Quotes of the Day for 25 April 2004 – Stress

As you know, sometimes the quotes are driven by the calendar, and other times by requests. When a string of nice easy themes pop up from the calendar, the requests pile up a bit, which leads to stress when I finally notice. Today I note that they are building up, including one request for quotes on Stress itself.
