Thanksgiving Quotes

November 25, 2010 § Leave a comment

Here is a compilation of Thanksgiving quotations from a variety of internet sources. I only like the ones by Stewart and Leno, but I figured I should include some serious ones as well to avoid appearing to trivialize the holiday. (But who am I kidding?)

“An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day.  ~Irv Kupcinet

“Our rural ancestors, with little blest,
Patient of labour when the end was rest,
Indulged the day that housed their annual grain,
With feasts, and off’rings, and a thankful strain.”
~Alexander Pope

I celebrated Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land.” –Jon Stewart

“If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness. It will change your life mightily.” – Gerald Good

“The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts.  No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.”  -H.U. Westermayer

“You can tell you ate too much for Thanksgiving when you have to let your bathrobe out.” – Jay Leno
