Gratitude

Additional Links

Gratitude recognizes benefits with praise and thanksgiving, returning them according to opportunity and means. Since beneficence neither supposes title in the receiver nor creates one in the giver, gratitude is a special virtue. However, dictated by man's social nature, it is imposed by the Creator, to whom it is universally due.
