Trouble and perplexity drive me to prayer and prayer drives away perplexity and trouble.
Patience is the best remedy for every trouble.
Too many people grow up. That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget. They don't remember what it's like to be 12 years old. They patronize, they treat children as inferiors. Well I won't do that.

Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. . . . It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.
Over the last decade or so 'wars' have been proclaimed, in turn, on teen pregnancy, dropping out, drugs, and most recently violence. The trouble with such campaigns, though, is that they come too late, after the targeted problem has reached epidemic proportions and taken firm root in the lives of the young. They are crisis intervention, the equivalent of solving a problem by sending an ambulance to the rescue rather than giving an inoculation that would ward off the disease in the first place. Instead of more such 'wars,' what we need is to follow the logic of prevention, offering our children the skills for facing life that will increase their chances of avoiding any and all of these fates
When one has too great a dread of what is impending, one feels some relief when the trouble has come
Worry is interest paid on trouble before it is due.
Worry is the interest paid by those who borrow trouble.
A worried man could borrow a lot of trouble with practically no collateral.

All the problems of the world could be settled if people were only willing to think. The trouble is that people very often resort to all sorts of devices in order not to think, because thinking is such hard work.
Man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.
Therefore, do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day
It is not failure of others to appreciate your abilities that should trouble you, but rather your failure to appreciate theirs.
Wise are they who have learned these truths: Trouble is temporary. Time is tonic. Tribulation is a test tube.
My method is to take the utmost trouble to find the right thing to say, and then to say it with the utmost levity.
If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.
When a friend is in trouble, don't annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.
Friends show their love in times of trouble.
