A Quote by Sherman Finesilver on chance, failure, mind, time, and worry

Keep these concepts in mind: You've failed many times, although you don't remember. You fell down the first time you tried to walk. You almost drowned the first time you tried to swim. . . . R. H. Macy failed 7 times before his store in New York caught on. Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times. Don't worry about failure. My suggestion to each of you: Worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try.

A Quote by Dr. Samuel Johnson on anxiety, future, life, peace, rest, and worry

There is little peace or comfort in life if we are always anxious as to future events. He that worries himself with the dread of possible contingencies will never be at rest.

A Quote by Saint Augustine of Hippo on cowardice, men, nobility, war, world, and worry

To be under pressure is inescapable. Pressure takes place through all the world; war, siege, the worries of state. We all know men who grumble under these pressures and complain. They are cowards. They lack splendour. But there is another sort of man who is under the same pressure but does not complain, for it is the friction which polishes him. It is the pressure which refines and makes him noble

Saint Augustine of Hippo (354 - 430)

A Quote by Richard Phillips Feynman on blindness, dignity, habits, ideas, order, science, work, worry, and writing

We have a habit in writing articles published in scientific journals to make the work as finished as possible, to cover up all the tracks, to not worry about the blind alleys or describe how you had the wrong idea first, and so on. So there isn't any place to publish, in a dignified manner, what you actually did in order to get to do the work.

Richard Feynman (1918 - 1988)
