“I’ve always worried a lot and frankly I am good at it.
I worry about introducing people and then going blank when I get to my mother.
I worry about a shortage of ball bearings.
I worry about a snake coming up through the kitchen drain.
I worry about getting in the Guinness world book of records under pregnancy oldest recorded birth.

I worry that one of my children will marry an Eskimo who will set me adrift on an iceberg when I can no longer feed myself.
I worry about scientists discovery someday that lettuce had been fattening all along.”

“Anxiety is the most prevailing quality of our modern culture.”
Alain de Botton:
“A sharp decline in actual deprivation may paradoxically have been accompanied by an ongoing and even escalating sense of fear of deprivation. Modern populations have shown a remarkable capacity to feel that neither why they are nor what they have is quite enough.”
“The greatness of man is so evident that it is even proved by his wretchedness. For who is unhappy at not being a king but a deposed king.”
Queen Elizabeth I:
“My dear friend, you mind my business and I will mind your business.”
