Worry never robs…

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, but only saps today of its strength.

Archibald Joseph Cronin was a Scottish novelist, dramatist, and non-fiction writer who was one of the most renowned storytellers of the twentieth century. His best-known works are The Citadel and The Keys of the Kingdom, both of which were made into Oscar-nominated films. He also created the Dr. Finlay character, the hero of a series of stories that served as the basis for the long-running BBC television and radio series entitled Dr. Finlay’s Casebook.

  1. ‘July 19, 1896: Scottish writer A.J. Cronin was a practicing doctor when he published his first novel, Hatter’s Castle. His later work, The Stars Look Down, was an inspiration for the film Billy Elliot. He was born 117 years ago today.’

  2. Love it! I remember reading a book by Kirk Douglas, “Last Tango in Brooklyn” in which he said (paraphrase) “if you have one foot in yesterday and another in tomorrow, you’re pissing on today.” Hope that’s not too crude–it sure made the point for me back when I had no clue what “now” was, BOL.

  3. A great writer but I have never read his work. I need to do that but have no time to indulge myself to read more that a few things.

  4. What an inspiring quote;)

    • Here’s another, Kimberly:
      β€œLife is no straight and easy corridor along which we travel free and unhampered, but a maze of passages, through which we must seek our way, lost and confused, now and again checked in a blind alley.
      But always, if we have faith, a door will open for us, not perhaps one that we ourselves would ever have thought of, but one that will ultimately prove good for us”
      ― A.J. Cronin

  5. I have no energy, but it has nothing to do with worry. Heat is slowing me down. Good quote.

  6. Lovely Quot ❀
