Gratitude Quotes by Konosuke Matsushita
(source e.g. quotation「php研究所konosuke-matsushita.com」より)
・(A rough translation of the content)The higher the gratitude, the more directly proportional to that, the greater the sense of well-being /Before talking about the hardship, I would first like to thank myself for good luck.
As mentioned above, gratitude is born from "discovering what you have been given, both in the present and in the past. The more you discover what you have been given, the more your heart will be filled, and this will lead to a heightened sense of happiness.
In order to lead a happy life, we need to change our perspective from "what is not fulfilling" to "what is fulfilling.
The life of Konosuke Matsushita, the god of management, was filled with love, passion, and a challenging spirit for human resource development until his final years when he passed 90.
It is said that people become "old" when they talk more about their hardships, but Konosuke always had a policy of "gratitude" rather than a sense of dissatisfaction with his "Not fulfilled" parts or stories of past hardships.
To be grateful for one's own good fortune is, in other words, to be grateful for the love and actions of heaven and people. Throughout his life, it is this deepening of gratitude that seems to have become the driving force for his next development.

・The mirror doesn't laugh first. So let me smile. Let's say "Thank you".
The author is unknown, but it is an interesting expression.
It is a way of saying that in order to adjust our relationships, we first need to change our thoughts and actions. This is because the relationship between you and your partner is like a mirror that reflects what you have in common with each other.
So how do we start? First of all, one word: "Thank you".
Gratitude quotes by Aesop (fable writer)
・Appreciation is a testament to a noble soul.
On the other hand, what kind of person is unable to feel gratitude?
It is someone who is too proud of themselves to realize that they are benefiting from many people. It is also someone who is extremely self-deprecating, who thinks only of themselves and overlooks the love of those around them.
Gratitude is the common denominator for becoming a virtuous soul.

Gratitude Quotes by Samuel Johnson

Gratitude Sayings and Quotes from the Minquas of North America

Appreciation Quotes by William Blake
・ The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.
William Blake was a poet, painter, and etcher of English Romanticism.
It is often translated as "one who receives gratitude," but in this context, "one who receives with gratitude" would make more sense. Either way, it is important to let gratitude and thankfulness respond to each other and grow into a great harvest.
Although the author is unknown, there is also a saying that goes something like this
・Thanksgiving catch becomes a happy home run
Gratitude Quotes by Isaac Walton
・God has two dwellings; one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart.
The quote taught me that to encounter God, we need a warm heart full of thoughts and gratitude, like the surface of a calm and tranquil lake.
Isaac Walton was a close friend of the local pastor-poet, John Dunne, as well as an angler-writer who published The Complete Book of Fishing. He must have experienced a meditative state while spending peaceful time fishing, and glimpsed God in his calm mind.
From time to time, we too need to experience meditation to deepen our lives.
Gratitude Quotes by Joey Garcia
⭐感謝は心の最初の言語です。(Joey Garcia is a writer for the country of Belize, located south of Mexico in Central America.)
・(free translation)Gratitude is the heart’s first language.
It is said that the word "gratitude" (thank you) is the most beautiful word on earth. As this saying goes, gratitude may be the first language of the heart.
There is also a saying, "Love and gratitude are one and the same. The fact that love and gratitude are the first expressions of the heart is a very beautiful, mysterious and romantic event.
Quotes of Appreciation by Louisa May Alcott
⭐雲の向こうは、いつも青空。(Louisa May Alcott is an American novelist. She is best known for The Tale of Young Grass.)
When a ray of light shines through the gloomy clouds, we are struck by the mysterious sight and find hope for the future that we have yet to see.
But what about when it's pouring rain? Louisa May Alcott, a transcendentalist and a representative of Emerson's romanticism, tried to see through the clouds of bad weather to a clear blue sky. This quote may be a manifestation of her deep faith and gratitude to God. ・There is always light behind the clouds..
Gratitude Quotes by Joseph Murphy
・(A rough translation of the content)If you feel grateful while praying, the prayer will be fulfilled (because it is proof that the transfer to the subconscious is complete).
The "prayer" that Murphy speaks of would have the premise that it is a prayer for love for people and a prayer for dynamic contribution in the world.
In other words, there is a direction to prayer, and it is only about whether or not one's self-realization leads to loving more people. The question is whether or not there is a deep desire from the bottom of one's heart, not just a fake love that can only be mended on the surface.
The phrase, "When you pray, gratitude arises," can only be understood by those who have practiced the prayer of love from the bottom of their heart. The reason for this, from a faith perspective, is that when we try to pray out of love, we are able to catch the vibration of love flowing from God through the law of wavelength synchronization. I think this is expressed in the term "handover to the subconscious.
There may be difficult interpretations, but first of all, let's pray with love. The deepening of sensitivity that comes from this little by little actual experience will eventually turn into a deep conviction.
