If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded.
      - Maya Angelou

Care seeks out wrinkled brows and hollow eyes, and builds himself caves to abide in them.
      - Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher

I met a brother who, describing a friend of his, said he was like a man who had dropped a bottle and broken it; and put all the pieces in his bosom, where they were cutting him perpetually.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Men do not avail themselves of the riches of God's grace. They love to nurse their cares, and seem as uneasy without some fret as an old friar would be without his hair girdle. They are commanded to cast their cares upon the Lord, but even when they attempt it, they do not fail to catch them up again, and think it meritorious to walk burdened.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

For every man shall bear his own burden.
      - Bible, Galatians (ch. VI, v. 5)

Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
      - Bible, James (ch. I, v. 19-20)

Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
      - Bible, Matthew (ch. XX, v. 12)

Care, admitted as guest, quickly turns to be master.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

But human bodies are sic fools,
  For a' their colleges and schools,
    That when use real ills perplex them,
      They make enow themselves to vex them.
      - Robert Burns

But can the noble mind for ever brood,
  The willing victim of a weary mood,
    On heartless cares that squander life away,
      And cloud young Genius bright'ning into day?
      - Thomas Campbell

How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.
      - Coco Chanel

Quick is the succession of human events; the cares of to-day are seldom the cares of to-morrow; and when we lie down at night, we may safely say to most of our troubles, "Ye have done your worst; and we shall meet no more."
      - William Cowper

O mortal cares insensate, what small worth,
  In sooth, doth all those syllogisms fill,
    Which makes you stoop your pinions to the earth!
      [It., O insensata cura dei mortali,
        Quanto son defettivi sillogismi
          Quei che ti fanno in basso batter l'ali!]
      - Dante ("Dante Alighieri"), Paradiso
         (XI, 1)

Second-hand cares, like second-hand clothes, come easily off and on.
      - Charles Dickens

All creatures else a time of love possess,
  Man only clogs with care his happiness,
    And while he should enjoy his part of bliss,
      With thoughts of what may be, destroys what is.
      - John Dryden

Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.
      - Albert Einstein

Why art thou troubled and anxious about many things? One thing is needful--to love Him and to sit attentively at His feet.
      - Francois de Salignac Fenelon

For the want of a nail the shoe was lost,
  For the want of a shoe the horse was lost,
    For the want of a horse the rider was lost,
      For the want of a rider the battle was lost,
        For the want of a battle the kingdom was lost--
          And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.
      - Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard's Almanac,
        a version of the quotation

For want of a nail the shoe was lost, for want of a shoe the horse was lost; and for want of a horse the rider was lost; being overtaken and slain by the enemy, all for want of care about a horse-shoe nail.
      - Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard's Almanac,
        a version of the quotation

To carry care to bed is to sleep with a pack on your back.
      - Thomas Chandler Haliburton (used pseudonym Sam Slick)

He that taketh his own cares upon himself loads himself in vain with an uneasy burden. I will cast all my cares on God; He hath bidden me; they cannot burden Him.
      - Joseph Hall

Light burthens, long borne, growe heavie.
  [Light burdens, long borne, grow heavy.]
      - George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum

Still though the headlong cavalier,
  O'er rough and smooth, in wild career,
    Seems racing with the wind;
      His sad companion, ghastly pale,
        And darksome as a widow's veil,
          Care keeps her seat behind.
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus)

Care that is once enter'd into the breast
  Will have the whole possession ere it rest.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Care that is entered once into the breast
  Will have the whole possession ere it rest.
      - Ben Jonson, Tale of a Tub (act I, sc. 4)
