Stress Quotes


These stress quotes show us how others have viewed and responded to stress and its effects in their lives. Stress feels like a tightly coiled spring and affects us all - young and old, rich and poor, male and female. Stress provokes a deeper response to life and usually signposts the changes we need to make.

Some stress quotes are humorous, some ironic and some very wise.
