A Quote by Norman Vincent Peale on ability, emotion, failure, faith, gloom, god, peace, power, problems, and worry

Get the heat and emotion out worry, and put cold, ruthless scrutiny onto the problem, and worry loses its power. When we are worried and filled with apprehension, we become panicky and are likely to see only gloom and failure. There isn't any situation so bad that it won't become a lot better when you think rationally - and spiritually - about it. God gives you the ability to think rationally about things by filling you with peace and faith.

Norman Vincent Peale (1898 - 1993)

A Quote by Norman Vincent Peale on cooking, depression, emotion, good, happiness, ideas, joy, mind, obsession, people, reality, reason, success, thought, and worry

Worry has been described as a spasm of the emotions, a catalyst for creating a depressed condition within a human being. Banish worry and you will permit the positive emotions of joy and happiness to rise to the surface. Worry is a condition in which the mind spasmodically clutches an idea and won't let it go. That is the reason you are never successful in telling people to quit worrying. They can't quit worrying. Their minds are in an emotional spasm. They are holding onto some obsessive idea and can't let it go. The only way to break the spasm is to insinuate another idea into this spasmodic grip, until the mind lets go of the bad idea and seizes the good idea. Since worry is an irrational thought, you must take worry apart, lay it out, dissect it, cut it up, and look at it piece by piece. Do this with cook,m collective, rational thought, and there won't be mush left of it. There is so much illusionary vapor to worry that, when it is dispelled, the reality that is left will prove to be quite small and you can handle it.

A Quote by Norman Vincent Peale on anxiety, clarity, confusion, day, friendship, life, losing, power, privacy, time, world, and worry

Worry is a peculiar thing. It is like a dust storm on a hot day. You can become confused and lose your way. I was in Wichita, Kansas, some time ago, when I had to fly to Cincinnati. A friend sent me in a private plane. When we were crossing the Mississippi River, the sky grew hazy. "We can't see where we're going,"I said to the pilot. He replied,"We'll go up above the haze-level." "What's the haze-level," I asked. "Ground heat, dust, and smoke combine to form the haze-level. We'll go up another thousand feet and get above it." We did and emerged into an altogether different world, clear and beautiful. The pilot commented, "Life is something like this, isn't it? Down there they are groping in the haze. Up here, we have clarity and can see our way. Next time you find yourself bogged down in anxiety and worry, say to yourself, "I will not be disturbed by this thing. I will look at it coolly and logically. I will rise above the haze-level." You will find that your worry has lost its power.

A Quote by Norman Vincent Peale on happiness, heart, life, love, mind, and worry

The way to happiness: keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Fill your life with love. Scatter sunshine. Forget self, think of others. Do as you would be done by. Try this for a week and you will be surprised.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on laws, time, and worry

Unproductive worry - like Parkinson's proverbial law - tends to expand to fill the time available.

A Quote by Minot Judson Savage on dignity, eternity, life, needs, preparation, purpose, and worry

If we can say with Seneca, "This life is only a prelude to eternity," then we need not worry so much over the fittings and furnishings of this ante-room; and more than that, it will give dignity and purpose to the fleeting days to know they are linked with the eternal things as prelude and preparation.
