GRUMBLING
[ Also see Discontent ]

There is an unfortunate disposition in a man to attend much more to the faults of his companions which offend him, than to their perfections which please him.
      - Sir Fulke Greville, 1st Baron Brooke, Lord Brooke

Those who complain most are most to be complained of.
      - Matthew (Mathew) Henry

I believe in grumbling it is the politest form of fighting known.
      - Edgar Watson Howe

Grumblers deserve to be operated upon surgically; their trouble is usually chronic.
      - Douglas William Jerrold

When a man is full of the Holy Ghost, he is the very last man to be complaining of other people.
      - Dwight Lyman Moody

From mad dogs and grumbling professors may we all be delivered; and may we never take the complaint from either of them!
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

It's a great comfort to some people to groan over their imaginary ills.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

No talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character, is required to set up in the grumbling business; but those who are moved by a genuine desire to do good have little time for murmuring or complaint.
      - Robert West

The very large, very respectable, and very knowing class of misanthropes who rejoice in the name of grumblers,--persons who are so sure that the world is going to ruin, that they resent every attempt to comfort them as an insult to their sagacity, and accordingly seek their chief consolation in being inconsolable, their chief pleasure in being displeased.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple
