Time Quotations

The organized person … makes the most of his time and goes to his bed for the night perfectly relaxed for rest and renewal.

Eternity! thou pleasing, dreadful thought.

Time brings all things to pass.

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. Each of us has a few minutes a day or a few hours a week which we could donate to an old folks home or a children’s hospital ward. The elderly whose pillows we plump or whose water pitchers we refill may or may not thank us for our gift, but the gift is upholding the foundation of the universe.

Time is a very shadow that passeth away.

He who lets time rule him will live the life of a slave.

If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn’t brood. I’d type a little faster.

Time never takes time off.

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.

Let him who would enjoy a good future waste none of his present.
