Appreciation Quotes and Thank You Messages

“Feeling appreciation and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” – William Ward

In addition to original poems, we want to inspire curated quotes on appreciation and gratitude. Famous thinkers have shared their thoughts on showing genuine appreciation when the feeling strikes – not holding it in!

We have selected and categorized quotes for employee recognition into themes like inspiration and gifts for teachers, nurses, principals, bosses, and pastors. Some quotes on helping others provide life lessons on the importance of conveying gratitude. Others connect the occasion to the uplifting message.

Here are some short inspirational quotes for showing employee appreciation:

  • “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” – Aesop
  • “Happiness doesn’t result from what we get, but from what we give.” – Ben Carson
  • When preparing end-of-year gifts for principals, co-workers or Sunday school teachers, include a relevant quote about making a positive difference:
  • “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela
  • “If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime – help somebody.” – Chinese Proverb

The poetry we’ve explored taps into deep human emotions and experiences. But simpler, lighter ways exist to show appreciation and connect with others. Small gestures like handing out gifts can lift someone’s mood or make them feel valued. Let’s shift gears now and look at some ideas for easy gifts to brighten someone’s day—things like greeting cards, gift bags, flowers, or gift certificates. With a bit of creativity, even small tokens of appreciation can make people feel happy and supported.
