I have always had a very extreme anxiety thing…It really began when I was a child. I was locked up for long periods of time and didn’t know when anybody was going to come and let me out. It created a tremendous sense of anxiety and I’ve never gotten rid of it.
I know what it feels like to be hunted.
Never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you.
We have a lot of anxieties, and one cancels out another very often.
Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad. (Proverbs 12:25)
God never built a Christian strong enough to carry today’s duties and tomorrow’s anxieties piled on the top of them.
But Jesus, when you don’t have any money, the problem is food. When you have money, it’s sex. When you have both it’s health, you worry about getting rupture or something. If everything is simply jake then you’re frightened of death.
Anxiety is the rust of life, destroying its brightness and weakening its power. A childlike and abiding trust in Providence is its best preventive and remedy.
Anxiety is the essential condition of intellectual and artistic creation.
Anybody who feels at ease in the world today is a fool.
