Worry never

Saw this on Facebook, posted by an online friend, attributed to Eleanor H. Porter:

Worry never climbed a hill.
Worry never paid a bill.
Worry never dried a tear.
Worry never calmed a fear.
Worry never darned a heel.
Worry never cooked a meal.
Worry never led a horse to water.
Worry never done a thing you’d think it oughta.
We can Phil. 4:1-9

And my little discovery here: Another don’t-worry poem in a children’s book by David Cory, words of the Big Brown Bear, who apparently needs some winter fat, to Little Jack Rabbit:

Worry never makes you fat,
Instead, it makes you lean.
Never worry for a minute,—
Worry has the devil in it,—
Keep your mind serene.

Other times those, and methinks, in so many ways, better. But we make our own times, our own worlds, in great part, by our spirit of mind.
