Worry doesn't help tomorrow's troubles, but it does ruin today's happiness!
There is no use worrying about things over which you have no control, and if you have control, you can do something about them instead of worrying.
Stanley C. Allyn
If you can't sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It's the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep.
If you want to test your memory, try to recall what you were worrying about one year ago today.
E. Joseph Cossman
Worry not about the possible troubles of the future; for if they come, you are but anticipating and adding to their weight; and if they do not come, your worry is useless; and in either case it is weak and in vain, and a distrust of God's providence.
Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.
Arthur Somers Roche
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. -
Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey!
Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.
Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do, but it gets you nowhere.
"A moment worried is a moment wasted."
Michelle Ghislaine Ambler
"Blessed is the person who is too busy to worry in the daytime, and too sleepy to worry at night."
"Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow."
"A day of worry is more exhausting than a day of work."
"Today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday."
"What worries you masters you."
Haddon W. Robinson
"We consume our tomorrows fretting about our yesterdays."
When you suffer an attack of nerves you're being attacked by the nervous system. What chance has a man got against a system?
It is not work that kills men; it is worry. Work is healthy; you can hardly put more upon a man than he can bear. Worry is the rust upon the blade. It is not the revolution which destroys the machinery but the friction. Fear secretes acids; but love and trust are sweet juices
Henry Ward Beecher
Don't fight with the pillow, but lay down your head and kick every worriment out of the bed.
Edmund Vance Cooke
If there be no remedy, why worry?
It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there's nothing you can do about them, and why worry about things you do control? The activity of worrying keeps you immobilized.
Dr. Wayne Dyer
Worries go down better with soup than without.
The man of wisdom is never of two minds; the man of benevolence never worries; the man of courage is never afraid.
Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia.
Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen.
One can either worry about time wasted, or stop wasting more time worrying about it.
