Thoreau on gratitude:

"I am grateful for what I have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. It is surprising how contented one can be with nothing definite - only a sense of existence. My breath is sweet to me. O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches. No run on my bank can drain it, for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment."

--Henry David Thoreau (some time between 1817 and 1862)
