Fear makes the world go round...

...at least, when combined with intelligence.

It’s official the people who worry in this world are the creators. They are the ones who see the problems that need to be fixed before the happy go lucky people do.

This isn't a new revelation, however.

"For in much wisdom is much vexation, and he who increases knowledge increases sorrow."
Ecclesiastes 1:18

I too worry all the time, though I wouldn't consider myself really intelligent.

Well, I'd distinguish between intelligence and wisdom.

There's a difference between worrying / brooding (Grübeln) and contemplating / pondering (Nachdenken), although finding the right words here was kind of difficult. If you worry, you usually reduce the world to those things you are afraid of and lose sight for everything else, hence it is bothersome and great thinkers tend to try to avoid it. People who ponder can still lie awake at night over some scientific / social question, but wont lose their head over it.

Some psychologists say worrying can become like a disease over time and hurt one's mind, thus people should try not to get sucked into that. I am not sure about that statement as I am no psychologist, but I firmly believe being too afraid of something can cause serious damage, and if whole groups are befallen by it, even worse things can happen.


So.. do you really worry, or do you rather ponder about problems? Wink

An intelligent ruler is one who is able to keep his ministers in his service. Rampant people exercises all undue powers and influence at their pleasure and makes arbitrary determinations of right and wrong. If there is not law and tact to control them, they will, as usual, gain influence, administer state affairs at will, and make all decisions on their own authority.
