Pills for Pessimists by J. W. Wigelsworth
The devil worry spoils more digestions than whiskey.
Fussing, fuming, fearing, and apprehending what?
They are all pure and simple evidences of ignorance or bodily distortion.
Your body is influenced by your mind.
Your mind is influenced by your body.
An untrained mind worries.
A sick body stimulates worry.
A worrier’s thoughts run riot.
They roll in, one crowding the other out of order and arrangement.
It’s uncontrolled thinking.
Worriers are like ships on the angry ocean, tossed here and there without any self-control.
The worrier is either physically disorganized, or he proves his lack of confidence in God by worrying.
Worry is cowardice if your body is all right.
And besides, ‘‘I am an old man and have worried much over things that never happened.’’
Fear freezes us up and puts our functions into cold storage.
You stop when you fear.
You chill your vitals and stand like a frozen being.
What is fear?
Just, ‘‘I’m afraid’’: You must face the music of life.
Your future is not today, but today makes your future.
Fretting and fearing make a fitting future for themselves.
If you want to be sick—want to devitalize and destroy your body—then fear and worry about things.
It’s a sure method of making a diseased future.
Let this soak in.
Hate is ungodly and ruins our bodies and minds.
Beauty is ‘‘skin deep,’’ they say.
‘‘Skin deep’’ beauty becomes ‘‘skin deep,’’ body full, disposition ruining ugliness under the magic wand of hate.
Hate is a low-down, degrading, uncivilized, detestable thing.
The woman in the gutter, in the lowest walks of life—is a queen beside the hater.
You can’t be good.
You can’t be reasonable.
You can’t think.
You can’t eat.
Hate and your body will show its mark—so will your future.
You can’t do good.
You can’t be sane—and be jealous.
You should consider your mind sacred.
If you desecrate it with jealousy, you are ugly, unstable mentally, and an undesirable member of society.
These four—Worry, Fear, Hate, and Jealousy—are the ravages of good health.
Your body and mind must both be right to be healthy.
An unhealthy body makes an unhealthy mind.
An unhealthy mind makes an unhealthy body.
A real doctor must take these things into consideration.
Good thoughts lead to health, wealth, and happiness.
Bad thoughts lead to sickness, poverty, and hell.
Look into the mirror and smile at yourself.
I hope you enjoyed!
