Thinking of You Quotations

Thou perchance art thinking now
      As I think of thee,
And our thoughts in heaven above
      Meet invisibly.
~J.J. Britton (1832–1913), "To C.E.S.: A Thought"

If I had a single flower for every time I think of you, I could walk forever in my garden. ~Claudia Adrienne Grandi, as quoted in The Rockmart Journal (Georgia), 1992  [Thank you,! —tg]

No day so quickly passes
That I don't think some of you,
It may be once, or often,
But each thought of you rings true;
And oft I pray in silence,
Asking God to keep you free
From all life's ills and sorrows—
And to let you think of me.
~W. Dayton Wegefarth (1885–1973), "A Prayer," Rainbow Verse: A Book of Helpful Sunny Philosophy, 1919

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see. ~John Burroughs, 1913

May brooks and trees and singing hills
Join in the chorus too,
And every gentle wind that blows
Send happiness to you.
~Irish blessing

Some people are so much sunshine to the square inch. ~Author unknown

A little bit of sunshine
And the mellow of the moon,
Then the silver dust of starshine,
With the perfumed breath of June,
And the glisten of the skyways
Through their endless lanes of blue:
That's my wish for thee and thy days,
And I'm praying 'twill come true.
~W. Dayton Wegefarth (1885–1973), "A Bit o' Heaven," Rainbow Verse: A Book of Helpful Sunny Philosophy, 1919

Someone remembers, someone cares;
Your name is whispered in someone's prayers.
~Author unknown

Friend o' Mine:  I should like to send you a sunbeam, or the twinkle of some bright star, or a tiny piece of the downy fleece that clings to a cloud afar. I should like to send you the essence of a myriad sun-kissed flowers, or the lilting song, as it floats along, of a brook through fairy bowers. I should like to send you the dew-drops that glisten at the break of day, and then at night the eerie light that mantles the Milky Way. I should like to send you the power that nothing can overthrow — the power to smile and laugh the while a-journeying through life you go. But these are mere fanciful wishes; I'll send you a Godspeed instead, and I'll clasp your hand — then you'll understand all the things I have left unsaid. ~W. Dayton Wegefarth (1885–1973)

A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you.
~Irish blessing

God understands our prayers even when we can't find the words to say them. ~Author unknown

I think of you, dear, in the morning,
When the sun rises over the hill,
To bid the fair world to awaken,
To glorify each rook and rill.
~W. Dayton Wegefarth (1885–1973), "When I Think of You," Smiles and Sighs, 1910

I think of you, dear, when the sunshine,
Maturing the day by its glow,
Mellows the afternoon breezes
That kiss and caress as they blow.
~W. Dayton Wegefarth (1885–1973), "When I Think of You," Smiles and Sighs, 1910

I think of you, dear, in the twilight,
When stars dot the heavens so blue;
'Tis then that I see in the gloaming
The image, dear girlie, of you.
~W. Dayton Wegefarth (1885–1973), "When I Think of You," Smiles and Sighs, 1910

So you see that I think of you always,
From daybreak 'till darkness of night;
And then through the long weary hours
I dream of you, deary, 'till light.
~W. Dayton Wegefarth (1885–1973), "When I Think of You," Smiles and Sighs, 1910

My thoughts are free to go anywhere, but it's surprising how often they head in your direction. ~Author unknown

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
~Irish blessing

When we're together or when we're apart, you're first in my thoughts and first in my heart. ~Author unknown

When you're happy, I'm happy. When you're sad, I'm sad. When you're lonely, call me! ~Author unknown

Just thinking of you — missing you —
      Just want to say "Hello" —
Being friends with you means more
      Than you will ever know.
~Current ®, "Thinking of You," from Post-A-Note postcards, circa 1950s–1970s,

If instead of a gem, or even of a flower, we could cast the gift of a lovely thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving, as the angels, I suppose, must give. But you did more and better for me than that. ~George MacDonald

I think about you constantly, whether it's with my mind or my heart. ~Terri Guillemets
