Time Management Quotes

There is no greater sorrow than to recall in misery the time when we were happy.

Dante

Silence is sometimes the severest criticism.

Charles Buxton

Solitude is certainly a fine thing; but there is pleasure in having someone who can answer, from time to time, that it is a fine thing.

Jean Louis Guez de Balzac

Live simple, love well, and take time to smell the flowers along the way.

Mark Twain

The death clock is ticking slowly in our breast, and each drop of blood measures its time, and our life is a lingering fever.

Karl Georg Bchner

Someone\\\'s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.

Warren Edward Buffett

Some material things make my life more enjoyable; many, however, would not. I like having an expensive private plane, but owning a half-dozen homes would be a burden. Too often, a vast collection of possessions ends up possessing its owner. The asset I most value, aside from health, is interesting, diverse, and long-standing friends. My wealth has come from a combination of living in America, some lucky genes, and compound interest. Both my children and I won what I call the ovarian lottery. (For starters, the odds against my 1930 birth taking place in the U.S. were at least 30 to 1. My being male and white also removed huge obstacles that a majority of Americans then faced.) My luck was accentuated by my living in a market system that sometimes produces distorted results, though overall it serves our country well. Ive worked in an economy that rewards someone who saves the lives of others on a battlefield with a medal, rewards a great teacher with thank-you notes from parents, but rewards those who can detect the mispricing of securities with sums reaching into the billions. In short, fates distribution of long straws is wildly capricious. The reaction of my family and me to our extraordinary good fortune is not guilt, but rather gratitude. Were we to use more than 1% of my claim checks on ourselves, neither our happiness nor our well-being would be enhanced. In contrast, that remaining 99% can have a huge effect on the health and welfare of others. That reality sets an obvious course for me and my family: Keep all we can conceivably need and distribute the rest to society, for its needs. My pledge starts us down that course.

Warren Edward Buffett

Time is the enemy of the poor business and the friend of the great business. If you have a business that\'s earning 20%-25% on equity, time is your friend. But time is your enemy if your money is in a low return business.

Warren Edward Buffett

Being a well-dressed man is a career, and he who goes in for it has no time for anything else.

Heywood Broun

Time engraves our faces with all the tears we have not shed.

Natalie Clifford Barney

One can only forget about time by making use of it.

Charles Baudelaire

It is easier to be a lover than a husband, for the same reason that it is more difficult to be witty every day, than to say bright things from time to time.

Honor de Balzac

Time flies when you are anxious!

Maria Bamford

The worst men often give the best advice; our thoughts are better sometimes than our deeds.

F. Lee Bailey

Your only obligation in any lifetime is to be true to yourself. Being true to anyone else or anything else is not only impossible, but the mark of a fake messiah.
