They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them
– Laurence Binyen – For The Fallen
It’s Remembrance Sunday in the UK. It’s a day for remembering and honouring those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom that we experience today. At 11am the nation will pause for a two minute silence and honour our servicemen and women past and present. As a nation it shows how thankful we are to all those that go before us, I have compiled a list of quotes on being thankful & grateful, for your inspiration.
Gratitude is the sign of noble souls. – Aesop
No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another. – Charles Dickens
When I started counting my blessings my whole word turned around. – Willie Nelson
He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has. – Epictetus

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us be thankful – Buddha
