Одна из причин того, что я бегу в будущее, состоит, я полагаю, в том, что я нетерпелив. Мне страстно хочется побыстрее увидеть результаты начатого тобой, но мне нож острый -- наблюдать все промежуточные стадии, которые -- есть у меня такое подозрение -- могут оказаться достаточно неприятными. Было бы интересно увидеть -- в том мире, который будет вокруг меня через несколько коротких минут относительного времени, -- помнят ли тебя как творца или как разрушителя, да и помнят ли.
До свиданья, Олвин.
Some daily situations – at work and in our personal lives – require more formal language. And this is often true in writing.
For example, if you’re expressing thankfulness or gratitude in a speech at a wedding, a formal reception or networking event, or in a lecture, it would be appropriate to choose more formal language.
Or if you’re writing thank you notes to friends and family members; if you’re sending an email to say thank you to a new client; or writing to another company, again, you’ll want to use these more formal expressions.
I’m so grateful for… / I’m so thankful for… / Many thanks for…
Writing some thank you notes to friends who helped you after the birth of a baby or while you were helping a sick parent?
I truly appreciate… / Thank you ever so much for… / It’s so kind of you to…
Are you sending an email to everyone on your team at work for working overtime or volunteering to work on a Saturday?
Thank you for going through the trouble to… / Thank you for taking the time to…
Did one of your business contacts take some extra time to give you some information you needed? Send an email to say thank you…
I’m eternally grateful for… / I cannot thank you enough for… / I want you to know how much I value… / Words cannot describe how grateful I am for… / Please accept my deepest thanks for…
Sometimes we have very difficult times in our lives. Maybe a loved one becomes ill. Someone passes away. Or perhaps you lose a job.
Tragedies happen. These can be terribly stressful times. If you are writing someone to thank them to help you, these expressions are most appropriate.
Mr President, thank you very much for giving me this opportunity to explain my vote on this important issue. Señor Presidente, muchas gracias por darme esta.
Saying thank you is a simple and often overlooked way to show someone how much they mean to you. The gesture is made even more special when you’ve taken the time to include a small gift and handwrite a nice message in order to express your gratitude.
We’ve shared some of our favorite ways to say thank you that are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.
Did you just have a birthday, wedding or baby shower and want to thank your party guests for showering you with gifts? A thoughtful note is a great way to share your gratitude. Make the sentiment really special by telling them specifically how they’ve brightened your day. Don’t be afraid to have some fun or admit how excited you are to use their gift!
Start your letter with one of these sentiments:
Whether a friend, family member or stranger has gone out of their way for you, surprise them with a small gift to show that their kind deed didn’t go unnoticed! A candle or incense are both inexpensive options to add to your thank you note for a little something extra.
You can customize one of these for your situation:
They are your partner in crime and have your back no matter what. Let your bestie know how much they mean to you by putting together a gift basket that’s just for them. Customize it with their favorite drink, a gift card to that boutique they always talk about, or items like bubble bath, an eye mask and slippers for a relaxing night in. Play with silly puns or recount your favorite memory with them to show how much their friendship means to you.
Here are some other ways to let a friend know how great they are:
Do you have a spouse or significant other that is always surprising you with kind acts? Take the time to tell them how much you love them by baking a sweet treat or buying them their favorite dessert. Add a short note with three reasons why they are amazing and watch their smile light up the room.

There are a few different moments when it’s appropriate to take the time to tell your boss or colleagues how much you appreciate them and their work.

One of the best classes I've attended...ever.RN RHUL
Thank you so much for the training session...I really enjoyed and learnt lots from it.MG (Senior Lecturer) University of Westminster
This is quite refreshing...as we are often 'forced' to undertake statutory training sessions that are completely useless and irrelevant to what we do. This was an optional session, but it was the most useful I've had in the last eight years! So thank you!
The most interesting, productive and enjoyable staff development event that I've ever been to. Thank you.MD Lecturer Brunel University
Thanks for the inspiring talk and the wonderful workshop. It was given in a very visually appealing form. Who doesn't like to read interesting illustrations? It was very well designed, practical and valuable for anyone who wants to enhance their understanding about writing.LZ Confucius Institute for Business and Communication
Just a few quick lines to thank you for the excellent seminar – Giving Presentations. It was absolutely superb. I’ve been to quite a number of these seminars on doing presentations (in a University as well as a business context) – but yours was the best one so far, by a long margin.MK Durham University
This was an extremely informative, enjoyable and above all valuable session and I look forward to putting some of the techniques I've learned today into practice.SM City University London

Just wanted to say how good your workshop was. In fact, it's the best I’ve ever been to.MA Programme Leader University of Dundee

I just wanted to jot you a note of thanks to say how much I enjoyed your workshop on Conference Posters this morning. It was certainly more lively and engaging than I had hoped for - how did you manage to bring such charisma to poster design?!SP Researcher
Just wanted to thank you for a great session - it has helped me focus and will be a great asset to me. I very nearly didn't attend because of a looming deadline , but I believe the hours spent will be repaid many times over!RS Research Supervisor
Your first opening question changed my perspective on things entirely. Real insight and complete focus. Thank you.GC Section Head
Thanks so much for your session. It really motivated me to change my approach to networking and academic conferences this summer. I can honestly say that putting your tips and tools into practice made me feel more confident, helped me to get more feedback on my work from senior people and allowed me to figure out a networking style that I'm finally comfortable with.AB Judge Business School
Thanks again for today's workshop. I have attended several similar sessions in recent years. Yours is by far the best. Your approach has caused me to ask myself how to derive personal lessons from the material, and that has not happened very often before....GC Research Professor
Thank you so much for the most interesting and inspiring workshop! I didn't only enjoy it but have tried to practise it. I felt lost in the midst of things and not sure what I was after. Now I feel more confident to do something. It's such a great feeling!SML Research Student
What struck me most was how aware he seemed to be of everything that was occurring in the room. The real benefit came where he managed to help us open up discussions of what everyone was thinking… but no one was saying.JPR Project Manager
I learned more in one afternoon with you than in the entire “Academic Development” programme that we are forced to do here. You’ve made me question my views on training. Thank you.RG Lecturer and PhD Supervisor
I found your session on Saturday very useful indeed, to the extent that I haven't stopped thinking and rethinking so much of what you said. I am already working on some short term objectives which I have set myself and have organised another meeting with my supervisor. I feel so much more positive and optimistic now and certainly have managed to get rid of that dreaded feeling of isolation which can really pull me downPR Research Student
I wanted to email you to say how interesting and informative I found the Giving Conference Presentations course yesterday. It was supportive, fun, answered all of my queries and provided more information on top. I would recommend this course for any academicPB Research Staff
Thanks for the thesis course that I came on before the summer. I learned stuff that morning that I guess I really should have known before. I just submitted my thesis, so I’m celebrating! Your course should be compulsory – and I’ve told that to my supervisor!MP Post Doc (Pending)
I’m just writing to say that, of all the sessions I’ve ever been to, this was by far the best.DW Research Technician
Thanks for a really interesting day yesterday. I've been on two of your courses now and what works for me is the fact that they are different to the usual course format- more interactive and tailored to what individual participants want.NK Research Student
The workshop was directed with real efficiency and yet, in the space of that relatively short time, you managed to achieve a warm and genuine relationship with each student, making us feel relaxed about airing problems and helping us arrive at possible solutions.MO Research Student
Last year I took part in your Managing Research course and I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for it. I found the questions you asked and tasks you gave us very inspiring. I gained so much from it and my first half year of my PhD programme certainly would not have been the same without it! I kept minutes from the workshop which I still use.JP Research Staff
… thanks for the course that you ran about finishing the PhD. I was having a hard time and wondering if it was worth it. The ideas, tactics, techniques and support that I got from that afternoon were probably the difference between quitting and staying. Anyway, I got through my viva successfully yesterday – and I wanted to thank you.LM Post-Doc
Thank you so much dear boss for taking a chance on me and teaching me that there Thank you so much for giving me an extended leave of absence when my.
When a friend does something for you, it is important to say thank you. This is a fundamental aspect of courtesy, but sometimes it is hard to know what to say.
It is important to remember that your friends will be happy to get your message and will not be judging you for what it says. The best thing to do is to make your message match what your friend did for you. For a small favor, a short message is just fine. For a larger favor, longer messages more appropriate. It is also important to specifically mention what you are thanking your friend for.
#1: Thank you so much for being there for me last night. I really needed someone to talk to, and you gave me some very good advice. I am feeling much better today thanks to your help. You are a great friend.
