Generally we obtain very surely and very speedily what we are not too anxious to obtain.-Rousseau.
Anxiety is the poison of human life. It is the parent of many sins, and of more miseries. In a world where everything is doubtful, where you may be disappointed, and be blessed in disappointment, wnat means this restless stir and commotion of mind ? Can your solicitude alter the cause or unravel the intricacy of human events ! —Blair.
Better to be despised for too anxious apprehensions than ruined by too contidcnt a security.—Burke.
