Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it.
Appreciation is a wonderful thing: It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.

Michael Ian Black

Next to excellence is the appreciation of it.
William Makepeace Thackeray
When I was 17, I worked in a mentoring program in Harlem designed to improve the community.

Kenneth R. Miller

Gymnastics, for me, gave me a lot of self-pride: that drive to want to be great at something for myself. But it also gave me a sense of appreciation toward God. Now that I'm getting older, I really appreciate the talents God gave me. Not just physically, but mentally and emotionally.
John F. Kennedy
