My final choice of quote is attributed to Aesop.
Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.
It just goes to show that human nature has not changed essentially since the days of ancient Greece. What Aesop wrote then is still true to this day. There are lots of quotes attributed to Aesop, and many of them inspirational and wise.
I am grateful that I am writing stories and poetry and that YOU are taking the time to read them and give me some encouragement on the way.
I would like to nominate Emily at A Writers Beginning to take up this challenge.
All the best
