How do you combat startup stress when it threatens to overwhelm you?

We’ve written before about ways that can help, including getting to the root of stress, getting involved in your startup community, and disconnecting.

But sometimes, you don’t have time. You might just have two minutes between meetings, not enough to get comfortable and relax your breathing. Health care company Gompels created the Startup Stress Relief Generator, a site whose sole purpose is to feed you inspirational and stress-reducing quotes.

Here’s a sampling:
