But unless we toil and strive and earn all we can in the first half, the second half of our life is liable to bring disappointment, discomfort, distress. The time to put forth effort is when we are most able to do it, namely, in the years of our greatest strength. The law of compensation hasn't ceased to function.

No matter how much time you've wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.
  • Denise Levertov    We must breathe time as fishes breathe water.
  • Diane Dreher    Successful leaders develop effective strategies for maintaining their boundaries. ... Most time bandits don't know any better. And being a time bandit is a matter of context.

We cannot expect another person to honor our needs unless we affirm them ourselves.

  • Eckhart Tolle    People look to time in expectation that it will eventually make them happy, but you cannot find true happiness by looking toward the future.
  • Eckhart Tolle    The whole essence of Zen consists in walking along the razor's edge of Now - to be so utterly, so completely present that no problem, no suffering, nothing that is not who you are in your essence, can survive in you. In the Now, in the absence of time, all your problems dissolve. Suffering needs time; it cannot survive in the Now.
  • Eckhart Tolle    Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed.

  • Edwin Arlington Robinson    Poets and kings are but the clerks of Time, Tiering the same dull webs of discontent, Clipping the same sad alnage of the years.
  • Edwin Muir    There is a road that turning always Cuts off the country of Again. Archers stand there on every side And as it runs time's deer is slain, And lies where it has lain.
  • Elbert Hubbard    If you want work well done, select a busy man - the other kind has no time.
  • Elisabeth Kubler-Ross    There are dreams of love, life, and adventure in all of us. But we are also sadly filled with reasons why we shouldn't try.

  • Ellen Goodman    Saving time, it seems, has a primacy that's too rarely examined.
  • Ellen Goodman    The great myth of our work-intense era is 'quality time.' We believe we can make up for the loss of days or hours, especially with each other, by concentrated minutes. But ultimately there is no way to do one-minute mothering. There is no way to pay attention in a hurry.

  • Ernest Hemingway    There is nothing else than now. There is neither yesterday, certainly, nor is there any tomorrow. How old must you be before you know that? There is only now, and if now is only two days, then two days is your life and everything in it will be in proportion. This is how you live a life in two days. And if you stop complaining and asking for what you never will get, you will have a good life. A good life is not measured by any biblical span.
  • Esther Hicks    Take the time to line up the Energy first, and action becomes inconsequential. If you don't take the time to line up the Energy, if you don't find the feeling place of what you're looking for, not enough action in the world will make any difference.

  • Fernando Pessoa    It's been a long time since I've been me.
  • Fernando Pessoa    Nostalgia! I feel it even for someone who meant nothing to me, out of anxiety for the flight of time and a sickness bred of the mystery of life.

  • Francis Bacon    In every great time there is some one idea at work which is more powerful than any other, and which shapes the events of the time and determines their ultimate issues.
  • Francis Bacon    Time is the author of authors.
  • Francis Chan    God exists outside of time, and since we are within time, there is no way we will ever totally grasp that concept.
  • Francis Ford Coppola    Time is the lens through which dreams are captured.
  • Francois Fenelon    God, who is liberal in all his other gifts, shows us, by the wise economy of His providence, how circumspect we ought to be in the management of our time, for He never gives us two moments together.
  • Francois Fenelon    Time is given us that we may take care for eternity; and eternity will not be too long to regret the loss of our time if we have misspent it.
  • Francois Rabelais    It is my feeling that Time ripens all things; with Time all things are revealed; Time is the father of truth.
  • Francoise Sagan    I think the best way to waste time is to try to save time.
  • Frank Bettger    The whole secret of freedom from anxiety over not having enough time lies not in working more hours, but in the proper planning of the hours.
  • Frank Shorter    I want my time spent running to serve as a reward.
  • Frank Zappa    Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid.
  • Franz Grillparzer    I notice well that one stray step from the habitual path leads irresistibly into a new direction. Life moves forward, it never reverses its course.
  • Franz Kafka    But eternity is not temporality at a standstill. What is oppressive about the concept of the eternal is the justification, incomprehensible to us, that time must undergo in eternity and the logical conclusion of that, the justification of ourselves as we are.
  • Frederic Chopin    Time is the best of critics; and patience the best of teachers.
  • Friedrich Nietzsche    Time, space, and causality are only metaphors of knowledge, with which we explain things to ourselves.
  • Friedrich Nietzsche    When one has a great deal to put into it a day has a hundred pockets.
  • Friedrich Schiller    Like a dart the present glances, Silent stands the past sublime.
  • Friedrich Schiller    Lose not yourself in a far off time, seize the moment that is thine.
  • Friedrich Schiller    Time flies on restless pinions - constant never.
  • Friedrich Schiller    Time is a blooming field: nature is ever teeming with life: and all is seed, and all is fruit.
  • Gabriel Byrne    I would love to go back to any time in European history, especially in Irish history, to the second or third century, prior to the arrival of Christianity when Paganism flourished. I can always go back there in my imagination, of course. It doesn't cost anything, and it's a form of time travel, I suppose.
  • Gabriel Zaid    Confronted with the choice between having time and having things, we’ve chosen to have things. Today it is a luxury to read what Socrates said, not because the books are expensive, but because our time is scarce.
  • Gary Vaynerchuk    We only get to play this game one time, one life.
  • Gautama Buddha    Times of luxury do not last long, but pass away very quickly; nothing in this world can be long enjoyed.
  • Geoffrey Chaucer    Time and tide wait for no man.
  • Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel    Whatever happens, every individual is a child of his time; so philosophy too is its own time apprehended in thoughts. It is just as absurd to fancy that a philosophy can transcend its contemporary world as it is to fancy that an individual can overleap his own age, jump over Rhodes.
  • George Bernard Shaw    Everything happens to everybody sooner or later if there is time enough.
  • George Carlin    Why do 'slow down' and 'slow up' mean the same thing? Why is the third hand on the watch called the second hand?
  • George D. Prentice    Remorseless time! fierce spirit of the glass and scythe,--what power can stay him in his silent course, or melt his iron heart with pity!
  • George D. Prentice    Time knows not the weight of sleep or weariness, and night's deep darkness has no chain to bind his rushing pinion.
  • George Harrison    It's being here now that's important. There's no past and there's no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one.
  • George McGovern    I didn't used to care about living a long time. Not that I wasn't enjoying life, but I never sat around asking how I'd get to be 100, you know. But now I want to live long enough to see every school child in the world getting a good, nutritious lunch every day.
  • George S. Patton    A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
  • George Sand    Time is always wanting to me, and I cannot meet with a single day when I am nut hurried along, driven to by wits'-end by urgent work, business to attent do or some service to render.
  • Gertrude Stein    It takes a lot of time to be a genius, you have to sit around so much doing nothing, really doing nothing.
  • Glenn Frey    People don't run out of dreams - people just run out of time.
  • Gloria Steinem    I think I've wasted some of my time, but used most of it well, and have realized that my life is not separate from other people's lives or from the universe. I think our moments of happiness really come from a feeling of unity.
  • Gloria Swanson    Never say never Never is a long, undependable time, and life is too full of rich possibilities to have restrictions placed upon it.
  • Golda Meir    I must govern the clock, not be governed by it.
  • Gotthold Ephraim Lessing    But how many moments are already past! Ah! who thinks of those that are past?
  • Grace King    The heart and the almanac never agree about time.
  • Groucho Marx    Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.
  • Gunilla Brodde Norris    A candle is a living, flickering light. It can easily be blown out. As we watch a candle burn we see the wax diminish. It melts away - a symbol for life. [...] Candles have long been central to worship. By lighting them we announce that we are entering into a different sense of time. Not the usual ticktock time of daily living, but sacred time, a timeless time.
  • H. G. Wells    We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.
  • H. Jackson Brown, Jr.    Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
  • Hakan Nesser    A good story can travel in time and borders; it hits you no matter where you are.
  • Hal Borland    There are no limits to either time or distance, except as man himself may make them. I have but to touch the wind to know these things.
  • Hal Borland    Time has its own dimensions, and neither the sun nor the clock can encompass them all.
  • Hannah More    He who finds he has wasted a shilling may by diligence hope to fetch it up again; but no repentance or industry can ever bring back one wasted hour.
  • Hannah More    It is the large aggregate of small things perpetually occurring that robs me of all my time. The expense of learning to read might have been spared in my education, for I never read.
  • Harriet Beecher Stowe    The longest day must have its close — the gloomiest night will wear on to a morning. An eternal, inexorable lapse of moments is ever hurrying the day of the evil to an eternal night, and the night of the just to an eternal day.
  • Harriet Beecher Stowe    The past, the present and the future are really one: they are today.
  • Harriet Beecher Stowe    When you get into a tight place, and everything goes against you till it seems as if you couldn't hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that's just the place and time that the tide'll turn.
  • Harry Allen Overstreet    Time the devourer of everything.
  • Harvey Mackay    Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it you can never get it back.
  • Heath Ledger    I'm not good at future planning. I don't plan at all. I don't know what I'm doing tomorrow. I don't have a day planner and I don't have a diary. I completely live in the now, not in the past, not in the future.
  • Hector Berlioz    Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils.
  • Hector Berlioz    Time, time - that is our greatest master! Alas, like Ugolino, time devours its own children.
  • Helen Hooven Santmyer    [Time was] an accordion, all the air squeezed out of it as you grew old.
  • Helen Kieran Reilly    Time is the measure of that which changes.
  • Helen Prejean    Time rushes by and yet time is frozen. Funny how we get so exact about time at the end of life and at its beginning. She died at 6:08 or 3:46, we say, or the baby was born at 4:02. But in between we slosh through huge swatches of time--weeks, months, years, decades even.
  • Helge Ingstad    I came into the world at the right time.
  • Henepola Gunaratana    Mindfulness gives you time. Time gives you choices. Choices, skillfully made, lead to freedom. You don't have to be swept away by your feeling. You can respond with wisdom and kindness rather than habit and reactivity.
  • Henry Austin Dobson    Time goes, you say? Ah, no! alas, time stays, we go.
  • Henry B. Eyring    There is a danger in the word someday when what it means is “not this day.”...The scriptures make the danger of delay clear. It is that we may discover that we have run out of time. The God who gives us each day as a treasure will require an accounting. We will weep, and He will weep, if we have intended to repent and to serve Him in tomorrows which never came or have dreamt of yesterdays where the opportunity to act was past. This day is a precious gift of God. The thought “Someday I will” can be a thief of the opportunities of time and the blessings of eternity.
  • Henry David Thoreau    All questions rely on the present for their solution. Time measures nothing but itself. The word that is written may be postponed, but not that on the lip. If this is what the occasion says, let the occasion say it.
  • Henry David Thoreau    As if you could kill time without injuring eternity.
  • Henry David Thoreau    As they say in geology, time never fails, there is always enough of it, so I may say, criticism never fails.
  • Henry David Thoreau    As yesterday and the historical ages are past, as the work of today is present, so some flitting perspectives and demi-experiences of the life that is in nature are in time veritably future, or rather outside of time, perennial, young, divine, in the wind and rain which never die.
  • Henry David Thoreau    Compared with this simple, fibrous life, our civilized history appears the chronicle of debility, of fashion, and the arts of luxury. But the civilized man misses no real refinement in the poetry of the rudest era. It reminds him that civilization does but dress men. It makes shoes, but it does not toughen the soles of the feet. It makes cloth of finer texture, but it does not touch the skin. Inside the civilized man stands the savage still in the place of honor. We are those blue-eyed, yellow-haired Saxons, those slender, dark-haired Normans.
  • Henry David Thoreau    Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each. Let them be your only diet drink and botanical medicines.
  • Henry David Thoreau    Men seem anxious to accomplish an orderly retreat through the centuries, earnestly rebuilding the works behind them, as they are battered down by the encroachments of time; but while they loiter, they and their works both fall prey to the arch enemy.
  • Henry David Thoreau    Most men I do not meet at all, for they seem not to have time; they are busy about their beans.
  • Henry David Thoreau    No domain of nature is quite closed to man at all times.
  • Henry David Thoreau    The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.
  • Henry David Thoreau    The true finish is the work of time, and the use to which a thing is put. The elements are still polishing the pyramids.
  • Henry David Thoreau    Time hides no treasures; we want not its then, but its now.
  • Henry David Thoreau    Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it; but while I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. Its thin current slides away, but eternity remains.
  • Henry David Thoreau    What a pity if we do not live this short time according to the laws of the long time,--the eternal laws!
  • Henry Ford    It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste.
  • Henry Ford    Time and money spent in helping men to do more for themselves is far better than mere giving.
  • Henry James    To take what there is in life and use it, without waiting forever in vain for the preconceived, to dig deep into the actual and get something out of that; this, doubtless, is the right way to live.
  • Henry Kirke White    Who shall contend with time,--unvanquished time, the conqueror of conquerors and lord of desolation?
  • Henry Van Dyke    Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.
  • Henry Wadsworth Longfellow    Let us then be up and doing, With a heart for any fate, Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait.
  • Henry Wadsworth Longfellow    The morning breaks; the steeds in their stalls Stamp and neigh, as the hostler calls; The day returns, but nevermore Returns the traveler to the shore, And the tide rises, the tide falls.
  • Henry Wadsworth Longfellow    Time has laid his hand Upon my heart, gently, not smiting it, But as a harper lays his open palm Upon his harp, to deaden its vibrations.
  • Henry Wadsworth Longfellow    Time rides with the old At a great pace. As travellers on swift steeds See the near landscape fly and flow behind them, While the remoter fields and dim horizons Go with them, and seem wheeling round to meet them, So in old age things near us slip away, And distant things go with us.
  • Henry Wadsworth Longfellow    To-day, to-morrow, every day, to thousands the end of the world is close at hand. And why should we fear it? We walk here, as it were, in the crypts of life; at times, from the great cathedral above us, we can hear the organ and the chanting choir; we see the light stream through the open door, when some friend goes up before us; and shall we fear to mount the narrow staircase of the grave that leads us out of this uncertain twilight into life eternal?
  • Heraclitus    Everything flows and nothing abides. Everything gives way and nothing stays fixed.
  • Herbert Spencer    Noiseless falls the foot of time That only treads on flowers.
  • Herodotus    For of those [cities] that were great in earlier times, most of them have now become small, while those which were great in my time were small formerly.
  • Hilda Doolittle    Cheat me not with time, with the dull ache of flesh, for all flesh turns, even the loveliest ankle and frail thigh, to bitterest dust.
  • Hilma Wolitzer    Time pulses from the afternoon like blood from a serious wound.
  • Holly Near    Time has passed through me and become a song.
  • Horace    As we speak cruel time is fleeing. Seize the day, believing as little as possible in tomorrow.
  • Horace    Multa ferunt anni venientes commoda secum, Multa recedentes adimiunt. (The years, as they come, bring many agreeable things with them; as they go, they take many away.)
  • Horace    One day is pressed on by another.
  • Horace Mann    Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered for they are gone forever.
  • Hortense Calisher    Decades go faster toward the end of a century.
  • Hugh Jackman    The secret to modern life is finding the measure in time management. I have two kids, career and I travel, and I don't think my life is any different than most couples. The most valuable commodity now for many people is time and how to parcel that out.
  • Hugh Laurie    It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.
  • Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya    Wasting time is worse than death, because death separates you from this world whereas wasting time separates you from Allah.
  • Irina Ratushinskaya    The calendar? A mere convention.
  • Isaac McLellan    Time's flying wheel leaves little trace behind.
  • Isabel Allende    At my age days dissolve like salt in water; the day's gone and I don't even know what I've done with the hours.
  • Issey Miyake    Architects always have a feel for time - the generation they live in - as we do, and they are always striving toward boundless adventure.
  • J. B. Priestley    A good holiday is one spent among people whose notions of time are vaguer than yours.
  • J. K. Rowling    It is a strange thing, but when you are dreading something, and would give anything to slow down time, it has a disobliging habit of speeding up.
  • J. K. Rowling    Time is making fools of us again.
  • J. R. R. Tolkien    All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.
  • Jack London    Darn the wheel of the world! Why must it continually turn over? Where is the reverse gear?
  • Jack Nicholson    Time keeps no measure when true friends are parted, No record day by day; the sands move not for those who, loyal-hearted, friendship's firm laws obey.
  • Jacob Needleman    Why has time disappeared in our culture? How is it that after decades of inventions and new technologies devoted to saving time and labor, the result is that there is no time left? We are a time-poor society; we are temporally impoverished. And there is no issue, no aspect of human life, that exceeds this in importance. The destruction of time is literally the destruction of life.
  • Jacqueline Winspear    If the way ahead is not clear, time is often the best editor of one's intentions.
  • Jacqueline Winspear    Only when we have a respect for time will we have learned something of the art of living.
  • Jacquelyn Mitchard    Here is how it is for women. We become our schedules. That starts to feel good. Then it starts to feel necessary. Then it starts to feel like everything.
  • James A. Baldwin    There is never time in the future in which we will work out our salvation. The challenge is in the moment; the time is always now.
  • James Altucher    Don't time travel into the past, roaming through the nuances as if they can change. Don't bookmark pages you've already read.
  • James Baldwin    There is never time in the future in which we will work out our salvation. The challenge is in the moment; the time is always now.
  • James Broughton    Everything that ever happened is still happening. Past, present and future keep happening in the eternity which is Here and Now.
  • James F. Cooper    On the human imagination events produce the effects of time.
  • James Gleick    One of the ways the telegraph changed us as humans was it gave us a new sense of what time it is. It gave us an understanding of simultaneity. It gave us the ability to synchronize clocks from one place to another. It made it possible for the world to have standard time and time zones and then Daylight Savings Time and then after that jetlag. All of that is due to the telegraph because, before that, the time was whatever it was wherever you were.
  • James M. Barrie    You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by; but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by.
  • James Martineau    We should count time by heart-throbs.
  • James Russell Lowell    God is the only being who has time enough; but a prudent man, who knows how to seize occasion, can commonly make a shift to find as much as he needs.
  • James Russell Lowell    Time is, after all, the greatest of poets; and the sons of Memory stand a better chance of being the heirs of Fame.
  • James Russell Lowell    What a sense of security in an old book which Time has criticized for us!
  • James Taylor    It won't be long before another day, were gonna have a good time. And no ones gonna take that time away. You can stay as long as you like.
  • James Taylor    The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.
  • Jan Struther    To be put down in this world, and given only eighty years to get to know it in, is like being let loose in the United States of America for the first time with a high-powered car and unlimited gasoline - but with a visa that is valid for only a week. It's agonizing, that's what it is.
  • Jane Austen    Oh! do not attack me with your watch. A watch is always too fast or too slow. I cannot be dictated to by a watch.
  • Jane Austen    Time will explain.
  • Jane Austen    Why not seize the pleasure at once? -- How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, foolish preparation!
  • Jane Bryant Quinn    The shortest period of time lies between the minute you put some money away for a rainy day and the unexpected arrival of rain.
  • Jane Garmey    It's amazing how much time one can spend in a garden doing nothing at all. I sometimes think, in fact, that the nicest part of gardening is walking around in a daze, idly deadheading the odd dahlia, wondering where on earth to squeeze in yet another impulse buy, debating whether to move the recalcitrant artemisia one more time, or daydreaming about where to put the pergola.
  • Jane Hirshfield    That these are places of beauty and of changed landscape is helpful - but far more important for me is that they offer what I feel as a monastic luxury: undisturbed time.
  • Jane Kenyon    Be a good steward of your gifts. Protect your time. Feed your inner life. Avoid too much noise. Read good books, have good sentences in your ears. Be by yourself as often as you can. Walk. Take the phone off the hook. Work regular hours.
  • Janet Erskine Stuart    The way to do much in a short time is to love much. People will do great things if they are stirred with enthusiasm and love.
  • Jean Baptiste Massillon    Our acts of kindness we reserve for our friends, our bounties for our dependants, our riches for our children and relations, our praises for those who appear worthy of them, our time we give all to the world; we expose it, I may say, a prey to all mankind.
  • Jean Baptiste Massillon    Whatever passes away is too vile to be the price of time, which is itself the price of eternity.
  • Jean Cocteau    Art produces ugly things which frequently become more beautiful with time. Fashion, on the other hand, produces beautiful things which always become ugly with time.
  • Jean de la Bruyere    Those who make the worst use of their time are the first to complain of its shortness.
  • Jean de La Fontaine    Patience and time do more than strength or passion.
  • Jean Giono    Days begin and end in the dead of night. They are not shaped long, in the manner of things which lead to ends - arrow, road, man's life on earth. They are shaped round, in the manner of things eternal and stable - sun, world, God.
  • Jean-Paul Sartre    The real nature of the present revealed itself: it was what exists, all that was not present did not exist.
  • Jean-Paul Sartre    Three o'clock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do.
  • Jeb Corliss    My time on this world is limited, but the things I can do with that time are not.
  • Jeff Buckley    "Time to write and sing, to laugh, to listen, to discover, to cry, to love music."
  • Jeremy Irons    We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams.
  • Jerome K. Jerome    Time is but the shadow of the world upon the background of Eternity.
  • Jesse Jackson    Time is neutral and does not change things. With courage and initiative, leaders change things.
  • Jhoon Goo Rhee    A procrastinator is a thief of his or her own time.
  • Jiddu Krishnamurti    Have you ever noticed a tree standing naked against the sky, How beautiful it is? All its branches are outlined, and in its nakedness There is a poem, there is a song. Every leaf is gone and it is waiting for the spring. When the spring comes, it again fills the tree with The music of many leaves, Which in due season fall and are blown away. And this is the way of life.
  • Jim Bishop    Nothing is as far away as one minute ago.
  • Jim Rohn    Don't spend most of your time on the voices that don't count, voices that are going to add too little worth to your future. Don't waste time on the shallow and the silly. Tune those voices out and tune in voices that are going to add something to your life
  • Jim Rohn    It takes time to build a corporate work of art. It takes time to build a life. And it takes time to develop and grow. So give yourself, your enterprise, and your family the time they deserve and the time they require.
  • Jim Rohn    Life expects us to make a reasonable amount of progress in a reasonable amount of time. That's why they make those second grade chairs so small.
  • Jim Rohn    Life is not just the passing of time. Life is the collection of experiences and their intensity.
  • Jim Rohn    Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.
  • Jim Rohn    Without a sense of urgency, desire loses its value.
  • Jim Rohn    You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.
  • Jo Walton    There's a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they're absolutely free. Don't miss so many of them.
  • Joan D. Chittister    Nothing weighs more heavily on age than time. Nothing has more meaning … Now time becomes, with a kind of ruthless honesty, what it has always been: life's most precious commodity. The only difference is that, finally, we know it.
  • Joan Rivers    You have to do more than just kill time or time will quickly kill you.
  • Joanna Baillie    Time never bears such moments on his wing as when he flies too swiftly to be marked.
  • Joel Osteen    Life is flying by. You don't have time to waste another minute being negative, offended or bitter. If someone did you wrong, get over it and move forward.
  • Joel Osteen    No matter how long it's been, no matter how impossible it looks, if you'll stay in faith, your time is coming.
  • Johann Georg Ritter von Zimmermann    Time is never more misspent than while we declaim against the want of it; all our actions are then tinctured with peevishness. The yoke of life is certainly the least oppressive when we carry it with good-humor; and in the shades of rural retirement, when we have once acquired a resolution to pass our hours with economy, sorrowful lamentations on the subject of time misspent and business neglected never torture the mind.
  • Johann Ludwig Tieck    Time passes cold and indifferent over us; it knows nothing of our joys or sorrows; it leads us with ice-cold hand deeper and deeper into the labyrinth.
  • Johann Wolfgang von Goethe    My inheritance how lordly wide and fair; Time is my fair seed-field, to Time I'm heir.
  • Johann Wolfgang von Goethe    Nothing should be valued higher than the value of the day.
  • Johann Wolfgang von Goethe    Time is a strange thing. It is a whimsical tyrant, which in every century has a different face for all that one says and does.
  • John Archibald Wheeler    Time is what prevents everything from happening at once.
  • John Baldwin Buckstone    Time was made for slaves.
  • John Berger    Modern thought has transferred the spectral character of Death to the notion of time itself. Time has become Death triumphant over all.
  • John Cage    There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear. In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot.
  • John Daishin Buksbazen    In studying ourselves, we find the harmony that is our total existence. We do not make harmony. We do not achieve it or gain it. It is there all the time. Here we are, in the midst of this perfect way, and our practice is simply to realize it and then to actualize it in our everyday life.
  • John Dewey    Time and memory are true artists; they remould reality nearer to the heart's desire.
  • John Donne    Love, all alike, no season knows, nor clime, nor hours, days, months, which are the rags of time.
  • John Dos Passos    Time has an undertaking establishment on every block and drives his coffin nails faster than the steam riveters rivet or the stenographers type or the tickers tick out fours and eights and dollar signs and ciphers.
  • John F. Kennedy    For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.
  • John F. Kennedy    The supreme reality of our time is the vulnerability of our planet.
  • John F. Kennedy    We must use time as a tool, not as a couch.
  • John Glenn    There is still no cure for the common birthday.
  • John Greenleaf Whittier    Time is hastening on, and we What our fathers are shall be,-- Shadow-shapes of memory! Joined to that vast multitude Where the great are but the good.
  • John Gresham Machen    God is the ruler of history. His times are well chosen The Roman Empire was an instrument in his hand. And so are the nations of the modern world.

  • John Milton    The childhood shows the man, as morning shows the day.
  • John Milton    Time will run back and fetch the Age of Gold.
  • John Ruskin    Do not think of your faults, still less of other's faults; look for what is good and strong, and try to imitate it. Your faults will drop off, like dead leaves, when their time comes.
  • John Taylor    Put your trust in the living God and all will be right in time and eternity.
  • John Wesley    Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.
  • Joko Beck    Life always gives us exactly the teacher we need at every moment. This includes every mosquito, every misfortune, every red light, every traffic jam, every obnoxious supervisor (or employee), every illness, every loss, every moment of joy or depression, every addiction, every piece of garbage, every breath. Every moment is the guru.
  • Jonathan Carroll    Both young children and old people have a lot of time on their hands. That's probably why they get along so well.
  • Jonathan Edwards    I resolve to live with all my might while I do live. I resolve never to lose one moment of time and to improve my use of time in the most profitable way I possibly can. I resolve never to do anything I wouldn't do, if it were the last hour of my life.
  • Jonathan Nolan    Look at anyone's bookcase at home, no matter how modest, and you're going to find a book that contains wisdom or ideas or a language that's at least a thousand years old. And the idea that humans have created a mechanism to time travel, to hurl ideas into the future, it sort of bookends. Books are a time machine.
  • Jorge Luis Borges    Time can't be measured in days the way money is measured in pesos and centavos, because all pesos are equal, while every day, perhaps every hour, is different.
  • Jorge Luis Borges    Time forks perpetually toward innumerable futures.
  • Jorge Luis Borges    Time is the substance from which I am made. Time is a river which carries me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire.
  • Joseph Addison    Nothing lies on our hands with such uneasiness as time. Wretched and thoughtless creatures! In the only place where covetousness were a virtue we turn prodigals.
  • Joseph Addison    The hours of a wise man are lengthened by his ideas, as those of a fool are by his passions. The time of the one is long, because he does not know what to do with it; so is that of the other, because he distinguishes every moment of it with useful or amusing thoughts--or, in other words, because the one is always wishing it away, and the other always enjoying it.
  • Joseph Campbell    Sacred space and sacred time and something joyous to do is all we need. Almost anything then becomes a continuous and increasing joy. What you have to do, you do with play. I think a good way to conceive of sacred space is as a playground. If what you're doing seems like play, you are in it. But you can't play with my toys, you have to have your own. Your life should have yielded some. Older people play with life experiences and realizations or with thoughts they like to entertain. In my case, I have books I like to read that don't lead anywhere.
  • Joseph Glanvill    Time, as a river, hath brought down to us what is more light and superficial, while things more solid and substantial have been immersed.
  • Joseph Joubert    Imitate time; it destroys everything slowly; it undermines, it wears away, it detaches, it does not wrench.
  • Josephine Winslow Johnson    And blessed are they who have learned the rhythms of the invisible clock whose hours and minutes are immense and soundless. The great clock of the seasons and the years, and the small clock of the intuition, whose timing is guided by the heart.
  • Josh Billings    Time is like money, the less we have of it to spare the further we make it go.
  • Joyce Carol Oates    Near the point of impact, time acelerates to the speed of light.
  • Joyce Meyer    Don't waste your time being upset about something you can't change. Begin again and do it better this time.
  • Julia Abigail Fletcher Carney    Little drops of water, little grains of sand, Make the mighty ocean, and the pleasant land. So the little minutes, humble though they be, Make the mighty ages of eternity.
  • Julia Cameron    We all have time to write. We have time to write the minute we are willing to write badly, to chase a dead end, to scribble a few words, to write for the hell of it instead of for the perfect and polished result.
  • Julia McNair Wright    I don't lose an hour in the morning and expect to make it up in the evening; night is the wrong end of the day to borrow from.
  • Jurgen Klopp    It needs time. Nobody wants to hear it, but that's the truth: if you want to have success in the future, you have to be ready to work now.
  • Kanye West    The only luxury is time. The time you get to spend with your family.
  • Kanye West    Time is the only luxury. It's the only thing you can't get back. If you lose your luggage - I'm not gonna say the obvious brand of luggage that I'd normally say because I've got a meeting with them soon - if you lose your expensive luggage at the airport, you can get that back. You can't get the time back.
  • Karan Casey    We empower ourselves every time we accept responsibility for choosing the thoughts and feelings we act on.
  • Karl Lagerfeld    For every book you buy, you should buy the time to read it.
  • Karl Marx    We should not say that one man's hour is worth another man's hour, but rather that one man during an hour is worth just as much as another man during an hour. Time is everything, man is nothing: he is at the most time's carcass.
  • Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel    Every philosophical review ought to be a philosophy of reviews at the same time.
  • Kate Jackson    It does take a long time and a lot of paint to become our own artist.
  • Kathie Lee Gifford    Twenty-four hours is never enough for a busy person and way too much for somebody with nothing to do.
  • Kelly Slater    Not to sound too deep or weird, but I think that the times when you really appreciate surfing are the times you're really sort of becoming one with nature. Surfing's as raw of a sport as it gets.
  • Ken Kesey    The raw materials of reality without the glue of time are materials adrift and reality is as meaningless as the balsa parts of a model airplane scattered to the wind.
  • Kendrick Lamar    Am I the only one who measures time using songs? “Oh it only took me 4 songs to get here! that’s not too long!"
  • Kenneth Franklin    Whenever you note the time on the clock, realize that it is now—right now—later than it has ever been.
  • Kevin Young    There's something about the kind of time travel that a poem can provide. It can take you to somewhere else - a culture far from you, a language far from you, but suddenly you're there. You're that person, seeing with that person's eyes. I think that's really tremendous. Even things like cinema or more traditional history can't quite do that.
  • Khalil Gibran    Time has been transformed, and we have changed; it has advanced and set us in motion; it has unveiled its face, inspiring us with bewilderment and exhilaration.
  • Khalil Gibran    Yesterday is but today's memory, and tomorrow is today's dream.
  • Kip Thorne    Closed timelike curve' is the jargon for time travel. It means you go out, come back and meet yourself in the past.
  • Kiran Bedi    People who do not take charge of their lives are lathi-charged by time.
  • L. S. Lowry    It was the only thing I had to do. I worked to get rid of the time, even now I work for something to do. Painting is a wonderful way of getting rid of the days.
  • Lance Armstrong    Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
  • Lauren Miller    That's the funny thing about life. We're rarely aware of the bullets we dodge. The just-misses. The almost-never-happeneds. We spend so much time worrying about how the future is going to play out and not nearly enough time admiring the precious perfection of the present.
  • Laurence Boldt    I am happy that I am a unique individual, endowed with unique talents and abilities. I never spend my precious time and energy comparing my talents with those of others.
  • Laurence Sterne    If time, like money, could be laid by while one was not using it, there might be some excuse for the idleness of half of the world, but yet not a full one. For even this would be such an economy as the living on a principal sum, without making it purchase interest.
  • Lee Iacocca    If you want to make good use of your time, you've got to know what's most important and then give it all you've got.
  • Lee Krasner    I need to be alone for certain periods of time or I violate my own rhythm.
  • Leo Kennedy    The surest way to be late is to have plenty of time.
  • Leo Tolstoy    The strongest of all warriors are these two — Time and Patience.
  • Leonard Bernstein    To achieve great things, two things are needed; a plan, and not quite enough time.
  • Leonard Peltier    To heal will require real effort, and a change of heart, from all of us. To heal means that we will begin to look upon one another with respect and tolerance instead of prejudice, distrust and hatred. We will have to teach our children-as well as ourselves-to love the diversity of humanity....We can do it. Yes, you and I and all of us together. Now is the time. Now is the only possible time. Let the Great Healing begin.
  • Leonardo da Vinci    Time stays long enough for anyone who will use it.
  • Lewis B. Smedes    Forgiving does not usually happen at once. It is a process, sometimes a long one, especially when it comes to wounds gouged deep. And we must expect some lapses...some people seem to manage to finish off forgiving in one swoop of the heart. But when they do, you can bet they are forgiving flesh wounds. Deeper cuts take more time and can use a second coat.
  • Lewis Carroll    The time has come,' the walrus said, 'to talk of many things: of shoes and ships - and sealing wax - of cabbages and kings.'
  • Lewis Wolpert    It is not birth, marriage, or death, but gastrulation which is truly the most important time in your life.
  • Linda L. Richards    You don't get to make withdrawals from the time bank. Only deposits.
  • Lloyd Alexander    Thinking is a bit uncomfortable, but you'll get used to it. A matter of time and practice.
  • Lord Chesterfield    I recommend you to take care of the minutes, for the hours will take care of themselves.
  • Lord Chesterfield    Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness, no laziness, no procrastination: never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
  • Louis MacNeice    The sunlight on the garden Hardens and grows cold, We cannot cage the minute Within its nets of gold.
  • Louisa May Alcott    When I had youth I had no money; now I have the money I have no time; and when I get the time, if I ever do, I shall have no health to enjoy life. I suppose it's the discipline I need; but it's rather hard to love the things I do, and see them go by because duty chains me to my galley. If I ever come into port with all sails set, that will be my reward perhaps.
  • Louise Erdrich    Time is the water in which we live, and we breathe it like fish. ... Time pours into us and then pours out again. In between the two pourings we live our destiny.
  • Louise J. Kaplan    Adolescence is the time to enlarge the natural sentiments of pity, friendship, and generosity, the time to develop an understanding of human nature and the varieties of human character, the time to gain insight into the strengths and weaknesses of all men and to study the history of mankind.
  • Luc de Clapiers    We don't have enough time to premeditate our actions.
  • Lucy Maud Montgomery    It doesn't take long to stay an hour.
  • Ludovico Einaudi    It is only when we become aware that our time is limited that we can channel our energy into truly living.
  • Lydia Sigourney    As nothing truly valuable can be attained without industry, so there can be no persevering industry without a deep sense of the value of time.
  • Lyndon B. Johnson    Heck by the time a man scratches his behind, clears his throat, and tells me how smart he is, we've already wasted fifteen minutes.
  • M. F. K. Fisher    I like old people when they have aged well. And old houses with an accumulation of sweet honest living in them are good. And the timelessness that only the passing of Time itself can give to objects both inside and outside the spirit is a continuing reassurance.
  • M. Scott Peck    Until you value yourself, you won't value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.
  • Madeleine L'Engle    Time exists so that everything doesn't happen at once.
  • Malcolm Forbes    By the time we've made it, we've had it.
  • Malcolm X    Any time you see someone more successful than you are, they are doing something you aren't.
  • Marc Bolan    There is so little time for us all; I need to be able to say what I want quickly and to as many people as possible.
  • Marcel Proust    A sleeping man holds in a circle around him the thread of the hours, the order of years and of worlds. He consults them instinctively upon awaking and in one second reads in them the point of the earth that he occupies, the time past until his arousal; but their ranks can be mingled or broken.
  • Marcel Proust    Theoretically, we know that the world turns, but in fact we do not notice it, the earth on which we walk does not seem to move and we live on in peace. This is how it is concerning Time in our lives. And to render its passing perceptible, novelists must... have their readers cross ten, twenty, thirty years in two minutes.
  • Marcus Aurelius    How very near us stand the two vast gulfs of time, the past and the future, in which all things disappear.
  • Marcus Aurelius    Most of what we say and do is unnecessary: remove the superfluity, and you will have more time and less bother. So in every case one should prompt oneself: 'Is this, or is it not, something necessary?' And the removal of the unnecessary should apply not only to actions but to thoughts also: then no redundant actions either will follow.
  • Marcus Aurelius    Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away.
  • Marcus Aurelius    Waste no more time arguing what a good man should be. Be one.
  • Marcus Tullius Cicero    Time is the herald of truth.
  • Margaret Atwood    Time is not a line but a dimension, like the dimensions of space. If you can bend space you can bend time also, and if you knew enough and could move faster than light you could travel backwards in time and exist in two places at once.
  • Margery Sharp    There is nothing so intractable as a calendar.
  • Marguerite Yourcenar    I knew that good like bad becomes a routine, that the temporary tends to endure, that what is external permeates to the inside, and that the mask, given time, comes to be the face itself.
  • Maria Konnikova    Our memory is and always will be as good as time travel gets, and in the meantime time will do the travelling for us.
  • Marianne Moore    When you take my time, you take something I had meant to use.
  • Marianne Williamson    God exists in eternity. The only point where eternity meets time is in the present. The present is the only time there is.
  • Marie Bashkirtseff    Time is the most terrible, the most discouraging, the most unconquerable of all obstacles, and one that may exist when no other does.
  • Marie de Rabutin-Chantal, marquise de Sevigne    I dislike clocks with second-hands; they cut up life into too small pieces.
  • Marie de Rabutin-Chantal, marquise de Sevigne    The days, and the months, and the years, pass so swiftly, that I can no longer retain them. Time, in its flight, hurries me away, in spite of myself; in vain I endeavor to stop him, he drags me along: the thought of this alarms me.
  • Mariel Hemingway    Finding some quiet time in your life, I think, is hugely important.
  • Marilyn Monroe    I've been on a calendar, but I've never been on time.
  • Marilynne Robinson    The force behind the movement of time is a mourning that will not be comforted. That is why the first event is known to have been an expulsion, and the last is hoped to be a reconciliation and return. So memory pulls us forward, so prophecy is only brilliant memory - there will be a garden where all of us as one child will sleep in our mother Eve, hooped in her ribs and staved by her spine.
  • Marilynne Robinson    You never know when you might be seeing someone for the last time.
  • Marina Abramovic    Time is an illusion. Time only exists when we think about the past and the future. Time doesn't exist in the present here and now.
  • Mario Quintana    Don't waste your time chasing butterflies. Mend your garden, and the butterflies will come.
  • Mark Ryden    I find it so much easier to be creatively free at night. Daytime is for sleeping. Nighttime is the best time for making art. The later at night it gets the further into another world you go.
  • Mark Strand    We’re only here for a short while. And I think it’s such a lucky accident, having been born, that we’re almost obliged to pay attention.
  • Mark Twain    Geological time is not money.
  • Mark Twain    I didn't have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.
  • Mark Twain    Never put off till tomorrow what you can do day after tomorrow just as well.
  • Marlene Dumas    Painting doesn't freeze time. It circulates and recycles time like a wheel that turns. Those who were first might well be last. Painting is a very slow art. It doesn't travel with the speed of light. That's why dead painters shine so bright.
  • Martha Ostenso    Time passed so much more slowly than space.
  • Martha Ostenso    Time, designing slowly, swiftly; Time, destroying slowly, swiftly; Time holding, possessing the earth in its tender indifference.
  • Martin Amis    Sometimes I feel that life is passing me by, not slowly either, but with ropes of steam and spark - spattered wheels and a hoarse roar of power or terror. It's passing, yet I'm the one who's doing all the moving.
  • Martin Amis    Time, the human dimension, which makes us everything we are.
  • Martin Farquhar Tupper    In the morning of life, before its wearisome journey, The youthful soul doth expand, in the simple luxury of being; It hath not contracted its wishes, nor set a limit on its hopes; The wing of fancy is unclipped, and sin hath not seared the feelings: Each feature is stamped with immortality, for all its desires are infinite, And it seeketh an ocean of happiness, to fill the deep hollow within.
  • Martin Luther King, Jr.    There comes a time when one must take the position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must do it because conscience tells him it is right.
  • Martin Luther King, Jr.    We must use time creatively.
  • Mary Borden    One wants more time, more youth. That is it. That is all one asks for - nothing but that, a little more time. Hear it running by! Listen! In the night, in the morning, at noon, at even, rushing by, silent, stealthy, trying to hoodwink you by the fixed appearance of things that seem not to change; but never stopping. Oh, to stop it! Oh, to get it back! Oh, to dig one's toes in and refuse to be rushed headlong towards the brink!
  • Mary Brave Bird    There is Indian time and white man's time. Indian time means never looking at the clock. ... There is not even a word for time in our language.
  • Mary Collyer    How tedious is time, when his wings are loaded with expectation!
  • Mary Hunter Austin    The arc of my mind has an equal swing in all directions. I should say the same of your mind if I thought you would believe it. But we are so saturated with the notion that Time is a dimension accessible from one direction only, that you will at first probably be shocked by my saying that I can see truly as far in front of me as I can see exactly behind me.
  • Mary O'Neill    Time is purple / Just before night.
  • Mary Ruefle    I seek an extended period of time, free from all distractions, so that I might be free to be distracted.
  • Mary Ruefle    The wasting of time is the most personal, most private, most intimate form of conversation with oneself, as well as with another.
  • Mason Cooley    A free spirit must be able to surmount anxiety time after time.
  • Mason Cooley    Age: I go slower as time goes faster.
  • Mason Cooley    If I want my time wasted, I'll waste it myself.
  • Mason Cooley    Neat trick: to be roused to ambition and reconciled to one's mediocrity at the same time.
  • Mason Cooley    Regret for wasted time is more wasted time.
  • Mason Cooley    The time I kill is killing me.
  • Matsuo Basho    Operating superficially, the mind is random in its activity and stale in its insights and images. However, with practice and experience the mind is freed from the skull, and the fresh and new can appear as though for the first time.
  • Matt Lucas    The most useful form of time travel would be to go back a year or two and rectify the mistakes we made.
  • Matt Smith    Time travel is such a magic concept.
  • Matthew Arnold    A wanderer is man from his birth. He was born in a ship On the breast of the river of Time.
  • Matthew Arnold    Time may restore us in his course Goethe's sage mind and Byron's force: But where will Europe's latter hour Again find Wordsworth's healing power?
  • Matthew Arnold    Time, so complain'd of, Who to no one man Shows partiality, Brings round to all men Some undimm'd hours.
  • Max Ehrmann    And though behind you lies a road of dust and heat and discouragement, and before you the challenge and uncertainty of untried paths, in this brief hour you are master of all highways, and the universe nestles in your soul.
  • Max Frisch    Time does not change us. It just unfolds us.
  • Maxwell Perkins    You are all right on time, except for the fact that time is the enemy of us all, and especially of the writer.
  • Maya Angelou    If you have done the best you can do and if you have gotten all you could extract from something, you have given all you had to give, then the time has come when you can do no more than say thank you and move on.
  • Maya Angelou    Since time is the one immaterial object which we cannot influence neither speed up nor slow down add to nor diminish it is an imponderably valuable gift.
  • Meher Baba    Live more and more in the Present, which is ever beautiful and stretches away beyond the limits of the past and the future.
  • Melanie Benjamin    What very mysterious things days were. Sometimes they fly by, and other times they seem to last forever, yet they are all exactly twenty-four hours. There's quite a lot we don't know about them.
  • Mervyn Peake    What is Time... That you speak of it so subserviently? Are we to be the slaves of the sun, that second-hand, overrated knob of gilt, or of his sister, that fatuous circle of silver paper? A curse upon their ridiculous dictatorship!
  • Michael Dolan    Time is neither friend nor enemy it's just a measurement.
  • Michael Kors    I think the older I get, the more I realize that the ultimate luxury is time.
  • Michael W. Smith    Some of the most powerful times are when we're quiet.
  • Michel de Montaigne    Aesop, that great man, saw his master making water as he walked. "What!" he said, "Must we void ourselves as we run?" Use our time as best we may, yet a great part of it will still be idly and ill spent.
  • Michel de Montaigne    I have a vocabulary all my own. I "pass the time" when it is wet and disagreeable. When it is fine I do not wish to pass it; I ruminate it and hold on to it. We should hasten over the bad, and settle upon the good.
  • Michel de Montaigne    Time steals away without any inconvenience.
  • Michio Kaku    In Einstein's equation, time is a river. It speeds up, meanders, and slows down. The new wrinkle is that it can have whirlpools and fork into two rivers. So, if the river of time can be bent into a pretzel, create whirlpools and fork into two rivers, then time travel cannot be ruled out.
  • Michio Kaku    Originally, the burden of proof was on physicists to prove that time travel was possible. Now the burden of proof is on physicists to prove there must be a law forbidding time travel.
  • Mick Jagger    Time is on my side, yes it is.
  • Miguel Angel Ruiz    Our life is so short that every time I see my children, I enjoy them as much as I can. Whenever I can, I enjoy my beloved, my family, my friends, my apprentices. But mainly I enjoy myself, because I am with myself all the time. Why should I spend my precious time with myself judging myself, rejecting myself, creating guilt and shame? Why should I push myself to be angry or jealous? If I don't feel good emotionally, I find out what is causing it and I fix it. Then I can recover my happiness and keep going with my story.
  • Miguel de Cervantes    Time ripens all things; no man is born wise.
  • Milan Kundera    At a time when history made its way slowly, the few events were easily remembered and woven into a backdrop, known to everyone, before which private life unfolded the gripping show of its adventures. Nowadays, time moves forward at a rapid pace. Forgotten overnight, a historic event glistens the next day like the morning dew and thus is no longer the backdrop to a narrator's tale but rather an amazing adventure enacted against the background of the over-familiar banality of private life.
  • Milan Kundera    The man hunched over his motorcycle can focus only on the present... he is caught in a fragment of time cut off from both the past and the future... he has no fear, because the source of fear is in the future, and a person freed of the future has nothing to fear.
  • Mitch Albom    One day spent with someone you love can change everything.
  • Monique Wittig    There was a time when you were not a slave, remember that. You walked alone, full of laughter, you bathed bare-bellied. You say you have lost all recollection of it, remember . . . You say there are no words to describe this time, you say it does not exist. But remember. Make an effort to remember. Or, failing that, invent.
  • Mooji    There is a way to again be in real time with the universe, but it is not through force, imagination or manipulation. It is by finding your true Self. When you do, you will not need to manipulate life, it will simply flow.
  • Mortimer Adler    You have to allow a certain amount of time in which you are doing nothing in order to have things occur to you, to let your mind think.
  • Myrtle Reed    The appointed thing comes at the appointed time in the appointed way.
  • Nancy Gibbs    The real luxury travel of the modern age is not through space; it's through time.
  • Nancy Reagan    You learn something out of everything, and you come to realize more than ever that we're all here for a certain space of time, and, and then it's going to be over, and you better make this count.
  • Napoleon Bonaparte    A man's palate can, in time, become accustomed to anything.
  • Napoleon Bonaparte    Occupation is the scythe of time.
  • Napoleon Bonaparte    Surely in a matter of this kind we should endeavor to do something, that we may say that we have not lived in vain, that we may leave some impress of ourselves on the sands of time.
  • Napoleon Bonaparte    Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go in.
  • Napoleon Bonaparte    There is one kind of robber whom the law does not strike at, and who steals what is most precious to men: time.
  • Napoleon Bonaparte    You may ask me for anything you like except time.
  • Napoleon Hill    Don't wait. The time will never be just right.
  • Napoleon Hill    Time is wealth, and unlike money when it is gone you cannot replace it.
  • Natalie Kusz    When one cannot be sure that there are many days left, each single day becomes as important as a year, and one does not waste an hour in wishing that that hour were longer, but simply fills it, like a smaller cup, as high as it will go without spilling over.
  • Nathaniel Hawthorne    Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind.
  • Neal A. Maxwell    Time is clearly not our natural dimension. Thus it is that we are never really at home in time. Alternately, we find ourselves wishing to hasten the passage of time or to hold back the dawn. We can do neither, of course, but whereas the fish is at home in water, we are clearly not at home in time--because we belong to eternity.
  • Neale Donald Walsch    To travel a circle is to journey over the same ground time and time again. To travel a circle wisely is to journey over the same ground for the first time. In this way, the ordinary becomes extraordinary, and the circle, a path to where you wish to be. And when you notice at last that the path has circled back into itself, you realize that where you wish to be is where you have already been ... and always were.
  • Neil deGrasse Tyson    But to carve the Grand Canyon, Earth required millions of years. To excavate Meteor Crater, the universe, using a sixty-thousand-ton asteroid traveling upward of twenty miles per second, required a fraction of a second. No offense to Grand Canyon lovers, but for my money, Meteor Crater is the most amazing natural landmark in the world.
  • Neil deGrasse Tyson    Curious that we spend more time congratulating people who have succeeded than encouraging people who have not.
  • Neil Strauss    In life, people tend to wait for good things to come to them. And by waiting, they miss out. Usually, what you wish for doesn't fall in your lap; it falls somewhere nearby, and you have to recognize it, stand up, and put in the time and work it takes to get to it. This isn't because the universe is cruel. It's because the universe is smart. It has its own cat-string theory and knows we don't appreciate things that fall into our laps.
  • Nel Noddings    I do not need to establish a deep, lasting, time-consuming personal relationship with every student. What I must do is to be totally and nonselectively present to the student-to each student-as he addresses me. The time interval may be brief but the encounter is total.
  • Nelson Mandela    We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.
  • Neville Chamberlain    I believe it is peace for our time.
  • Nhat Hanh    No thought about the past or future can pull you away from your present peace and joy. The universe exists in this present moment. No desire can pull you away from this present peace, not even the desire to become a Buddha or the desire to save all beings. Know that to become a Buddha and to save all beings can only be realized on the foundation of the pure peace of the present moment.
  • Nick Vujicic    We easily become trapped in the 'someday' mentality. Someday I'll have all the money I need to enjoy life. Someday I'll be able to spent more time with my family. Someday I'll have time to relax and do what I love doing.
  • Nicolas Boileau-Despreaux    Time flies and draws us with it. The moment in which I am speaking is already far from me.
  • Nina Berberova    This is my main shortcoming: I was so determined not to lose time that I often did the wrong thing. Not losing time has been my permanent concern since I was three years old, when it dawned on me that time is the warp of life, its very fabric, something that you cannot buy, trade, steal, falsify, or obtain by begging.
  • Nkosi Johnson    Do all you can with what you have in the time you have in the place you are.
  • Noam Chomsky    Students who acquire large debts putting themselves through school are unlikely to think about changing society. When you trap people in a system of debt, they can't afford the time to think.
  • Nora Waln    Time in China has no immediacy as in America. Here I find the swift passage of our few earthly years accepted as naturally as the fall of flower and leaf. ... I hear and speak a language in which grammar has no tense. Both scholars and illiterates, in ordinary daily speech, tell an event of centuries ago as casually as an incident of the hour. Only as my knowledge has accumulated have I been able to know whether something related happened just then or in some past dynasty.
  • Norman Maclean    Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters.
  • Norman Mailer    And so I ask, "Would You agree that sex is where philosophy begins?" But God, who is the oldest of the philosophers, answers in his weary cryptic way, "Rather think of Sex as Time, and Time as the connection of new circuits."
  • Norman Vincent Peale    The how thinker gets problems solved effectively because he wastes no time with futile ifs but goes right to work on the creative how.
  • Octavia E. Butler    People who think about time travel stories sometimes think that going back in time would be fun because you would have all the information you needed to be much more astute than the people there, when the truth is of course you wouldn't.
  • Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.    Take your needle, my child, and work at your pattern; it will come out a rose by and by. Life is like that - one stitch at a time taken patiently and the pattern will come out all right like the embroidery.
  • Oprah Winfrey    All the money in the world doesn't mean a thing if you don't have time to enjoy it.
  • Osamu Tezuka    What is one man's life compared to the eternity of time and space? No more than a snowflake that glitters in the sun for a moment before melting into the flow of time.
  • Osbert Sitwell    In reality, killing time is only the name for another of the multifarious ways by which Time kills us.
  • Oscar Levant    So little time and so little to do.
  • Oscar Wilde    Punctuality is the thief of time.
  • Ovid    All-devouring time, envious age, Nought can escape you, and by slow degrees, Worn by your teeth, all things will lingering die.
  • Ovid    Tempus fugit (time flies).
  • Ovid    We must improve our time; time goes with rapid foot.
  • Owen Feltham    Time is like a ship which never anchors; while I am on board, I had better do those things that may profit me at my landing, than practice such as shall cause my commitment when I come ashore.
  • P. V. Narasimha Rao    Time itself is the solution to all problems.
  • Pablo Picasso    It takes a long time to become young.
  • Paracelsus    Time is a brisk wind, for each hour it brings something new... but who can understand and measure its sharp breath, its mystery and its design?
  • Patricia Hampl    The future is here, now, and the past is full of actual deeds, real history. Utopias hardly have the meat on their bones to sustain a people in grave times.
  • Paul Bowles    Because we don't know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more, perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps 20. And yet it all seems limitless.
  • Paul Gauguin    The public wants to understand and learn in a single day, a single minute, what the artist has spent years learning.
  • Paul Harvey    In times like these, it helps to recall that there have always been times like these.
  • Paul Simon    Time, time, time, see what's become of me, While I looked around, For my possibilities; I was so hard to please.
  • Paulo Coelho    Never save the best for later. You don't know what tomorrow holds.
  • Paulo Coelho    There's no point sitting here, using words that mean nothing. Go and experiment. It's time you got out of here. Go and re-conquer your kingdom, which has grown corrupted by routine. Stop repeating the same lesson, because you won't learn anything new that way.
  • Paulo Coelho    We can sell our time, but we can't buy it back.
  • Pedro Calderon de la Barca    All must yield to the weight of years; conquest is not difficult for time.
  • Peg Bracken    Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.
  • Percy Bysshe Shelley    But I am chained to Time, and cannot thence depart!
  • Percy Bysshe Shelley    Thou shoreless flood, which in thy ebb and flow claspest the limits of mortality.
  • Percy Cerutty    Hard things take time to do. Impossible things take a little longer.
  • Pericles    Time is the wisest counselor of all.
  • Peter Drucker    Time is the scarcest resource.
  • Peter Drucker    Time is totally perishable and cannot be stored. Yesterday's time is gone forever, and will never come back. Time is always in short supply. There is no substitute for time. Everything requires time.
  • Peter Gzowski    Everything in life, I have come to conclude, is about 15 minutes too long. Except for summer - summer never begins early enough and always ends too soon.
  • Peter Megargee Brown    He who makes time precious lives forever.
  • Peter S. Beagle    Only to a magician is the world forever fluid, infinitely mutable and eternally new. Only he knows the secret of change, only he knows truly that all things are crouched in eagerness to become something else, and it is from this universal tension that he draws his power.
  • Philip Toshio Sudo    Each moment is new. We have never lived it before and will never live it again. It is familiar and unfamiliar at the same time.
  • Philip Toshio Sudo    In zen, it is a cardinal sin to waste time. To waste time is to squander the here and now, which, if you think about it, is all that we have.
  • Philip Toshio Sudo    The only time and place to find enlightenment is in this moment. No need to check your watch. The time is now.
  • Philip Toshio Sudo    When in doubt, initiate. Say yes—to love, to life, to joining in with others. That is how we stay on the right path and, at the same time, elevate humanity.
  • Philip Zimbardo    Our time is brief, and it will pass no matter what we do. So let us have purpose in spending it. Let us spend it so that our time matters to each of us, and matters to all those whose lives we touch.
  • Phyllis Bottome    Time indeed has very little to do with living except at its beginning or near its end.
  • Phyllis Chesler    Time is life. Anyone who wastes my time is killing me. Please don't!
  • Piet Pieterszoon Hein    When you feel how depressingly slowly you climb, it's well to remember that Things Take Time.
  • Pope Paul VI    Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.
  • Rabindranath Tagore    The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.
  • Rae Foley    Minutes weren't given you to save but to spend. This is yours - now. Stop and live it.
  • Rainbow Rowell    I like science fiction, I like fantasy, I like time travel, so I had this idea: What if you had a phone that could call into the past?
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    A moment is a concentrated eternity.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    For the time of towns is tolled from the world by funereal chimes, but in nature the universal hours are counted by succeeding tribes of animals and plants, and by growth of joy on joy.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    How silent, how spacious, what room for all, yet without place to insert an atom--in graceful succession, in equal fullness, in balanced beauty, the dance of the hours goes forward still. Like an odor of incense, like a strain of music, like a sleep, it is inexact and boundless. It will not be dissected, nor unraveled, nor shown.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    Illusion, Temperament, Succession, Surface, Surprise, Reality, Subjectiveness,--these are the threads on the loom of time, these are the lords of life.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    The days are made on a loom whereof the warp and woof are past and future time. They are majestically dressed, as if every god brought a thread to the skyey web.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    The inmost in due time becomes the outmost.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    There is a relation between the hours of our life and the centuries of time. As the air I breathe is drawn from the great repositories of nature, as the light on my book is yielded by a star a hundred millions of miles distant, as the poise of my body depends on the equilibrium of centrifugal and centripetal forces, so the hours should be instructed by the ages and the ages explained by the hours.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    There is the illusion of time, which is very deep; who has disposed of it? Mor come to the conviction that what seems the succession of thought is only the distribution of wholes into causal series.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    Time, which shows so vacant, indivisible, and divine in its coming, is slit and peddled into trifles and tatters. A door is to bepainted, a lock to be repaired. I want wood, or oil, or meal, or salt; the house smokes, or I have a headache; then the tax; and an affair to be transacted with a man without heart or brains; and the stinging recollection of an injurious or very awkward word,--these eat up the hours.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    Times of heroism are generally times of terror, but the day never shines in which this element may not work.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    To finish the moment, to find the journey's end in every step of the road, to live the greatest number of good hours, is wisdom. It is not the part of men, but of fanatics, or of mathematicians, if you will, to say, that, the shortness of life considered, it is not worth caring whether for so short a duration we were sprawling in want, or sitting high. Since our office is with moments, let us husband them.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    Tobacco, coffee, alcohol, hashish, prussic acid, strychnine, are weak dilutions; the surest poison is time. This cup which nature puts to our lips, has a wonderful virtue, surpassing that of any other draught. It opens the senses, adds power, fills us with exalted dreams, which we call hope, love, ambition, science; especially it creates a craving for larger draughts of itself.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    We must be very suspicious of the deceptions of the element of time. It takes a good deal of time to eat or to sleep, or to earn a hundred dollars, and a very little time to entertain a hope and an insight which becomes the light of our life.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    With the past, I have nothing to do; nor with the future. I live now.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. No man has learned anything rightly, until he knows that every day is Doomsday.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    Yet time and space are but inverse measures of the force of the soul. The spirit sports with time.
  • Ramana Maharshi    Time and space always change, but there is something which is eternal and changeless. For example, the world and time, past or future, nothing exists for us in sleep. But we exist. Let us try to find out that which is changeless and which always exists.
  • Randy Pausch    The key question to keep asking is, Are you spending your time on the right things? Because time is all you have.
  • Rebecca Solnit    Time itself is our tragedy and most of us are fighting some kind of war against it.
  • Rebecca Solnit    When I think about, say, 1995, or whever the last moment was before most of us were on the internet and had mobile phones, it seems like a hundred years ago. ... Time passed in fairly large units, or at least not in milliseconds and constant updates. A few hours wasn't such a long time to go between moments of contact with your work, your people or your trivia.
  • Richard G. Scott    Don't yield to Satan's lie that you don't have time to study the scriptures. Choose to take time to study them. Feasting on the word of God each day is more important than sleep, school, work, television shows, video games, or social media. You may need to reorganize your priorities to provide time for the study of the word of God. If so, do it!
  • Richard Jefferies    To the soul, there is no past and no future; all is, and will be ever, in now. For artificial purposes time is mutually agreed on, but there is really no such thing.
  • Richard Watson Gilder    I count my time by times that I meet thee; These are my yesterdays, my morrows, noons, And nights, these are my old moons and my new moons. Slow fly the hours, fast the hours flee, If thou art far from or art near to me: If thou art far, the bird's tunes are no tunes; If thou art near, the wintry days are Junes.
  • Rick Warren    The best use of life is love. The best expression of love is time. The best time to love is now.
  • Rita Dove    There are times in life when, instead of complaining, you do something about your complaints.
  • Roald Dahl    We have so much time and so little to do. Strike that, reverse it.
  • Rob Bell    Times change. God doesn’t, but times do. We learn and grow, and the world around us shifts…
  • Robert Breault    Among life's regrets is all the time wasted being early for everything.
  • Robert Breault    For centuries, man believed that the sun revolves around the earth. Centuries later, he still thinks that time moves clockwise.
  • Robert Breault    Time brings an end to everything. We should not mistake for a tragedy what is no more than the passage of time.
  • Robert Breault    Time is a figure eight, at its center the city of Deja Vu.
  • Robert Browning    I trust in nature for the stable laws of beauty and utility. Spring shall plant and autumn garner to the end of time.
  • Robert Browning    Who knows but the world may end tonight
  • Robert Burns    Nae man can tether time or tide.
  • Robert Frost    I could give all to Time except--except What I myself have held.
  • Robert Genn    Do not be frivolous with the gift of a day. Right now it's all you have. Yesterday is history.
  • Robert H. Schuller    Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.
  • Robert H. Schuller    Tough times never last, but tough people do.
  • Robert Herrick    To the Virgins, To Make much of Time Gather ye rose-buds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying; And this same flower that smiles today, Tomorrow will be dying. The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun, The higher he’s a-getting, The sooner will his race be run, And nearer he is to setting. That age is best which is the first, When youth and blood are warmer; But being spent, the worse, and worst Times still succeed the former. Then be not coy, but use your time, And while you may, go marry; For having lost but once your prime, You may for ever tarry.
  • Robert Kiyosaki    Your choices decide your fate. Take the time to make the right ones. If you make a mistake, that's fine; learn from it & don't make it again.
  • Robert Orben    Time flies. It's up to you to be the navigator.
  • Robert Townsend    Is what I'm doing or about to do getting us closer to our objective?
  • Robert Updegraff    To get all there is out of living, we must employ our time wisely, never being in too much of a hurry to stop and sip life, but never losing our sense of the enormous value of a minute.
  • Robin Sharma    Don't LIVE the same year 75 times and call it a Life.
  • Roger Angell    Since baseball time is measured only in outs, all you have to do is succeed utterly; keep hitting, keep the rally alive, and you have defeated time. You remain forever young.
  • Roger Babson    Let him who would enjoy a good future waste none of his present.
  • Romare Bearden    When I conjure these memories, they are of the present to me, because after all, the artist is a kind of enchanter in time.
  • Roop Durgapal    I'm always game for movies based on time travel. Hopefully, someday, I'll be a part of a time travel series of films.
  • Rose Kennedy    It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.
  • Rose Kennedy    Life isn't a matter of milestones, but of moments.
  • Rose Macaulay    Decades have a delusive edge to them. They are not, of course, really periods at all, except as any other ten years may be. But we, looking at them, are caught by the different name each bears, and give them different attributes, and tie labels on them, as if they were flowers in a border.
  • Rose Macaulay    One could do with a longer year - so much to do, so little done, alas.
  • Ross Perot    Keep in mind our Constitution predates the Industrial Revolution. Our founders did not know about electricity, the train, telephones, radio, television, automobiles, airplanes, rockets, nuclear weapons, satellites, or space exploration. There's a lot they didn't know about. It would be interesting to see what kind of document they'd draft today. Just keeping it frozen in time won't hack it.
  • Rudyard Kipling    Cities and Thrones and Powers Stand in Time's eye, Almost as long as flowers, Which daily die.
  • Ruth Carter Stapleton    Time is passing. Each day is a glorious opportunity to live and enjoy. Today I will let the past die - all the undone things, all the misjudged things... Today, there are new pleasures, new challenges, new magic.
  • Ruth Whitman    I keep my clocks a little fast / so time won't take me by surprise.
  • Ryan North    I love the idea that if you're going to travel through time, you do it in this insanely dangerous car travelling at 88 miles per hour.
  • Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander    Don't let anything stop you. There will be times when you'll be disappointed, but you can't stop. Make yourself the best that you can make out of what you are. The very best.
  • Saint Augustine    What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know.
  • Sam Heughan    I'd love to time travel.
  • Samuel Beckett    Have you not done tormenting me with your accursed time! It's abominable! When! When! One day, is that not enough for you, one day he went dumb, one day I went blind, one day we'll go deaf, one day we were born, one day we shall die, the same day, the same second, is that not enough for you? They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it's night once more.
  • Samuel Beckett    That double-headed monster of damnation and salvation--Time.
  • Samuel Butler    Youth is like spring, an over praised season more remarkable for biting winds than genial breezes. Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.
  • Samuel Johnson    Year chases year, decay pursues decay, Still drops some joy from with'ring life away; New forms arise, and diff'rent views engage.
  • Sandra Steingraber    We are all musicians in a great human orchestra, and it is now time to play the Save the World Symphony. You are not required to play a solo, but you are required to know what instrument you hold and play it as well as you can. You are required to find your place in the score. What we love we must protect. That’s what love means. From the right to know and the duty to inquire flows the obligation to act.
  • Sara Teasdale    Time is a kind friend, he will make us old.
  • Sarah Dessen    There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart. So you'd better learn the sound of it. Otherwise you'll never understand what it's saying.
  • Sarah Dessen    What you have to decide... is how you want your life to be. If your forever was ending tomorrow, would this be how you'd want to have spent it? Listen, the truth is, nothing is guaranteed. You know that more than anybody. So don't be afraid. Be alive.
  • Scott Bakula    I've always been a big fan of time travel, and I'm very into the notion that some day we'll be able to do it. Beam me up!
  • Scott Berkun    People who truly have control over time always have some in their pocket to give to someone in need. A sense of priorities drives their use of time and it can shift away from the ordinary work that’s easy to justify, in favor of the more ethereal, deeper things that are harder to justify. They protect their time from trivia and idiocy; these people are time rich. They provide themselves with a surplus of time. They might seem to idle, or relax more often than the rest, but that just might be a sign of their mastery, not their incompetence.
  • Scott Westerfeld    It's amazing how quickly nature consumes human places after we turn our backs on them. Life is a hungry thing.
  • Sean M. Carroll    If time travel were possible, you still wouldn't be able to change the past - it's already happened!
  • Seneca the Younger    An age builds up cities: an hour destroys them.
  • Seneca the Younger    Let me therefore live as if every moment were to be my last.
  • Seneca the Younger    The velocity with which time flies is infinite, as is most apparent to those who look back.
  • Seneca the Younger    There is nothing that we can properly call our own but our time, and yet everybody fools us out of it who has a mind to do it. If a man borrows a paltry sum of money, there must needs be bonds and securities, and every common civility is presently charged upon account. But he who has my time thinks he owes me nothing for it, though it be a debt that gratitude itself can never repay.
  • Seneca the Younger    Time is the greatest remedy for anger.
  • Sergio Bambaren    Decisions are a way of defining ourselves. There comes a time in life when there is nothing else to do but go your own way. Where you are headed there are no trails, no paths, just your own instincts.
  • Shoshana Zuboff    You experience a different sense of time in a community that works the land. Human relationships aren't professionalized or contractualized; family and friends take primacy. Life has much more continuity than discontinuity. There's a great deal of poetry in everyday life.
  • Shunryu Suzuki    So for a period of time each day, try to sit, without moving, without expecting anything, as if you were in your last moment. Moment after moment you feel your last instant. In each inhalation and each exhalation there are countless instants of time. Your intention is to live in each instant.
  • Simone de Beauvoir    For years I thought my work still lay ahead, and now I find it is behind me: there was no moment when it took place.
  • Simone Weil    In this world we live in a mixture of time and eternity. Hell would be pure time.
  • Socrates    Beware the barrenness of a busy life.
  • Sonia Friedman    The greatest gift you will ever have is your life, and the second greatest gift-which you give yourself-is courage to live it to the fullest. Time goes by quickly, and you cannot take it for granted.
  • Sonia Johnson    I don't have time' is the single most frequently given reason for living fractional, perpetually indentured lives, for not living fully or freely. Because time is life, when we say we don't have enough time, we are admitting that we don't have enough life.
  • Sophie Swetchine    Time is the shower of Danae; each drop is golden.
  • Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj    In your world everything must have a beginning and an end. If it does not, you call it eternal. In my view, there is no such thing as beginning and end - these are all related to time. Timeless being is entirely in the now. Being and not-being alternate and their reality is momentary. The immutable Reality lies beyond space and time.
  • Stacy Aumonier    One lives everything down in time.
  • Stanislav Grof    Each of us can manifest the properties of a field of consciousness that transcends space, time, and linear causality.
  • Stephen Hawking    Even if it turns out that time travel is impossible, it is important that we understand why it is impossible.
  • Stephen Hawking    If we want to travel into the future, we just need to go fast. Really fast. And I think the only way we're ever likely to do that is by going into space.
  • Stephen Hawking    Time travel used to be thought of as just science fiction, but Einstein's general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.
  • Stephen Hawking    Time travel was once considered scientific heresy, and I used to avoid talking about it for fear of being labelled a 'crank.'
  • Stephen Hough    Live in the present moment. The past and future are nonexistent. Only the present can be grasped or, better, embraced.
  • Stephen King    Time takes it all, whether you want it to or not.
  • Stephen Levine    If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call to make, who would you call and what would you say? And why are you waiting?
  • Steve Jobs    My favorite things in life don't cost any money. It's really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.
  • Steve Jobs    Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
  • Steve Pavlina    If you don’t take the time to get really clear about exactly what it is you’re trying to accomplish, then you’re forever doomed to spend your life achieving the goals of those who do.
  • Stewart Lee    If I could travel through time, I wouldn't go back and change anything in my life, because I'm delighted with the way it's turned out.
  • Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar    The black holes of nature are the most perfect macroscopic objects there are in the universe: the only elements in their construction are our concepts of space and time.
  • Sundar Pichai    I have a secret project which adds four hours every day to the 24 hours we have. There's a bit of time travel involved.
  • Susan L. Taylor    We each have a finite number of heartbeats, a finite amount of time. But we have enough heartbeats and enough time to do what is important.
  • Suzanne Curchod    You may be more prodigal of time than of money.
  • Suzy Kassem    Time has always been the greatest ally to Truth, because Time eventually relieves and reveals all.
  • Sydney J. Harris    The time to relax is when you don't have time for it.
  • Sydney Smith    Great men hallow a whole people, and lift up all who live in their time.
  • T. S. Eliot    Time present and time past Are both perhaps present in time future, And time future contained in time past. If all time is eternally present All time is unredeemable.
  • Taylor Swift    Standing there at the stage door to the rest of your life. Time to dip your toe into the deep end. Try things. Say hi already. Laugh a lot. Mess up. Apologize. Mess up again. Hug people. Take chances. Trust yourself. Lose things. Get over it. Hold your friends close. Gather your strength. Gain wisdom and beautiful stories. Be brave, and you'll have the time of your life.
  • Tennessee Williams    For time is the longest distance between two places.
  • Teresa Amabile    People are the least creative when fighting the clock... Time pressure stifles creativity because people can't deeply engage with the problem.
  • Thales    Time is the wisest of all things that are; for it brings everything to light.
  • Theophrastus    Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend.
  • Thomas a Kempis    The reflections on a day well spent furnish us with joys more pleasing than ten thousand triumphs.
  • Thomas A. Edison    There is time for everything.
  • Thomas Browne    Nor do they speak properly who say that time consumeth all things; for time is not effective, nor are bodies destroyed by it.
  • Thomas Browne    Think not thy time short in this world, since the world itself is not long. The created world is but a small parenthesis in eternity, and a short interposition, for a time, between such a state of duration as was before it and may be after it.
  • Thomas Carlyle    Naps are a way of traveling painlessly through time into the future.
  • Thomas Carlyle    O Time! Time! how it brings forth and devours! And the roaring flood of existence rushes on forever similar, forever changing!
  • Thomas Carlyle    That great mystery of TIME, were there no other; the illimitable, silent, never-resting thing called Time, rolling, rushing on, swift, silent, like an all-embracing ocean tide, on which we and all the Universe swim like exhalations, like apparitions which are, and then are not: this is forever very literally a miracle; a thing to strike us dumb,-for we have no word to speak about it.
  • Thomas Carlyle    Time has only a relative existence.
  • Thomas Dreier    If we are ever to enjoy life, now is the time-not tomorrow, nor next year, nor in some future life after we have died. The best preparation for a better life next year is a full, complete, harmonious, joyous life this year. Our beliefs in a rich future life are of little importance unless we coin them into a rich present life. Today should always be our most wonderful day.
  • Thomas Gray    Rich with the spoils of time.
  • Thomas Hardy    Time changes everything except something within us which is always surprised by change.
  • Thomas Hartwell Horne    Observe a method in the distribution of your time. Every hour will then know its proper employment, and no time will be lost. Idleness will be shut out at every avenue, and with her that numerous body of vices that make up her train.
  • Thomas Huxley    Time, whose tooth gnaws away everything else, is powerless against truth.
  • Thomas Jefferson    Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.
  • Thomas Ken    Redeem the misspent time that's past, And live this day as 'twere thy last.
  • Thomas Mann    Time cools, time clarifies; no mood can be maintained quite unaltered through the course of hours.
  • Thomas Moore    The past, the future: - two eternities!
  • Thomas Moore    When Time who steals our years away Shall steal our pleasures too, The mem'ry of the past will stay, And half our joys renew.
  • Thomas Paine    These are the times that try men's souls.
  • Thomas Paine    Time makes more converts than reason.
  • Thomas William Parsons    O time! whose verdicts mock our own, the only righteous judge art thou!
  • Thomas Wolfe    Each moment is the fruit of forty thousand years. The minute-winning days, like flies, buzz home to death, and every moment is a window on all time.
  • Thor Heyerdahl    But if we begin thinking about the world being over 100 million years old, then it's absolutely by chance that you and I are sitting here alive today, while all the others are dead or have never been born.
  • Thor Heyerdahl    I also believe that when one dies, one may wake up to the reality that proves that time does not exist.
  • Thor Heyerdahl    I have never been able to grasp the meaning of time. I don't believe it exists. I've felt this again and again, when alone and out in nature. On such occasions, time does not exist. Nor does the future exist.
  • Tillie Olsen    The clock talked loud. I threw it away, it scared me what it talked.
  • Tim O'Brien    A lot like yesterday, a lot like never.
  • Tim Tharp    Life is spectacular. Forget the dark things. Take a drink and let time wash them away to where ever time washes away to.
  • Timothy Leary    Learning how to operate a soul figures to take time.
  • Tommy Fleetwood    Everyone wants to look to the future and into the past. I stay focused on now.
  • Tony Robbins    Life is about the moments: Don't wait for them, create them!
  • Viggo Mortensen    Life is short and the older you get, the more you feel it. Indeed, the shorter it is. People lose their capacity to walk, run, travel, think, and experience life. I realise how important it is to use the time I have.
  • Vincent Van Gogh    It is looking at things for a long time that ripens you and gives you a deeper meaning.
  • Vincent Van Gogh    Life is too short to do the whole.
  • Virgil    Time bears away all things.
  • Virgil    Time is flying never to return.
  • Vita Sackville-West    It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop.
  • W. H. Auden    For time is inches And the heart's changes, Where ghost has haunted Lost and wanted.
  • W. Somerset Maugham    Old age is ready to undertake tasks that youth shirked because they would take too long.
  • Wallace Stevens    It is time that beats in the breast and it is time That batters against the mind, silent and proud, The mind that knows it is destroyed by time.
  • Wallace Stevens    Time is a horse that runs in the heart, a horse Without a rider on a road at night. The mind sits listening and hears it pass.
  • Walt Whitman    Here or henceforward it is all the same to me, I accept Time absolutely.
  • Walter Kirn    The future of time, of how it's won or lost, endured or enjoyed, expanded or compressed, will depend on how it's valued, not how it's measured.
  • Walter Raleigh    Even such is Time, which takes in trust Our youth, our joys, and all we have, And pays us but with age and dust, Who in the dark and silent grave When we have wandered all our ways Shuts up the story of our days, And from which earth, and grave, and dust The Lord shall raise me up, I trust.
  • Walter Scott    The time which passes over our heads so imperceptibly makes the same gradual change in habits, manners and character, as in personal appearance. At the revolution of every five years we find ourselves another and yet the same;--there is a change of views, and no less of the light in which we regard them; a change of motives as well as of action.
  • Walter Scott    Time rolls his ceaseless course.
  • Wanda Koop    There's an assumption that because I'm an artist, I've got all the time in the world.
  • Warren Buffett    Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
  • Warsan Shire    Sad people have the gift of time, while the world dizzies everyone else; they remain stagnant, their bodies refusing to follow pace with the universe. With these kind of people everything aches for too long, everything moves without rush, wounds are always wet.
  • Wayne Dyer    Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.
  • Wayne Dyer    I Intend to Take Time for Myself to Live the Life that I Came Here to Live.
  • Wayne Dyer    Present-moment living, getting in touch with your now, is at the heart of effective living. When you think about it, there really is no other moment you can live. Now is all there is, and the future is just another present moment to live when it arrives.
  • Wayne Dyer    Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.
  • Wayne Dyer    You do indeed have a past, but not now! And, yes, you have a future, but not now! You can consume your now with thoughts of 'then' and 'maybe,' but that will keep you from the inner peace you could experience.
  • Will Rogers    Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.
  • William Arthur Ward    God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say 'thank you?'
  • William Benton Clulow    Time sheds a softness on remote objects or events, as local distance imparts to the landscape a smoothness and mellowness which disappear on a nearer approach.
  • William Blake    Eternity is in love with the productions of time.
  • William Blake    The hours of folly are measured by the clock; but of wisdom, no clock can measure.
  • William Braxton Irvine    By contemplating the impermanence of everything in the world, we are forced to recognize that every time we do something could be the last time we do it, and this recognition can invest the things we do with a significance and intensity that would otherwise be absent. We will no longer sleepwalk through our life.
  • William Butler Yeats    The years like great black oxen tread the world, and God, the herdsman goads them on behind, and I am broken by their passing feet.
  • William Faulkner    Clocks slay time... time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life.
  • William Hazlitt    Time,--the most independent of all things.
  • William J. Clinton    Though we march to the music of our time, our mission is timeless.
  • William Makepeace Thackeray    Time passes, Time the consoler, Time the anodyne.
  • William Mather Lewis    The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we begin it so late.
  • William Penn    Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.
  • William Shakespeare    All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.
  • William Shakespeare    Defer no time, delays have dangerous ends.
  • William Shakespeare    I wasted time, and now doth time waste me.
  • William Shakespeare    Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore, So do our minutes hasten to their end; Each changing place with that which goes before, In sequent toil all forwards do contend.
  • William Shakespeare    Make use of time, let not advantage slip.
  • William Shakespeare    Pleasure and action make the hours seem short.
  • William Shakespeare    The whirligig of time brings in his revenges.
  • William Shakespeare    Thus we play the fool with the time and the spirits of the wise sit in the clouds and mock us.
  • William Shakespeare    Time hath, my lord, a wallet at his back Wherein he puts alms for oblivion, A great-sized monster of ingratitudes: Those scraps are good deeds past, which are devour'd As fast as they are made, forgot as soon as done.
  • William Shakespeare    Time is like a fashionable host That slightly shakes his parting guest by the hand, And with his arm outstretch'd, as he would fly, Grasps in the comer.
  • William Shakespeare    Time's glory is to command contending kings, To unmask falsehood, and bring truth to light.
  • William Shakespeare    Time's the king of men; he's both their parent, and he is their grave, and gives them what he will, not what they crave.
  • William Shakespeare    To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.
  • William Spencer    Too late I stayed, - forgive the crime! Unheeded flew the hours; How noiseless falls the foot of time That only treads on flowers.
  • William Wordsworth    Life is divided into three terms - that which was, which is, and which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit by the present, and from the present, to live better in the future.
  • William Wordsworth    The holy time is quiet as a nun Breathless with adoration.
  • William Wordsworth    The mind that is wise mourns less for what age takes away; than what it leaves behind.
  • Winston Churchill    Everyone has his day and some days last longer than others.
  • Woody Allen    Time is nature's way of keeping everything from happening at once.
  • Yasunari Kawabata    Cosmic time is the same for everyone, but human time differs with each person. Time flows in the same way for all human beings; every human being flows through time in a different way.
  • Yehuda Bauer    I come from a people who gave the Ten Commandments to the world. Time has come to strenghten them by three additional ones, which we ought to adopt and commit ourselves to: thou shall not be a perpetrator; thou shall not be a victim; and thou shall never, but never, be a bystander.
  • Yevgeny Yevtushenko    But time has a way of demonstrating the most stubborn are the most intelligent.
  • Yogi Berra    What Time Is It? You Mean Now?
  • Yoko Ono    I don't think about the future. I don't think about the past. I just think of what comes into my head at the time. So that might be about the past, that might be about the future. Or, the present.
  • Zelda Fitzgerald    I take a sun bath and listen to the hours, formulating, and disintegrating under the pines, and smell the resiny hardihood of the high noon hours. The world is lost in a blue haze of distances, and the immediate sleeps in a thin and finite sun.
  • Zig Ziglar    Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.
  • Zig Ziglar    While 9-5 and what happens on the job is important, what happens from 5-9, off the job, is infinitely more important.
