When Youth and Pleasure meet
  To chase the glowing Hours with flying feet.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Childe Harold (canto III, st. 22)

Yet Time, who changes all, had altered him
  In soul and aspect as in age; years steal
    Fire from the mind as vigour from the limb;
      And life's enchanted cup but sparkles near the brim.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Childe Harold (canto III, st. 8)

Spared and blessed by Time,
  Looking tranquility.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Childe Harold (canto IV, 146)

O Time! the beautifier of the dead,
  Adorner of the ruin, comforter
    And only healer when the heart hath bled--
      Time! the corrector where our judgments err,
        The test of truth, love, sole philosopher,
          For all besides are sophists, from thy thrift
            Which never loses though it doth defer--
              Time, the avenger! unto thee I lift
                My hands, and eyes, and heart, and crave of thee a gift.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Childe Harold (canto IV, st. 130)

O Time! Why dost not pause? Thy scythe so dirty
  With rust, should surely cease to hack and hew.
    Reset it; shave more smoothly, also slower,
      If but to keep thy credit as a mower.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto xiv)

Thinkst thou existence doth depend on time?
  It doth; but actions are our epochs; mine
    Have made my days and nights imperishable,
      Endless, and all alike.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Manfred (act II, sc. 1)

Out upon Time! it will leave no more
  Of the things to come than the things before!
    Out upon Time! who forever will leave
      But enough of the past for the future to grieve.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Siege of Corinth (st. 18)

All must yield to the weight of years; conquest is not difficult for time.
      - Pedro Calderon de la Barca

The more we live, more brief appear
  Our life's succeeding stages;
    A day to childhood seems a year,
      And years like passing ages.
      - Thomas Campbell,
        A Thought Suggested by the New Year

Time's fatal wings do ever forward fly;
  To every day we live, a day we die.
      - Thomas Campion, Come, Cheerful Day

O Time! Time! how it brings forth and devours! And the roaring flood of existence rushes on forever similar, forever changing!
      - Thomas Carlyle

The curtains of Yesterday drop down, the curtains of To-morrow roll up; but Yesterday and To-morrow both are.
      - Thomas Carlyle

Time has only a relative existence.
      - Thomas Carlyle

That great mystery of Time, were there no other; the illimitable, silent, never-resting thing called Time, rolling, rushing on, swift, silent, like an all-embracing ocean tide, on which we and all the Universe swim like exhalations, like apparitions which are, and then are not: this is forever very literally a miracle; a thing to strike us dumb,--for we have no word to speak about it.
      - Thomas Carlyle, Heroes and Hero Worship
         (lecture I)

There is no remembrance which time does not obliterate, nor pain which death does not put an end to.
  [Sp., No ay memoria a quien el tiempo no acabe, ni dolor que nuerte no le consuma.]
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra),
        Don Quixote (III, 1)

The use of time is fate.
      - George Chapman

I recommend you to take care of the minutes, for the hours will take care of themselves.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope,

Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness, no laziness, no procrastination: never put off till to-morrow what you can do to-day.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope,
        Letters to his Son

Time destroys the speculations of man, but it confirms the judgment of nature.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

Time is the herald of truth.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

Time destroys the groundless conceits of men; it confirms decisions founded on reality.
  [Lat., Opinionum enim commenta delet dies; naturae judicia confirmat.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        De Natura Deorum (II, 2)

O what times (are these)! what morals!
  [Lat., O tempora! O mores!]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Orationes in Catilinam (I, 2)

No! no arresting the vast wheel of time,
  That round and round still turns with onward might,
    Stern, dragging thousands to the dreaded night
      Of an unknown hereafter.
      - Charles Cowden Clarke,
        Sonnet--The Course of Time

In the spirit of faith let us begin each day, and we shall be sure to "redeem the time" which it brings to us, by changing it into something definite and eternal. There is a deep meaning in this phrase of the apostle, to redeem time. We redeem time, and do not merely use it. We transform it into eternity by living it aright.
      - James Freeman Clarke

Time sheds a softness on remote objects or events, as local distance imparts to the landscape a smoothness and mellowness which disappear on a nearer approach.
      - William Benton Clulow
