Here's what philosophers, writers, motivational speakers and some American icons have to say about thankfulness.

Thanksgiving holiday gives us the opportunity to reflect on all that we have to be grateful for. Although some of us might be busy wrestling with the turkey and figuring out which stuffing to make, while making sure the kids don’t destroy the house before guests arrive, it’s important to take a few moments to reflect on what it means to live from a place of gratitude, and to do it every day of the year.

While you may have a favorite saint or Bible passage to refer to on a day like today, you can also look to some familiar names who’ve made thoughtful observations about gratitude which may inspire your own.

So grab some hot apple cider and take a few minutes out to reflect on these wise words as you focus on the meaning of Thanksgiving.
