“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero
Gratitude is the greatest attitude, because it gives us the capability to be happy with what we have. It makes us more empathetic, it makes it easier to model humility. We can be temperant and more judicious.
Thankfulness leads to Thank FULL ness, the ability to have enough and not crave more. Craving leads to envy and deceit. The inability to be full of thanks leads to anger and hatred and all the negative emotions and actions.
Grateful is the way to Greatness.
