Quotes on Time

An unhurried sense of time is in itself a form of wealth.
Bonnie Friedman, in New York Times

Calendars are for careful people, not passionate ones.
Chuck, The World According to Chuck weblog, September 8, 2003

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.
Douglas Adams (1952 - 2001)

Time is a cruel thief to rob us of our former selves. We lose as much to life as we do to death.
Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey, 'A Woman of Independent Means'

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 (1775 - 1817), Mansfield Park

Nothing is as far away as one minute ago.
Jim Bishop

The great French Marshall Lyautey once asked his gardener to plant a tree. The gardener objected that the tree was slow growing and would not reach maturity for 100 years. The Marshall replied, 'In that case, there is no time to lose; plant it this afternoon!'
John F. Kennedy (1917 - 1963)

We must use time as a tool, not as a crutch.
John F. Kennedy (1917 - 1963)

There is never enough time, unless you're serving it.
Malcolm Forbes (1919 - 1990)

Time cools, time clarifies; no mood can be maintained quite unaltered through the course of hours.
Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

So little time and so little to do.
Oscar Levant (1906 - 1972)

Doing a thing well is often a waste of time.
Robert Byrne

Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.
Rodin (1840 - 1917)

What may be done at any time will be done at no time.
Scottish Proverb

People find life entirely too time-consuming.
Stanislaw J. Lec (1909 - 1966), "Unkempt Thoughts"

Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend.
Theophrastus (300 BC - 287 BC), from Diogenes Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers

I don't think of the past. The only thing that matters is the everlasting present.
W. Somerset Maugham (1874 - 1965), The Moon and Sixpence

Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.
Will Rogers (1879 - 1935), New York TImes, Apr. 29, 1930

Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that the stuff life is made of.
Benjamin Franklin

Lost time is never found again.
Benjamin Franklin

Time hasn't stopped for any troubles, heartaches, or any other malfunctions of this world, so please don't tell me it will stop for you.
C.S. Lewis

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.
Carl Sandburg

Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana.
Groucho Marx

It is possible to believe that all the past is but the beginning of a beginning, and that all that is and has been is but the twilight of the dawn. It is possible to believe that all the human mind has ever accomplished is but the dream before the awakening.
H.G. Wells

Reality is a question of perspective; the further you get from the past, the more concrete and plausible it seems -- but as you approach the present, it inevitably seems incredible.
Salman Rushdie

Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols.
Thomas Mann

This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But, it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.
Winston Churchill

Time is like a drug. It kills you if you have too much of it.
Terry Pratchet, "Small Gods", In History

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 Van Dyke, In Love

Time takes it all, whether you want it to or not. Time takes it all, time bears it away, and in the end there is only darkness. Sometimes we find others in that darkness, and sometimes we lose them there again.
Stephen King, "The Green Mile", In Loneliness

Time has convinced me of one thing: Television is for appearing on--not for looking at.
Noel Coward, In TV Shows

Time: that which man is always trying to kill, ends in killing him
Herbert Spencer, In Philosophy

Take death for example. A great deal of our effort goes into avoiding it. We make extraordinary efforts to delay it and often consider its intrusion a tragic event. Yet we'd find it hard to live without it. Death gives meaning to our lives. It gives importance and value to time. Time would become meaningless if there were too much of it. If death were indefinitely put off, the human psyche would end up, well, like the gambler in the "Twilight Zone" episode.
Ray Kurzweil, In Death

Remember: Matter: how tiny your share of it. Time: how brief and fleeting your allotment of it. Fate: how small a role you play in it.
Marcus Aurelius, In Humanity
