it as the reason leading to thanking three people for their support. 

"The English writer G.B. Stern said  "Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone" and I agree with her.

I want to shout my thanks out loud. I want everyone to know and hear how much the support of Tom, Brad and Harry means to me. But more than that, I want them to know.

Tom you were there for me 200%. You shared your expertise and time unstintingly. 

Brad, we've been mates since kindergarten. You give me that rare combination of loyalty, humor and honesty. You keep me on track, laughing and true - a real friend.

Harry, you're a marvel. Patient and practical. You listen, you understand and find solutions where others would only see problems."
