All-Encompassing Gratitude

The author G K Chesterton broadened the notion and practice of saying grace when he said:

“You say grace before meals alright
But I say grace before the play and the opera
And grace before the concert and the pantomime.

And grace before I open a book
And grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing,
Walking, playing, dancing
And grace before I dip pen in the ink.”
