S. Austin Allibone, comp.  Prose Quotations from Socrates to Macaulay.  1880.
  Concerning the blessings of God, whether they tend unto this life or the life to come, there is great cause why we should delight more in giving thanks than in making requests for them, inasmuch as the one hath pensiveness and fear, the other always joy annexed.
Richard Hooker.    
  The privative blessings—the blessings of immunity, safeguard, liberty, and integrity—which we enjoy deserve the thanksgiving of a whole life.
Jeremy Taylor.    
  At opening your eyes, enter upon the day with thanksgiving for the preservation of you the last night, with the glorification of God for the works of creation.
Jeremy Taylor.
