A Quote by Christopher Columbus on complaints, good, hope, and people

Here the people could stand it no longer and complained of the long voyage; but the Admiral cheered them as best he could, holding out good hope of the advantages they would have. He added that it was useless to complain, he had come [to go] to the Indies, and so had to continue it until he found them, with the help of Our Lord.

Christopher Columbus (1451 - 1506)
