Read an Excerpt


"Silent gratitude isn’t much to anyone."
—Gertrude Stein

"Every day I've got to be thankful that I am alive, and you never know—the cliche is, I guess, you could get hit by a bus tomorrow, so you'd better be at peace with whatever you got going at the moment.”
—Joseph Gorden-Levitt

"It turns out that bliss—a second-by-second joy + gratitude at the gift of being alive, conscious—lies on the other side of crushing, crushing boredom. Pay close attention to the most tedious thing you can find (tax returns, televised golf), and, in waves, a boredom like you’ve never known will wash over you and just about kill you. Ride these out, and it’s like stepping from black and white into color. Like water after days in the desert. Constant bliss at every atom."
—David Foster Wallace

    First off, love the purple hardcover. It's such a cute little size to hold and easily sits on a night stand so you can read it every day. Whenever I see a book with daily prayers or quotes, I always look up my birthday. (I think we all do this!) The quote was about giving, of course, but it put me in the mindset that giving is just as important as receiving on my birthday. Perhaps I should volunteer or do random acts of kindness next year!

    A great little gift book. The quotes are cute, inspiring, and moving. Everybody should have one blessing they hold dear. This book has so many to choose from! I personally love the quote from Tupac Shakur about the nature of roses that grow through pavement.
