Awe, pleasure and wonder

“Gratitude is rooted in the sense that life is a gift,” writes Rabbi Harold Kushner.

In his book The Lord Is My Shepherd, Rabbi quotes Abraham Maslow:

“Psychologist Abraham Maslow has praised as a character trait of the fully mature adult ‘the ability to appreciate again and again, freshly and naively, the basic goods of life with awe, pleasure, wonder and even ectasy’ when others have come to take them for granted.”
