Saw these 'thank you quotes' in Real Simple Magazine ("Take a thank-you card from standard to standout with these gracious quotes") and thought they were save-worthy.

  • I can no other answer make but thanks (William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night).

  • That best portion of a good man’s life/His little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love (William Wordsworth, “Lines Written a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey”).
  • People who give will never be poor (Anne Frank, The Diary of Anne Frank).

  • Pleasantest of all ties is the tie of host and guest (Aeschylus, The Libation Bearers).

  • One can never pay in gratitude; one can only pay “in kind” somewhere else in life(Anne Morrow Lindberg, North to the Orient).

  • Kindness is always fashionable (Amelia Edith Barr, All the Days of My Life).
  • Give me one friend, just one, who meets the needs of all my varying moods (Esther Mary Clark, Verses by a Commonplace Person).

  • Little deeds of kindness/Little words of love; Help to make earth an Eden/Like the heaven above (Julia Fletcher Carney, “Little Things”).
