To realize the value of ONE MONTH,
ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of ONE WEEK,
ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of ONE HOUR,
ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of ONE MINUTE,
ask a person who missed the train.

To realize the value of ONE SECOND,
ask a person who just avoided an accident.

To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND,
ask the person who won a silver medal in the Olympics.

Treasure every moment that you have!
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift.
That’s why it’s called the present!

I am tired of the imposed rhythms of men,
Tethered time, restrained and trained
To a monotonous beat
Digital time blinking exactness
Unliving.
~Phillip Pulfrey

Sometimes I feel that life is passing me by, not slowly either, but with ropes of steam and spark-spattered wheels and a hoarse roar of power or terror.  It’s passing, yet I’m the one who’s doing all the moving.  ~Martin Amis

Time is the fire in which we burn.  ~Delmore Schwartz

You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by; but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by.  ~James Matthew Barrie

The flower that you hold in your hands was born today and already it is as old as you are.  ~Antonio Porchia

The years like great black oxen tread the world
And God, the herdsman, goads them on behind.
~William Butler Yeats

Whether we wake or we sleep,
Whether we carol or weep,
The Sun with his Planets in chime,
Marketh the going of Time.
~Edward Fitzgerald

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

Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils.  ~Louis Hector Berlioz
