You’ll always be my gravy

Thanksgiving Quotes

Here are some great thanksgiving quotes from some famous people around the world:

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough. – Oprah Winfrey

Pride slays thanksgiving, but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves. – Henry Ward Beecher

A lot of Thanksgiving days have been ruined by not carving the turkey in the kitchen. – Kin Hubbard

I think that is a better thing than thanksgiving: thanks-living. How is this to be done? By a general cheerfulness of manner, by an obedience to the command of Him by whose mercy we live, by a perpetual, constant delighting of ourselves in the Lord, and by a submission of our desires to His will. –  Charles Spurgeon


Thanksgiving & Black Friday Quotes

When people come to my act any time after Thanksgiving, I usually say, You shouldn’t be here. You should be shopping. Our economy depends on you! You should be out there buying stuff.’  – Lewis Black

Thanksgiving Cooking & Food Quotes

If you think about a Thanksgiving dinner, it’s really like making a large chicken. – Ina Garten

I love chicken. I would eat chicken fingers on Thanksgiving if it were socially acceptable. – Todd Barry

My mom makes something called green pie, which I thought was a delicacy that many people only had at Thanksgiving, but it turns out it was just Jell-O with whipped cream on it. And it’s delicious. – Bobby Moynihan

Something I didn’t even know was on my bucket list has been achieved. I have cooked Thanksgiving dinner with Martha Stewart. I vow to follow the gospel of her teachings and do my very best in the remarkably less glamorous kitchen of my own home… without the luxury of magically appearing prep bowls filled by a staff of sous chefs. – Jesse Tyler Ferguson

Giving Back Quotes

My parents came from little, so they made a choice to give a lot: buying turkeys for homeless shelters at Thanksgiving, delivering meals to people in hospices, giving spare change to those asking for it. – Meghan Markle

It’s as simple as helping an old lady across the street or giving up your seat on the bus for someone who is pregnant. – Queen Latifah

I remember back in the days my Mom didn’t have enough for Thanksgiving. – Jay Rock

Every year around Christmas and Thanksgiving, I buy a bunch of toys for the sick children in the oncology center at the St. Louis Children’s Hospital. I really love giving back and putting a smile on their faces, especially during the holidays. – Devon Windsor
