Complaining quotes by N.D. Wilson
#1. Lay your life down. Your heartbeats cannot be hoarded. Your reservoir of breaths is draining away. You have hands, blister them while you can. You have bones, make them strain-they can carry nothing in the grave. You have lungs, let them spill with laughter. With an average life expectancy of 78.2 years in the US (subtracting eight hours a day for sleep), I have around 250,00 conscious hours remaining to me in which I could be smiling or scowling, rejoicing in my life, in this race, in this story, or moaning and complaining about my troubles. I can be giving my fingers, my back, my mind, my words, my breaths, to my wife and my children and my neighbors, or I can grasp after the vapor and the vanity for myself, dragging my feet, afraid to die and therefore afraid to live. And, like Adam, I will still die in the end. #Quote by N.D. Wilson
Complaining quotes by Anne Gracie
#2. They'd be complaining about having to walk, and screeching at me to 'do something, Freddy, do something!'"
"But what could you do?" she said, puzzled.
"Carry them, probably." He gave her a hopeful look. "Do you want me to carry you? #Quote by Anne Gracie
Complaining quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#3. Did he suggest taking you for a walk in the moonlight?"
"How did you know?"
Virginia sighed. "That's what he does. I think it's a kind of challenge for him-to see if he can get young women to let him steal a kiss. If he succeeds..." She trailed off with a frown.
"If he succeeds, then what?" Celia prodded.
"Frankly, I'm not sure. That's as far as the girls ever get in complaining to me about him. First, they tell me he kissed them and it was like communing on some 'ethereal plane.'" She snorted. "Then they protest that they were sure he loved them. And then they start crying. It all goes downhill from there."
"You don't think he actually-"
"No!" She chewed on her lip. "That is, I don't think so. It's hard to know with Pierce. He's so unpredictable." Her gaze met Celia's. "But I'd hate to think of him getting you off alone and attempting-"
"You needn't worry about that," Celia said. "That's what I have Betty for."
Celia reached into her reticule and pulled out her ladies' pocket pistol.
Virginia leapt back. "Oh, my word! Does your family know you carry that around?"
"I doubt it. I don't think they'd approve."
"I should say not!" Virginia surveyed it curiously. "Is it loaded?"
"Only with powder. There's no ball."
"Thank heaven for that. Still, aren't you worried it will go off by itself?"
"No. It has two protections to keep it from firing accidentally. I made sure of that when I purchased it." Sh #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Complaining quotes by Jack Ketchum
#4. Thinking about writing isn't writing. Planning to write isn't writing. Neither is talking about it, posting about it, or complaining how hard it is. These may be part of the process. But only writing is writing. #Quote by Jack Ketchum
Complaining quotes by Eliezer Yudkowsky
#5. So much of a rationalist's skill is below the level of words. It makes for challenging work in trying to convey the Art through blog posts. People will agree with you, but then, in the next sentence, do something subdeliberative that goes in the opposite direction. Not that I'm complaining! A major reason I'm posting here is to observe what my words haven't conveyed. #Quote by Eliezer Yudkowsky
Complaining quotes by Dwight L. Moody
#6. If you were to spend a month feeding on the precious promises of God, you would not be going about with your heads hanging down like bulrushes, complaining how poor you are; but you would lift up your heads with confidence, and proclaim the riches of His grace because you could not help it. #Quote by Dwight L. Moody
Complaining quotes by Dejan Stojanovic
#7. Some people complain there are too many people on earth,
Some people complain about secret societies,
Some people accuse others of not being able to wake up early.
Almost all people complain about something. #Quote by Dejan Stojanovic
Complaining quotes by Emma Donoghue
#8. It was like wanting ice cream instead of meat loaf, and being told that children in refugee camps would be grateful for the meat loaf. Yes, of course she had nothing to complain about, compared to so many people, but when had that ever stopped anyone from complaining? Happiness was a balloon that always hovered just out of arm's reach. #Quote by Emma Donoghue
Complaining quotes by Anonymous
#9. Do everything without complaining and arguing, 15 so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people. 16 Hold firmly to the word of life; then, on the day of Christ's return, I will be proud that I did not run the race in vain and that my work was not useless. #Quote by Anonymous
Complaining quotes by Miya Yamanouchi
#10. The difference between a conventional counsellor and an empowerment counsellor is that a conventional therapist will allow you to dwell in your pit of misery for months, years and possibly even decades; whereas an empowerment counsellor will challenge you to recognise that your past pains and seemingly negative experiences are the very key to accessing your greatest self. #Quote by Miya Yamanouchi
Complaining quotes by Robert Harris
#11. This sort of talk always bores me: old men complaining that the world is going to the dogs. It's so banal. #Quote by Robert Harris
Complaining quotes by Mooji
#12. Your mantra is thank you. Just keep saying thank you. Don't explain. Don't complain. Just say thank you. Say thank you to existence. #Quote by Mooji
Complaining quotes by Francis Frangipane
#13. The very quality of your life, whether you love it or hate it, is based upon how thankful you are toward God. It is one's attitude that determines whether life unfolds into a place of blessedness or wretchedness. Indeed, looking at the same rose bush, some people complain that the roses have thorns while others rejoice that some thorns come with roses. It all depends on your perspective.

This is the only life you will have before you enter eternity. If you want to find joy, you must first find thankfulness. Indeed, the one who is thankful for even a little enjoys much. But the unappreciative soul is always miserable, always complaining. He lives outside the shelter of the Most High God.

Perhaps the worst enemy we have is not the devil but our own tongue. James tells us, "The tongue is set among our members as that which . . . sets on fire the course of our life" (James 3:6). He goes on to say this fire is ignited by hell. Consider: with our own words we can enter the spirit of heaven or the agonies of hell!

It is hell with its punishments, torments and misery that controls the life of the grumbler and complainer! Paul expands this thought in 1 Corinthians 10:10, where he reminds us of the Jews who "grumble[d] . . . and were destroyed by the destroyer." The fact is, every time we open up to grumbling and complaining, the quality of our life is reduced proportionally -- a destroyer is bringing our life to ruin!

People often ask me, #Quote by Francis Frangipane
Complaining quotes by Natsuki Takaya
#14. Normally I hate people who whine all the time, but in your case, it would be okay to complain. Be selfish, say what you want once in a while. It's okay to let yourself be sad. -Kyo talking to Tohru #Quote by Natsuki Takaya
Complaining quotes by Tony Abbott
#15. When politicians complain about the media, it strikes me as resembling footballers complaining about the umpire. #Quote by Tony Abbott
Complaining quotes by Philip Zaleski
#16. Charles Williams loved his son with reservations, complaining that "a child is a guest of a somewhat inconsistent temperament, rather difficult to get rid of, almost pushing; a poor relation rather than a pleasant kind. #Quote by Philip Zaleski
Complaining quotes by Katie Ashley
#17. Let me guess. This extremely horny moment was made possible by pregnancy hormones?
Her giggle vibrated against his cheek. "Yes it was. Ugh, they're insane." She released his member and pulled away. "I think I'm starting to understand what it's like to be you."
Throwing his head back, Aidan roared with laughter. "You mean what it feels like to be a horndog?"
Wide-eyed, she replied, "uh-huh."
"Then why did you pull away?"
"Well, because-"
"That wasn't me complaining, babe. #Quote by Katie Ashley
Complaining quotes by Rachel Van Dyken
#18. No… your punishment is to babysit. No complaining, and I swear to all that is holy, if you touch her – even by accident – I'm cutting off your hands."
"What if she falls?"
"Then you sure as hell better hope she lands on a tree branch instead of your arms. I mean it, Chase. #Quote by Rachel Van Dyken
Complaining quotes by Tom Welling
#19. I have so much chaos in my life, it's become normal. You become used to it. You have to just relax, calm down, take a deep breath and try to see how you can make things work rather than complain about how they're wrong. #Quote by Tom Welling
Complaining quotes by Kenneth Fisher
#20. The more you talk about investing problems, the worse you feel. Instead of complaining, it's better to do something. #Quote by Kenneth Fisher
Complaining quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#21. Every one complains of a poor memory, no one of a weak judgment. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Complaining quotes by Kid Rock
#22. When you're on TV in America, the girls love you. I'm not complaining. #Quote by Kid Rock
Complaining quotes by Rita Rudner
#23. Good weather all the week, but come the weekend the weather stinks. When the weather is too hot they complain, too cold they complain, and when it's just right, they're watching TV. #Quote by Rita Rudner
Complaining quotes by Helen Steiner Rice
#24. Stop wishing for things you complain you have not, and start making the best of all that you've got. #Quote by Helen Steiner Rice
Complaining quotes by Richard Jackson
#25. Last night, the stars on the water were trap doors. The crows
with their charred wings are complaining to a hawk. It's time
to pack up the sunsets the dawns and move on. #Quote by Richard Jackson
Complaining quotes by Mackenzi Lee
#26. You're still daft."
"Are you complaining?"
"No," he says, giving a quick tug on my sleeve that turns into his fingers pressed into my palm in a way that makes me weak in the knees. "I sort of love it. #Quote by Mackenzi Lee
Complaining quotes by Victor Manan
#27. If you have to run then learn from Bolt, if you have to fight watch Muhammad Ali`s jab and grab punches, if dunking with a basketball does it for you why not pull a Vince Carter or fly in like Michael Jordan , if science and evolution tickles your fancy have you read "Evolution" by Charles Darwin?

Well, Like Martin Luther king said " If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well."

So pickup that broom , get started and stop complaining! #Quote by Victor Manan
Complaining quotes by Eva Green
#28. I hope I will not be typecast as a Bond girl for the rest of my life. I'm very proud of being a part of the Bond family, but I don't want to be the sexy girl forever. I'm not meaning to complain, but I just want to be taken seriously. #Quote by Eva Green
Complaining quotes by Missy Franklin
#29. Sometimes we complain, but there is something beautiful about waking up before everyone to get better at what we love. #Quote by Missy Franklin
Complaining quotes by Seneca
#30. Why do we complain of Nature? She has shown herself kindly; life, if you know how to use it, is long. But one man is possessed by an avarice that is insatiable, another by a toilsome devotion to tasks that are useless; one man is besotted with wine, another is paralyzed by sloth; one man is exhausted by an ambition that always hangs upon the decision of others, another, driven on by the greed of the trader, is led over all lands and all seas by the hope of gain; some are tormented by a passion for war and are always either bent upon inflicting danger upon others or concerned about their own; some there are who are worn out by voluntary servitude in a thankless attendance upon the great; many are kept busy either in the pursuit of other men's fortune or in complaining of their own; many, following no fixed aim, shifting and inconstant and dissatisfied, are plunged by their fickleness into plans that are ever new; some have no fixed principle by which to direct their course, but Fate takes them unawares while they loll and yawn - so surely does it happen that I cannot doubt the truth of that utterance which the greatest of poets delivered with all the seeming of an oracle: "The part of life we really live is small."5 For all the rest of existence is not life, but merely time. Vices beset us and surround us on every side, and they do not permit us to rise anew and lift up our eyes for the discernment of truth, but they keep us down when once they have overwhelmed us and we are c #Quote by Seneca
Complaining quotes by James A. Michener
#31. I was brought up in the great tradition of the late nineteenth century: that a writer never complains, never explains and never disdains. #Quote by James A. Michener
Complaining quotes by Meg Cabot
#32. Sometimes I just want to write a really intense love scene. But I can't do that in my books for teens, or parents will complain - believe me, I've tried. #Quote by Meg Cabot
Complaining quotes by Nick Vujicic
#33. I have the choice to be angry at God for what i don't have, or be thankful for what i do have #Quote by Nick Vujicic
Complaining quotes by Bob Hope
#34. Where else but in America could the women's liberation movement take off their bras, then go on TV to complain about their lack of support? #Quote by Bob Hope
Complaining quotes by William Congreve
#35. Would any thing but a madman complain of uncertainty? Uncertainty and expectation are joys of life; security is an insipid thing; and the overtaking and possessing of a wish discovers the folly of the chase. #Quote by William Congreve
Complaining quotes by Guy Finley
#36. Stop Looking for Permission to Be Yourself.
The true individual is no more concerned over what others may think of him or her than is the sun troubled by people complaining that it's too warm, or that it shines too bright! #Quote by Guy Finley
Complaining quotes by Ivan Krastev
#37. Democracy has always been in crisis: democracy is all about practicing the art of bearable dissatisfaction. In democratic societies, people often complain about their leaders and their institutions. The gap between the ideal democracy and the existing one cannot be bridged. #Quote by Ivan Krastev
Complaining quotes by Jonathan Stroud
#38. Lockwood stepped aside, his boots crunching across the salt, to stand and study the paper beneath the light. No such luck with George; he came in close, his eyes bulging so much behind his spectacles, they almost pressed against the glass.
'I can't *believe* you did that, Lucy. You're crazy! *Purposefully* freeing a ghost!'
'It was an experiment,' I said. 'Why are you complaining? You're always messing about with that stupid jar of yours.'
'There's no comparison. I keep that ghost *in* in the jar. Anyway, it's scientific research. I do it under carefully controlled conditions.'
'Carefully controlled? I found it in the bathtub the other day!'
'That's right. I was testing the ghost's reaction to heat.'
'And to bubble bath? There were bubbles all over the jar. You put some nice soapy fragrance in that water, and...' I stared at him. 'Do you get in the tub with it, George?'
His face flushed. 'No, I do not. Not as a rule. I - I was saving time. I was just getting in myself when it occurred to me I could do a useful experiment about the resistance of ectoplasm to warmth. I wanted to see if it would contract...' He waved his hands wildly in the air. 'Wait! Why am I explaining myself to *you*? You just unleashed a ghost in our house! #Quote by Jonathan Stroud
Complaining quotes by Jack Williamson
#39. Wendre had appealed to Horn as no woman ever had. She had a man's mind and a woman's heart. She was self-reliant, proud, courageous. She grasped the situation quickly, accepted the odds, and did what had to be done without complaining. This was no spoiled child of empire, no sheltered darling of an all-powerful father; this was a woman fit to stand and fight beside any barbarian from the restless marches, made for love and ready to battle for it. #Quote by Jack Williamson
Complaining quotes by Gina Carano
#40. I have gotten some of the most beautiful experiences that a person can possibly ask for so I'm not at all complaining. #Quote by Gina Carano
Complaining quotes by Kate Adie
#41. Hair is also a problem. I remember once, when I was reporting from Beirut at the height of the civil war, someone wrote in to the BBC complaining about my appearance. #Quote by Kate Adie
Complaining quotes by Ralph Marston
#42. When you find yourself ready to complain about what you don't have, stop for a moment to consider what incredible things you do have. And resolve to make the most of it all. #Quote by Ralph Marston
Complaining quotes by Sameh Elsayed
#43. Complaining from lack of food doesn't always affect my emotions. complaining from lack of knowledge, passion, creative ideas and happiness always does. #Quote by Sameh Elsayed
Complaining quotes by Hans Matheson
#44. Put me in a costume, and I'm your man. I must have one of those faces which seems to suit period drama more than modern films and TV programmes. But I'm not complaining, I love going back in time. I feel quite lucky because nobody knows who I am. I can walk about and have ordinary conversations with people. #Quote by Hans Matheson
Complaining quotes by Wayward Son - Rainbow Rowell
#45. I'm driving. We're all wearing sunglasses. We're listening to The Doors, and Baz is complaining about it. But he's got his shirt unbuttoned to his navel, so I'm not complaining about anything. The sky is huge and blue and full of lens flare. America... #Quote by Wayward Son - Rainbow Rowell
Complaining quotes by Leonardo DiCaprio
#46. I hate complaining about paparazzi, I hate complaining about being recognised, because if I ultimately didn't want to be an actor or in the public eye, I would quit doing what I do. That's not the reason I do it, but I love the work so much that it's worth it. #Quote by Leonardo DiCaprio
Complaining quotes by Jennifer Cosgrove
#47. James spoke first. "Hey."
God. One word, and my cheeks heated. It might have helped if he hadn't looked like he wanted to drag me across the table and kiss the hell out of me. How had this become my life? Not that I was complaining. Really, really not complaining. #Quote by Jennifer Cosgrove
Complaining quotes by Meghan Daum
#48. Almost nothing is more tedious than complaining about the weather. #Quote by Meghan Daum
Complaining quotes by Hilaire Belloc
#49. In the same way the eminence attaching to the mere possession of great wealth disappoints us nine times out of ten, especially if the wealth has been accumulated rapidly. For great wealth is accumulated rapidly by cunning or chance, or a mixture of the two. Cunning has nothing to do with high qualities; it is rather a presumption against them; while chance has nothing to do with them either. Therefore it is that men are always complaining after meeting So-and-so, that he seemed to be astonishingly stupid, though he made a million in ten years and started as a pauper. #Quote by Hilaire Belloc
Complaining quotes by Charles Dickens
#50. I am what you designed me to be.I am your blade. You cannot now complain if you also feel the hurt #Quote by Charles Dickens
Complaining quotes by Nanette Mathews
#51. When you realize your life isn't heading in the direction you wish, rather than wasting time complaining about the situation, just focus on the direction you wish to proceed with determination. #Quote by Nanette Mathews
Complaining quotes by Paulo Coelho
#52. But when he thought to complain about the burden of its weight, he remembered that, because he had the jacket, he had withstood the cold of the dawn.
We have to be prepared for change, he thought, and he was grateful for the jacket's weight and warmth.
The jacket had a purpose, and so did the boy. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Complaining quotes by Robert Graves
#53. Before an attack, the platoon pools all its available cash and the survivors divide it up afterwards. Those who are killed can't complain, the wounded would have given far more than that to escape as they have, and the unwounded regard the money as a consolation prize for still being here. #Quote by Robert Graves
Complaining quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#54. God gave me this great book to preach from, and if He has put anything in it you think is not fit, go and complain to Him, not to me. I am simply his servant, and if His errand that I am to tell is objectionable, I cannot help it. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Complaining quotes by Abigail Adams
#55. I hate to complain ... No one is without difficulties, whether in high or low life, and every person knows best where their own shoe pinches. #Quote by Abigail Adams
Complaining quotes by Jimmy Johnson
#56. I've heard all the coaches complaining about the new CBA rules limiting padded practice. I don't like the reduction to just 15 padded practices during the season. When I coached, we always practiced in pads; and three days a week. #Quote by Jimmy Johnson
Complaining quotes by Dixy Gandhi
#57. What did you learn?"
"Letting go of my past, because it's all soot, nothing is left
of it, if I wandered there for long I would be running in circles
in the dark, no hope, no life. And if I chose to live in those
places rebuilt from ashes, I can never get rid of the darkness
which would prevail underneath."
"The present is my ray of hope. I could have stayed there,
complaining about the gloominess of the light, and regretting
not having turned a corner to explore a new horizon at the same
time I needed to respect that light because it was my savior from
the dark. I learnt it finally and that's why I reached here today
and found you #Quote by Dixy Gandhi
Complaining quotes by Hattie McDaniel
#58. Why should I complain about making $7,000 a week playing a maid? If I didn't, I'd be making $7 a week being one. #Quote by Hattie McDaniel
Complaining quotes by Jacques Barzun
#59. We may complain and cavil at the anarchy which is the amateurs natural element, but in soberness we must agree that if the amateur did not exist it would be necessary to invent him. #Quote by Jacques Barzun
Complaining quotes by John Cleese
#60. We left the Bentley and Tim at a garage, and Alan and I travelled back to Brussels to hire a much less magnificent vehicle. When we picked Tim up the next morning, he told us that he'd spent the night in his room with a 'bird'. Intrigued, we questioned him closely, and learned that he had been woken in the middle of the night by a strange, rather alarming noise and that when he had put the light on he had discovered a turkey vomiting on the mantelpiece. He'd thought of complaining but found that his phrase book did not cover this contingency. #Quote by John Cleese
Complaining quotes by Madonna Ciccone
#61. I feel like everybody needs to take a sabbatical and go to Russia and Africa and work in orphanages and really witness true suffering. And then you'll just feel ridiculous for ever complaining about anything. Everybody needs that kind of reality check. #Quote by Madonna Ciccone
Complaining quotes by Dave Willis
#62. Pray when you feel like worrying. Give thanks when you feel like complaining. Keep going when you feel like quitting. #Quote by Dave Willis
Complaining quotes by Martial
#63. You complain, friend Swift, of the length of my epigrams, but you yourself write nothing. Yours are shorter. #Quote by Martial
Complaining quotes by George R R Martin
#64. Not that I'm complaining. It was better than my old dream, where Harma Dogshead was feeding me to her pigs."
"Harma's dead." Jon said.
"But not the pigs. They look at me the way Slayer used to look at ham. Not to say that the wildlings mean us harm. Aye, we hacked their gods apart and made them burn the pieces, but we gave them onion soup. What's a god compared to a nice bowl of onion soup? I could do with mine myself. #Quote by George R R Martin
Complaining quotes by M.F. Moonzajer
#65. Once my brother was very angry on my parents and told them "You should have killed me when I was a child"
Interestingly I was present and told him "I don't think it is still too late" and I have never heard him complaining about life. #Quote by M.F. Moonzajer
Complaining quotes by Shahrukh Khan
#66. I don't sit around complaining about the lack of good roles. I will play Raj 85 times and still make him different. #Quote by Shahrukh Khan
Complaining quotes by Tom Robbins
#67. All things considered, I've learned more from talking to painters than talking to writers. Not that painters are smarter than writers, such is seldom the case, but in conversation writers are inclined to waste an inordinate amount of time either bragging or bellyaching about reviews and royalties, complaining about their publishers, or dissing other authors. Painters, being equally insecure, can likewise come across as boring and bitchy
it's tough being creative in a materialistic society
but since they labor not in vineyards of verbiage but upon ice floes of visual images, they tend to function with fewer inhibitions than the wordsmiths when it comes to vocally exploring and expressing ideas. Since no one judges their speech, comparing it to their written work, they don't feel so acutely the weight of language. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Complaining quotes by Pietro Metastasio
#68. The pilot who is always dreading a rock or a tempest must not complain if he remain a poor fisherman. We must at times trust, something to fortune, for fortune has often some share in what happens. #Quote by Pietro Metastasio
Complaining quotes by Charles James Napier
#69. Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs.[To Hindu priests complaining to him about the prohibition of Sati religious funeral practice of burning widows alive on her husband's funeral pyre.] #Quote by Charles James Napier
Complaining quotes by Qais Ghanem
#70. SCSC: Stop Complaining, Start Contributing #Quote by Qais Ghanem
Complaining quotes by Ben Cohen
#71. If you're aware of injustice, you can either ignore it, say there is nothing you can do about it, complain about it and not do anything, or put your energies into doing something about it. #Quote by Ben Cohen
Complaining quotes by Eiji Yoshikawa
#72. Here
you warriors
why this moaning and complaining? Have you no more sense than toads and vipers? Our time hasn't come. Have you no patience? Are we not the 'trodden weed' still? The time is not yet here for us to raise our heads. Must you still complain? #Quote by Eiji Yoshikawa
Complaining quotes by George Orwell
#73. When the first shock had worn off and when in spite of everything - in spite of their terror of the dogs, and of the habit, developed through long years, of never complaining, never criticising, no matter what happened - they might have uttered some word of protest. #Quote by George Orwell
Complaining quotes by Anne Isabella Thackeray Ritchie
#74. People seem to think themselves in some ways superior to heaven itself, when they complain of the sorrow and want round about them. And yet it is not the devil for certain who puts pity into their hearts. #Quote by Anne Isabella Thackeray Ritchie
Complaining quotes by William T. Vollmann
#75. Women are sewers just like we are, the once pure boys recognize with a start; it's raw sewage that produces fertilization; once you understand that you can be fond of yourself and members of the Opposite Sex, but you can never quite see them again as ice cream bars. I, the author, don't really mind this, for I love all girls and love to hug and kiss them and cheer them up when they cry, and have them perform all the same services for me; and a woman's saliva is certainly a miracle, think of all those enzymes and germs; and if I took and wrote the chemicals down on a sheet of paper, all COOOHs and sighs, it would look pretty, just like a face all pretty, like the dear round moon-face of her who loves you or the creamy-freckled skin and blue eyes and heavenly hair of that Irish beauty back in college, so don't think I'm complaining. #Quote by William T. Vollmann
Complaining quotes by David Letterman
#76. Childhood. I wish I had something to complain about. #Quote by David Letterman
Complaining quotes by Tina Fey
#77. But do not try to get ahead of Donna and initiate the complaining, no matter how sure you are that she'll agree. Because Donna will leave you hanging every time. #Quote by Tina Fey
Complaining quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#78. The only nations which deny the utility of provincial liberties are those which have fewest of them; in other words, those who are unacquainted with the institution are the only persons who passed censure upon it. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Complaining quotes by James Oswald
#79. Neighbours complaining about someone's dog making an awful racket. You could hardly blame the poor beast, its owner had died in her bed at least a fortnight before and there hadn't been much left of the old girl worth eating. #Quote by James Oswald
Complaining quotes by Joan Robinson
#80. A sure sign of a crisis is the prevalence of cranks. It is characteristic of a crisis in theory that cranks get a hearing from the public which orthodoxy is failing to satisfy. #Quote by Joan Robinson
Complaining quotes by Ezra Klein
#81. Unfortunately, the term "identity politics" has been weaponized. It is most often used by speakers to describe politics as practiced by members of historically marginalized groups. If you're black and you're worried about police brutality, that's identity politics. If you're a woman and you're worried about the male-female pay gap, that's identity politics. But if you're a rural gun owner decrying universal background checks as tyranny, or a billionaire CEO complaining that high tax rates demonize success, or a Christian insisting on Nativity scenes in public squares - well, that just good, old fashioned politics. With a quick sleight of hand, identity becomes something that only marginalized groups have.

The term "identity politics," in this usage, obscures rather than illuminates; it's used to diminish and discredit the concerns of the weaker groups by making them look self-interested, special pleading in order to clear the agenda for the concerns of stronger groups, which are framed as more rational, proper topics for political debate. But in wielding identity as a blade, we have lost it as a lens, blinding ourselves in a bid for political advantage. WE are left searching in vaid for what we refuse to allow ourselves to see. #Quote by Ezra Klein
Complaining quotes by Sappho
#82. Girls, be good to these spirits of music and poetry
that breast your threshold with their scented gifts.
Lift the lyre, clear and sweet, they leave with you.
As for me, this body is now so arthritic
I cannot play, hardly even hold the instrument.
Can you believe my white hair was once black?
And oh, the soul grows heavy with the body.
Complaining knee-joints creak at every move.
To think I danced as delicate as a deer!
Some gloomy poems came from these thoughts:
useless: we are all born to lose life,
and what is worse, girls, to lose youth.
The legend of the goddess of the dawn
I'm sure you know: how rosy Eos
madly in love with gorgeous young Tithonus
swept him like booty to her hiding-place
but then forgot he would grow old and grey
while she in despair pursued her immortal way. #Quote by Sappho
Complaining quotes by Zach Braff
#83. Over half a century on and they're still complaining about it. Compare it to the fact that Garden State didn't win an Oscar and they seem a little petty if you ask me. I guess that just goes to show what kind of people they really are. #Quote by Zach Braff
Complaining quotes by Lemony Snicket
#84. An apocryphal story - the word "apocryphal" here means "obviously untrue" - tells of two people, long ago, who were very bored, and that instead of complaining about it they sat up all night and invented the game of chess so that everyone else in the world, on evenings when there is nothing to do, can also be bored by the perplexing and tedious game they invented. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Complaining quotes by Yvonne Pierre
#85. Some people simply REFUSE to be happy. If they were stuck in a tunnel you can show them the way out and give them a light, but they will just sit there complaining about how they got there. They are more willing to fight to STAY there instead of fighting to coming out. Okay it happened. Now what? Stop focusing so hard on how you got there, focus on how you're going to get out! Keep it moving! #Quote by Yvonne Pierre
Complaining quotes by San Juan De La Cruz
#86. Many praise and bless Jesus as long as they receive some consolation from Him, but if He hide Himself and leave them for a little while, they fall either into complaining or into excessive dejection. #Quote by San Juan De La Cruz
Complaining quotes by Frank J. Fleming
#87. So you should be grateful about most everything, because, being an American, you live a very privileged life. There's just a tiny amount of room for complaining, because there are a few legitimate things worth complaining about. Like, let's say you watched a show about people who crashed on an island, and it was full of interesting mysteries, and you kept watching for six seasons, hoping to find answers to all the mysteries - but then in the finale they totally didn't answer anything and acted like it was the characters and their resolutions I was supposed to care about - like Jack's constant whining should have been my focus rather than the smoke monster or the mysterious hatch. That's awful. That's worth complaining about . . . even years later. #Quote by Frank J. Fleming
Complaining quotes by Joe Biden
#88. Right now, you know, everyone one is going to be there for you." I explained. "Everyone will surround you with love and you'll be busy and have things to keep your mind off the worst. And then in six weeks, or may be twelve weeks, everybody else's life is going to start to get back to normal. But your life isn't going to be normal again. As a matter of fact, as you probably understand already, it's going to get harder for you. And after a while you're going to start feeling guilty because you're going to be going to the same people constantly for help, or just to talk. And as their lives get back to normal, you going to start to worry about leaning on them too much. There might come a time when you think, I'm asking too much. I've got to stop complaining. So when you're down and you feel guilty for burdening your family and friends," I said, "pick up the phone and call me. #Quote by Joe Biden
Complaining quotes by John Ruskin
#89. There are, indeed, two forms of discontent: one laborious, the other indolent and complaining. We respect the man of laborious desire, but let us not suppose that his restlessness is peace, or his ambition meekness. It is because of the special connection of meekness with contentment that it is promised that the meek shall 'inherit the earth.' Neither covetous men, nor the grave, can inherit anything; they can but consume. Only contentment can possess. #Quote by John Ruskin
Complaining quotes by Henry Rollins
#90. Life is full of choices, if you have the guts to go for it. That's why I get immediately bored with anyone's complaining about how boring their life is, or how bad their town is. Fucking leave and go somewhere else. Or don't. #Quote by Henry Rollins
Complaining quotes by Marie Stopes
#91. You can take no credit for beauty at sixteen. But if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your soul's own doing. #Quote by Marie Stopes
Complaining quotes by Margaret Heffernan
#92. Those in powerless positions aren't about to complain about bullying bosses, abusive supervisors or corrupt co-workers. There is no safe way to do so and no process that promises redress. #Quote by Margaret Heffernan
Complaining quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#93. Infantile people complain and say that God is cruel or that there is no God. Mature people, however, know that there is wisdom and sometimes an eternal kindness in God's refusals. #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale
Complaining quotes by Seneca The Younger
#94. We all sorely complain of the shortness of time, and yet have much more than we know what to do with. Our lives are either spent in doing nothing at all, or in doing nothing to the purpose, or in doing nothing that we ought to do. We are always complaining that our days are few, and acting as though there would be no end of them. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Complaining quotes by Adrienne Kress
#95. Then he smiled. It was the first time I'd seen him smile, and it threw me. It was kind of…awesome.
He spoke: "I can see through your dress."
"What?" I said automatically.
"The light coming from behind you like that. Can see right through it." The smile widened.
"Look, I'm not complaining. And since you haven't moved, I'm guessing you don't mind me looking."
I had no idea what to do, so I stumbled further into the shed and walked to the side into the dark so I wasn't being backlit anymore.
"And you've come inside, so you want to be closer to me."
"No!" This I shouted a little too loudly. And to prove how "no" I was, I pointed the shears at him.
"You gonna cut it off?" He raised an eyebrow.
"Cut what off?" Damn it. I had to stop answering him automatically like that. Think before you speak, Riley. Think!The young man glanced down at himself, and I almost followed his look until I remembered that he was totally naked, and then I understood what he meant.God, no, I hadn't even thought of that! Who did he think I was?Maybe the girl who shot him in the face maybe? #Quote by Adrienne Kress
Complaining quotes by Russ Feingold
#96. Most of my town hall meetings had always been love fests, and some of my guys used to complain: 'I'd like for somebody to yell at you a bit.' #Quote by Russ Feingold
Complaining quotes by Jacoby Ellsbury
#97. You can't complain when people appreciate what you're doing. #Quote by Jacoby Ellsbury
Complaining quotes by Terry Pratchett
#98. You see, the only thing the good people are good at is overthrowing the bad people. And you're good at that, I'll grant you. But the trouble is that it's the only thing you're good at. One day it's the ringing of the bells and the casting down of the evil tyrant, and the next it's everyone sitting around complaining that ever since the tyrant was overthrown no one's been taking out the trash. Because the bad people know how to plan. It's part of the specification, you might say. Every evil tyrant has a plan to rule the world. The good people don't seem to have the knack. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Complaining quotes by Christine De Pizan
#99. Ah, child and youth, if you knew the bliss which resides in the taste of knowledge, and the evil and ugliness that lies in ignorance, how well you are advised to not complain of the pain and labor of learning. #Quote by Christine De Pizan
Complaining quotes by Tony Dungy
#100. When you're in a situation, you can complain about it, you can feel sorry for yourself, you can do a lot of things. But how are you gonna make the situation better? #Quote by Tony Dungy
Complaining quotes by Joel Osteen
#101. MAY 31 The Power of Your Words Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. PROVERBS 18:21 NASB OUR WORDS have tremendous power and are similar to seeds. By speaking them aloud, they are planted in our subconscious minds, take root, grow, and produce fruit of the same kind. Whether we speak positive or negative words, we will reap exactly what we sow. That's why we need to be extremely careful what we think and say. The Bible compares the tongue to the small rudder of a huge ship, which controls the ship's direction (see James 3:4). Similarly, your tongue will control the direction of your life. You create an environment for either good or evil with your words, and if you're always murmuring, complaining, and talking about how bad life is treating you, you're going to live in a pretty miserable world. Use your words to change your negative situations and fill them with life. #Quote by Joel Osteen
Complaining quotes by Andrew B. Ray
#102. Complainers are louder than thankers. #Quote by Andrew B. Ray
Complaining quotes by Abiodun Fijabi
#103. Here is announcing vacancies for numerous positions as complainants. Any or no qualification is acceptable. Both genders and all age groups may apply. While no experience is needed, candidate with good blame game skill have an advantage. Blame game skill is the art of holding someone else responsible for your actions and, especially, for the rot in the society. You have an infinitely long list of co-workers to welcome you into their fold. There is a caveat, though. Successful candidates must be willing to surrender their worth and their dream, as they may conflict with their work schedule. In the same vein, leaders or would-be leaders need not apply. #Quote by Abiodun Fijabi
Complaining quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#104. It had to be done," Rumfoord told Billy, speaking of the destruction of Dresden. "I know," said Billy. "That's war." "I know. I'm not complaining." "It must have been hell on the ground." "It was," said Billy Pilgrim. "Pity the men who had to do it." "I do." "You must have had mixed feelings, there on the ground." "It was all right," said Billy. "Everything is all right, and everybody has to do exactly what he does. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Complaining quotes by Will Bowen
#105. A belief is an absolute but arbitrary mental stance. #Quote by Will Bowen
Complaining quotes by Charlaine Harris
#106. You want to own your own life," Eric said. "As much as anyone can." "Just when I think you're very simple, you say something complex," Eric said. "Are you complaining?" I tried to smile, failed. "No. #Quote by Charlaine Harris
Complaining quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#107. The vast majority of people make complaining seem to be a basic human need. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Complaining quotes by Ishmael Reed
#108. I was on a panel with light skinned Blacks and a famous gay science fiction writer, who were complaining about how Blacks are against gays and light skinned Blacks and how intolerant Blacks are of different groups. My position was that Blacks were among the most humanistic, tolerant groups in the country and that across the street from my house in Oakland was one inhabited by White gays. #Quote by Ishmael Reed
Complaining quotes by Curtis Sittenfeld
#109. Hannah is missing school because one night, her father exiled her and her mother and Allison from the house. This was, obviously, somewhat insane. But it wasn't more insane or cruel than other things he's done, which is not to say he's insane or cruel all the time. He's himself; he can be perfectly pleasant; he's the weather system they live with , and all the behavior, whenever he is around, hinges on his mood. Don't the three of them understand that living with him simply is what it is? To complain or resist would be as useless as complaining about or resisting a tornado. #Quote by Curtis Sittenfeld
Complaining quotes by Evinda Lepins
#110. Complaining opens the door to conflict and thankfulness slams it shut! #Quote by Evinda Lepins
Complaining quotes by Tom Robbins
#111. Wasn't crying. I've had a bad day. Another one. One in a series of bad days. I'm not complaining. Bad days are my bag. They're time-consuming, however, and I'm a busy girl. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Complaining quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#112. But he'll never be fully recognised, because Scots literature these days is all about complaining and moaning and being injured in one's soul. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Complaining quotes by Anton Chekhov
#113. I have no faith in our hypocritical, false, hysterical, uneducated and lazy intelligentsia when they suffer and complain: their oppression comes from within. I believe in individual people. I see salvation in discrete individuals, intellectuals and peasants, strewn hither and yon throughout Russia. They have the strength, although there are few of them. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Complaining quotes by Alexander Smith
#114. The sea complains upon a thousand shores. #Quote by Alexander Smith
Complaining quotes by Donald A. Norman
#115. Forget the complaints against complexity; instead, complain about confusion. #Quote by Donald A. Norman
Complaining quotes by Michelle Tea
#116. One of the most powerful things I'd learned since getting sober is to love and accept life on life's terms. Alcoholics have a hard time doing this; we're little id-driven crybabies, guzzling and complaining about how nothing in this life goes the way we think it should. Accepting and even embracing the world as it is can be radical, and it can have powerful, positive results. #Quote by Michelle Tea
Complaining quotes by Kylie Scott
#117. So, come on," he said softly, taunting me. "What's the plan here, Ev? How were you going to convince me?"
"Oh. Well, I was um ... I was going to seduce you, I guess. And see what happened. Yeah ... "
"How? By complaining about me buying you stuff?"
"No. That was just an added bonus. You're welcome."
He licked his lips, but I saw the smile. "Right. Come on then, show me your moves."
"My moves?"
"Your seduction techniques. Come on, time's a-wasting." I hesitated and he clicked his tongue, impatient. "I'm only wearing a towel, baby. How hard can this be? #Quote by Kylie Scott
Complaining quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#118. The inhabitants of the Cape generally do not complain of their "soil," but will tell you that it is good enough for them to dry their fish on. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Complaining quotes by B. J. Thomas
#119. Raindrops keep fallin' on my head. But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turning red. Crying's not for me. Cause I ain't gonna stop the rain by complaining. #Quote by B. J. Thomas
Complaining quotes by Ai Yazawa
#120. Nana Oosaki, about Shin: I wonder if he's really eighteen. He looks sixteen. I'm sure he lied about his age ...
Nana Komatsu: See! You were complaining but you still read the application!
Shin: The studio's free! Great! <3
Nana Komatsu, thinking: So cute!
Nana Oosaki: I hope he's not in primary school ... children today are advanced. #Quote by Ai Yazawa
Complaining quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#121. It is the idle man, not the great worker, who is always complaining that he has no time or opportunity. #Quote by Orison Swett Marden
Complaining quotes by Tanya Byrne
#122. You must have found it hard at school as well, everyone complaining about homework and not having a car or being able to afford a dress from ASOS that they'll probably only wear once. Stupid shit I used to complain about as well that doesn't matter anymore. Oh boo hoo your cat died. Poor you. My mother was run down in the street by a drunk driver. Someone from the council had to scrub her blood off the pavement. #Quote by Tanya Byrne
Complaining quotes by Guy Finley
#123. Most people would rather complain about some painful life pattern than dare to meet the level of their own consciousness responsible for its repeated appearance ... and therein do the work needed to change it once and for all. #Quote by Guy Finley
Complaining quotes by Wanda Sykes
#124. You know the economy is bad when illegals start complaining that Americans are taking their jobs. #Quote by Wanda Sykes
Complaining quotes by Susanna Clarke
#125. The Duke of York remarked that King Ferdinand of Spain had sent a letter to the Prince Regent complaining that many parts of his kingdom had been rendered entirely unrecognizable by the English magician and demanding that Mr Strange return and restore the country to its original form. #Quote by Susanna Clarke
Complaining quotes by T. Harv Eker
#126. You can be a victim or you can be rich, but you can't be both. Listen up! Every time, and I mean every time, you blame, justify, or complain, you are slitting your financial throat. #Quote by T. Harv Eker
Complaining quotes by John McGahern
#127. They'd listen silenty, with grave faces: but once they'd turn to each other they'd smile cruelly. He couldn't have it both ways. He'd put himself outside and outside they'd make him stay. Neither brutality nor complaining could force a way in. #Quote by John McGahern
Complaining quotes by Richard Clayderman
#128. When I was 14-15 years old I was able to earn a little money from time to time but I'm not complaining since, very soon I could provide a normal living. I was discovered also by other musicians and they asked me to work with them. Even in my early age several well-known artists asked for my services both on the stage and in the studio. This experience proved to be very useful, musicians showed me various musical situations and various music experiments. #Quote by Richard Clayderman
Complaining quotes by Warren Farrell
#129. The rules of sexism do not free men from the terror of violence; they only keep men from complaining about it. #Quote by Warren Farrell
Complaining quotes by K.J. Parker
#130. One of these days I'd really like to win a battle, rather than just stand quiet while they lose it at me. You know, just to be able say I'd done it. But I'm not complaining. I mean, it works. #Quote by K.J. Parker
Complaining quotes by Jeff Goins
#131. This is one of the secrets to prolific publishing: being connected with the right people at the right time. It's not exactly fair and may not be what you signed up for, but it's how the world works. Learn to live with it. Or stop complaining that your work doesn't get published. There is no in-between. #Quote by Jeff Goins
Complaining quotes by William Friedkin
#132. But the audience is right. They're always, always right. You hear directors complain that the advertising was lousy, the distribution is no good, the date was wrong to open the film. I don't believe that. The audience is never wrong. Never. #Quote by William Friedkin
Complaining quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#133. It is impossible to say all that we think, even to our truest Friend. We may bid him farewell forever sooner than complain, for our complaint is too well grounded to be uttered. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau

Complaining quotes by Laini Taylor
#135. This gown, is it cut from shadow?" the general asked. "I can barely feel it between my fingers."
Not for want of trying, thought Madrigal.
"Perhaps it is a reflection of the night sky," he suggested, "skimmed from a pond?"
She supposed that he was being poetic. erotic, even. In return, as unerotically as possible- more like complaining of a stain that wouldn't come out-she said, "Yes, my lord. I went for a dip, and the reflection clung. #Quote by Laini Taylor
Complaining quotes by Angela Duckworth

Complaining quotes by Shannon Miller
#137. I don't think I have the mileage on me to really complain of any injuries yet. #Quote by Shannon Miller
Complaining quotes by Andrew Rilstone
#138. Actually, it meant a great deal: a very great deal. You don't have to believe that God exists to see that a story in which God takes on human form is a very different story from one in which God creates a messenger and tells that messenger to take on human form. The Passion of the Christ is a different movie depending on whether you think the person being eviscerated is God or just some guy. Athanasius thought that it was God who hung on a cross for the world; Arius thought that it was a created being who was not God. This is not very little; this is very big. Granted, the Creeds put it in terms of Aristotelian theories about "substance" and "essence": but there isn't much sense in complaining that technical documents are written in technical language if you are not prepared to pick up a standard work and look up what the words mean. #Quote by Andrew Rilstone
Complaining quotes by Steve Goodier
#139. The world can use more light and less noise. More solvers and fewer blamers. More folks showing a better way and fewer folks complaining about how much better things used to be. More folks offering help and fewer folks wringing their hands about the problems. More hope bringers and fewer hope killers. #Quote by Steve Goodier
Complaining quotes by Kendare Blake
#140. I can't believe I'm being so emo. I'm complaining to a girl who was brutally murdered at sixteen. #Quote by Kendare Blake
Complaining quotes by Lauren Oliver
#141. She's like a person looking through the wrong end of a telescope, complaining that everything looks small. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Complaining quotes by Sparky Anderson
#142. I understand people who boo us. It's like going to Broadway show, you pay for your tickets and expect to be entertained. When you're not, you have a right to complain. #Quote by Sparky Anderson
Complaining quotes by Daniel Patrick Moynihan
#143. Stubborn opposition to proposals often has no other basis than the complaining question, 'Why wasn't I consulted?' #Quote by Daniel Patrick Moynihan
Complaining quotes by Joyce Meyer
#144. There is a simple rule we can follow to guide us in our conversation: If it is good, uplifting, wholesome, and pleasant, say all you want to, but if it is evil, negative, critical, and complaining, then don't say it. Ask God to change your heart so there is not even a hint of wanting to say it. What is in our heart will eventually come out of our mouth, so we cannot change what we say unless we change what we think. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Complaining quotes by Julie Buxbaum
#145. One of the few perks of the shit so monumentally hitting the fan is you discover who your real tribe is. It's the only way through. So make sure you find yours, Kit."

"Okay," I say, and start assembling my team in my head. I think back to middle school, when we'd have to pick players for dodgeball in gym. David was always chosen last. I imagine him standing there, looking two feet above everyone else's heads, his hands flapping at his sides - something he still does occasionally, though I'm not sure he realizes it - and I want to go back in time and hug him, whisper in his ear that he can come stand by me. Tell him if he gets tired of flapping, he can hold my hand instead.

"I very much hope you'll consider including me," my mom says in her quietest voice, and I realize this is the closest someone like my mother gets to begging. When I don't immediately respond, she says, "At the very least, hashtag squad goals."

I laugh. My mom loves to try to talk like a teenager. A few weeks ago, I overheard her on the phone complaining about how she was tired of adulting and the last time we watched a romantic comedy together, she wanted to ship all the secondary characters.

"Yeah, we can work on that," I say, and realize just how much I've missed my mom recently. How I can't make it through without her. That there will always be room in my tribe #Quote by Julie Buxbaum
Complaining quotes by Joaquin Phoenix
#146. I'm very thankful for the people that I've had the opportunity to work with. I have a good life. It's been amazing. I'm not complaining. It's not like acting has ruined me so I have to leave. It's not that. I'm just done with it. #Quote by Joaquin Phoenix
Complaining quotes by Alesha Dixon
#147. I think people in England take things for granted, we complain about our NHS system and yes it's not perfect but believe me it's far better than what they've got here. #Quote by Alesha Dixon
Complaining quotes by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
#148. Contentment and happiness! Do everything happily. Walk,

Complaining quotes by Joe Montana
#149. Don't complain about not getting a chance and then be unprepared when you finally do. #Quote by Joe Montana
Complaining quotes by William Osler
#150. Things cannot always go your way. Learn to accept in silence the minor aggravations, cultivate the gift of taciturnity and consume your own smoke with an extra draught of hard work, so that those about you may not be annoyed with the dust and soot of your complaints. #Quote by William Osler
Complaining quotes by Max Frisch
#151. Being alone is the only possible condition for me, since I don't want to make a woman unhappy, and women have a tendency to become unhappy. Being alone isn't always fun, you can't always be in form. Moreover, I have learned from experience that once you are not in form women don't remain in form either; as soon as they are bored they start complaining you've no feeling. #Quote by Max Frisch
Complaining quotes by Bradford Cox
#152. When I got hit by the car, I became depressed. As a result, I've been on antidepressants and I feel like I have no sexuality left. People complain about that side effect, but I love it. I feel outside of society. #Quote by Bradford Cox
Complaining quotes by Fred Melamed
#153. I don't really know of the Jewish tradition of comedy, only the Jewish tradition of not keeping your mouth shut. Complaining about all that is hard, unfair or ridiculous in life-having strong feelings, and not being able to suppress them. That, to me, is Jewish. #Quote by Fred Melamed
Complaining quotes by H.G.Wells
#154. And all over the countryside, he knew, on every crest and hill, where once the hedges had interlaced, and cottages, churches, inns, and farmhouses had nestled among their trees, wind wheels similar to those he saw and bearing like vast advertisements, gaunt and distinctive symbols of the new age, cast their whirling shadows and stored incessantly the energy that flowed away incessantly through all the arteries of the city ... The great circular shapes of complaining wind-wheels blotted out the heavens ... #Quote by H.G.Wells
Complaining quotes by Ludacris
#155. Keep on complaining about slavery and that was over 40 to 50 years ago. You know, black folks need to move on. #Quote by Ludacris
Complaining quotes by Michael Pitt

Complaining quotes by William Morris
#157. Love is enough: though the world be a-waning, And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining. #Quote by William Morris
Complaining quotes by Oswald Chambers
#158. The goal of faithfulness is not that we will do work for God, but that He will be free to do His work through us. God calls us to His service and places tremendous responsibilities on us. He expects no complaining on our part and offers no explanation on His part. God wants to use us as He used His own Son. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Complaining quotes by Abraham Pais
#159. There is not a soul on Earth who can read the deluge of physics publications in its entirety. As a result, it is sad but true that physics has irretrievably fallen apart from a cohesive to a fragmented discipline ... It was not that long ago that people were complaining about two cultures. If we only had it that good. today. #Quote by Abraham Pais
Complaining quotes by Wallis Simpson

Complaining quotes by Jon Gordon
#162. If you are complaining you can't be thinking about or creating what you do want. #Quote by Jon Gordon
Complaining quotes by Daisaku Ikeda
#163. Sometimes we complain without thinking much of it, but the frightening thing about complaining is that every time we do, a cloud descends over our heart, and our hope, appreciation and joy gradually wane. #Quote by Daisaku Ikeda
Complaining quotes by John Von Neumann
#164. It is just as foolish to complain that people are selfish and treacherous as it is to complain that the magnetic field does not increase unless the electric field has a curl. Both are laws of nature. #Quote by John Von Neumann
Complaining quotes by Elbert Hubbard
#165. This bad habit of fault-finding, criticizing and complaining is a tool that grows keener by constant use, and there is grave danger that he who at first is only a moderate kicker may develop into a chronic knocker, and the knife he has sharpened will sever his head. Hooker #Quote by Elbert Hubbard
Complaining quotes by Ida Lokas
#166. He's always complaining about the fucking recession and how the government is working against people like him. He calls himself working class, which I think is a bit ironic since he doesn't work. #Quote by Ida Lokas
Complaining quotes by Hugh Ross
#167. Astronomers who do not draw theistic or deistic conclusions are becoming rare, and even the few dissenters hint that the tide is against them. Geoffrey Burbidge, of the University of California at San Diego, complains that his fellow astronomers are rushing off to join 'the First Church of Christ of the Big Bang.' #Quote by Hugh Ross
Complaining quotes by Ina May Gaskin
#168. I dreaded having a boring life when I grew up. And I certainly can't complain about being bored. #Quote by Ina May Gaskin
Complaining quotes by Ernest Renan
#169. When people complain of life, it is almost always because they have asked impossible things of it. #Quote by Ernest Renan
Complaining quotes by Jennifer Weiner
#170. But I'll tell you a secret. You know what boys like? A woman who's happy with herself. Who's not making herself miserable with the Jane Fonda videotapes and complaining all the time about whether this part or that one's too big. And you know what else they like? She leaned in close, whispering into her granddaughter's ear. Good food. #Quote by Jennifer Weiner
Complaining quotes by Jane Austen
#171. Nobody can tell what I suffer! But it is always so. Those who do not complain are never pitied. #Quote by Jane Austen
Complaining quotes by Amity Gaige
#172. Let's admit it; the only use for complaining is to make people laugh. #Quote by Amity Gaige
Complaining quotes by Christopher Dawson
#173. You can give men food and leisure and amusements and good conditions of work, and still they will remain unsatisfied. You can deny them all these things, and they will not complain so long as they feel that they have something to die for. #Quote by Christopher Dawson
Complaining quotes by Emily Lazar
#174. People always complain about The Grammys because they're not a pop contest, but they're not supposed to be a pop contest. They're about excellence. #Quote by Emily Lazar
Complaining quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#175. We read a good novel not in order to know more people, but in order to know fewer. Instead of the humming swarm of human beings, relatives, customers, servants, postmen, afternoon callers, tradesmen, strangers who tell us the time, strangers who remark on the weather, beggars, waiters, and telegraph-boys--instead of this bewildering human swarm which passes us every day, fiction asks us to follow one figure (say the postman) consistently through his ecstasies and agonies. That is what makes one impatient with that type of pessimistic rebel who is always complaining of the narrowness of his life and demanding a larger sphere. Life is too large for us as it is: we have all too many things to attend to. All true romance is an attempt to simplify it, to cut it down to plainer and more pictorial proportions. What dullness there is in our life arises mostly from its rapidity; people pass us too quickly to show us their interesting side. By the end of the week we have talked to a hundred bores; whereas, if we had stuck to one of them, we might have found ourselves talking to a new friend, or a humorist, or a murderer, or a man who had seen a ghost. #Quote by G.K.
