Time Quotes (66) Spiritual Sayings
Summary: Definition of an Time. Time is a dimension in which events can be ordered from the past through the present into the future, and also the measure of durations of events and the intervals between them. Time has long been a major subject of study in religion, philosophy, and science, but defining it in a manner applicable to all fields without circularity has consistently eluded scholars. Nevertheless, diverse fields such as business, industry, sports, the sciences, music, dance, and the live theater all incorporate some notion of time into their respective measuring systems.
“Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.”
~ Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

Time is clay. Go make something. ~ Barbara Bach The Greeks had two words for time. Chronos is the time we usually keep an eye on. Kairos was our participation of time. Time that moves us so that we lose our sense of time; timeless time; moments at which the clocks seems to stop; feeding, renewing, more motherly time. It’s the time with which we feel one instead of outside of it, the self, the tao, the love that connects us to others. ~ Jean Shinoda Bolen Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in. ~ Napoleon Bonaparte Being rich is having money; being wealthy is having time. ~ Margaret Bonnano I believe you are your work. Don’t trade the stuff of your life, time, for nothing more than dollars. That’s a rotten bargain. ~ Rita Mae Brown I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see. The longer I live, the more my mind dwells upon the beauty and the wonder of the world. ~ John Burroughs Death is a challenge.

It is a net for catching days. It is a scaffolding on which a worker can stand and labor with both hands at sections of time. ~ Annie Dillard How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. ~ Annie Dillard Time is the physician that heals every grief. ~ Diphilus Creativity is the residue of time wasted. ~ Albert Einstein Nothing great is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. If you tell me that you desire a fig, I answer you that there must be time. Let if first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen. ~ Epictetus If you have yet to be called an incorrigible, defiant woman, don’t worry, there is still time. ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes The most important thing is to hold on, hold out, for your creative life, for your solitude, for your time to be and do, for your very life. ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes Now is the time to know that all that you do is sacred. ~ Hafiz Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable. ~ Sydney J. Harris Don't wait. The time will never be just right. ~ Napoleon Hill The feeling of being hurried is not usually the result of living a full life and having no time, it is on the contrary born of a vague fear that we are wasting our life. When we do not do the one thing we ought to do, we have no time for anything else – we are the busiest people in the world. ~ Eric Hoffer
Many people die with their music still in them. Why is this so? Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it, time runs out.
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. ~ Steve Jobs We must use time as a tool, not as a crutch. ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy The time is always right to do what is right. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr. Time takes it all, whether you want it to or not. Time takes it all, time bears it away, and in the end there is only darkness. Sometimes we find others in that darkness, and sometimes we lose them there again.
~ Stephen King

Success is how you collect your minutes. You spend millions of minutes to reach one triumph, one moment, then you spend maybe a thousand minutes enjoying it. If you were unhappy through those millions of minutes, what good is the thousand minutes of triumph? It doesn’t equate… Life is made of small pleasures. Good eye contact over the breakfast table with your wife. A moment of touching a friend. Happiness is made of those tiny successes. The big ones come too infrequently. If you don’t have all those zillions of tiny successes, the big ones don’t mean anything.
~ Norman Lear Nothing fruitful ever comes when plants are forced to flower in the wrong season. ~ Bette Bao Lord Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. ~ Sir John Lubbock Yesterday is a canceled check; tomorrow is a promissory note; today is the only cash you have – so spend it wisely. ~ Kay Lyons I learned that we can do anything, but we can't do everything... at least not at the same time. So think of your priorities not in terms of what activities you do, but when you do them. Timing is everything. ~ Dan Millman Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over. ~ Gloria Naylor There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world; and that is an idea whose time has come. ~ Isaac Newton So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land! ~ Peter Pan I value my time. I choose to use it wisely and do not let others steal it from me. ~ Paula Peisner You rarely have time for everything you want in this life, so you have to make choices, and hopefully your choices can come from a deep sense of who you are. ~ Fred Rogers Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you can’t get more time. ~ Jim Rohn If you want to attract a life partner as your soul mate, there are several illusions you will need to relinquish. One is that your soul mate is someone you will be with for the rest of your life. You can have a soul mate relationship that lasts a few weeks, months, or years.

Schulz
