A Proverb for Our Times

There's an old Greek proverb that says, "The bow that is always bent will soon break." What that proverb seems to be implying is that the bow that is always under pressure, that never has an opportunity to release or let go, will soon break into a million pieces.

If there is ever a proverb that fits the society in which we live, this is it.
