We were taken with sections on appreciation, daily affirmations, staying thankful in difficult times, and your spiritual bucket list. The authors clearly love quotations because this paperback is packed with them, each serving as a probe of the practice of "living life as a Thank You." Here are a few to reflect on:

• "Gratefulness — the simple response of our heart to this life in all its fullness — goes beyond boundaries of creed, age, vocation, gender, and nation."
— J. Robert Moskin

• "Who does not thank for little will not thank for much."
— Estonian Proverb

• "When a person doesn't have gratitude, something is missing in his or her humanity. A person can almost be defined by his or her attitude toward gratitude."
— Elie Wiesel

• "Gratitude is a vaccine, an antitoxin, and an antiseptic."
— John Henry Towett

• "Gratitude is the memory of the heart."
— Jean Baptiste Massieu
