Worry is like a ‘loose cannon’ on the inside of us.

Victor Hugo, author of Les Miserables, wrote a short story called, "93." In the midst of this story a ship at sea is caught in a terrible storm. The boat rocks to and fro, buffeted by the waves, when suddenly the crew hears a terrible crashing sound below deck. They know what it is. A cannon they are carrying has broken loose and is smashing into the ship’s sides. Two brave sailors, at the risk of their lives, manage to go below and fasten it again, for they know that the heavy cannon on the inside of their ship is more dangerous to them than the storm on the outside. So it is with people. Problems within are often much more destructive to us than the problems without.
