The time to relax is when
you donít have the
time for it.
Sydney J. Harris
We cannot separate our lives from time.
Why is it that we are so extravagant,
so thoughtless, in our waste of time, especially in youth, when we
so tenaciously to life? You cannot separate a wasted hour
from the same duration
of your life. If you waste your time, you must waste your
life. If you improve

or consider them? In the world of wild Nature, time is

who make the worst use of their time are the first to
complain of its
created time and gave it to us. It is his fundamental gift,
for all other gifts are conditioned upon it. Why should we

upon the things that God knows and we know are vital
things? -E.A. Rountree
the true value of time! Snatch, seize, and enjoy
every moment of it. No idleness, no laziness, no
Never put off until tomorrow what you can do
is time? The shadow on the dial, the striking of the clock,
the running of the sand, day and night, summer and winter, months,
years, centuries--these are but arbitrary and outward signs,

the Soul. -Henry

we can't do either. We have no choice but
to spend it at a constant and flowing
|Many of us cannot grasp the truth that the time

fast food in the car, and racing down the
freeway. . . . Today, this
very day, why donít you think of
something that takes a bit of extra
time to do and do it. . . .
Maybe it will be an act of generosity or a
kindness directed towards a loved one or a stranger.
Perhaps it will be simply singing a hymn of praise and
because your heart is so full of gratitude.

Rejoice in this day and be

you spend your time is more important
than how you spend your money.
Money mistakes can be corrected,
but time is gone

waste your life
in illusion and fantasy thoughts, dwelling over past regrets and
apprehensions. Just ask time, and time will point out that
there are no survivors. -A
|Donít be fooled by the calendar.
There are only as many days

One person gets only a weekís

Spend them wisely.

They know that sensing the kairos (the prepared or ripe

|Time is an equal opportunity employer.
Each human being has exactly
the same number of hours and
minutes every day. Rich
people canít buy
Scientists canít invent new minutes.
And you canít save time
to spend it on another day.
Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving.

|Waste of time is the most extravagant
and costly of all
mellows people as it mellows wine, as long as the grapes are good.
You may set out to be a businesswoman or businessman but in the
course of time end up caring for a dying parent, orphaned niece,
or disabled brother.
You may encounter illness yourself and end up
being a writer, touching the heartstrings, not the purse strings
of other people.
Thatís why itís best to always be true to yourself
and God and to be flexible within His will.
He will use you.
is too slow for those who wait, too swift
for those who fear, too long for those who grieve,
too short for those who rejoice; but for
those who love, time is
eternity. -Henry Van Dyke
It is a strangely irrational notion that there is
something in the very flow
of time that will inevitably cure all
ills. Actually time
is neutral. It can be
used either destructively or constructively.
I am coming to feel that
the people of ill will have used
time much more effectively than the people of good will.
We will have to repent in this generation not merely for
the vitriolic words
and actions of the bad people, but for the
appalling silence of the good
people. -Martin Luther King, Jr.
|Time is the
inexplicable raw material of everything. With it,
all is possible; without it, nothing. The supply of
time is truly a daily miracle, and affair genuinely
astonishing when one examines it.
You wake up in the morning, and lo! your purse is
magically filled with twenty-four hours of the
unmanufactured tissue of the universe of your life!
It is yours. It is the most precious of possessions.
. . . No one can take it from you. It is unstealable.
And no one receives either more or less than you receive.
In the realm of time there is no aristocracy of wealth,
and no aristocracy of intellect. Genius is never
rewarded by even an extra hour a day. And there is
no punishment. Waste your infinitely precious
commodity as much as you will, and the supply will never
be withheld from you. . . . Moreover, you cannot draw on
the future. Impossible to get into debt! You
can only waste the passing moment. You cannot waste
tomorrow; it is kept for you. You cannot waste the
next hour; it is kept for you.
I have said the affair was a miracle. Is it not?
You have to live on this twenty-four hours of daily
time. Out of it you have to spin health, pleasure,
money, content, respect, and the evolution of your
immortal soul. Its right use, its most effective
use, is a matter of the highest urgency and of the most
thrilling actuality. All depends on that. Your
happiness--the elusive prize that you are clutching for,
my friends--depends on that.
If one cannot arrange that an income of twenty-four hours
a day shall exactly cover all proper items of expenditure,
one does muddle one's whole life indefinitely.
We shall never have any more time. We have, and we
have always had, all the time there is.
