Time Organization Quotes Quotes

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.

Richard Bach

No matter how old an individual may be, no matter if he is young or old, if he thinks in accordance with the times he is immortal.

Benjamin Nnamdi Azikiwe

Time is not a line but a dimension, like the dimensions of space.

Margaret Eleanor Atwood

The teachings of Buddha are eternal, but even then Buddha did not proclaim them to be infallible. The religion of Buddha has the capacity to change according to times, a quality which no other religion can claim to have...Now what is the basis of Buddhism? If you study carefully, you will see that Buddhism is based on reason. There is an element of flexibility inherent in it, which is not found in any other religion.

Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar

The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn; the bird waits in the egg; and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.

James Allen

Ofttimes the test of courage becomes rather to live than to die.

Mohamed Abdel Moneim Fayed

By alienation is meant a mode of experience in which the person experiences himself as an alien. He has become, one might say, estranged from himself. He does not experience himself as the centre of his world, as the creator of his own acts - but his acts and their consequences have become his masters, whom he obeys, or whom he may even worship. The alienated person is out of touch with himself as he is out of touch with any other person. He, like the others, is experienced as things are experienced; with the senses and with common sense, but at the same time without being related to oneself and to the world outside positively

Erich Fromm

Young men go to war. Sometimes because they are have to, sometimes because they want to. Always, they feel they are supposed to. This comes from the sad, layered stories of life, which over the centuries have seen courage confused with picking up arms, and cowardice confused with laying them down.

Albom, Mitch

Women have been called queens for a long time, but the kingdom given them isn

Alcott, Louisa May

Though the lion and the antelope happen to live in the same forest, the antelope still has time to grow up. - Cape Coast, Ghana.

African Proverb

This is a race in a heavily Democratic state that, for a Republican candidate, will require full-time devotion in order to win... I could not be a senator and a father during this campaign. I could only be a candidate.

Peter G. Fitzgerald

We live in deeds, not years: In thoughts not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
