  • Worry is common to all people at one time or another.  Henry Ward Beecher said, “It is not work that kills men, it is worry. Work is healthy, you can hardly put more upon a man than he can bear. Worry is rust upon the blade. It is not the revolution that destroys the machinery, but the friction.”
