LIVE TO SAY THANK YOU.
Solitude, though it may be silent as light, is like light, the mightiest of agencies; for solitude is essential to man. All men come into this world alone and leave it alone. But a great man fights the elements in his time that hinder his own greatness, in other words his own freedom and sincerity. Gratitude is his fairest blossom which springs from the soul.
Hypothetically, as life is, some people promote the emancipation of human from mental slavery and yet in this modern future, radically, some can't forget their past.
What then happened to humanity or dignity, is it worth the hatred and fear people survive by or better is the world labelled phantasmagoric.
In ceaselessly amazing world there has been many a word created, if there is any amongst the lot that could possibly, be relentlessly powerful than the imperial "sorry", that should be the seraphic "THANKS".
So be it, the world can learn to wake up tomorrow morning with devout thanksgiving for humanity, the old and new. There are but few pretty ways to shower the world an attitude of gratitude.
It is small but mighty phrase, which dates from the 15th century, goes a long way in acknowledging kindnesses big and small. The less formal variation that many of us use today to express gratitude, thanks, appeared in Shakespeare's writings. Before then, the word thank was often used to mean "thought" or "good will." It is as hard to satirise well a human of distinguished vices, as to praise well a person of distinguished virtues.
A Spanish word for "thank you" shares roots with the English word grace in the form of the Latin gratus, which means "pleasing" or "agreeable." If this mellifluous term doesn't sufficiently capture the degree of your gratitude, try out muchas gracias or muchisimas gracias, which translate roughly to "many thanks." Anything that changes our values changes our behaviour.
To infuse your gratitude with some tropical flavor, try mahalo. This Hawaiian word for "thank you" is sometimes expressed as mahalo nui loa, the Hawaiian equivalent of "thank you very much." Praise, like gold and diamonds, owes its value only to its scarcity.
This Japanese term for "thank you" was famously set to music in the 1983 Styx song "Mr. Roboto," about a rock-and-roll performer disguised as a robot escaping a futuristic prison. Domo arigato is the Japanese equivalent of "thank you very much." What difference does it make how much you have? What you do not have amounts to much more.
A relation of the English word mercy, this French word for "thank you" is often paired with beaucoup for emphasis, as in merci beaucoup. Another common French variation is mille fois merci, which translates literally to "a thousand times thanks" and is akin to the English phrase "thanks a million." It is not true that nice guys finish last. Nice guys are winners before the game ever starts.
The perfect solution for the grateful but taciturn, ta is a British colloquialism ushered into the English lexicon by toddlers. British etymologist Ernest Weekley described it as the "natural infantile sound of gratitude." The strongest symptom of wisdom in man is his being sensible of his own follies.
Las Vegas crooner Wayne Newton put this German word for "thank you" on the tips of English-speaking tongues with his 1963 hit "Danke Schoen." In this expression, schoen means "beautifully," but since we don't use "beautifully" in the same way in English, the German expression is often translated as "thank you very much" or "thank you kindly." Before a diamond shows its brilliancy and prismatic colors it has to stand a good deal of cutting and smoothing.
We need words like these, we need people's experience, we need your youth, your strength, and your idealism, to help us make right what is wrong simply by saying THANK YOU.
