*The pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts … nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving. --H. W. Westermayer

*On Thanksgiving Day we acknowledge our dependence. --William Jennings Bryan

*Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving. --WT Purkiser

*8000 calorie poem May your stuffing be tasty May your turkey plump, May your potatoes and gravy have nary a lump. May your yams be delicious and your pies take the prize, and may your Thanksgiving dinner stay off your thighs! -Unknown
