All observers not laboring under hallucinations of the senses are agreed,
or can be made to agree, about facts of sensible experience,
through evidence toward which the intellect is merely passive,
and over which the individual will and character have no control.

By what criterion...
can we distinguish among the numberless effects,
that are also causes, and among the causes that may,

Such evidence is not the only kind which produces belief;
though positivism maintains that it is the only kind
which ought to produce so high a degree of confidence
as all minds have or can be made to have through their agreements.
- Chauncey Wright

I Receive ALL of Life with Thanksgiving -
I have gratitude for EVERYTHING

I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.

to be consoled as to console;

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
- St. Francis of Assisi

Honor your past, and all the consequences of that past.

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Ask and you shall receive, that your joy may be full.
- John 16:24

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
...
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
- attributed to St. Francis of Assisi

It is more agreeable to have the power to give than to receive.
- Winston Churchill

All who call on God in true faith, earnestly from the heart,
will certainly be heard, and will receive what they have asked and desired.

On this day, as on every day,
we Receive ALL of Life with Thanksgiving.
We have gratitude for EVERYTHING
that has ever occurred to bring us to this moment.
We give thanks for the joys and the sufferings,
the moments of peace and the flashes of anger,
the compassion and the indifference,
the roar of our courage
and the cold sweat of our fear.
We accept gratefully the entirety
of our past and our present life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I was hoping it would sort of disorient them and prepare
