A Quote by Martin Luther on anxiety, belief, commitment, god, heart, labor, quiet, serenity, sleep, tranquility, and work

He who believes in God is not careful for the morrow, but labors joyfully and with a great heart. "For He giveth His beloved, as in sleep." They must work and watch, yet never be careful or anxious, but commit all to Him, and live in serene tranquility; with a quiet heart, as one who sleeps safely and quietly.

A Quote by Martin L. Gross on anxiety, children, dependence, food, and government

If you're rich, you can buy tax-free municipal bonds and thumb your nose at the IRS. But if you're a working stiff, you can expect only anxiety and the government's hand deep in your pocket.
