Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do, but it gets you nowhere. ~ Glenn Turner
Worrying in itself does not make the future better.
Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy. ~ Leo Buscaglia
Worrying stops you from doing things.
You can’t wring your hands and roll up your sleeves at the same time. ~ Pat Schroeder
Worrying can cause physical problems.
Heavy thoughts bring on physical maladies; when the soul is oppressed so is the body. ~ Martin Luther
Worrying is often about things that will never happen.
Most things I worry about never happen anyway. Tom Petty
Worrying about something is like paying interest on a debt you don’t even know if you owe. Mark Twain
Since worrying does not get you anywhere, do something about it instead. Take one worry at a time, either solve it or drop it. It is a waste of time and energy to let worries continue to spin.
“Worry a little every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything.”
