Chesterton on Gratitude

I do not, in my personal capacity, believe that a baby gets his best physical food by sucking his thumb; nor that a man gets his best moral food by sucking his soul, and denying its dependence on God or other good things. I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.

Chip's Thoughts:

Today’s WORSHIP QUOTE is chosen to help us remember that gratitude and thanksgiving must be directed towards the giver. English essayist G. K. Chesterton points at the absurdity of only "looking within" for meaning and significance.
