Worry - Chinese Proverb

"That the birds of worry and care fly over your head, this you cannot change, but that they build nests in your hair, this you can prevent."

  1. Hah! I am constantly beating bird nests out of my hair!!

    Bible speaks of birds and worry, too. In Matthew:

    25 Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
