: Has anyone ever heard of this quote "Don't trouble trouble 'til trouble troubles you"? What is the origin of this phrase?

Don't trouble trouble until trouble troubles you. Traditional. From "My Soul Looks Back, 'Less I Forget: A Collection of Quotations by People of Color," Dorothy Winbush Riley, editor, HarperPerennial, HarperCollins Publishers, New York, 1995, Page 414.
