Worry has been described as a spasm of the emotions, a catalyst for creating a depressed condition within a human being. Banish worry and you will permit the positive emotions of joy and happiness to rise to the surface. Worry is a condition in which the mind spasmodically clutches an idea and won’t let it go. That is the reason you are never successful in telling people to quit worrying. They can’t quit worrying. Their minds are in an emotional spasm. They are holding onto some obsessive idea and can’t let it go. The only way to break the spasm is to insinuate another idea into this spasmodic grip, until the mind lets go of the bad idea and seizes the good idea. Since worry is an irrational thought, you must take worry apart, lay it out, dissect it, cut it up, and look at it piece by piece. There is so much illusionary vapour to worry that, when it is dispelled, the reality that is left will prove to be quite small and you can handle it. - Norman Vincent Peale

Worry is a misuse of imagination. - Dan Zadra

Worry is a peculiar thing. It is like a dust storm on a hot day. You can become confused and lose your way.

You will find that your worry has lost its power. - Norman Vincent Peale
