Time Quotes

Old age is like a plane flying through a storm. Once you're aboard, there's nothing you can do. You can't stop the plane, you can't stop the storm, you can't stop time. So one might as well accept it calmly, wisely.

Golda Meir 1898

Sadness flies away on the wings of time.

Jean de La Fontaine

Lives of great men all remind us we can make our lives sublime. And, departing, leave behind us footprints on the sands of time.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Nations do not think, they only feel. They get their feelings at second hand through their temperaments, not their brains. A nation can be brought -- by force of circumstances, not argument -- to reconcile itself to any kind of government or religion that can be devised; in time it will fit itself to the required conditions; later it will prefer them and will fiercely fight for them.

Mark Twain

The primary purpose of a liberal education is to make one's mind a pleasant place in which to spend one's time.

If there are no stupid questions, then what kind of questions do stupid people ask? Do they get smart just in time to ask questions?

Sex in the morning. Which is the best time to have it. As long as you've cleaned your teeth beforehand.

Thom Yorke

I do not believe we are all created equal. Physical and emotional differences, parental guidance, varying environments, being in the right place at the right time all play a role in enhancing or limiting development. But I do believe every man and woman, if given the opportunity and encouragement to recognize their potential, regardless of background, has the freedom to choose in our world. Will an individual be a taker or a giver in life? Will he be satisfied merely to exist, or will he seek a meaningful purpose? Will he dare to dream the impossible dream?

zzz

For the first time in history, sex is more dangerous than the cigarette afterward.

Jay Leno

Disappointment or misfortune don't last long among us, the poor; we can't live if we brood on them the whole time.

Viramma Racine

Retirement, a time to rediscover your passion.What would you work at if you didn't have to earn money!

Catherine Pulsifer

When a man retires and time is no longer a matter of urgent importance, his colleagues generally present him with a watch.

R.C. Sherriff

Life is like an onion: You peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.

Carl Sandburg

The true test of the American ideal is whether we’re able to recognize our failings and then rise together to meet the challenges of our time. Whether we allow ourselves to be shaped by events and history, or whether we act to shape them. Whether chance of birth or circumstance decides life’s big winners and losers, or whether we build a community where, at the very least, everyone has a chance to work hard, get ahead, and reach their dreams.

Barack Obama

Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness; no laziness; no procrastination; never put off till to-morrow what you can do to-day.

Lord Chesterfield

Work is the order of the day, just as it was at one time, with our first starts and our best efforts. Do you remember? Therein lies its delight. It brings back the forgotten; one's stores of energy, seemingly exhausted, come back to life.

Boris Pasternak

Lost time is never found again.

Benjamin Franklin

If you get up one more time than you fall you will make it through.

Chinese

You may delay, but time will not.

Benjamin Franklin

For the world was built in order Around the atoms march in tune; Rhyme the pipe, and Time the warder, The sun obeys them, and the moon.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The time is always right to do what is right.

Martin Luther King Jr

Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away.

Marcus Aurelius

We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams.

Jeremy Irons

Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it you can never get it back.

Harvey MacKay
