A Quote by Lao Tzu on service, teachers, truth, words, and worry

The highest truth cannot be put into words. Therefore the greatest teacher has nothing to say. He simply gives himself in service, and never worries.

A Quote by J.D. Salinger on automobiles, god, horses, people, thinking, and worry

Take most people, they are crazy about cars. They worry if they get a little scratch on them, they are always talking about have many miles they get to a gallon, and if they get a brand new car already they start thinking about trading it in for one that is even newer. I do not even like old cars. . . . I'd rather have a horse. A horse is at least human, for God's sake.

A Quote by Jannie Putter on belief, creativity, decisions, doubt, dreams, fear, justice, people, pity, and worry

What a pity that so many people rather believe their doubts And doubt their beliefs. . . Why don't we just decide to have no doubts, And believe your beliefs! Fear and worry is just the mis-use of the creative powers We originally got to dream.

A Quote by James O. Freedman on cinema, company, fear, feeling, good, television, world, and worry

Everywhere we look, the world urges us to turn on the radio or TV, to make a phone call, to see a movie. Many of us fear, worry, that if left alone with our thoughts and feelings, we may discover that we do not make very good company for ourselves.

A Quote by James Keller on danger, god, women, and worry

During a heavy storm at sea a nervous woman passenger on a large liner went to the captain, seeking reassurance. "Captain," she asked tremulously, "are we in great danger?" "Don't worry, madam," he answered, "after all, we in the hands of God." "Oh," she gasped, terror written on her face, "is it as bad as that?"

A Quote by J. Richard Clarke on genius, good, honor, performance, problems, therapy, work, and worry

Work is honorable. It is good therapy for most problems. It is the antidote for worry. It is the equalizer for deficiency of native endowment. Work makes it possible for the average to approach genius. What we may lack in aptitude, we can make up for in performance. . . .

J. Richard Clarke (1927 -)

A Quote by Ivy Lee on advice, day, order, presidency, projects, secrets, and worry

If you want to know the secret to getting the most from your day . . . then simply refer to the advice given to Charles Schwab, the president of US Steel, at the early part of this century: "Write down the most important things you have to do tomorrow. Now, number them in the order of their true importance. The first thing tomorrow morning, start working on an item Number 1, and stay with it until completed. Then take item Number 2 the same way. Then Number 3, and so on. Don't worry if you don't complete everything on the schedule. At least you will have completed the most important projects before getting to the less important ones."

Don't worry about people stealing an idea. If it's original and it's any good, you'll have to ram it down their throats.
