Gratitude is a burden

Men are more ready to repay an injury than a benefit
because gratitude is a burden and revenge a pleasure.
— Tacitus (56-120 AD)


  1. Hmmmm, I'm pondering this. From your famous quotes book?

  2. Great quote. So true... I need to keep that one.

  3. Susanne,

    Nope, just an interesting quote that I heard on Criminal Minds, actually, and thought I'd share. It's just there to ponder.

  4. Candice,

    It's one of those painful realities. Something very good to keep in mind, though.

  5. From the same Criminal Minds I liked
    “There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love.” Washington Irving
