Time on his head has snowed, yet still 'tis borne aloft.
      - Edward Young

Nought treads so silent as the foot of Time;
  Hence we mistake our autumn for our prime.
      - Edward Young, Love of Fame
         (satire V, l. 497)

Procrastination is the thief of time:
  Year after year it steals, till all are fled,
    And to the mercies of a moment leaves
      The vast concerns of an eternal scene.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night I, l. 390)

The bell strikes one. We take no note of time
  But from its loss: to give it then a tongue
    Is wise in man.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night I, l. 55)

Time is eternity;
  Pregnant with all eternity can give;
    Pregnant will all that makes archangels smile.
      Who murders Time, he crushes in the birth
        A power ethereal, only not adorn'd.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night II, l. 107)

Time wasted is existence, used is life.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night II, l. 149)

We push time from us, and we wish him back;
  . . . .
    Life we think long and short; death seek and shun.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night II, l. 174)

In leaves, more durable than leaves of brass,
  Writes our whole history.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night II, l. 275)

We see time's furrows on another's brow,
  . . . .
    How few themselves in that just mirror see!
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night V, l. 627)

In records that defy the tooth of time.
      - Edward Young, The Statesman's Creed

Man seems to be deficient in nothing so much as he is in time.
      - Zeno

The quarter of an hour before dinner is the worst that suitors can choose.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann

Time is never more misspent than while we declaim against the want of it; all our actions are then tinctured with peevishness. The yoke of life is certainly the least oppressive when we carry it with good-humor; and in the shades of rural retirement, when we have once acquired a resolution to pass our hours with economy, sorrowful lamentations on the subject of time misspent and business neglected never torture the mind.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann
