-- Here I will record quotes which I have found to be very useful in my adventure so far --

From the book "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living" by Dale Carnegie

"Shut the iron doors on the past and the future. Live in day-tight compartments"

"Today's bread is the only kind of bread you can possibly eat."

"Be content to live the only time we can possibly live: from now until bedtime."

"True peace of mind comes from accepting the worst. Psychologically, I think, it means a release of energy."

"...One of the worst features about worrying is that it destroys our ability to concentrate. When we worry, our minds jump here and there and everywhere, and we lose all power of decision. However, when we force ourselves to face the worst and accept it mentally, we then eliminate all these vague imaginings and put ourselves in a position in which we are able to concentrate on our problem."

"The vast majority of patients who come to physicians could cure themselves if they only got rid of their fears and worries."

"Those who do not know how to fight worry die young."

"Fear causes worry. Worry makes you tense and nervous and affects the nerves of your stomach and actually changes the gastric juices of your stomach from normal to abnormal and often leads to stomach ulcers."

"What price success! Even if a man owned the whole world, he could sleep only in one bed at a time and eat only three meals a day."

"I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavour...if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavours to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."

"Face the facts: quit worrying; then do something about it!"
