Not in rewards, but in the strength to strive, the blessing lies
Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
The great blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach; but we shut our eyes, and, like people in the dark, we fall foul upon the very thing we search for, without finding it.
Our prayers should be for blessings in general, for God knows best what is good for us.
When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.
When we lose one blessing, another is often, most unexpectedly, given in its place.
Change, like sunshine, can be a friend or a foe, a blessing or a curse, a dawn or a dusk
One of the blessings of being rich is the blessing to be charitable
Men are slower to recognize blessings than evils
Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked
Blessings ever wait on virtuous deeds, and though a late, a sure reward succeeds
All the blessings we enjoy are Divine deposits, committed to our trust on this condition, that they should be dispensed for the benefit of our neighbors
No blessing lasts forever
The proud man counts his newspaper clippings, the humble man his blessings.
Blessed is the man who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed" was the ninth beatitude
Four blessings upon you - Older whiskey - Younger women - Faster horses - More money
It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.
Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving
A good memory is one that can remember the day's blessings and forget the day's troubles
A true friend is the greatest of all blessings, and that which we take the least care of all to acquire There's no disaster that can't become a blessing, and no blessing that can't become a disaster
Prayers go up and blessings come down
Those who expect to reap the blessings of liberty must undergo the fatigues of supporting it
No man is entitled to the blessings of freedom unless he be vigilant in its preservation
