Henry Ward Beecher
It’s not the work which kills people, it’s the worry. It’s not the revolution that destroys machinery it’s the friction.
I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief…. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.
The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work.
My grandfather was a juggler in a Russian circus. He was able to worry about six things at once.
I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.
What worries you, masters you.
Pray, and let God worry.
It is not the cares of today, but the cares of tomorrow, that weigh a man down. For the needs of today we have corresponding strength given. For the morrow we are told to trust. It is not ours yet. It is when tomorrow’s burden is added to the burden of today that the weight is more than a man can bear.
You probably wouldn’t worry about what people think of you if you could know how seldom they do.
Comte De Rivarol
The only thing wealth does for some people is to make them worry about losing it.
Corrie Ten Boom
Worry is a cycle of inefficient thoughts whirling around a center of fear.
Corrie Ten Boom
Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.
I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.
Worry is belief gone wrong. Because you don’t believe that God will get it right.

Most Christians are being crucified on a cross between two thieves: Yesterday’s regret and tomorrow’s worries.
