Time glides by with constant movement, not unlike a stream. For neither can a stream stay its course, nor can the fleeting hour.
  [Lat., Assiduo labuntur tempora motu,
    Non secus ad flumen. Neque enim consistere flumen.
      Nec levis hora potest.]
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso), Metamorphoses
         (XV, 180)

Time that devours all things.
  [Lat., Tempus edax rerum.]
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso), Metamorphoses
         (XV, 234)

Time is generally the best medicine.
  [Lat., Temporis ars medicina fere est.]
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso),
        Remedia Amoris (131)

Time makes more converts than reason.
      - Thomas Paine

These are the times that try men's souls. The Summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the Service of their country, but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like Hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have the consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheaply we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything of value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.
      - Thomas Paine, The American Crisis (no. 1)

It is only necessary to give to each thing the time which it claims.
      - Agnolo Pandolfini

Let time that makes you homely, make you sage.
      - Thomas Parnell, An Elegy to an Old Beauty
         (l. 35)

O time! whose verdicts mock our own, the only righteous judge art thou!
      - Thomas William Parsons

Time heals griefs and quarrels, for we change and are no longer the same persons.
      - Blaise Pascal

Time, the foe of man's dominion,
  Wheels around in ceaseless flight,
    Scattering from his hoary pinion
      Shades of everlasting night.
      - Thomas Love Peacock,
        The Genius of the Thames
         (pt. II, st. 42)

Man yields to death; and man's sublimest works
  Must yield at length to Time.
      - Thomas Love Peacock, Time (l. 65)

Time is lord of thee:
  Thy wealth, thy glory. and thy name are his.
      - Thomas Love Peacock, Time (l. 71)

The present is our own; but while we speak,
  We cease from its possession, and resign
    The stage we tread on, to another race,
      As vain, and gay, and mortal as ourselves.
      - Thomas Love Peacock, Time (l. 9)

His golden locks time hath to silver turned,
  O time too swift! O swiftness never ceasing!
    His youth 'gainst Time and Age hath ever spurned,
      But spurned in vain! Youth waneth by increasing.
      - George Peele, Sonnet--Polyhymnia

His golden locks time hath to silver turned.
      - George Peele, Sonnet--Polyhymnia

There is nothing of which we are apt to be so lavish as of time, and about which we ought to be more solicitous, since without it we can do nothing in this world. Time is what we want most, but what, alas! we use worst.
      - William Penn

Time is the wisest counsellor.
      - Pericles

Wait for the wisest of all councilors, time.
      - Pericles

Seize time by the forelock.
      - Pittacus of Mitylene,
        also said by Thales of Miletus

The happier the time, the quicker it passes.
  [Lat., Tanto brevius omne, quanto felicius tempus.]
      - Pliny the Younger (Caius Caecilius Secundus),
        Epistles (VII, 14)

Pythagoras, when he was asked what time was, answered that it was the soul of this world.
      - Plutarch

Time is the wisest of all counselors.
      - Plutarch

From a wild weird clime that lieth, sublime
  Out of Space--out of Time.
      - Edgar Allan Poe, Dreamland (l. 7)

I am satisfied to trifle away my time, rather than let it stick by me.
      - Alexander Pope

Years following years steal something ev'ry day.
  At last they steal us from ourselves away.
      - Alexander Pope, Imitations of Horace
         (bk. II, ep. 2)
