Yes, languages have their own personality.

German can be a surprisingly optimistic language at times.  Yesterday, I picked up a pair of left-behind goggles at the swimming pool and brought them to the office, where I tried to explain that they had been lost.  “Ah!” the woman there replied, “die sind Fundsache.”  That is to say, in Germany left-behind items aren’t “lost” or even “lost and found” but simply “found things.”
