From mad dogs and grumbling professors may we all be delivered, and may we never take the complaint from either of them.
Charles Spurgeon, reported in Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 421.
Every one must see daily instances of people who complain from a mere habit of complaining.
I have noticed this, that when a man is full of the Holy Ghost he is the very last man to be complaining of other people.
Some people are never content with their lot, let what will happen. Clouds and darkness are over their heads, alike whether it rain or shine. To them every incident is an accident, and every accident a calamity.charles haddon spurgeon
Nothing is easier than fault-finding. No talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character, is required to set up in the grumbling business. But those that are moved by a genuine desire to do good have little time for murmuring or complaint.
