Worry

When I look back on all the worries I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which never happened.

Winston Churchill (1874-1965) British politician.

Do you remember the things you were worrying about a year ago? How did they work out? Didn't you waste a lot of fruitless energy on account of most of them? Didn't most of them turn out all right after all?

Dale Carnegie (1888-1955) American writer.

Do not worry; eat three square meals a day; say your prayers; be courteous to your creditors; keep your digestion good; exercise; go slow and easy. Maybe there are other things your special case requires to make you happy, but my friend, these I reckon will give you a good lift. -

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) Politician. President of the United States.

Happy is the man who has broken the chains which hurt the mind, and has given up worrying once and for all.

Ovid (BC 43-AD 18) Roman poet.

Present fears are less than horrible imaginings.

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) British poet and playwright.

When we have nothing to worry about we are not doing much, and not doing much may supply us with plenty of future worries.

Chinese proverb

There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever.

Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) Preeminent leader of Indian nationalism.

The sovereign cure for worry is prayer.

William James (1842-1910) American philosopher and psychologist.

Little minds have little worries, big minds have no time for worries.

If you believe that feeling bad or worrying long enough will change a past or future event, then you are residing on another planet with a different reality system.
