Sounds like a scriptural proverb

It was not in her nature, however, to increase her vexations, by dwelling on them. She was confident of having performed her duty, and to fret over unavoidable evils, or augment them by anxiety, was no part of her disposition

(From Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen. This sounds much like several verses from the Bible, for example, "Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.")
