One's first step in wisdom is to question everything - and one's last is to come to terms with everything.

Free of worry

You’ll never run out of things to worry about. However, you can walk away, whenever you choose, from the need to worry.

To stop worrying, you don’t have to stop caring. You just have to make sure your caring doesn’t immobilize you.

When you feel worry coming on, ask yourself this. What step can you take to replace useless worry with useful action?

Life is full of potential pitfalls. But worry is never an effective response to that situation.

Rather than worry, what you can do is learn, prepare, strengthen. Work to position yourself where you can successfully deal with whatever challenges arise.

Focus your care, your concerns, your energy into action. Choose to live free of worry and full of achievement.

— Ralph Marston
