Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone.

Silent Gratitude

If you are thankful for someone, I encourage you to share your gratitude with them. How will the person know how much they are appreciated if you never tell them!?

I am a huge fan of thank you notes. A thank-you note could have more impact than telling them verbally or with a text message. If you will not do a thank you note, at least tell them in person.

Thank you notes can be written in 5 steps and follow this tip to make it great.

The quote

I first came across “Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone” in the July 2014 issue of The American Organist. (In addition to writing and promoting thank you notes I play the organ. I have a separate blog about becoming an organist). The last page of the issue was a reminder to thank all those that do things for us or help us in our everyday lives.

Before posting this quote, I tried to determine its origin. There are many quote sites and others blogs that give Gladys Bronwyn Stern the credit. However, I was not able to learn where or when she said this.

If you know where this quote is from please share in a comment. And thank someone today!
