“I feel glad to be alive — ‘I’m glad I’m not dead!’ sometimes bursts out of me when the weather is perfect… My predominant feeling is one of gratitude.” —Oliver Sacks
“I have a certain obligation and duty, as it were — because I’ve walked the earth for 30 years — to leave a certain souvenir in the form of drawings or paintings in gratitude.” —Vincent van Gogh to Theo van Gogh, August 7, 1883
“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” —GK Chesterton
“Witnessing the hidden work performed on their behalf makes customers more satisfied, more willing to pay, and more loyal.” ( “Operational transparency” is a really fancy way of saying #ShowYourWork showyrwork.com ) [thx @shawnblanc!] hbr.org/2019/03/operat…
