This is the precept by which I have lived: Prepare for the worst; expect the best; and take what comes.
Robert E. Speer
Fools worry; the wise prepare.
Duane Alan Hahn
It ain't no use putting up your umbrella till it rains.
Alice Caldwell Rice
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.
Let our advance worrying become advance thinking and planning.
Worry is just about the worst form of mental activity there is—next to hate, which is deeply self destructive. Worry is pointless. It is wasted mental energy. It also creates bio-chemical reactions which harm the body, producing everything from indigestion to coronary arrest, and a multitude of things in between.
Health will improve almost at once when worrying ends.
Worry is the activity of a mind which does not understand its connection with Me.
Hatred is the most severely damaging mental condition. It poisons the body, and its effects are virtually irreversible.
Fear is the opposite of everything you are, and so has an effect of opposition to your mental and physical health. Fear is worry magnified.
Worry, hate, fear—together with their offshoots: anxiety, bitterness, impatience, avarice, unkindness, judgmentalness, and condemnation—all attack the body at the cellular level. It is impossible to have a healthy body under these conditions.
Similarly—although to a somewhat lesser degree—conceit, self-indulgence, and greed lead to physical illness, or lack of well-being.
God from Conversations with God (Book 1) through Neale Donald Walsch
Worry affects the circulation, the heart, the glands, the whole nervous system. I have never known a man who died from over work, but many who died from doubt.
Charles Horace Mayo
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.
The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
No man ever sank under the burden of the day. It is when tomorrow's burden is added to the burden of today, that the weight is more than a man can bear.
Worry is a useless mulling over of things we cannot change.
We consume our tomorrows fretting about our yesterdays.
Happy is the man who has broken the chains which hurt the mind, and has given up worrying once and for all.
Worry is a cycle of inefficient thoughts whirling around a center of fear.
Corrie Ten Boom
As a rule, men worry more about what they can't see than about what they can.
People get so in the habit of worry that if you save them from drowning and put them on a bank to dry in the sun with hot chocolate and muffins they wonder whether they are catching cold.
John Jay Chapman
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.
