„Gratitude is riches. Complaint is poverty.“

—  Doris Day, Though she is quoted as saying this in a 1996 interview, she is quoted as saying it is a maxim which she follows as a Christian Scientist, and it seems to come from words of a Christian Science Hymn. It does come from Hymn 249 in the Christian Science Hymnal

„To a noble person it is a holy joy to remember, an overwhelming thrill to be grateful, while to a person whose character is neither rich nor strong, gratitude is a most painful sensation.“

—  Abraham Joshua Heschel Polish-American Conservative Judaism Rabbi 1907 - 1972
Context: Only those who are spiritually imitators, only people who are afraid to be grateful and too weak to be loyal, have nothing but the present moment. The mark of nobility is inherited possession. To a noble person it is a holy joy to remember, an overwhelming thrill to be grateful, while to a person whose character is neither rich nor strong, gratitude is a most painful sensation. The secret of wisdom is never to get lost in a momentary mood or passion, never to forget a friendship over a momentary grievance, never to lose sight of the lasting values over a transitory episode. "The Holy Dimension", p. 334
