Don't Sweat the Small Stuff

        It looks like "Don't sweat the small stuff" may have been originated by cardiologist Dr. Robert Eliot.  ("Don't sweat . . .," of course, is older.)  From the 7/31/83 Omaha World-Herald:

        >>And recently Time Magazine devoted its cover story to the subject
of stress. It starts with words of wisdom from Dr. Robert Eliot,
University of Nebraska Medical Center cardiologist and expert on
coping with stress: ""Rule No. l is don't sweat the small stuff; Rule
No. 2 is, it's all small stuff. And if you can't fight and you can't
flee, flow."<<
