Gratitude is the resource for cherishing our blessings. In conducting ourselves, we must have the virtue of gratitude. People who are grateful cherish what they have, enabling them to go on to repay others in return. As the saying goes, "Repay the generosity of a drop of water with a gushing spring." Gratitude is the wealth of life, and the lives of those who are grateful are the richest.
