Proverbs on Gratitude

From ancient times and across every language, culture, and community, people have distilled profound wisdom into a form that is concise, portable, and memorable. One popular form of neatly encapsulated wisdom is known as the proverb. A proverb, which is also called an adage, maxim, or epigram, is potent; in a single, pithy phrase, it conveys a universal truth or a valuable piece of advice. Proverbs articulate principles that are passed from one generation to the next—principles about how to live a life filled with meaning and purpose, and how to cope with any situations a person might encounter in their life in this world.

In honor of the month of Thanksgiving in the U.S., enjoy this banquet of proverbs from around the world on the topic of gratitude.
