It is worse to apprehend than to suffer.
      - Jean de la Bruyere

The events we most desire do not happen; or, if they do, it is neither in the time nor in the circumstances when they would have given us extreme pleasure.
      - Jean de la Bruyere

Anticipate the difficult by managing the easy.
      - Lao-Tzu (Lao-Tsze or Laosi)("The Venerable Philosopher")

A man's desires always disappoint him; for though he meets with something that gives him satisfaction, yet it never thoroughly answers his expectation.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

It has been well said that no man ever sank under the burden of the day. It is when to-morrow's burden is added to the burden of to-day that the weight is more than a man can bear.
      - George MacDonald

The pilot who is always dreading a rock or a tempest must not complain if he remain a poor fisherman. We must at times trust, something to fortune, for fortune has often some share in what happens.
      - Metastasio (pseudonym of Antonio Domenico Bonaventura Trapassi Pietro)

Far off his coming alone.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. VI, l. 768)

There are many things that are thorns to our hopes until we have attained them, and envenomed arrows to our hearts when we have.
      - Marquis de Mirabeau, Victor de Riquetti

He who foresees calamities suffers them twice over.
      - Bishop Beilby Porteus

A cathedral, a wave of a storm, a dancer's leap, never turn out to be as high as we had hoped.
      - Marcel Proust

Things temporal are sweeter in the expectation, things eternal are sweeter in the fruition; the first shames thy hope, the second crowns it; it is a vain journey, whose end affords less pleasure than the way.
      - Francis Quarles

Suffering itself does less afflict the senses than the apprehension of suffering.
      - Quintilian (Marcus Fabius Quintilianus)

Anticipation and Hope are born twins.
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

I know that we often tremble at an empty terror; yet the false fancy brings a real misery.
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller

All things that are, are with more spirit chased than enjoyed.
      - William Shakespeare

In all worldly things that a man pursues with the greatest eagerness and intention of mind imaginable, he finds not half the pleasure in the actual possession of them, as he proposed to himself in the expectation.
      - Bishop Robert South

It is expectation makes a blessing dear; heaven were not heaven if we knew what it were.
      - Sir John Suckling

We expect everything, and are prepared for nothing.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

To despond is to lie ungrateful beforehand. Be not looking for evil. Often thou drainest the gall of fear while evil is passing by thy dwelling.
      - Martin Farquhar Tupper
