A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on anxiety, concern, day, labor, and mind

The true husbandman will cease from anxiety, as the squirrels manifest no concern whether the woods will bear chestnuts this year or not, and finish his labor with every day, relinquishing all claim to the produce of his fields, and sacrificing in his mind not only his first but last fruits also.

Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

A Quote by Grenville Kleiser on anxiety, body, business, contentment, depression, direction, friendship, good, humor, mind, and serenity

Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment.

What some call health, if purchased by perpetual anxiety about diet, isn't much better than tedious disease.

A Quote by Felix Salten on anticipation, anxiety, curiosity, effort, giving, happiness, love, mind, motherhood, questions, satisfaction, silence, suspicion, time, and understanding

He loved to ask his mother questions. It was the pleasantest thing for him to ask a question and then to hear what answer his mother would give. Bambi was never surprised that question after question should come into his mind continually and without effort. He found it perfectly natural, and it delighted him very much. It was very delightful too, to wait expectantly till the answer came. If it turned out the way he wanted, he was satisfied. Sometimes, of course, he did not understand, but that was pleasant also because he was kept busy picturing what he had not understood, in his own way. Sometimes he felt very sure that his mother was not giving him a complete answer, was intentionally not telling him all she knew. And, at first, that was very pleasant, too. For then there would remain in him such a lively curiosity, such suspicion, mysteriously and joyously flashing through him, such anticipation, that he would become anxious and happy at the same time, and grow silent.

A Quote by Elizabeth Garrett Anderson on anxiety, death, duty, home, life, motherhood, pain, and relatives

[My mother] speaks of my step being a source of life-long pain to her, that it is a living death, etc. By the same post I had several letters from anxious relatives, telling me that it was my duty to come home and thus ease my mother's anxiety.

A Quote by Eli Stanley Jones on anxiety, confidence, doubt, faith, fear, life, and worry

I see that I am inwardly fashioned for faith and not for fear. Fear is not my native land; faith is. I am so made that worry and anxiety are sand in the machinery of life; faith is oil. I live better by faith and confidence than by fear and doubt and anxiety. In anxiety and worry my being is gasping for breath - these are not my native air. But in faith and confidence I breath freely - these are my native air.

Eli Stanley Jones (1884 - ?)

A Quote by Edith Armstrong on anxiety, doubt, fear, harmony, health, love, mind, and peace

I keep the telephone of my mind open to peace, harmony, health, love and abundance. Then, whenever doubt, anxiety or fear try to call me, they keep getting a busy signal - and they'll soon forget my number.
