blue forgetmenot

These 30+ thank you quotes or appreciation quotes come from many sources.

I hope they'll help stimulate your imagination to find other ways of saying thank you rather than:

"Thank you, thank you, thank you and thank you. And just once more, for good measure - thank you."

It gets just a tad repetitive, doesn't it?

Any word repeated over, and over again tends to lose its initial impact.

That's why finding alternative ways to express your gratitude is a good idea; particularly if you're making a thank you speech or appreciation speech and have a long list of people to mention. Variation will keep your thanks interesting to listen to and meaningful for the first person on your list as well as the last.

Here's an example integrated into part of a 'thank you' speech to illustrate. It's quote number 4 below.

"G.B. Stern said 'Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone.' and I agree.

I want to shout my thanks out loud. I want everyone to know and hear how much the support of Tom, Brad and Harry means to me. But more than that, I want them to know.

Tom you were there for me 200%. You shared your expertise and time unstintingly.

Brad, we've been mates since kindergarten. You give me that rare combination of loyalty, humor and honesty. You keep me on track, laughing and true - a real friend.

Harry, you're a marvel. Patient and practical. You listen, you understand and find solutions where others would only see problems."
