Quote of the Day (Roy T. Bennett, on ‘The Simplest Act of Gratitude’)

“Everyone enjoys being acknowledged and appreciated. Sometimes even the simplest act of gratitude can change someone's entire day. Take the time to recognize and value the people around you and appreciate those who make a difference in your lives.”— American author and speaker Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart: Inspirational Thoughts for Living Your Best Life (2021)

The image accompanying this post comes from the 1999 BBC adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations, with Ray Winstone playing Abel Magwitch—an escaped convict whose gratitude to the young Pip will be demonstrated in a most unusual way.
