Morning Musing Over Coffee - Complain Little and Work Hard

credit: Michelle Meiklejohn

If you have time to whine and complain about something then you have time to do something about it.
~ Anthony J. D'Angelo

Learn to accept in silence the minor aggravations, cultivate the gift of taciturnity, and consume your own smoke with an extra draft of hard work, so that those about you may not be annoyed with the dust and soot of your complaints.
~ William Osler

Why is it that we so often think it is easier to waste time and energy complaining and feeling frustrated about something that it is to simple roll up our sleeves and work to fix the problem? Life would be so much simpler and pleasant for all of us if we would learn to complain little and work hard.


  1. Another good one...keep them coming.

  2. Love this! I especially love the last one!
