I never knew the old gentleman with the scythe and hour-glass bring anything but gray hairs, thin cheeks, and loss of teeth.
      - John Dryden

Time's abyss, the common grave of all.
      - John Dryden

(Time) with his silent sickle.
      - John Dryden, Astroea Redux (l. 110)

And write whatever Time shall bring to pass
  With pens of adamant on plates of brass.
      - John Dryden, Palamon and Arcite

Who well lives, long lives: for this age of ours
  Should not be numbered by years, daies and hours.
      - Guillaume de Salluste Du Bartas,
        Divine Weekes and Workes--Second Week--Fourth Day
         (bk. II)

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.
      - Albert Einstein

There will be time, there will be time
  To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet.
      - T.S. Eliot (Thomas Stearns Eliot),
        The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock

If you could throw as an alms to those who would use it well the time that you fritter away, how many beggars would become rich!
      - Elizabeth, nee Pauline Elisabeth Ottilie Luise (used ps Carmen Sylva)

Daughters of Time, the hypocritic Days,
  Muffled and dumb like barefoot dervishes,
    And marching single in an endless file.
      To each they offer gifts after his will,
        Bread, kingdoms, stars, and sky that holds them all.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

How silent, how spacious, what room for all, yet without place to insert an atom--in graceful succession, in equal fullness, in balanced beauty, the dance of the hours goes forward still. Like an odor of incense, like a strain of music, like a sleep, it is inexact and boundless. It will not be dissected, nor unraveled, nor shown.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Time dissipates to shining ether the solid angularity of facts.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Tobacco, coffee, alcohol, hashish, prussic acid, strychnine, are weak dilutions; the surest poison is time. This cup which nature puts to our lips, has a wonderful virtue, surpassing that of any other draught. It opens the senses, adds power, fills us with exalted dreams, which we call hope, love, ambition, science; especially it creates a craving for larger draughts of itself.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Let us leave hurry to slaves.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson, Essay on Manners

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. No man has learned anything rightly, until he knows that every day is Doomsday.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson,
        Society and Solitude--Work and Days

Procrastination brings loss, delay danger.
  [Lat., Dilatio damnum habet, mora periculum.]
      - Desiderius Gerhard Erasmus, Adolescens

Know we how many tomorrows the gods intend for our todays.
      - Euripides

Time will reveal everything to posterity; it is a babbler and speaks even when no question is put.
      - Euripides

When it is not necessary to make a decision, it is necessary not to make a decision.
      - 2nd Viscount Falkland, Lucius Cary

We all find time to do what we really want to do.
      - William Feather

Time is like a ship which never anchors; while I am on board, I had better do those things that may profit me at my landing, than practice such as shall cause my commitment when I come ashore.
      - Owen Felltham (Feltham)

God, who is liberal in all his other gifts, shows us, by the wise economy of His providence, how circumspect we ought to be in the management of our time, for He never gives us two moments together.
      - Francois de Salignac Fenelon

The best general means to insure the profitable employment of our time is to accustom ourselves to living in continual dependence upon the Spirit of God and His law, receiving, every instant, whatever He is pleased to bestow; consulting Him in every emergency requiring instant action, and having recourse to Him in our weaker moments when virtue seems to fail.
      - Francois de Salignac Fenelon

Time is given us that we may take care for eternity; and eternity will not be too long to regret the loss of our time if we have misspent it.
      - Francois de Salignac Fenelon

Grief counts the seconds; happiness forgets the hours.
      - J. de Finod

Time is the greatest of all tyrants. As we go on towards age, he taxes our health, limbs, faculties, strength, and features.
      - John Foster (1)
