Life is now. There was never a time when your life was not now, nor will there ever be.

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your hometown
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but you’re older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death
Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say
Home, home again, I like to be here when I can
And when I come home cold and tired
Its good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field, the tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now. Johan Wolfgang Goethe
As if you could kill time without injuring eternity. Henry David Thoreau
But what minutes! Count them by sensation, and not by calendars, and each moment is a day. Benjamin Disraeli
- Each of us is born with a personal bank account.
- It’s name is time.
- Every morning it credits you with 86,400 seconds.
- Every night it writes off as lost whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose.
- It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft.
- Each day it opens a new account for you.
- Each night it burns the remains of the day.
- If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours.
- There is no going back. There is no drawing against tomorrow. You must live in the present and focus on today’s deposits.
- Invest your time wisely and you will receive the utmost in all you need. Chris Hermes
Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. Carl Sandburg

To choose time is to save time. Francis Bacon
Who forces time is pushed back by time; who yields to time finds time on his side. The Talmud
For everything there is a season
and a time for every matter under heaven
a time to be born and a time to die
a time to plant and a time to pluck up what is planted
a time to kill and a time to heal
a time to break down and a time to build up
a time to weep and a time to laugh
a time to mourn and a time to dance
a time to throw away stones and a time to gather stones together
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing
a time to seek and a time to lose
a time to keep and a time to throw away
a time to tear and a time to sew
a time to keep silence and a time to speak
a time to love and a time to hate
a time for war and a time for peace.
A good holiday is one spent among people whose notions of time are vaguer than yours. John B. Priestly
This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. Ralph Waldo Emerson
To get all there is out of living, we must employ our time wisely, never being in too much of a hurry to stop and sip life, but never losing our sense of the enormous value of a minute. Robert Updegraff
