Famous thank you quotes are great to use when you need some help with thank you note wording. The problem can be in knowing how and when to use them.
Take this quote by Marcel Proust:
"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. "
This is a great quote to use for your high school French or English teacher who wrote you a good college recommendation, your well-educated cousin who drove three hours through heavy snow to pick you up at the airport, or a college professor who recommended you for a fellowship.
It's probably not the best famous thank you quote to use when thanking the friend who showed you a wild night out on the town.
Maybe you know someone at work who has never done anything huge for you. But he or she always brightens your day with consistent small acts of kindness or just a general good attitude. If not for this person, your work place would be less enjoyable - even though he or she never does anything major or huge, that is recognized.
Perhaps one day you'd like to recognize the person with a thank you note. What famous thank you quotes could you use? Here is one quote you could try by Henry Clay:
"Courtesies of a small and trivial character are the ones which strike deepest in the grateful and appreciating heart. "
This will show your appreciation, and help the recipient to feel good about themselves. Not only is their constant good attitude recognized, but recognized with sophisticated words as well!
Of course, some people feel slightly embarrassed by direct thank you words - especially if you know someone who's a bit on the macho or non-expressive side.
What kind of thank you card quotes would you need in this case? Humor could definitely work here.
"Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings. "
Then close the card with, “Thank you for your warm feelings of friendship. "
(Of course, you've got to be careful with off-color quotes like this. Only use them with the closest of friends, and only if it fits their sense of humor!)
There are a variety of famous thank you quotes you can find on the internet and use to help you make your cards memorable and fun!
