I had a special request for inspiration this week. My sister, a teacher, asked for quotes about whining and complaining. Apparently her students like to complain a lot. Tough crowd.
I found a few that I liked.
“Don’t find fault, find a remedy; anybody can complain.” – Henry Ford
“It is better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness.” – Confucius
“Realize that if you have time to whine and complain about something then you have the time to do something about it.” – Anthony J. D’Angelo
“If all complaints had to be accompanied by the submission of a delicious sandwich then fewer people would voice them while more would be willing to listen.” – Michael Wakcher
I especially like the one about sandwiches. I don’t know how many sandwiches her students would be willing to offer, but it made me smile.
Hope those help, Sara!
