All About Time...!


Time is one of those things we never have enough of, often wish for more, then waste what we have!

So much has been said about time, that I thought I would go over to BrainyQuote and see what others have had to say about it!

And when is there time to remember, to sift, to weigh, to estimate, to total?
Tillie Olsen

Both young children and old people have a lot of time on their hands. That's probably why they get along so well.
Jonathan Carroll

But time growing old teaches all things.
Aeschylus

By the time we've made it, we've had it.
Malcolm Forbes

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 Faulkner

Day, n. A period of twenty-four hours, mostly misspent.
Ambrose Bierce

Everything happens to everybody sooner or later if there is time enough.
George Bernard Shaw

Finding some quiet time in your life, I think, is hugely important.
Mariel Hemingway

For disappearing acts, it's hard to beat what happens to the eight hours supposedly left after eight of sleep and eight of work.

I must govern the clock, not be governed by it.
Golda Meir

I took some time out for life.
James L. Brooks

I want to go ahead of Father Time with a scythe of my own.
H. G. Wells

If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?
John Wooden

It is my feeling that Time ripens all things; with Time all things are revealed; Time is the father of truth.
Francois Rabelais

Know how to live the time that is given you.
Dario Fo

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

Lose not yourself in a far off time, seize the moment that is thine.
Friedrich Schiller

Lost time is never found again.
Benjamin Franklin

Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them.
Dion Boucicault

Much may be done in those little shreds and patches of time which every day produces, and which most men throw away.
Charles Caleb Colton

Speaking of time, have you time for some fresh coffee on the patio? I certainly hope so! I always like to spend time with my friends!

The one I have lived by and tried to teach is

Glad you found the TIME to post this HermitJim, thanks! Time is the most precious commodity and none of us know how much we have left. Best to spend it on things which matter to us, rather than dwelling on things that don't.

Hey Ben...
That particular saying used to hang in nearly every office of the Telephone Company!

Glad you could drop by this morning, buddy!


Hey Anon 6:22...
How right you are about our time being limited here.

Very important, I believe, to live well and make the most of what time we have left!

I really am glad you could come by today!


Hey Momlady...
Glad to see you are able to post a comment again!

I'm glad to know you enjoyed the post. Just a little something to think about!

Thanks for the visit!


Hey DD...
It's one that so many of us could find the use for, I think!

Thanks for dropping in, my friend!
