Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.
Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

Christ told his disciples not to be anxious about tomorrow, but he never said not to consider tomorrow. Intelligent problem solving demands careful consideration of the future effects of present solutions.
The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety.
Act the way that you want to feel.
Courage has to do with controlling fear and it seems to me that focus has a way of overcoming anxiety.
You don't have to control your thoughts; you just have to stop letting them control you.
