Time quotes (87)

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may Old Times is still a-flying: And this same flower that smiles today Tomorrow will be dying.
Robert Herrick   Category: Time

Time is the school in which we learn Time is the fire in which we burn.
Delmore Schwartz   Category: Time

When nothing seems to help I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two and I know it was not that blow that did it but all that had gone before.
Jacob August Riis   Category: Time

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer never give up then for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. quoted by Og Mandino.
Harriet Beecher Stowe   Category: Time

One of the best lessons that anyone can learn in life is how to use time wisely. Consider what can be done in ten minutes. If you need a little mental relaxation you can sit down with a friend and play a game of cards. If you need some physical recreation you can engage in a few exercises that will help tone up your body. Perhaps you have a friend who for weeks or months has been looking for a letter. Then there may be among your acquaintances someone whose friendship you would value highly and whose counsel would be profitable. Learn to use ten minutes intelligently. It will pay you huge dividends.

Time Management Tips: One can make a radar-like sweep of the horizon to identify time and task challenges while these are still manageable and while we still have a choice. The organizational adage the more parts the more trouble also applies to words. Multiplying words may actually multiply the probability of being misunderstood; economies in expression (without being taciturn or aloof) not only save time but usually are more honest and more clear. Regarding writing down thoughts and ideas: often we never recover what came to us once and went unused. What is the wisest use I can make of this sliver of time? Commit rather explicitly to goals.
Neal A. Maxwell   Category: Time

Aulus Persius Flaccus   Category: Time

Well. There was noting to be done for it. Things had happened as they did times arrow had yet to be reversed by humans done was done. If a man spent his life looking over his shoulder at every possible branching of his path he could have taken he would never accomplish anything. One must learn from history so as not to repeat it but one must not waste ones energy or time worrying about what might have been. Sorry ... but people die every day and the galaxy continues on quite well without them. Consider yourself lucky you are one of those as yet unselected by the Fates.

Marcel Archard   Category: Time

What a dead thing is a clock with its ponderous embowelments of lead and brass its pert or solemn dullness of communication compared with the simple altar-like structure and silent heart-language of the old sundials! It stood as the garden god of Christian gardens. Why is it almost everywhere vanished? If its business-use be superseded by more elaborate inventions its moral uses its beauty might have pleaded for its continuance. It spoke of moderate labours of pleasures not protracted after sunset of temperance and good hours. It was the primitive clock the horologue of the first world. Adam could scare have missed it in Paradise.
