Gratitude makes a person modest. A sense of gratitude expands the heart.

None of us can exist in isolation. Our lives and existence are supported by others in seen and unseen ways, be it by parents, mentors or society at large. To be aware of these connections, to feel appreciation for them, and to strive to give something back to society in a spirit of gratitude is the proper way for human beings to live.

The ungrateful feel that it is below them to show any kind of appreciation. They are under the delusion that showing gratitude to others diminishes their own worth. This is their major failing. It is a sense of appreciation that elevates, enriches and expands the human spirit. And it is arrogance that prevents one from seeing this.

There is no one as strong as a person whose heart is always filled with gratitude.

To feel gratitude to one’s parents sounds like a trivial thing, but this is the mark of true maturity and growth as a human being.
