Time Quotes

It is too great comfort which turns a man against himself. Life is most readily renounced at the time and among the classes where it is least harsh

Sir J Lubbock

I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot.

I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.
