  1. They are all very good, of course, but I especially love “Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength.” – Leo Buscaglia. I try hard to keep this in mind when I feel worry and panic start bubbling up. It doesn’t actually resolve anything, just adds to the misery. Thanks for these beautiful reminders. I’m a quote junky, lol.
