Man invented language to satisfy his deep need to complain.

If I complain about a traffic jam, I have no one to blame but myself.

With patient and firm determination, I am going to press on for jobs. I'm going to press on for equality. I'm going to press on for the sake of our children.

C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
