“Absence of gratitude is the mark of the
narrow, uneducated mind. It bespeaks a lack of knowledge and the ignorance
of self-sufficiency. It expresses itself in ugly egotism and frequently in
wanton mischief... Where there is appreciation, there is courtesy, there is
concern for the rights and property of others.
Without it there is arrogance and evil."
- Gordon B. Hinckley,

“Living in thanksgiving daily is a habit
that will enrich our lives and the lives of those we love...Those who live
in thanksgiving daily have a way of opening their eyes and seeing the
wonders and beauties of this world as though seeing them for the first
- Joseph B. Wirthlin,
The Ensign, September, 2001

|John went to a
psychiatrist. “Doc, he said, “I’ve got trouble. Every time I get into
bed I think there is somebody under it. I get under the bed; I think
there’s somebody on top of it. Top, under, under, top. I’m going crazy!”
“Just put yourself in my hands for two years,” said the shrink. “Come to me three times a week and I’ll cure you.”
“How much do you charge?”
“A hundred dollars per visit.”
“I’ll think about it.”
John never went back. Some time later he met the doctor on the street.
“Why didn’t you ever come to see me again?" asked the psychiatrist.
“For a hundred buck a visit? A bartender cured me for 10 dollars.”
“Is that so! How?”
“He told me to cut the legs off the bed.”

Lyrics by Henry Alford (07 Oct 1810 - 12 Jan 1871); Music by Sir George Job Elvey (29 Mar 1816 - 1893), organist at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle for nearly fifty years, about 1844
Come, ye thankful people, come, Raise the song of harvest home; All is safely gathered in, Ere the winter storms begin. God our Maker doth provide For our wants to be supplied; Come to God's own temple, come, Raise the song of harvest home. All the world is God's own field, Fruit as praise to God we yield; Wheat and tares together sown Unto joy or sorrow grown; First the blade and then the ear, Then the full corn shall appear; Lord of harvest, grant that we Wholesome grain and pure may be. For the Lord our God shall come, And shall take the harvest home; From the field shall in that day All offenses purge away, Giving angels charge at last In the fire the tares to cast, But the fruitful ears to store In the garner evermore. Even so, Lord, quickly come, Bring thy final harvest home; Gather thou thy people in, Free from sorrow, free from sin, There, forever purified, In thy presence to abide; Come, with all thine angels, come, Raise the glorious harvest home.
