I was promised on a time
To have reason for my rhyme;
From that time unto this season,
I received nor rhyme nor reason.
The loss of wealth is loss of dirt,
As sages in all times assert;
The happy man’s without a shirt.
Each time dawn appears, the mystery is there in its entirety.
He that has time, has life.
Times change and we with them.
Life is short and time is swift.
Patience and time do more than force and rage.
Jean de la Fontaine
Time is but the stream I go fishing in.
Henry David Thoreau
To grow old is to grow common. Old age equalizes - we are aware that what is happening to us has happened to untold numbers from the beginning of time. When we are young we act as if we were the first young people in the world.
Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.
Sydney J. Harris
I wasted time, and now doth time waste me.
For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity.
