Quotation Bullet

A Frenchman is self-assured because he regards himself personally both in mind and body as irresistibly attractive to men and women. An Englishman is self-assured as being a citizen of the best-organized state in the world and therefore, as an Englishman, always knows what he should do and knows that all he does as an Englishman is undoubtedly correct. An Italian is self-assured because he is excitable and easily forgets himself and other people. A Russian is self-assured just because he knows nothing and does not want to know anything, since he does not believe that anything can be known. The German's self-assurance is worst of all, stronger and more repulsive than any other, because he imagines that he knows the truth -- science -- which he himself has invented but which is for him the absolute truth.
~ Count Leo Tolstoy - [Complacency]

Quotation Bullet

Had we not faults of our own, we should take less pleasure in complaining of others.
~ Francois FTNelon - [Complaints and Complaining]

Quotation Bullet

I cannot help fearing that men may reach a point where they look on every new theory as a danger, every innovation as a toilsome trouble, every social advance as a first step toward revolution, and that they may absolutely refuse to move at all for fear of being carried off their feet. The prospect really does frighten me that they may finally become so engrossed in a cowardly love of immediate pleasures that their interest in their own future and in that of their descendants may vanish, and that they will prefer tamely to follow the course of their destiny rather than make a sudden energetic effort necessary to set things right.
~ Alexis De Tocqueville - [Complacency]

Quotation Bullet

If I were to say, ''God, why me?'' about the bad things, then I should have said, ''God, why me?'' about the good things that happened in my life.
~ Arthur Ashe - [Complaints and Complaining]

Quotation Bullet

In all life one should comfort the afflicted, but verily, also, one should afflict the comfortable, and especially when they are comfortably, contentedly, even happily wrong.
~ John Kenneth Galbraith - [Complacency]

Quotation Bullet

Intelligence is nothing without delight.
~ Paul Claudel - [Complaints and Complaining]

Quotation Bullet

It is a general popular error to suppose the loudest complainers for the public to be the most anxious for its welfare.
~ Edmund Burke - [Complaints and Complaining]
