  • Synonyms Grateful, Thankful, beholden. Grateful is preferred when we speak of the general character of a person's mind: as, a man of a grateful disposition; an ungrateful wretch. Grateful often expresses the feeling, and the readiness to manifest the feeling by acts, even a long time after the rendering of the favor; thankful refers rather to the immediate acknowledgment of the favor by words. The same distinction is found in the negative forms, ungrateful, unthankful, thankless. Thankful is often loosely used for relieved or glad, where the thanks, if rendered, would be given to a merciful or helping Providence: as, I am thankful for my escape.
