Trouble Quotes
Here’s another top 10 list…this time, on the topic of trouble. I could easily add about 100 more!

1) If you would not have affliction visit you twice, listen at once to what it teaches. -James Burgh

2) Never complain about your troubles; they are responsible for more than half of your income. -Robert R. Updegraff

3) I have had a long, long life full of troubles, but there is one curious fact about them—nine-tenths of them never happened. -Andrew Carnegie

4) Temper is what gets most of us into trouble.  Pride is what keeps us there. -Mark Twain

5) Most troubles arise from loafing when we should be working or talking when we should be listening. -Arnold Glasow

6) We are always in the forge, or on the anvil; by trials God is shaping us for higher things. -Henry Ward Beecher

7)  Trouble will come soon enough, and when he does come receive him as pleasantly as possible. Like the tax collector, he is a disagreeable chap to have in one’s house, but the more amiably you greet him the sooner he will go away. -Artemus Ward

8. The true way of softening one’s troubles is to solace those of others. -Mad. de Maintenon

9) Trouble is the next best thing to enjoyment; there is no fate in the world so horrible as to have no share in either its joys or sorrows. -Longfellow

10) The cares of today are seldom those of tomorrow, and when we lie down at night we may safely say to most of our troubles, “Ye have done your worst, and we shall see you no more.” -William Cowper

    I like Twain’s quote when he says that it is temper which gets us into trouble.

    I also like the quote that says to greet trouble amiably.
