Funny, Inspiring, and Just Plain GOOD Quotes About Stress

By September 13, 2012

Follow me on:

Sometimes, when faced with a disappointment, I may remember the words of Robert Louis Stevenson, "Life is not a matter of having good cards, but of playing a poor hand well." When I'm having a bad day, I might recall, with a smile, Jennifer Yane's quote, "I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once." If I'm needing a break and feeling guilty about it, I often think of the wise words of Ferris Buller, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look once in awhile, you could miss it." And when I'm facing a crisis that really tests my endurance and emotional resilience, I invariably remember the famous quote from Nietzsche, "That which does not kill us makes us stronger."

Sometimes the right words of wisdom can help you relieve stress by providing a new perspective, reminding you of your inner resources, or even just making you smile or laugh. And, rather than waiting until you need just the right words of wisdom, it's a good idea to have several in mind already, to be ready when you're faced with the situation for which they are the perfect antidote to stress.

The following collections of stress quotes can help you in a variety of stressful situations. These collections bring the bonus of their quotes having a brief explanation on how they can be used for stress relief, and come with links to additional related stress relief resources.
