Jonathan Swift, satirist (1667-1745)
before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who can't
you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone
who has nothing to eat.
you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone
who's crying out to GOD for a companion.
before you complain about life - Think of someone who went
too early to heaven.
whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who
walks the same distance with their feet.
you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the
unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your
depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on
your face and think: you're alive and still
